Hopes, Wishes and Dreams Are Not Good Career Plans

Tired of being behind financially, not opening bills and avoiding phone calls?

That can all change fairly quickly.

You have heard this before? Did you take any Planned ACTION on it? If you did, stop reading now. You get it.

Here are some very simple ways to get out of the poverty and life-misery that go along with a lack of direction:

  1. Get a good job and make it a better job. A “Good Job” is not necessarily one that pays you the most on day one. A Good job will provide an opportunity for doing good work, learning, advancement and being recognized for it. Notice I said “doing good work”. Loafing, being below average, or just getting by enough to not get fired…these don’t qualify for “Good Work”.
  2. Show up…every day. The easiest way to drop back into poverty and personal misery is to get fired for being late, not showing up or loafing. Every time you get fired or walk off a job without having another job, you have to start all over again. Getting fired or not showing up for work is NOT an accomplishment. It won’t get you anywhere you want to go. It won’t make you more attractive.
  3. Bring a great attitude with you. Be ready for work. Go EARLY. Get your head in the game. It won’t cost you a dime. Your attitude will  determine how you are treated.
  4. Work and LEARN. EVERY employer today is looking for people who want to learn more and do more. EVERY. SINGLE. EMPLOYER. Be in the top 10% of your team. YOU WILL EARN RAISES (More $$$). A good way to get out of poverty. ASK FOR MORE.
  5. Don’t be a “RICHARD” (you get the nickname don’t you). Be a TEAM player, be someone easy to get along with. Don’t take sides or get involved in drama. Don’t argue with a boss (you will always lose this argument). Smile, and don’t try to come across as a thug. People in movies AREN’T REAL.
  6. Be stable. The easiest way to get hired on a new learning and earning curve is to have shown that you can stick to your word and a job. Don’t leave until you have a list of accomplishments. Don’t leave until you cannot learn anything new. Don’t leave unless you are positive you can get a great reference (yes, people will check).
  7. Solve problems, don’t be one. It is called a “Reputation”. Be the person people ask for, not avoid.
  8. Follow the rules until you are good enough to make the rules. 
  9. Put all the above INTO ACTION. That’s where ACTION beats hopes. Hopes and wishes are simple thoughts and use idle time. Prayers? That is up to you. Those are asking for help.

Break out of whatever rut you are in by taking a simple action.

Not sure how to do that?

Get Your Education, But Don't Forget This One Thing...

By Champion Personnel
June 04, 2019 Category: Candidates, Education

It seems that the government, school systems and employers (and media) are all stressing the need for more useful knowledge (learn a skill). Knowledge is good. But NEVER forget that being successful has more to do with your efforts and results than your book knowledge. Employers will hire a hard-working, enthusiastic person who wants to learn WAY before they will hire a person with theoretical knowledge who shows little or no desire/drive or Grit. And they will promote the hard charger years before the person with a piece of paper who shows no drive or motivation. Fact. No Bull. Motivation in action: the path to A Better Job. A Better Life.

Get Paid More. Get Promoted

It is actually easier today than 10 or 15 years ago. More people today miss more work, are late for work or put out just enough to get by. Employers are frustrated and are in urgent need of promotable people they can count on. Here are 4 things you can do to make more money, get promoted or get recognized as an outstanding employee. None of these will cost you a dime: Show up for work, every day, 5-10 minutes early. Be ready to work. This will absolutely be noticed by managers. Even if you are sick, show up and let your employer send you home. Calling off via phone or text leaves questions. Put out 100% of your best efforts. You are there. Might as well. Look for and ask for other things to do, if your job is stalled. You will get known as a doer, someone who can set a good example. Be attentive. Having a focus on your work will, again, get you noticed. People who get noticed for doing good things, acting like a good worker, get raises and more training, and promotions.

How to Tell the Right People Your Boss is a Jerk

By Champion Personnel
June 04, 2019 Category: Candidates

Tempting, isnt it? Satisfying? Could be. Do many deserve it? Yes. And no. Being a Boss or Manager is NOT easy. And most receive NO or very little training or coaching in how to be a good one. 75% of all quits today have something to do with leaving a Boss, not the company. So, when do you tell someone about a Bad Boss? After you leave? The day you leave? Weeks BEFORE you leave? Not at all? Here is what to do, if you are looking for a solution, or you want to be considered an exemplary employee (especially if you ARE going to leave, eventually, and want a good reference): 1) Make sure you are darn good at what you do, or getting there. Perhaps any negative comments from the Bad Boss have to do with your behavior or results. If your output or behavior is lacking, some of the sandpaper between you and your Bad Boss is he/she simply wearing thin about you. 2) Write down the actual incidents where the Boss is being Bad. What happened? What started it? How did it come across? Do you have
