Pros and Cons of Working in a Family Business

There is an endless array of possibilities that you can consider when seeking a job or attempting to gain employment. In many cases, family members have mutual interests and target similar work fields. This can prompt the creation of family-run businesses, which call for ongoing commitment and involvement on behalf of family members. For that reason, many people in a similar situation are propelled to look into the non-conventional path of working in a business owned or run by a family member, and are sometimes coerced to partake in it. Working in a family business is a delicate matter that can be convenient in many regards, but one that will inevitably turn against you if you don’t manage it properly.... Read More ...

Tips on How to Survive and Make the Best out of your Probation Period

The process of adapting to a new work environment and job position can be quite challenging. Meeting your new coworkers and your boss, getting yourself acquainted with the responsibilities that are expected of you, and building a positive emotional connection with the new role can be a lot to take in all at once.

To top it off, your position is not guaranteed for the first three months or so, as you go through what is typically termed as a “probation period”. While the probationary period allows the employer to terminate you if you’re not doing well at your job, it also gives you the opportunity to assess the workplace and the job that you’ve been given, and can choose to leave if it doesn’t fit what you’re looking for....

Intrapreneurship: Be an Entrepreneur with a Secure Job

The notion of being an entrepreneur is often romanticized and depicted as an extremely lucrative alternative for job seekers trying to make it in the workforce. Yet, many shun away from such a path because they dread facing any unfortunate outcomes that may emerge from it, or because they deem it to be unpromising in their case. Such reasons are completely understandable, and they constitute reasonable grounds for shying away from such a decision.

However, your choice not to take pivotal risks on the large scale doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to abide by a strictly conventional work style. Most people mistakenly perceive work styles as a very nuanced matter, while in reality, they can be extremely flexible.... Read More ...

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 offers no guarantees for success.

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 their respective careers. So they end up living their whole lives doubting their career choices and dwelling over what they perceive to be missed opportunities.

The good news is that you can conform to the general realm of your degree and still be able to tweak your career path according to your passion. Nonetheless, the idea of taking risks beyond that, and pursuing a career that is unrelated to your degree is not endorsed by many, and is generally perceived as an ill-advised choice....

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.
