The 5 Signs it's time to Quit your Job

Signs you should quit

Should I stay or Should I go?

Have you ever had that Monday feeling? Your alarm goes off and you hit snooze for the tenth time in a row, you pull the duvet over your head and you start wishing you didn't ever have to go to work again. We have all been there, some of us have even considered pulling a "sickie" so we can stay in our pj's and watch Homes under the Hammer all morning instead of having to face the responsibilities of work.

We all have had the Del boy Trotter moment, saying we will be millionaires this time next year and we can run into work with our resignation. I bet you have even day dreamed about telling your boss where they can stick their job.

That's normal right?

Cover Letter - What should you include?

Cover Letter - What should you include?

Dear Sir/Madam, I'd like a job! Regards, Your New Employee

Hopefully you had chance to check out my last post Is the Cover Letter Dead? and if you did then this post might be slightly confusing! As I ended by saying the traditional cover letter wasn't needed and now I am saying what should you include in it? Don't panic I haven't back tracked, this is going to be all about what to include in your introduction when sending off your CV to an employer.

Is the Cover Letter Dead?

Don't judge a book by its cover, but should you judge an applicant by their cover letter?

The world of recruitment is constantly changing and the application "norms" are a thing of the past. With applications filtering through Snapchat or Instagram, interviews conducted on Facetime or SKYPE or even the traditional interview questions being torn up and thrown away for more creative and invention methods it's hard to know what to expect.

In 2018 will the cover letter really be needed?

5 New Year Resolutions to make in 2018

5 New Year Resolutions

Happy New Year! What's the plan for 2018?

Have you settled on any resolutions yet for this year? Or have you just got out the same resolutions as last year and the year before with the hopes that you will eventually achieve them. How many years have you said you will drop those pounds only to stop going to the gym in February and continued to pay month in month out for that membership. Didn't you say last January you would go for that promotion or find a new job to be only sat at the same desk moaning about not enjoying your job but doing very little to make a change.
