    Corporate Secrets: Signs That You’re Promotable

    Corporate Secrets: Signs That You’re Promotable

    A friend of mine approached me and asked me, what are the signs that you're promotable? At first, I felt pity for him. This is because we graduated from college at the same time and both of us were lucky enough to get employed at the same company. While I have moved up the corporate ladder and I am currently the head of my department, he is stuck at the junior level. In addition, his wife just gave birth to twins and the pressure is mounting on him to move up the corporate ladder. This a common problem faced by many individuals. As human beings, we do not love being stuck in our place, we like moving forward.

    Reasons Good Employees Quit

    Reasons Good Employees Quit

    Many managers struggle to figure out the reasons good employees quit and why their staff turnover is always so high. This is because most of these employees do not explain themselves as they walk out the door, saying only that they have decided to move on or have been offered a position elsewhere, which only adds to the problem. Managers will most likely blame others for the constant outward flow of good people, but they should really be looking at themselves and what they are doing to add to the reasons good employees quit, since the majority of the time, it is their own actions causing it.

    Best 80s Business Movies

    Being an entrepreneur is not for the faint of heart. The stress and the long hours can be demanding, but eventually, it will all (hopefully) pay off in the long run. Through the struggles, there is growth, and that is where entrepreneurs learn the most. Many films, like the best 80s business movies, show the world of business from many different points of view. Although each of the characters from the films are in different situations, in business and in life, they all have one thing in common: success. These films range from satirical, informative to downright comedic, but that doesn't take away from the lessons you can gain from them all.

    The Winter Break Woes

    The Winter Break Woes

    If you're anything like me - an overworked, underpaid college student - you haven't done much but work, sit on your ass, watch television, and catch up on your sanity since the end of the semester. Now this was obviously not the intention as finals came to a close and I praised the universe for giving me the strength to make it to the end of the single most stressful few months of my life. Realistically I was excited to take advantage of the free time that had recently been held hostage by studying U.S. history, keeping up on contemporary issues in the media, and learning how to be a soulless PR professional. I was going to get back into great shape, write every day (I'm a journalism major, soon to be English lit.), do some pleasure reading, maybe get back into some painting and crafts, or come up with a new recipe. Ahh, how optimistic I was. While I have been working on a script a friend asked me to tackle (slowly but surely), I've been overwhelmed with the amount of goals I have yet to accomplish. It's been roughly two weeks and I haven't put myself on any exercise or health regimen, this is the first writing I've semi accomplished, I've done zero pleasure readying, painting, or crafts, and I sure haven't felt creative enough to invent a new recipe. Though I do still intend on mustering up the motivation to pursue the aforementioned, the fact that I haven't was really started getting to me. When I woke up I took that frustration to a search for freelance writing positions, and when I of course couldn't think of anything to write about, I got to thinking.
