A. The hiring process, by a mile. Runner-up: Performance Appraisal
Q. What is the most broken organizational process?
the system is set up to make you believe: 1) you are lucky if an employer stoops to hire you 2) tons of other people just as talented as you would kill to have your job 3) you can never stop proving yourself DON'T BELIEVE ANY OF THIS NONSENSE None of it is true.

You are not in competition with anyone. You will interview for jobs you wouldn’t take if they begged you to. You have no need to grovel. You are looking for one manager who resonates at your frequency, and you have no one to impress
You are smart and capable. People at your two last jobs tried to diminish you but they couldn’t do it. Little by little, you are recovering from that and coming back to full strength. These last two jobs were the aberration. The triumphant days before that are the REAL YOU
Like everyone, you need fuel for your journey. Recalling your triumphant stories will help refill your fuel tank. Spending time with people who lift you up will do the same thing. Little by little your power will come back. You’ll remember what you always knew:
As you relax into writing regularly, write about your past jobs & those times when you felt triumphant at work. Bring them back to mind. Write about who was there, what you were wearing and what it felt like to make a huge difference at work.
If one day’s journal entry is, No idea what to write, but I saw a turtle cross the road today, that’s fine.
Second thing, get a journal you really like and a pen you like to write with. Make it a little ceremony, choosing the journal and the pen. Start writing, even just a few words a day or every other day.
A. First thing, surround yourself with people who make you feel good. As much as you can, limit your time with people who make you feel bad about yourself.
I look at job ads and think, how can I compete with all these other people? My flame is low, as you would say. How do I build it back up?
Q. My problem is I have no confidence. My last two jobs knocked my confidence out of me. I remember being successful in my job and feeling great but that was eight or 10 years ago.
All the people who laughed off the “worrywarts” years ago for freaking out about the Funny Dancing Robot Dogs (tm) should be forced to watch this video once a day for the remainder of the year.

We want to do what we want to do and #COVID is glad about that. Third summer in a pandemic and people are over it. Making masks political, making vaccines political, has made variants possible to evade our immunity.

It’s time for employers to drop the superior attitude they too often bring into job interviews. It’s obnoxious, ineffective and drives talented candidates away.
It is the height of arrogance to assume you would, to be honest with you. If you don’t have a need that you cannot fill internally, there is no reason to post a job ad. If you post a job ad it means that YOU need help. The candidate does not necessarily need help.
First of all, there is no universal agreement that people have weaknesses, and even if they do, why would it be any of your business what those weaknesses are? By hiring someone you do not automatically become their life coach.
- OK, but you don’t even want me to ask them about their weaknesses? I’m their manager. I can coach them on their weaknesses. - That’s one of the worst questions to ask. It has no place in a job interview.
- It’s past time we re-examined the traditional interview questions. They want to leave their job for new opportunities or as you said, because of a toxic culture. What difference does it make?
- Yes. It’s also irrelevant to their ability to do the job. - And you don’t want me to ask them why they want to leave their job, because most people leave their jobs due to toxic leaders and cultures and I shouldn’t force them to share that either?
INTERVIEW QUESTIONS TO STOP ASKING? - So Liz, you don’t want me to ask candidates what they were doing during employment gaps? Because it might force them to disclose sensitive personal information?

I know that talking about race & acknowledging historical facts are now "controversial" & "divisive" topics. But I have to admit, that I was surprised at the reaction to when VP Harris. Maybe the VP is biased. She might be completely wrong, so I check the facts. A (live) thread

"Coalition for Workforce Innovation" sounds so nice, right? It's really just a front group for Big Tech & corporate interests that are hellbent on shredding decades worth of worker protections. There's NOTHING innovative about eliminating workers' basic rights #TruthAboutCWI…

When a company’s sales are low, they don’t convene a task force or hire a Director of Sales to serve in an advisory capacity. They act immediately and decisively to increase sales. But when a company’s leadership team lacks diversity, they launch a task force! #fakediversity
CEO's in the US made $18.3 million on average in 2021, 324X the pay of their median workers & up from 299X in 2020 Amazon's CEO Andy Jassy’s total pay was $213 million in 2021, 6,474X that of Amazon's median worker--the highest ratio of any major company…

A. It was a great experience, but it was time to go. It wasn’t the kind of job I could do while job hunting on the side, so I left to focus on my job search.
Q. What can I tell prospective employers about why I quit my job? I was being harassed. That is none of their business.
@JenniferHarr We have hospitalized patients turning COVID positive, presumably because of visitors taking off their masks, so we are locking down our visitor restrictions again, ICU is filling up, you all best take this surge seriously. It will not be kind.

If a CEO said, By this time next year, 20% of managers at every level in this company will be Black, let’s put together a strategy and do it, it would happen.
If something is important to a CEO, they do it. If it’s not important, HR finds a lame test that will drive away many if not most talented candidates (Black or otherwise) - and deploy it, because they can use the test scores as a reason for a manager to consider a Black candidate
without bailing? That is a classic tip-toeing, halfway move, trying to split the difference between real diversity hiring goals and managers who might not like it if you told them they simply need to hire more Black people (or members of any community).
Yes, we do, is the reply, and I know it’s an awful test but diversity candidates do better when we use this test than when we don’t. So you use a crappy test whose only value is to let more diverse candidates through – that is, of course, assuming they make it through the test
Example: someone sends me a preemployment personality test and says, will you take this quick test? I take it and I tell them, this thing is godawful. It’s so juvenile and insulting. Do you use this test in hiring?
