Business This originally appeared on Quora. Answered by Tami Rosen. A mentor once told me that a quick way to know if you are in the right job is to count the number of good and bad days that you have at your current job. If the good days outweigh the bad days by a long shot, then you are probably in the right place. While I like that as a quick test, it does not get at the heart of the matter. Is this the right job for me now and in the future. I think it takes time, introspection and willingness to ask yourself difficult questions to know if you are in the right job. Some people fall into the job that they are in by chance and some people intend to do what we are doing. Either way, you may or may not be in the right job for you.

Two federal employees in Detroit, Michigan, call for an end to the government shutdown. Paul Sancya/AP Looking for news you can trust?Subscribe to our free newsletters. The partial government shutdown has now entered its third week and on Friday, an estimated 800,000 federal workers and contractors will not be receiving their paychecks. The shutdown, which began Dec. 22, has affected nine agencies, including services at national parks, immigration courts and the IRS. Many workers have been furloughed or are working without pay, and thousands have begun applying for unemployment benefits. While President Trump and the Democrats remain at an impasse over border wall funding, the shutdown has left many federal workers unsure of how they will pay their rent and bills. Government agencies have gone so far as to recommend that workers barter with their landlord and hold garage sales. On Thursday, thousands of federal workers held a protest at the White House … [Read more...] about Not Getting Paid Because of the Government Shutdown?

A 28-year-old CEO's job posting for a personal assistant has gone viral because of his insane demands. (iStock) Behold, the most self-indulgent job listing of all time. A 28-year-old CEO posted the ad on job search site Seek, detailing a part-time personal assistant position at his company — and it has gone viral. The listing details the many personal and professional criteria of the job, including never being able to clock off, extensive duties ranging from content creation to cleaning and property management, and “a desire to lead from behind”. “This will be the most challenging and the most rewarding position you’ve ever had,” the ad begins. It goes on to describe the position as an “opportunity to look inside the mind of a successful, fast-paced, intense, sometimes chaotic, passionate, easygoing, adventurous 28-year-old entrepreneur”. “If you want to clock in and clock out of your job — this isn’t for you,” … [Read more...] about CEO’s ridiculous posting for part-time personal assistant goes viral: ‘If you want to clock in and clock out of your job — this isn’t for you’
Rebekah L. Sanders Arizona Republic Published 9:00 AM EDT Sep 22, 2018 A Phoenix-area dad with two young kids had to pay nearly $500 out of pocket to fix the air-conditioning one sweltering day this summer. His home-warranty company refused to assign a contractor to repair it quickly. Warranty firms typically charge homeowners modest monthly and per-service fees for the peace of mind that the company will cover fixing or replacing large appliances. The Arizona Republic showed that Landmark Home Warranty didn't live up to the promise in its contract to "expedite service" during "extreme temperatures." In fact, Landmark defined the extreme temperatures that prompt fast service in an impossible way — 24 hours of temperatures above 100 degrees. Phoenix is never that hot for that long, according to the National Weather Service. "Home warranties have so much fine print and so many ways they try to screw you out of providing … [Read more...] about What is a home warranty and how do you choose the best one for you?
