Fact is, we are no longer impressed by the miracle of modern agriculture, affordable electricity, air conditioning, smooth roads, suspension bridges, winged-flight, or any number of other things that used to unite us with a shared sense of wonder. This is why we blame the plumber for charging us “too much.” We resent him, precisely because we need him. The very jobs we told our kids to avoid, are the same jobs we bitch about paying for. From healthcare to roadside assistance, construction to computer repair — we begrudge the skills we don’t possess, and disparage the people who have them.
—  Mike Rowe
After college, once you get the first job, start looking for a better job after a year or two. Don't stay out of loyalty.

Because trust me, no company is loyal to their employees. Be respectful and professional, but loyalty in a company is rarely noticed and appreciated - unless maybe if its your dad’s company.

As a person who has worked for a same company for 6 years after graduating, i found out i didn’t get a single raise within it unless i ask for it every fucking year, never got much other benefit than initially signed while studying at school.

So i started applying for 5 months and finally got a job, it pays me almost 5 (edit: 4 is more accurate+ benefits such as health care, lunch, gym etc…) times as much as i used to. My friend from same school, with same seniority was getting 4 times my salary for the last 2 years already.

My mistake was thinking that being loyal to this company was gonna in return make the company loyal to me, the company only wants lower costs, loyalty has no place here.

Edit: wow, didn’t expect this response, also apparently this is very common in IT sector (but applies to pretty much all industry), and i am in the IT sector :/ - still feels so unfair.

Edit 2 : as some pointed out, try not to be a “job hopper”, this depends heavily on the industry you are working in though.

Edit 3: this is not a golden a rule, use your own brain, only you know your situation best - just don’t let loyalty for a company ever be the biggest priority, your career should be your priority.

Ideal Careers Based On Your Zodiac Sign -- Aquarius

Aquarius - January 20 - February 18

Aquarians are true, free spirits. But don’t mistake this for flighty workers—they’re hardworking, albeit with an out-of-the-box attitude (i.e. you will tackle a project in the middle of the night if you can’t sleep, only to want to nap in the middle of the day because you already “did the work”). You’re social but also kind of a loner, making you adept at handling team assignments as well as working on your own. You tend to come up with ideas that at first thought are “wacky” before being deemed “brilliant”, and you tend to never state the “obvious"—which make you bad in project discussions, since you’re 2 steps ahead of everyone else. Take it from Fox: "Your unusual methods can be quite appealing to those who enjoy being near your personal brand of creative genius.” Meaning, not everyone is going to “get” you.

Ideal careers: Science or tech (if you can explore new theories or applications), graphic design or photography, and even project management—if you get to explore new ways of doing something. You’re also an ideal entrepreneur or independent contractor, as you rebel against corporate culture and work best on your own schedule.

A quasi-Machiavellian guide to a happy healthy workplace

Look, for those of us who are socially awkward, the only way to Do Social Well is by intention. Unfortunately, our society often conflates Being Social By Intention with manipulativeness, so fine. Here it is. The vaguely manipulative list of tips for happy coworkers and positive interactions. Go forth and intentionally be nice for your own personal gain (and also because Nice is Nice).

Note: by no means do you HAVE to do any of these. These are recommendations and techniques, not rules. Some are more directly social, and some focus on workplace etiquette that will cast a positive light on you.

1. Bond with co-workers by asking about their lives. The simplest! Most people love talking about themselves. If you’re trying to create a social connection with your coworkers (and yes, we’re all aware that having social connections in the workplace helps your career), a great way is to ask about their free time and what they’ve been up to. I know this sounds too basic, but seriously, just occasionally ask about their lives and remember tidbits. Even just a quick hello and a smile in the morning helps. If you’re already doing this, awesome.

2. If you’ve had a negative interaction with a coworker that day, follow up with something positive and casual. All workplaces have conflict, and occasionally you’ll need to disagree with someone, or find yourself looking back on an interaction and realizing it may have been a bit negative. That’s fine! If you’re concerned that something didn’t go well, follow up an hour or two later by complimenting their shirt or asking about their weekend. Everyone knows that this type of social interaction isn’t about the shirt or weekend but is a way of saying you have a workplace relationship and reaffirming it. 

3. When replying to an email chain in different colours, don’t use a red font when you’re angry. I know — it’s so tempting. But by slyly using a calm colour like blue or green, your annoyed replies to the chain will suddenly seem calmer. Ditto goes for the exclamation points, bold, underlines, and emphatic hyperbole; leave them out for the most part. It’s one more small psychological trick to keep you looking level-headed even when you’re telling someone in writing that they’re wrong.

