Getting Employed Remotely by an unconditional GodBoss
September 13,2021 at 5:59AM UTC
I have been working for close to seventeen years in so many different industries that i could easily stand in for allot of different positions for the perfect boss in any situation they might need me in.
Over the past six-seven years finding stable remote work has been disasterous (I've done the videos, the materials, the work from home scams, the hustling, working for free, not being paid, free advertising, rebranding, restrategising, studing doing courses, fighting with AI regarding the broken coding system - you name it) yet these days so many different backgrounds just seem to get it right and they should - we all deserve time spent our way and to be out of an office political environment should it not be our niche.
I do the mantras, i do the affirmations, i do the prayers, i ask others would they want to work from home and what would they do, i act out in my head how i could reach my potential future employer in creative AI ways to the fact that i feel i am losing my mind and whish others the same for a fair advantage - although being consciously enlightened and aware that all people are different, doing this does not seem that far fetched to me, so why is it (no pun intended) not working?
I know i am worthy, i know i have allot to offer and allot of skill, savviness and friendliness beyond work to offer the person that truly sees beyond the financial initial loss and then mayor gain - so why are they playing games behind the scenes? I have so much more to live for and goals to reach and need dedicated time out from endlessly being bombed out by stupid AI software and a bosses mind that is lost between her children and spouse. I do not want to end up on the streets and i definitely do not need anti depressive medication for my frustrations - wanting work and knowing in the new age i deserve not needing to be behind a camera making how to videos or giving english lessons to a once off buyer who is playing the field - i need investments and investors even if we end up leaving this planet earlier than anticipated for the next journey ahead.
I've just come out of a divorce and in all honesty will not be pushed to the brinks of being homeless so i am trying to keep my head held high and focused on getting myself back while truly knowing that i have a love of electronics and world within and beyond.
It's just that time is running out, i am getting older, my grey hairs are making me feel more like a wisdom dropout then a concourer of happiness and it has all got to do with landing a full time remote working position.
No more time or finances to pay for extra studies, i only search positions in which i will be a leader and manager at the end of the day, South Africa's economy is 3x lower than UK and US and i do not have the means or education for full employment and acceptance elsewhere so i am what i am and i have what i have, when you are so frustrated that you know you need to cry and you know you deserve to get the tears out but they just wont flow, i cannot help but think who is laughing at the other end of the scale and to be accepted graciously and unconditionally either way - my time is running out - without me running - need to get running shoes and my white clothes - any advise?

So, I work for three very controlling and erratic bosses.
Everyone is always on guard for what will happen to me next, very chaotic. I have an opportunity to potentially switch departments but I know if I go down this road, they will sabotage me. My friend who is trying to steal me wants me to give a presentation for her department so that her boss can see my skills before I apply. Problem is, how do I tell my manager or do I just do it and beg forgiveness. She will be angry when she finds out but if I ask she’ll likely say no..

My company just offered a voluntary transition program for individuals in my group(over 1,000 people) an option to voluntarily separate with a lucrative payout if you started with the firm/group prior to January 1, 2022.
I know many people who started in December 2021 so they qualify by a few weeks and I started mid January so I don’t qualify by a few weeks. How is this legal ? They should have offered this voluntary package to all of us, right ?

I have a wonderful coworker (Supervisor) that I have worked with for 2 years.
She is a hard worker, never calls in and always goes above and beyond to get the job done. She has amazing performance reviews and has never had an issue with management or other employees.
Our company requires a background check before an employee can start. Apparently our old General Manager did not process her background check and just allowed her to start. She had a run in with the law in 2011 and was convicted in 2018. Once she was allowed to work she assumed the company didn't care about the conviction. There was not a question asking "have you ever been convicted of a felony", so she did not falsify any information. She turned her paperwork in like she was supposed to.
Fast-forward to the current day.... the company realized that her background was never processed and she is now awaiting the results. Her fear is that the background check could cause her to lose her job.
Isn't it the companies responsibility to make sure all of the employees background checks are processed? Should the burden fall back on the employee? ANY advice for her would be helpful.

I would like to rebuild my work confidence and resume my professional experience, but struggle with imposter syndrome and doubts about my abilities and expertise.
I am in my mid-late 20s and I get constant anxiety attacks and panic regarding my career, I recently lived and worked abroad (The UK), but returned back home due to mental health reasons (mainly work related). I have never experienced this and I would like to get back on track and resume my career building as I have always been a great employee and professional and I enjoy working. I would like to return to the UK (I am an EU national and have rights to reside and work there as I have permanent settled status), but I experience constant doubts regarding my skills, expertise and I was wondering if anyone had any advice, or has been in a similar situation, where they doubt their abilities and have a hard time finding how to retrieve their work confidence and believe in their value as a professional again.

I used a word in the wrong context in a meeting and the sentence didn’t make sense .
I’m literally embarrassed wondering what others are thinking about me after this meeting, especially my bosses . I was stumbling on words and didn’t make sense .
I have some health issues and experience severe Brain fog fr time to time . I can go from speaking eloquently to sounding like I never attended high school . They don’t know this of course and part of my job is driving project meetings so I’m concerned , but perhaps over analyzing
should I be worried or just move on and hope they forget lol ????
