  • The first day at a new job can be tough. It’s usually filled with stress and insecurity, although it often turns out to be rather boring and even impractical. Not only is it a waste of the first day’s great potential but it’s also a threat to the new hire’s future at the company.

  • There are many benefits to be reaped from online shopping. One of the biggest ones is that it’s incredibly convenient and saves you a lot of time which would be otherwise spent travelling to and from the store, or standing in queues to the checkout. Online shops also tend to present their potential customers with attractive discounts and other special deals to encourage switching to online shopping.

  • Being able to communicate in a clear and effective manner is considered as one of the so-called soft skills. As such, it is often neglected, as the employees tend to believe having hard, technical skills will bring them more benefits, whereas many managers don’t pay much attention to one’s communication abilities while recruiting.

  • Once a year comes a specific time that is all about giving. No, we do not mean Christmas and giving gifts, but rather giving yourself and others annual feedback.

  • It seems that internship programs are becoming more and more popular among companies today. Not only is it an amazing opportunity to discover true gems and turn them into future company superstars, it also gives post-graduates and students a chance to gain some real work experience. Can you imagine a better way to become a qualified specialist in a position that you did not even know existed a couple years back? This isn't something standard education can offer you!

  • The development of our civilization led us to adopting a sedentary lifestyle, which puts a huge strain on our movement system and, in a sense, actively shortens our lives. Many have sounded the alarm, for "sitting is the new smoking," and rightfully so. Objectively speaking, there is a certain truth to that statement.

  • While to-do lists might be helpful sometimes, they are also a trap. Imagine you have 5 tasks to complete today. There are three possible outcomes here. First, you might finish 3 tasks in 4 hours and then tell yourself: "I’ve got plenty of time for the last two, so I will take it easy. No need to rush.” We’re talking serious time wasting here. Second, you might just end up putting too many tasks on the list and then

  • Work atmosphere and personal development are some of the most important values for us – the new generation of employees. We are more confident and egotistical (in a positive way, of course). Nowadays we ask ourselves, what did my employer give me? How can I develop myself in my workplace?

  • Online payments used to scare me senseless back in the day, because I never knew how they would go about. How do I do it? How does it work? What if something goes wrong, what will happen then? Mostly I was just scared because I wasn’t very tech savvy, nor was I good at asking for help, but that’s a thing of the past! Now I am much more knowledgeable in the online payments area and ready to share my insights and knowledge.

Although many people talk about a work-life balance, I think I will take Harvard Business Review’s legitimate take on this... ...it’s about making sure your work fits into your lifestyle.