4. An overall positive attitude will make them take you seriously when you’re not positive. It sucks to have to put on a positive attitude when you’re not feeling it, but not only will it help smooth things in the workplace, it will also make coworkers sit up and pay attention when you’re not positive. On the flip side, if you complain frequently, they’ll get used to tuning you out and ignore you when it’s really important. Just self-monitor and assess whether the complaint is bonding, necessary self expression, or just saying something for the sake of saying something. The latter can be left out.

5. Acknowledge the successes of others and give credit where it’s due. Whether you’re talking to your boss or your coworkers, if you’re an honest person who lifts up others in the workplace and gives credit where it’s due, you’ll be seen as someone with integrity. If you have an eye on management, this is especially important, and something a good boss is actively looking for. Not only that, but it will contribute to a positive work environment. Win all around!

6. Maturely acknowledge your mistakes… when necessary. You don’t want to go around constantly telling people you screwed up, but a mature concession that something is your fault once in a while will also show that you have integrity. Strategically used, this is especially great because people then know that if there’s a big screw-up and you say it’s not your fault, you’re being honest.

7. Don’t get too involved in a coworker’s personal life/politics. This isn’t to say you can’t make friends at work, just that you should choose wisely. When carrying out tip #1 it can be tempting to get really personal or start talking politics if a coworker starts steering the conversation in that direction… but in the long run, getting into personal lives in the workplace is risky and can cause a lot of tension if stuff goes badly. Keep it light, don’t go into politics or drama. 

8. If something’s gone wrong, strike “you” from your vocabulary. If you’re talking about a problem — to a coworker, boss, or client — the passive voice is your friend. People have a tendency to hear “you” as accusatory, even if that isn’t your intention. An email that says “The file we received did not include section” is better than “You didn’t send us that section” or even “The email you sent didn’t include that section”.

9. On the flip side, if it’s good, make it about them. “We really appreciated your email” is stronger than “This email was appreciated”. “Your team would benefit from my experience in this field” is better than “I am experienced in this field”.

10. Pay attention to how often you interrupt coworkers. Interruption is part of the natural flow of conversation and not always a bad thing, but it’s important to pay attention to who we’re interrupting, when, and how often. For example, studies show men interrupt women more frequently, so if you’re a guy, it’s worth biting back the urge to add your say and waiting until a coworker is finished their piece. This small action can really improve workplace relations.

11. Employ the one-two punch. If you have something negative that needs to be said, follow it or preface it with something good. This works especially well in emails: thank them or compliment them on something, then bring up the issues (or the other ay around if that’s better). This keeps your work emails more emotionally neutral and makes it harder for people to dismiss you out of hand.

12. Don’t gossip.  Again, gossip can be a habit that’s easy to fall into when trying to follow tip #1. The difference between regular small talk and gossip is that gossip shines a negative light on people or shares unnecessary things about their personal lives. Remember #7: don’t get too personal. While it’s great to share positive things about a coworker, boss, or client, negative talk should be reserved for when you’re trying to solve an issue.

13. Don’t send that angry email just yet. It’s okay to feel it. It’s okay to write it. Take a step back and let yourself cool off, then send a fabulously well-planned email using the above points. It’s much more satisfying to both get your way and be seen as a paragon of virtue, anyway. And if you do trip up and send that angry email — see tip #2.

14. Everyone is too busy. The clearer your emails are, the more likely they are to be understood and responded to. Writing emails to bosses, coworkers, and clients is always a challenge, and half the time they don’t respond with what you need anyway. I could write a whole post about how to get people to respond appropriately to your emails, but it boils down to three tips: a) keep it short and simple, including short sentences and using bullet points where necessary; b) try to keep emails to one or two main questions/things you need from someone; and c) end with a prompt for reply, like “When can we expect this?” or “Does that work for you?” (If you’re wondering why this tip is included, it’s because clearer email communication creates a happier and healthier workplace.)

15. If you’re having a problem with someone, calmly discuss it with them first. I know; it’s hard. But if you’re trying to be seen as a positive employee with integrity, it’s essential to talk with coworkers when there’s an issue. Just calmly state the issue in a non-accusatory way (see tip #8) and what effect it’s having. If there are multiple problems, choose one and focus on it; no one likes a laundry list of things they’re doing wrong. That should be reserved for special circumstances.

