Are you at the point where you feel like you’ve tried all that you knew to do to at work? Or are you suffering from Sick Building Syndrome (SBS)? Do you instantly feel sick of the thought of going to work or when you get to the building? If you’ve answered yes to any of the above maybe it’s time to have an exit strategy. No one can define for you what your level of a toxic work environment is or how much you can handle before you’re ready to take your talents else were.
What would you do if your team was consistently changing and it wasn’t due to promotions? I’ve personally experienced this where it seemed like someone was always leaving. It was were receiving an email notification about a team meeting you knew more than likely it was an announcement of someone leaving the team. Being in this type of environment creates a lot of concern within the team and begins to play on employee morale when close colleagues are leaving left and right.
The key to making sure you’re submitting the right resume is understanding the job posting. If you’re looking to customize your resume you will want to look at the job requirements. This is not to say you shouldn’t read the entire description to determine if this would be a job you’re interested in, but a note to pay extra attention to the job requirements. Before you submit a resume to a job opening make sure you’ve read the job requirements and can say with confidence your resume meets them.
First impressions are everything so the reality is that sometimes you can’t recover from a bad interview. However, it all depends on the hiring manager and the position. Some Hiring Managers are very understanding when it comes to interviewers being nervous and maybe not presenting well. There’s also some positions where the business may need to move fast and may have several interviews scheduled so you may not have a chance to redeem yourself. Then there’s some positions where maybe there isn’t a large pool of candidates and you will have a chance to redeem yourself for that opportunity or future opportunities.
