Way back before I became a stay at home mom, I used to be a recruiter helping others in career placement. It was a really fun job! It was more than a job to me I loved helping people find jobs and also loved helping our clients find the perfect match for a position they needed to be filled.
Don’t talk negatively about a former employer. Your attitude towards your previous employer speaks volumes to a future employer. Find something to say positive about your previous experiences. At the very least every job is a learning and growing experience. Focus on the positives!
Recently at a local community class, I attended through BillKrauseCoaching.com he shared some great tips on “How to Get Promoted” these are great for everyone as well as for other relationships in our life, not just work related. As a married couple these are great questions to ask each other, maybe shape them a little differently but still valuable.
Go to your boss and ask what you can do to help them, how can you help them solve problems, how can you make their life better, easier, how can you lighten their workload
Ask them what agitates you? Ask what do I do that I need to change.
Ask them will you mentor me, train me, develop me.
I have seen these tips work in my own life and benefit those close to me. I hope you find these tips helpful and will share with those you know looking for employment or promotion.

This is a great way to change up ‘Date Night’ from the usual dinner and a movie this would make a great date night! You will have time to grab dinner before or after the show. My husband and I love things like this. We love supporting our local talent and the arts.
If you have kids this is a family friendly event, kids are welcome. I know that this talented young man my boys were in a Christmas Musical with this young man, his voice is AMAZING, he has awesome stage presence.
New this year is Celebrate Kid’s Day every Tuesday in June from 1- 3 PM, they have a variety of activities planned, Art in the Park, Rachel the Mermaid, Polynesian Princess and Spiderman, and Local Heroes Day. Go to RWSac.com for more details.
With the kids home on summer break, I am always looking for ways to save time and money at the grocery store. If you have not tried ClickCart I highly recommend it. It is so easy to order your groceries on the App or on a computer and request for grocery pick up. This is extremely helpful with the kids on summer break. I can place my order, park in the designated parking spot and my groceries are brought out to me. Not need to take all the kiddos into the store. This is a huge money saver, because I don’t know about your family but my kids always find something “we need” that wasn’t on the list. If you need more details about utilizing ClickCart, check out this blog post I wrote http://bit.ly/2NqBdWF.
