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

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.

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. Instead, by following a systematic approach you can gauge the compatibility of your salary against what you have to offer, and reach a well-reasoned conclusion.... Read More ...
