Hi fishes. I had a phone call scheduled with a partner but she didn’t call me in the end. Would you remind her or just wait for her to call back?

I think my Director has a few screw looses. He calls me at inconvenient times to tell me a micro detail and puts the blame on me, he micromanages my work, and his leadership and direction is absolute trash. He called me for a 2 minute call to tried and CHANGE the hours I work. I work a 9-5, but he wants me to start putting in a 7:30 - 5:30 (I’m salaried 😪) I’ve been looking at TikTok’s “How do you Professionally Say” so I can him the big F-U in a professional way. Can’t wait until I start school

There are many reasons why people in the working world are not direct when speaking. They are one of the following:

* They pretend they are experts
* They are inexperienced
* They are full of themselves
* They don't know what they are looking for
* They love to talk

Even if these people have good intentions, be careful of them. Your time is valuable, and the best thing for you to do is to be direct back at them.

I’ve asked my manager several times in the last year to be promoted to a level 2 position in our dept as we had a team member in that position leave. She repeatedly says we interview everyday for the job. It’s been months and no changes. No one in our dept has been promoted. How many times do I need to ask my manager about it?? Do I go back to her again or do I go above her and go to her boss??

Have you been fired before even starting your new job?

I signed for a new job two months ago and will start next month (3 mo notice period in Europe). They were very keen on getting me on-board ASAP before signing but since I signed the contract it has been silent from the new employee. I've emailed them with questions as I'll be re-locating to NL and it takes them 1-2 weeks to reply. Given all that's going on in the world, I'm worried they might fire me before I even start.

A senior employee who was managing my role alongside her role before I was hired has my work email connected to hers. I’ve been hired from last 5 months and my email is still connected to her email so she has access to all my emails and conversations. I’m not comfortable with her having that access but I’m not sure how can I confront her about it. Any ways on how I could tell her politely. I don’t want her to feel bad and make it awkward as we work in the same room right across each other.
