Hi guys! Hope you enjoy today’s guest post from my friend, Trisha! Let us know what you think!
Finding your dream job isn’t easy. For many of us it’s not even a feasible option. However, two traits that are absolutely essential to your job searching success are patience and persistence. It’s so easy to become discouraged when searching for a new job, especially if you are in a bind. Yet, the sense of accomplishment and security you can feel when you land a great job is priceless.
What’s more, landing a new job (even if it is not your forever job) entails a great deal of dedication to your new employer. Basically, if you’re going to be spending 40 plus hours a week doing said job, you should be respected as an employee and be compensated according to your expertise regardless of gender, race, or religion.
The fact of the matter is, the pay gap is real. Statistics show that men are being paid significantly more than women. Raising awareness about this issue is the only sure-fire way to end such inequality, but in the meantime negotiating your salary is one way to even the playing field for all those involved in the employment game.
