Intern Question

As an intern, is it okay if I ask a manager in another department to allow me to learn and give me a task to do?

The department where I work is limited and doesn’t offer much to learn, but I execute its tasks very well and they appreciated my work and discipline.

Question originally answered on Quora.com.

 The concept of ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ is subjective at best.

There are people who absolutely love their career and the work that they do. Some will even say that they would work for free if they had to … but they are grateful for the paycheck.

Not all of us are as fortunate as that. Some of us have to work in jobs that ‘puts food on the table’ and ‘pays the bills’ but does not provide job satisfaction.

Then again, there are likely many people that aren’t happy with their time away from work either. They are just not happy people.

  • What are some hacks I can do on LinkedIn to look better to other connections and recruiters?

    Not so sure about hacks, but here’s some sage advice.

    The question is rather challenging in that you’re asking how to appeal to two different groups. If your main purpose is to appeal to recruiters, in that you are currently in job searching mode, your promotional copy needs to target them. Your promotional copy needs to be crafted so it attracts recruiters, lets them know you are looking for work and what you have to offer.

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

    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.

  • What's the best way to deal with a coworker who steals credit for your work and ideas?

    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.

  • 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.
