Many of us wouldn’t want to stay stuck and be stagnant especially on our careers. Nobody would want to be just a regular employee all the time. Your company has a lot to offer. But why are still you there being boxed by your comfort zone?
Why don’t you make things happen --- like your PROMOTION?
Most of us spend 8 to 9 hours at work, some even have overtime work so when it comes to weekends and day-offs, most of us crave for rest (and probably sleep all day).
Ang attitude na“Bitin nanaman ang vacation” or “Monday nanaman negatively impacts our mind to start a week. So here are some tips on how to make your life at work productive.
When you start working the first thing that will change to you is your social life, the thing that you will surely miss when you enter the reality life of being a working person. Spend time with your friends or your family, chill out a little bit and relax, not exactly everyday but once in a week will do. As they say, people who are close to you will give you motivation but always be reminded that at the end of the day think about the steps that you will do for tomorrow.
It's not bad to chill out once in a while but remember your obligation for the next day. Set your schedule of the things that you will do for tomorrow, prioritize the tasks need to be complete so that you will know how to handle your time for today, how much time you can spend and also when some interruption occurs you will know the things need to be done when you come back in your workplace. Setting up your schedule will not only help you stay organized and focused but will also give you satisfaction once you complete your tasks.
Transform your “Monday na naman” to “Monday na ulit ”which is a positive attitude. When you start a week think of how your work gives in your life, how work allows you to have your life outside of it such as travel, a great social life, luxury. A positive attitude will make a day pleasant and more productive.
Pull out the negative people in your life and surround yourself with possibilities. Although some occurs in your work place, take it as a challenge and make it as a motivation for you to finish your task. If your friends are inviting you to drink but you have overload work it's not bad to refuse them once in a while and let them know that you are finishing a project but will definitely hangout with them as soon as you finish your work.
Let go of perfection. It is not bad to aim for perfection but sometimes we force our self to do things which resulted to be more worst that we expect. Don't force yourself doing what you don't love because most of the time, perfection occurs to those individual who loves and enjoy what they are doing to their work.

Here are some tips on how you can get your new job fast.
Send a THANK YOU note after your interview to the interviewer. It’s a way of appreciation for considering you for the job and it is also a way to show your interest about the job.
Never say bad things about your precious employer. The first thing interviewer wants to know is how you will say about their company when you’re moving on. Common mistakes that interviewees do are bad mouthing their former boss or co-workers which gives a bad impression to the interviewer.
Be YOURSELF. Be confident in an interview in ways you are answering the interviewer question right and appropriately. Looking into the interviewers eyes while answering will inform them that you are sincere of what you are saying.
Be on time. If you already have a set schedule for an interview, it is better for you to prepare before the said date and make sure you will be on time. Not too early and definitely not late, 15 mins before the said time of an interview will do because first impressions really do last.
Dress appropriately. If you've been qualified for an interview, it's better for you to dress professionally and appropriately because again - first impressions really do last.
Share your work experience. If you already have a job experience, it gives you an edge to immediately impress hiring managers but take note that you don’t need to include all of your job experience in your resume. Only include your experiences which are relevant for the job that you're applying to.
Make a resume which is impressive and realistic. Hiring managers are the ones who screens and analyzes your resume if you qualify for the job or not. You only have a few seconds to impress a hiring manager with your resume. Make a good impression with your resume to bring you a step closer to getting that job.
Don’t settle for one company. When you are searching for work, don’t just send an application to one company. While you are waiting to hear back from an employer, apply to other companies as well. Mostly Jobseekers or new graduate students face rejections from different employers before they land on their first job. Everyone has faced rejection with job applications . One rejection or another shouldn't stop you.
Focus on the job that you qualify for and that you will love doing. Applying for every job you see online is not a good idea since it's not only a waste of your time, it may also create doubt in your own abilities.
Applying for a job that you qualify for will immediately give you a chance to get selected for an interview. Take time to think and decide what Job you really want or qualify for before doing your job hunting.
Advance technology can help you find a job quickly. Take advantage of it! Don't just rely on printed job ads. Use the Internet and online job portals like PhilJobNet or other online Job sites. Search the job keywords, title or company that you are interested in. Job hunting requires patience. After a while, you'll be surprised to see that you already have job offers waiting for you.
