Ms. Career Girl

You might say you’ll never work for a temp agency or accept a job that pays by the hour rather than offering you a salary – but you might be wrong. Like a lot of Generation Y women out there, I can be something of a “crazy” workaholic.

giving thanks for a holiday bonus when you hate your job

Ask A Manager

Before I got this job, I was a (begrudging) temp for over five years, and this is my first job that I’ve ever received a bonus of any kind, let alone a holiday bonus. I was also expected to clean out my boss’ office when he decided to rent his space to a new tenant, sell items for the other boss on Craigslist with people I had never communicated with, and pay cash to tip movers out of my own pocket. This letter isn’t really about a bonus at all.

do I have to be perfect to get a job?

Ask A Manager

I had to move to another area of the country to get a part-time job, and that was an office temp job (my degree is a DVM so it was considerably below my education). I’d also keep an eye on Craigslist if you’re interested in restaurant work (sorry if you already are).
