This week has been pretty slow on the job application front, though I think its partly due to lack of motivation on my side as well as there being very few jobs I think I have a good chance of getting an interview for. I have been thinking lately of my ideal workplace, and have put together a list of qualities I want the place I end up getting a job at to have. So in no particular order here it goes:
- Good and Open Communication - I don't want the company I work for to deal with things via email or over the phone instead face to face. This is because I find that emails can be interpreted many ways especially when it comes to major/serious topics. Over the phone is ok if its something little but I would rather their preferred form of communication be in person. This is a major one for me as I find that many companies prefer to use email regardless if its a big thing or not. I can take constructive criticism but not over email as I tend to ask questions until its clear for me what I have been doing wrong and what I need to do to correct it, which email isn't the best format for.
- Good Work Morale - I want to work for a company where everyone is happy to be working there and there is no grudges between the employees. I want to come to work happy and leave happy.
- Everyone is Respected - I don't want to be treated badly and I don't others to be treated badly. It shouldn't matter what job you have in the company everyone deserves to be treated with the same level of respect.
I would love to work in either a not for profit, government sector or local government and yes I know how hard it is to get work in any of those, but I have God on my side and he can make things happen. I also still want to work part-time as I want to get my Diploma in Business Administration via online and as I am a hands on learner if I can do it while I am working I can put things into practice.
I know God has the right job out there for me so I am just keeping praying and waiting.
