Trust your instincts.

If you are not comfortable with someone despite how attractive he or she appears, maybe they aren’t what they are supposed to be. Read profiles carefully; take note of warning bells that go off during conversations or emails. If, despite some steamy communication between you and your chat mate, the feeling of wariness doesn’t go away, it’s time to cut communication and move on.

2.

Don’t send money to people you meet online.

– Whatever the situation or story behind it, always remember: DON’T SEND MONEY TO ANYONE YOU MEET ONLINE. If you do, it may the last time you hear of the scammer. If you did this out of the kindness of your heart, you may be setting yourself up for pain and bitterness. There are a lot of decent potential dates out there and if they really are looking for love, they won’t be asking you for money.

3.

Create a safe profile.

– In this age where it is easy to locate someone through Google, identity theft is an issue you might want to take seriously. Keep your personal and contact details offline and don’t share personal information unless you know the person well enough. Use a free email ad instead of your official address. This way, it will be difficult for perpetrators to look up your information and use it for criminal activity.

How to Ask for a Promotion and Get It

“Ask for a Promotion and get it”

“Ask for a Promotion and get it”

Every employee desires to have a promotion, mainly because it means an increase in one’s salary. All recognition and no pay are just not enough. In reality, people want less work for more money. The company, on the other hand, wants to have more work for the least pay they have to release but many will be more than willing to give a promotion to employees who deserve, especially if the company has the financial means to do so. What should you do in order to get that promoted income?

1. Go over and beyond.

If an employee is asked to do something and does it accordingly and gets paid, that is just fair. If the employee, though, does over and beyond, and does so regularly because it is inherent in his/her nature, that work ethic makes the bosses turn their heads and notice. If you do that, you are on the road to getting the attention of the people who have the capacity to give you the increase.

2. Document all your good works.

If you have done a good job, make a note of it including its details so that when the time comes that you are ready to ask for a promotion, you can justify your request by letting your boss recall what you have done. That is another reason why it is good to go over and beyond. In a way you are planting good seeds for future reaping.

3. Timing is key.

Timing is very important when you are asking for promotions. It is very seldom that any employee will request for one if he/she has been working for less than a year. You have to be proving yourself for at least a year even before considering requesting a raise. Also, consider the person whom you are going to request the raise from. If that person is in a bad mood, you are likely to be rejected. The fact that his/her mood swings and shows, it means that he/she just cannot control his/her emotions as well as a professional should. Another factor is the financial capacity of the company.

4. Ask privately.

“Have a Private conversation with the Boss”

“Have a Private conversation with the Boss”

In almost any company, there is almost always a competition between at least two employees, vying for the good attention of the boss. Envy is also more likely to strike especially if one’s good deeds are better and yet another has been credited with higher recognition. You are not supposed to be in competition with other employees but yourself only. When asking for a promotion, do not put your boss on the spot by having another listen while you are requesting. If your request is declined, you can be very thankful you did it privately. If your request is granted, a surprise can await the others.

When you ask for a promotion, you just do not ask it outright. You have to work for it. It takes time but if taken with care; your request may be granted more with pleasure.
