I'm 30 and just got diagnosed as Autstic
My employment history is all over the map but I love helping people (low volume, low stress). Current job is in tech with about 20 people and only 3 other women: I need to change fields but don't know how, given my accommodation needs. Usually I suffer in silence for 1-2 years and quit. Not sure what the diagnosis changes. Help!
I am highly skilled with a background in marketing management (MBA in Finace and Marketing), process improvement (Six Sigma), project management and research. I have been ranked number 3 in quality performance and recognized by a CEO for my innovativeness. I have taken serval (3) years off from the corporate environment to take care a relative that has significant chronic medical issues. I am ready to go back to work, but I have contraint. I want to be available - so I do not want to travel more than 20%. I do not want to work extreme hours - I want a balanced life. I am trying to relocate to the Raleigh/Durham area in North Carolina, so that I can oversee my relative's care, but I realize that this may not be possible. Watching this health crisis unfold has taught me that I do not need to make 6 figures. I want work that makes a difference and pays well. I am not a spring chicken (59 years olds). I documents that show the quality of my work. Where do I find a company that will provide the mental stimulation and flexibility. I like to think, solve hard problem and significantly change companies in positive way. I like the think tank environment. How do I search for and find a good fit?
Any advice for someone searching for work during their first trimester of pregnancy? I currently work with a temp agency for income and am applying for my next role. From what I've read on the boards, it seems that most women are firmly established at their companies but I was forced to look for a new role outside of my former company due to a health condition. They were unwilling to move me to a different role within the company. Any suggestions on how to navigate the next 4-6 months before giving birth?
I worked for a company that does transportation on demand and is constantly in the news concerning their treatment of customers and employees. I left the company at the end of my first year, despite loving the work I was doing, because I found company culture to be so toxic. I was lucky, in that the first job I got after leaving didn't ask me about my experiences there or what caused me to leave. Now, however, every interview I have asks why I left and starts asking questions about the company culture. Some of the questions have been way too personal. and I don't want to spend my entire interview deflecting questions or being asked to trash talk, my former employer. Any ideas about what I can say when I'm asked why I left and how to steer the conversation back to the interview?
Hello, I have worked for 6.8 years in Financial sector ( Stock Exchange and a Bank). I had to quit my job in bank and relocate to another country because of my marriage. It's been two years now that I am unable to find a job in this country in banking or finance. Honestly, there is a part of me who does not want to get into numbers anymore. Throughout my career, customer service was my strength. I love talking to people, solving their problems, it makes me happy. Now I am stuck at home. I need to be financially independent but at the same time I need to find the right career for me. Kindly guide what all career opportunities I can explore after banking with a post graduation diploma in Banking. And how can I get into Hospitality Industry? Thanks.
