Should you accept a lower-level job when returning to workforce after an extended break?

Coming back to the workforce after an extended break isn’t without its challenges. In fact, we wrote a blog with our tips to make the process a little less daunting. Some of our top suggestions included updating your LinkedIn profile, brushing up on your professional skills, joining networking groups/leadership conferences, and working with a staffing agency such at SNI Companies. For the purpose of today’s blog though we are going to look at another common dilemma: when re-entering the workforce should you accept a lower level position?

How Tech is Impacting HR

Advances in technology are helping to transform the process of many business functions, including Human Resources. Some would argue that HR is the backbone of any company, yet it could use a serious revamp. With the increased use in social media and automation, the recruiting process has completely shifted from where it was even five years ago. Overall, technology has improved the approach of gathering candidates, enhanced the method in which data is broken down for the hiring managers, and streamlined the way employee performance is measured.

Questions to ask if you’re considering switching career fields

A lot of us have been there. Working our current job and wondering what it would be like to work in a completely different field. Perhaps it’s a career you’ve always dreamed about but you felt obligated to go into the field you currently are in, or it’s simply something you “fell into”. Regardless, there is this small voice in your head (and on somedays perhaps it’s shouting) for you to change course. In today’s blog we look at the questions to ask yourself if you are considering changing career fields and what steps you can take to start moving in that direction.

Does asking for help come across as a negative at work?

Does asking for help come across as a negative at work?

Asking your manager or others for help at work may seem like a decision that could make you look less competent, but like most things in life, it comes down to balance. While you don’t want to be constantly asking for help, you also don’t want to struggle to meet deadlines or waste valuable time trying to figure something more advanced/complex out that your manager already has the answer to. In today’s blog we look at the right approach to asking for help at work - not only when you should but also how to go about it. We also look at the importance of setting proper expectations right off the bat so you and your boss are on the same page about what your job entails and what skills you are bringing and what you will need development with.
