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?

Whoever the ‘they’ is or are.

How was this even the drill and how does it continue to be?

Don’t ever think I’ve got it all figured out. For Christ’s sake, I’m a millennial and I figure the whole ‘misconception’ applies to me too. Millennials can’t sit still. Millennials are impatient. Millennials this. Millennials that.

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.

This may not be how most people view a career, especially if you are working in an environment where your efforts are not recognized, but, for lots of people looking to make something of themselves, either in industries like insurance, or customer service, this is a necessary evil.

Your Small Business: For You, For Your Workers, For the Community

When you think of your business, you probably think regarding your goods and services, and your profits. That, in a nutshell, is what most companies boil down to. But if you take all of the color out of life, then it looks terribly drab.

As such, you shouldn’t just think of your business as a profit-generating machine; you also need to recognize it in terms of its wider standing in the community.

Do You Feel Safe In Your Job?

This might seem like such a broad question to ask, but do you truly feel safe in your job? Not safe as in your physical safety, but in other aspects as well. Do you feel mentally stable? Is your job secure? Do you feel happy coming into work each day?

Your mental stability is so important and your job or workplace plays an active role in how you’ll generally react. If you’re feeling unsafe, it should naturally result to stress and could affect how you treat loved ones or people around you.

Do You Know How To Keep Your Customers Happy?

Every business will have their opinions on what matters the most in the day to day running of their operations. Some will say profit, others will say traffic, and then there are those that will always prioritize customer satisfaction.

And it’s those guys that are going to go far! Why? Because businesses might be about making money, but if you’ve not got happy customers, you’re never going to be able to make as much money as you’d like.

Why Some Immigrants Struggle to Find Employment

*This is a collaborative post.

If you plan to move to a new country in the future or you’re an immigrant right now, this article will help to highlight some of the issues that could stand in your way when looking for a job.

In most instances, the problems migrants face relate to communication. However, some other stumbling blocks could prevent you from starting a new life and earning a salary for your family.

Most of my posts focus so much on communication because it’s no fuss. And it’s really absurd how some people treat a person who can’t communicate in a certain language forgetting that if this person were communicating in his/ her mother tongue, the situation will be a whole lot different.
