Unless you’re among those privileged enough to not have to work, or if you have won the lottery and have invested your money wisely, you either have a job already or will need to get one in the future. Though you would most likely want to have a career over a job. Or, if you’re really fortunate, you have found or will find your calling in life. (Preferably one that has a positive correlation with money.)
Regardless of which of the three you have or will have, they all have aspects or elements that can be irksome. Ideally, these are balanced out or outweighed by the positives to your line of work.
Like it or hate it, your work has or will provide you with various experiences in the course of your time performing it. Take this opportunity to discuss the pros and cons of your work, your likes and dislikes about it, certain experiences you’ve had while working, etc. Or, if you have yet to start working, feel free to ask for advice about finding a job, interacting with co-workers and bosses, or questions and concerns in general about joining the work force.
Conversations do not necessarily need to follow one, solid topic; anyone can bring up a new event relating to his/her experiences with his/her work at any time.
1. Keep the discussions related to your work or the work of other members.
- A moderator may give a public warning if he/she finds that the discussion has become off-topic per the thread rules. This is a sign that the current discussion needs to be stopped. Ignoring this can lead to warnings/infractions.
2. You’re free to put your own name up on this website, which is your choice concerning your own privacy. However, take a moment to decide whether it’s the best idea to include the names of your co-workers, bosses, or your workplace.
3. Sometimes it helps to vent. Feel free to express your emotions/feelings, but please keep it at a level that won’t make your fellow members uncomfortable.
4. Debating with someone about their views and stances on work is okay, but do not attack the person directly. We are all unique individuals. As such, no one person will have the exact same experiences as another. Please keep this in mind and be respectful of your fellow members when posting here.
5. When asking for advice, remember that the advice given is not a full guarantee. Again, we are all unique individuals. What works for one may not work for another. Use your best judgment when considering the advice that has been provided.
