Lately, there has been a few threads made in regard to employment opportunities and/or being nervous for an interview. I, personally, have always dreaded going into interviews because I feel like I mess up a lot trying to get it just right, but I have learned a couple techniques that I hope will give you the motivation and the courage to go into your next interview.
As you all know, (and are probably bored of hearing about it) I got fired from my real life job that I endured for almost three years. If you haven’t read the article that I wrote pretty much during my suspension period before I got fired, click here to do so. This article is basically me telling myself that I’m over it. Over the frustration and sadness that I felt during that time and for months after it.
‘You’re Fired’. Despite hating where I worked and also joking about getting fired, hearing those two words (well, sort of those two words but worded differently) actually
pretty much broke me.
Sadly, this article isn’t about The Apprentice but instead, about me getting fired.
Kids dread it, parents hate it and teachers just accommodate it. Once a year – one very long evening for all, it can become quite stressful for many. Whether you’re old or young, I’m sure you can remember back to your school days when you had to attend parents’ evening; the time of year where teachers would express their opinions on your attitude and overall performance. Some enjoy the tasty treat which comes afterwards whereas others dread the extra forceful revision lessons from their parents.
Almost everyone (no matter what job you’re in) will probably have to deal with a customer at some point. All of us would have had a bad experience with a customer and, almost certainly, heard the 5 most annoying words on the planet; “The customer is always right”.
I put it to you that the customer isn’t always right. What if I were to say that every now and again the customer isn’t right. What if I said that sometimes the customer is just a royal pain in the neck.
