Have you ever been on a job search and found a position that matches your skills and endeavors to the T or received an offer letter from an organization you were really interested in ...then realized this office is in another state? The thought of picking yourself up and moving to a brand new city and state can seem like a crazy idea, but if you take a closer look, you may be in for an amazing opportunity.
In today's day and age, we use our powerful cell phones to help us with our job search. We scroll through app and website job listings and we may have even applied to a job right from the comfort of our phones. We've called and scheduled interviews, checked and sent emails to see if we have heard from any potential employers. In a nutshell, we've used a lot of features on our phone to search for our next opportunity in the the workforce -- except for maybe one: texting.
After Your First 90 Days At A New Job
"Congratulations! You made it past your first 90 days at your new job. Hopefully, it went smooth and now you can focus on building your tenure into something great. Even if your first 90 days was a little rocky, you can still turn it around into something positive. Your first 90 days was a time of acclimation, learning and fighting the jitters. Beyond your first 90 days there is still a lot to learn but now it’s more about performing and contributing." - The Daily MBA
Sending a thank you note or email after a job interview is standard practice. Once you land a job, knowing when and why to send professional thank you letters is less clear.
For instance, should you send a thank you note to the former boss that wrote you a fantastic recommendation letter? (Yes, you should.)
So you’ve just interviewed for your dream job (or at least a dreamy job) and as far as you’re concerned, you nailed it! It’s only a matter of time before they call you with an offer. But after a couple of weeks pass without a peep, you start to get a sinking feeling that perhaps it wasn’t the slam-dunk you imagined.
You expect a tough interview, but what happens when you add into the mix a rude interviewer that’d rather crack a whip than a smile to lighten the mood? Should you keep calm and not take the bait, or should you walk out? How do you handle a rude interviewer, and is it worth it to stay or time to leave?
At times, the best career move is to move on from your current job. When quitting is the next step on your career ladder, there’s a professional way to handle that situation—a resignation letter.
However, there’s more to it than just writing “I quit” on a sticky note and leaving it on your boss’s desk. In fact, how you quit a job can have as much impact on your career than how you interviewed for the position.
