6 Job Interview Red Flags for Candidates

6-job-interview-red-flags

Don’t ignore job interview red flags. If something isn’t sitting right with you, go with your gut and explore your reasons for feeling off. Job interviews are a two-way street. You should be learning as much about the employer as they are you.

Everyone has an off day.  If a hiring manager says or does something that seems a bit off, it might not necessarily be a deal breaker. However, if several suspicious situations arise, think long and hard about how badly you want this job. Chances are, you won’t be happy in  a place that doesn’t make a positive impression from the very beginning.

6 Tips for an Organized Home Office When You Work in a Tiny Space

organized-home-office

Keeping an organized home office is important for productivity.  I don’t like having a lot of “stuff” or furniture that takes up space and clutters my room. I also don’t believe in having a variety of items lying around “just in case.” My tips for an organized home office may seem a tad unconventional, but in my case less equals more.

My “home office” is actually a corner of my dining room. It’s a room we use for “company” but don’t use often enough that I have to pack up and leave every time I finish up work for the day.

How and When to Say “No” to Clients

how-and-when-to-say-no

As a freelancer, I’ve  been asked to do many things. I’ve collected data and created spreadsheets, researched pallet rack manufacturers, written about poison ivy, and marketed promotional playing cards. Some of the jobs I did weren’t exciting, but they paid the bills, but I treated every client the same – as if each and every one was my most important client and priority.

Over the years I’ve learned that freelancing isn’t glamorous or exciting. The majority of my clients are smaller names, but I’ll never complain about good people (to work with) or steady work. I’ve also learned that there are times when I have to tell a client or potential client “no.” While it always pains me to turn down work (and money), I think it’s more professional to set boundaries or not bite off more than I can chew, than it is to take on more work.
