"The most important thing I do is make you look good."
Yes. I have the audacity to not only put that on my LinkedIN profile but on every cover letter I send out. I mean it.
Facebook and other social networking sites, the posts abound about how much so
many of us hate our jobs. I find it
disconcerting. If I owned the business
and seen a negative post about my company or our clients or customers, even
from the person lowest on the totem pole, I would find the reason I needed to
terminate them. Our first career
objective should be to make our business appear to be the best no matter where
we are at in the company directory. We
are all salespeople for our company, whether we make a commission or not. In the economic times we live in, no employer
can afford to retain negative people.
the hard and fast rules of a true professional:
You work for the best company there is for the
excellent product or service created.
clients and customers are the highest quality people in the world.
are honored to be involved with both.
I realize its difficult after a hard day’s work, dealing with problems caused by co-workers lacking professional skills or unreasonable clients. The truth is the customer is not always right and sometimes the workload is just impossible, but it isn’t our place to blast these troubles out to the world. If its solvable, fix it. If you need help, ask. For all other issues just “deal with it”. We don’t get perfect lives or perfect jobs. If you are that unhappy you should be looking elsewhere anyway. Even then, there is no excuse to publicly criticize any company you work for. They hired you and you work for them. Where’s your loyalty (and your gratitude)?
