Landing A Job Despite Having Bad Credit

Oh yes – a poor credit rating can affect your chances of securing a job. Just ask the one in ten people who told a Demos survey that’s why they didn’t get a job. And, if you think they are over exaggerating, another study found that nearly 50% of employers conducted a credit check.

That Love-Hate Relationship of the 9-5

Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I don’t understand the whole concept of the 9-5 life too. I’m like, who the hell thought this was worth it? How did they come to accept this?

When we think big business, we need to think on an international scale. If you’re supplying business to a single city, country or even continent, then you’re thinking too small.

Keeping the Office Looking Spick and Span, Inside and Out

Your office space is what many of the potential clients or colleagues that enter it will judge your whole business/ work style on. It is one of the aspects of your job/ business that will make them decide to enter into business with you, or avoid you entirely.

The Best Ways To Survive Working In A Customer Service Role

Being a millennial, it means you are unfairly maligned at points, you are described as lazy, entitled, and apparently we expect something for nothing. Yet, the vast majority of career go-getting millennials find themselves working in customer service roles, namely contact centers.
