Returning to Employment After Your Startup Fails

Attempting to establish your own startup is a risky gamble that certainly demands much of your time and effort, and there are no guarantees that you will succeed.

A Guide to Pursuing a Career Outside the Focus of Your Degree

Our Middle Eastern culture has always been hung up on the notion of choosing a “safe” and “reputable” study major with little regard to one’s abilities and personal preferences. That’s why many job seekers consider their university degree as generally definitive of his/her respective career. So they end up living their whole lives doubting their career choices and dwelling over what they perceive to be missed opportunities.

Is Your Salary Fair?

Most workers nowadays are experiencing job dissatisfaction and turnover rates are reaching an all time peak. Such displeasure doesn’t necessarily stem from employees’ disinterest in their jobs, but rather might be linked to how fair they perceive their salary to be. Whether your salary isn’t enough to meet your demands or you feel like you deserve a pay increment, you certainly have every right to question that. You deserve to be aware of your market worth and to be paid according to it. However, randomly speculating over this matter will not lead you to a definite answer.