16. One problem, two solutions. Problems always arise. Instead of just saying “here’s the problem and I can’t do more work until we fix it”, try offering them a choice of two different solutions. This will make things move faster, make everyone happier, and give you a reputation for being a problem-solver. It will also allow you to guide things in the direction you want (after all, you’re the one coming up with these solutions). People sometimes use problems to avoid doing their work, so being a solutions person will also make your coworkers feel you’re doing your fair share.

17. Eventually, your internal opinion of someone will always become clear. We all like to think we can keep our opinions to ourselves, but if we let ourselves think of someone as an idiot, it will always eventually be reflected in our actions and tone. Try to find something positive in your coworkers, bosses, and clients. If you can’t find anything at all to mitigate your negative opinion, then you might want to try finding a different workplace.

At the end of the day, two things are true: one, that people who get on well in the workplace tend to do better in their careers — and two, that not everyone can be effortlessly social. For some of us, it takes effort. I hope this helps!

At a new job, if someone is showing you how to complete a task that you will need to repeat over and over, look up how to do it independently of their instructions. If they've been there a while, odds are they've developed shortcuts.

Without doing it the long way, there’s no way of understanding the process. If it all goes wrong, it will be your fault, even if the instructions you got were flawed.

Contained within is a list of career path choices for each Zodiac sign.  This list pertains to having the zodiac sign on the 10th house cusp (midheaven) of your birth chart.  These can also work for overall sign dominance in a chart.  Your 2nd house cusp sign can also show areas where you can gain income with these signs for alternate possibilities.

anonymous asked:

Hiii do you know anything I can do to attract a job? I've been applying like crazy but it's a year now and I'm using all the help I could get! Thank you x

Great question and I would be happy to help.  A bunch of my friends joke around about me being able to find jobs in a snap.  It is one of my “magic” powers.  

Before we get to any magic, might I advise a couple of different routes you may not be considering?  I always like to take a real world approach before handing out any spells.  I am not an old lady by any means, but I have learned a thing or two, and I think I might be able to help.  (Whether you like this type of advice is entirely up to you, but take it from me: the job market can be tough to navigate and sometimes it helps hearing this kind of advice from someone who has been down that road.)

Originally posted by tinaillustration

1.  Have you recently updated/revised your resume and cover letter?  Seriously, sometimes people do not hire you based on the content in your cover letter.  The wording could be off-putting, it could be too long (or too short), it could be not informative enough.  Cultivating your cover letter and resume is like crafting a spell; it needs to be worded correctly, express who you are as an employee in a concise manner, and make you seem as hireable as possible.  (You could also put a sigil on your cover letter and resume without anyone ever knowing using invisible ink or printing in white.) . A great website for formatting your cover letter and resume to make it look like THE BOMB DOT COM is CVMKR.

2.  Have you applied for every available job, including the ones that you may think you are “above”?  Listen, I have a BFA in Photographic Imagery; I didn’t exactly choose the most profitable and available field in the world.  I loved every bit of time I spent in college learning about art (and other various topics) and I am incredibly proud of what I accomplished.  I am still very passionate about my work, but the fact of the matter is that dream jobs are incredibly hard to come by.  There were plenty of times I had to suck up my pride and apply at places I thought I was too good for.  That includes fast food chains and restaurants, data entry, and even sales positions for companies I knew were absolute bullshit (the sales companies, not everything else.)  It took me years of gaining experience, freelancing, working for next to absolutely nothing, and busting my ass to get to where I am today.  So, if you haven’t gone down to McDonald’s or Walmart, you might want to lace up your boots and get to walking.  Money is money anyway you slice it, even if it means working at a place you aren’t necessarily are proud of.  I know that seems like tough love, but it is true.

My dad once told me, “You only get out of life what you put into it.”  I put in hours upon hours of literal blood, sweat, and tears, sleepless nights, going hungry and almost being homeless, paying thousands upon thousands of dollars back to student loans, and I have only JUST gotten what I would consider to be a dream job.  I believed in what I was doing every day.  I got up even when I didn’t want to.  You just have to keep trying, even when things seem grim.

3.  There are quite a few spells involving careers and money.  I am going to refer you to @urbanspellcraft and @flowing-to-the-ocean’s spells.  I trust their work to help you along the way, but just know that magic can only take you so far.  In the amount of time you would spend working during an average work day (8+ hours), you need searching and applying for jobs, calling employers for interviews, and going to temp agencies.  If not, you won’t find a job.  Take it from me, as someone who spent the better part of a decade struggling to find a career and finally–FINALLY–got her dream job.  You can do it, you just have to try.
