I want to put in my notice in at my current position of 1 1/2 years.
April 4,2022 at 5:27AM UTC
I am a middle aged woman and work with "Leaders" in Education and I'm twice their age. I feel they are not accepting or understanding me as an individual due to the huge age gap. The kids I work with I get along great with and kept retention at my site. My original main coordinator upon hire did not take a liking in me or another educator from the beginning. We have since got a new coordinator and she recently sent HR a positive review about me and how I'm a huge blessing to the company and the kids and a great team player (not sure if she suspects I'm getting harassed or going to quit?) however the extended leadership who I rarely see that's at another location I have got zero respect from. (my guess is due to past gossip) Most seem to bad mouthed me and I have not been given a chance to say my side of the story or been confronted about anything but its easy to tell gossip is running rampant. I had my 10yr. old come to work with me who has been gossiped about as well so I pulled her from the program and coworkers have non stop been in my personal life and business. I am getting attitude from my past coworkers that I'm not being professional, yet they are the ones asking invasive personal questions and putting me in a predicament to answer every time I show up to work. I also had one of the employees (who is in a different department but has her kid coming to the program) husband come in and just sit around asking questions about my daughters where abouts and how she is doing which is making me extremely uncomfortable. It is overboard at this point with coworkers not respecting my personal boundaries and due to the positive feedback from my current coordinator I am so confused on their intentions. To me it sounds like the other woman in another department is being the mole and trying to get information. She is also not liked by most of her tenants as she goes hard on trying to get them kicked out of the complex when she feels they are a detriment and has also told me she has gotten several coworkers fired. It all has me on edge. I confronted 3 of my coworkers regarding the gossip about my kid which they denied, but even with her out of the program they have been relentless on collecting information about me. I am putting my notice in tomorrow. My question is , is it ok to say I'm leaving for personal reasons and not explain? And if any outsider reads this can you give me any insight. I would greatly appreciate the feedback.

I spent five years building a company to not only significantly grow its revenue but outrank its competition in numerous ways.
the owner decided to retire and sell the business. New owner doesn’t want to know about Marketing, never had it, doesn’t need it. Feels I’m an underpeeformer because of 1 faulty reports she was given and does not want the truth. Even though previous owner says Marketing is the cause of the businesses success. The purchasing company claims part of its decision was our great marketing.
once she had me stop doing my job, over the next six months revenue significantly declines.
six months of making my life hell later, I’m laid off.
seven months later, they repost my position at a lower level and salary. Turns out they have had 0 new clients and little revenue - they have not gotten out of the red.
why would you rehire for a role you eliminated?

Agency recruiters - Recruiter Lite on LinkedIn
Hi - Has anyone used Recruiter Lite as a tool for recruiting firms?
I am reviewing their platform as a tool and was wondering if anyone had any success. I am looking to utilize it to target recruiting managers/HR managers to market my services. I place senior level financial professionals (accounting and tax).
Any insights would be appreciated.

Has anyone filed a complaint with CHRO( Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities).
I am being unfairly accused of saying things I did not say to a coworker. My lawyer said he could contact CHRO. What does contacting CHRO entail? Did contacting CHRO help? Thank you!

Resume question for you, please!
I got a job 2 years ago at a manufacturing start-up, and 6 months in, got promoted to Fulfillment Lead. I did that position from April '22 to Sept '23, before they "restructured" management, and essentially booted me from my position and moved me to Customer Service. It was a move that I did not want, at all, but worked it until they ultimately let me go this past Jan. (While I understand why they made the move, I still hated it). Customer Service is nothing I want to look into in my new job/career, and not something I want to promote on my resume (my job of 14 years before this one was very C/S heavy, and I don't enjoy it and I'm just over it.). So, can I leave it off my resume entirely? Is that essentially "lying"? Or no, because I didn't work it for that long, and my old employer can only say I worked there, not what I did? Thoughts? Thanks!

JUST GOT A PIP buuuut….
I recently accepted a new postion. Fully remote vs the 5 days in office of my current position AND better salary. My PIP was full of anal, petty notes about my work and I accepted it with a smile.

Struggling with new team member not being the right fit and having a bad attitude towards feedback
My team needed additional support in the form of an assistant to help with administrative tasks that were overflowing on our plates. Some of these tasks include submitting expense reports for the team, onboarding our independent contractors, editing presentations, and other ad hoc administrative tasks. Pretty standard executive/administrative assistant tasks. We were clear about this in the JD.
I didn’t hire her personally but our shared manager did. It’s been a few months since she’s started and it’s not going well. Our team gets along very well and when we’re on our calls, she’s always just staring at us with a stone cold face not saying a word. We make an effort to include her and she just stares at us. She’s made a lot of mistakes and continuously forgets the same tasks over and over again despite having a manual of those tasks to reference for all the steps involved. She lies to cover up making those mistakes pretty often and it’s obvious because the story will change frequently. She also has a very negative reaction to even the most minor feedback. I suggested realigning a bullet point on a presentation so it better fit alongside the image and she wrote me a paragraph about her work clearly not being up to my standards and that my suggestion completely disregards all of the hard work on the presentation. It was one suggested edit on one slide out of 20 slides. She does this a lot to me and my team members where if we ask her to correct something or provide constructive feedback in conjunction with positive feedback, she lashes out and only hears the one piece of feedback over all the positive things. She’s made it pretty clear she has no interest in feedback on improvement and just wants only praise all the time. I have a very collaborative team that fosters professional growth. I’m constantly looking for areas of improvement for myself and demonstrate that in front of her by taking accountability for my own mistakes and areas of opportunity I have for growth. Her negativity is really bringing down the team and she’s unpleasant to work with on top of not meeting expectations.
Our company makes it difficult to terminate team members unless they do something severe like violate confidentiality rules in the handbook. I have had several conversations with my manager about these issues and he has agreed with me and we’re all kind of at a loss on how to manage her.
Does anyone have advice on how to manage someone who reacts very strongly and negatively to any kind of necessary feedback and learned any techniques that seemed to work?
