How do you hide the fact that you lost your job on LinkedIn?

 

I don’t think you need to hide the fact that you lost your job, in your LinkedIn profile.

Conversely, I don’t believe you need to draw attention to the fact either.

I suppose it depends on whether it affects you in any way. If it does, then actions may be warranted. If it doesn’t affect you directly, perhaps affecting a fellow team member, you’ll need to decide whether it’s any of your business to intervene on the other’s behalf. It may be more appropriate to support your fellow team member if they want to move forward in addressing the issue, rather than taking it on yourself.

Work Ethics

Written by

Question: Is it correct work ethics for your manager to come beside you at work and start yelling “quick, faster, no time, hurry, ran and stop it let me do it go do something else or if you have nothing to do go away or outside”?

I don’t think ethics come into play in the situation you are describing.

At a Christmas work function, I was talking to a man who has previously worked with my boss. He made a comment about high staff turnover and my boss churning through staff. How do I approach this now?

Just file it away for future reference.

How is it relevant?

  • No-Show Phone Interview

    Phone call womanI scheduled a phone interview for 2:30 p.m. mountain standard Time and when I went back to my email to reconfirm whereas it was 10 minutes later than 2:30 already it reads please allow for a call within 30 minutes of the scheduled time. That seems strange to me.. and now we approach the last 5 minutes of that 30-minute window and still no hide no hair no phone call. Do I reach out to them after the 30 minutes is up or do I assume that I should move on and keep looking elsewhere?

    As I am responding to this question 16 days after you have posted it, I would expect you have resolved it by now. So, my response is directed at anybody else facing a similar situation.

  • Should you still apply for a job if you don’t have enough experience?

    My friend told me "within reason" but what's your interpretation of that? More than half? One or two years short? I have 2.5 years of experience for a job that requires 5. Still worth applying for?

    I’ve heard 70 to 75% bandied about as a reasonable expectation to be considered as a possible applicant for a job position.

    You are guaranteed not to get 100% of the jobs you don’t apply for.
