How to Get More Out of an Underwhelming Job

If you’re anything like me, you like to be busy at work. I don’t like going to work and feeling like my knowledge or skill set isn’t being utilized.  I had a job where I would clock in at 7am and be done with my work for the day by 9:30am. I would have absolutely nothing to do for the rest of the work day. I mean literally, I was doing everything from catching up on TV Shows, finding new TV Shows and/or Movies to watch, listening to Podcast, watching YouTube videos to surfing the internet. I wanted to fill…

How To Leave a Job on Good Terms

In my professional career, I have quit two jobs. In quitting both of those jobs, I have learned a few things about what to do to leave the job on good terms, especially if later on this is a company you are considering returning to. Give a two weeks notice. First and foremost, I want to say that giving a two weeks notice is not a requirement, but a courtesy.  My two jobs that I have quit, I gave them a one week notice, but that is because I had no other choice, otherwise I would have definitely given a…

So, What Does A Talent Acquisition Coordinator *Actually* Do?

What are the duties of a TA Coordinator? The duties of a TA Coordinator are, in my opinion, similarly to an Administrative Assistant. We partner with Recruiters at the company, and about 85-90% of what we do is schedule interviews for external and internal candidates (calendar management), handle logistics of interviews, booking conference rooms, creating interview agendas, making sure candidates are on the security check-in list, ordering food if necessary, handling the background and drug test activity for candidates and over being the face of the company, as we are the people that a candidate is interacting with up to…

Job Hopping

Indeed, LinkedIn and Glassdoor are probably the top three sites I stroll through the most.  More than Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  I wake up and religiously look at any new jobs that are currently available in the Greater Nashville Area.  I have no idea why I do this but I do.  Even when I’ve only been at a job for a week.  While in LA, I probably applied to over 100 or so jobs.  I liked both of my jobs, but I think I kept searching and searching because I was in contract roles and I wanted a full-time job…

That One Time I Worked at Amazon for a Day

Since moving to California, I’ve had 4 jobs so far.  My most recent one was working at Amazon.  I applied to the job because I was originally looking for PT, overnight, 9p-1:45a or 11p-3:45a to bring in a little extra cash.  I was working my second job in LA as a Recruiter and I realized how much I hated working there.  During my time at that job, I ended up interviewing for a new job that was near my house and getting it(although I didn’t get it until after I quit this job as a Recruiter), but I wouldn’t be…
