43 Motivational Quotes to Inspire you During those Difficult and Challenging Times Confronted in your Job Search

Searching for a new job is an exhilarating, exciting, challenging, frustrating, maddening and heart breaking experience all at once.

Interviewing, constantly tweaking the resume, social media and real-life networking, creating catchy cover letters, running out to interviews, getting rejected, not hearing back from the company after you thought you did amazingly well, and a myriad of other ups and downs could be very discouraging and disheartening.

It is a time like this that you could really use a pick-me-up.  A stirring speech from a coach, life-changing statement from a favorite teacher, or words of wisdom and encouragement from a parent.

Also, we could seek out the advice of successful people who have been through their own challenging times.

I’d appreciate some positive vibes today! I’m supposed to hear back about getting a second interview for this environmental compliance job today! The recruiter who did my first interview said he’d hire me on the spot if it was entirely up to him!

warcrowned  asked:

I see no overwatch au I am disappointed

owo whats this ??? || accepting

I have honestly never thought on this and it turned out to be much harder then originally thought. shout out to eden ( @osavior ) and jack ( @toliiberate ) for helping me with this cause idk what I would have done without them sdjhgfhsd

  1. Percy is not a hero or a bad guy in this verse ( finally ) and is for the most part just human. graduated college with a degree in marine biology and works oceanography more focusing in on groups impact ( output / etc ) on their local environment ( think modern compliance jobs in coordination with the US EPA for example ). I get to say this cause this is kinda like what I do on a different scale. sucks that he’s not really working research but the times aren’t in favor.
  2. overwatch has the environmental division ??? which has the ecopoints. and since I can do whatever I want Percy is mostly stationed on a base towards the bottom of the ocean since he’s not dealing with anyone’s shit. he just wants to spend time chatting it up with the fish and not dying, thanks ( plus I’m going to milk the ocean trope for all its worth ).
  3. Jack said “ what if he got hired by some company to study marine life and the affect of humanity on it and whatever and it was all great, but he later found out that… the company lied somehow? like. they’re using the data he collects to… make… things… worse?” which like hoooooooo boy can we get fired up about this. he literally cannot stand that idea thank you very much so maybe he ditched the old jobs he had been working for overwatch in this scenario. and since the ecopoints are used to study the changing of the earth and stuff ??? the ocean can tell us a lot just through carbon dioxide ( which I understand is a form of climatology but bare with me ) levels let alone monitoring things like seismic activity / etc since my boy is very smart and should get to use that brain for something for once.
  4. so like, when overwatch is shut down the ecopoints are shut down to which is not a fun time in the slightest since he was already disenfranchised with the way a lot of people / governments / companies were watching over the environmental factors like the ocean ( which in some senses are less obvious then others ). maybe possibly passive aggressively he continues doing what he was doing since he’s tired of everyone’s bullshit.
  5. I don’t have a fifth point cause this was hard enough but self indulgent shipping thing with eden that they met there ha take that au meme

Has 2014 been another horrible, no good, terrible year for your career? Here are 12 signs that you need to find a great new job in 2015!

By Jack J. Kelly

Are you stuck in a dead-end, going nowhere job?

Don’t despair, you are not alone.

We have prepared a handy checklist to help you decide whether you are just cranky during the holiday season or your really, absolutely, positively need to find a new and fantastic job.

1. You Have a Mean, Vindictive, Jealous and/or Narcissistic Boss. 

Dealing with someone like this day in and day out will not only drain your spirits, but also your work product. You may feel resentful or angry at your boss on a regular basis, which will prevent you from communicating well and doing your best. You shouldn’t have to report to someone who isn’t respectful and makes life miserable for you.

External image

2. Management Doesn’t Care About Your Division. 

This doesn’t bode well for your personal sense of value or your job’s security. As soon as profits go down, you and/or your department are in the cross fire. Additionally, for areas like compliance, if management isn’t on board with your suggestions, you may feel that your job has no meaning or that you are incapable of making any difference. Not only do you deserve to feel important and valued; it’s necessary for your financial security as well.

3. No Raise/Bonus for 2 Consecutive Years and/or No Discussion of Promotions.

One of the aspects of a good job is that you feel there are opportunities to move up and take on new challenges. If this is not the case, your professional growth may be stunted, and it might not be worth your while to stay.

If you get no raise for one year, fine, maybe there was a good reason. But two years in a row gives you the right to wonder whether you’re being treated well enough and whether your job is as valued as it should be.

4. Few Internal Promotions for Key Roles. 

If management is always hiring new people for the top jobs, you may feel perplexed as to why they didn’t choose you, or a great colleague you work with. This point is particularly important when the firm didn’t even interview or consider you or your colleagues for the role. This is a sign that it might not be a place that sufficiently rewards company personnel.

5. The Firm is Engaged in Unethical Activities. 

You may object to this on a moral level and feel uncomfortable working with and for the people around you. And if your firm gets caught, you all could be out of a job.

External image

6. Other People Leave and Aren’t Replaced. 

This is a sign that the firm is looking to shed people it deems unnecessary expenses. Beware.

External image

7. You Are Given More and More Work Without Recognition. 

You might not want to spend much longer at a place that overloads you with tons of thankless work. Career satisfaction demands recognition of hard work.

External image

8. Absence of Camaraderie and Company Spirit. 

If no one at your firm talks to each other, likes each other, or is excited to be there, work will feel like drudgery every day. This will negatively affect both your happiness and work product (as well as everyone else’s). The day-to-day spirit of a company is more important than many people think.

External image

9.  Lack of Collaboration with Other Divisions. The future of work involves collaborations. If you’re not making connections and learning how to work with other areas, you might not be getting the training you want from your workplace.

External image

10. Excessive Politics/Infighting. 

This makes the workplace feel tense and possibly terrifying. If you’re not already in the muck of it, be prepared to be dragged down.

11. No Meaningful Work. 

It’s hard to sustain yourself day in and day out when you find your work empty.

External image
Passion is what drives greatness and if you don’t have passion you will stagnate and die.

12. You see no light at the end of the tunnel. 

If you don’t feel that you’re growing and you can’t see your job changing in the next few years or how your job is going to lead you to your next step…it’s probably time to leave. You don’t want to stall and get older and more cynical; then taking the next step will be even harder.
