Reading Time: 6 minutes Some would argue that a job advertisement or job description that refers to working well under pressure is a giant red flag. Nobody can work effectively under too much pressure due to unreasonably tight deadlines, excessive demands, or a cutthroat culture.  But most employers looking to recruit someone who works well under pressure are really asking: “Can you think clearly, perform at a high level, and remain respectful to colleagues and customers, even when things don’t go perfectly to plan?” It’s not enough to simply say you work well under pressure on your resum ..read more

Reading Time: 10 minutes There are fewer things in our working lives that are more difficult than issuing an employee with a termination letter – unless you’re Gary Vaynerchuk or Elon Musk.
