7 Reasons best employees quit, even when they like their job

Latest Posts

A meticulous and sincere employee is a valuable asset to any company. Losing that nonpareil employee is an abysmal situation to adapt to. The company has to spend again on acquiring any employee. The expenses done again on acquiring the replacement becomes an additional provocation for the firm.

But the most awkward situation arises when that best employees quits her job even when he likes it. What are those circumstances that compel a diligent employee to leave his most favorite job? Is that the dirty politics, some personal issues, the bossy boss, or his colleagues. Let’s find out the top 7 reasons why the best employees quit, even when they like their job.

1. Environment

The atmosphere where you work plays a crucial role in any employee. The unclean surroundings, the unhygienic food served in canteens, the dingy and unmanaged working area, are few factors which are disliked by some personnel. One who is too conscious about all these external factors never likes working in such an environment even if he is paid well or wants his job.

Some organizations might not give this reason priority, but for some, this becomes an important matter to get apprehensive about. It might be that your employee loves to work with you and your organization but he might not be able to handle the sordid environment. So, for an organization, it is necessary to consider the hygiene and well-being of the firm.

2. Affronted and underrated workforce

In many firms, yielding profits and completing the targets is the prime motive of every employer. They treat their employees like cats and dogs who should work without asking a single question. In these circumstances, the employee feels dehumanized and undervalued.

Though every firm is concerned about the profits and productivity of the business, it cannot be achieved if the organization’s team is ill-treated. The underpaid and obstinate work practices compel the employees to quit the job even if he finds it suitable for him. A happy, encouraging, and respected environment is expected from every firm so that the staff works in harmony.

3. Dirty politics at a high level of hierarchy

This is a typical situation at most of the workplaces worldwide. The moment at which groups are formed and people start bitching about the genuine employee of the firm, the case becomes intolerable for some. Those sincere employees who only come to offices for working, cannot stand such devious behavior of his colleagues.

The top to down intense leadership, favoritism and rigid rules often break the employee’s trust in the organization. Different rules for every employee weakens the urge to work in accord with other colleagues. So, the policymaking of the firm should be framed by keeping in mind every employee. Otherwise, no one could stop that unhappy employee who leaves the frim due to dirty dogmas.

4. No prospects

Working with the firm which has imprecise prophecies and no future to hold on, often becomes the prime reason for the employee to leave the job, even when he is designated at a higher position. The assiduous and brainy personnel often dislikes the ambiguity of thoughts and misbalanced system of working.

A firm’s objective and visualizations are of utmost importance. If the higher level of management only cannot adhere to the company policies and principles, then the general workforce will never be able to drag that firm methodically. And due to mismanaged and impractical conjectures, the best teams leave the job.

5. Lack of trust among peers

If the organization lacks the trust factor, then the system fails to work as planned. Too many fights, arguments, and differences in opinions often clearly show that the working system is not right and that the employees do not believe each other over any decision making process.

A firm cannot progress if the employees lack trust in each other and question every single decision made by the authorities. This kind of negative attitude of some people often leads to the loss of candid employees.

6. Veiled working practices

If an employee finds out something fishy going on around the workplace, he would definitely investigate the matter to the extreme levels. The situation might arise when he sees his employer favoring shady business practices, lying or conning his customers, and indulging in unethical dealing with others.

If an employer is caught doing all this with employees’ naked eyes, then the best and the most principled staff will leave immediately.

7. Unproductivity and overburden

When the employees do not see any personal growth and find themselves burdened with the same type of work for years, then the intellectuals naturally leave. Inspiration is needed for these employees in the form of appreciation and growth. They should be given better opportunities to enhance their skills thru education and training.

Work must be divided in such a way so that no one feels burdened and the targets also get completed on time. The beneficial, growing, and light environment can only stop those sincere workforces from leaving work.

Conclusion

In most of the cases, it is found that the sincerest people leave their jobs due to fraudulent working practices or the nature of their subordinates, and not because of the work they are doing. So, every employer should do enough to retain their best employees as they are the commendable assets to the company.

“I never dreamed about success. I worked for it.” — Estée Lauder

Being jobless is the most intense situation of life which you can’t avoid at times. The situation might arise due to sudden economic changes or your personal issues with the peers. Well, we cannot control everything in life, but there are a few things which fall under our control, and we can secure the desired job by managing them effectively. Here, we are talking about the very first impression set in the minds of the employer –Your Resume.

When you are seeking out for a new job, be careful with the mistakes you tend to make in your Job Application or RESUME. By focussing on the few vital aspects you can still lessen the stress of job hunting. We all know that Resume is the crucial element of any job search. A well-written job application will make you a beneficial product for the company by telling your strengths.

However advanced and high-tech the environment becomes, one should always know how to pull a compelling CV to get the preferred job. You must present yourself so competent, that the employer thinks twice before neglecting your silhouette. But only highlighting your one aspect is not enough, and you need to cover all the vital aspects of your professional life candidly.

How to avoid 9 #Resume mistakes on any #job #application Click To Tweet

Let’s check out those Resume Mistakes which many candidates tend to make unknowingly.

1. Wrong Fonts, Bullets, Dimensions and Spacing

First things first. Whenever a person looks at your resume, he will first look at the overall manifestation while describing your professional and personal life. While preparing the resume, be careful about all the fonts used in various headings and sub-headings.

A proper spacing and framing of paras will always give a good impression in the eyes of scrutiniser. It will take them straight to that point which they are looking for. Always remember; the first reaction which you get is from the look of your resume. No one would even understand the subject matter if you ignore the basics.

2. First things put in last

This is a pervasive mistake which most of us commit while putting the main pointers of the resume. Before designing your resume, go through the tips from the experts and keep that information first which is essential from the reader’s point of view. For example, as per the perfect resume’s layout the personal details are written first, then the summary, highlights and later the experiences and background.

The sequence-wise division of the resume’s components will help the scrutiniser to get a better vision of your achievements and other essential details. So, it is necessary to follow a particular format to sort out the job application’s subject matter as per the priority.

3. Too much boasting

I have seen many CVs that only describe the achievement of the applicant rather than focussing on the overall professional traits. An employer will not judge you solely on the basis of the certificates and awards you have received, but also your outlook in various grounds. Even your hobbies and interests might sound interesting to the employer, or he might select you by your collective performance in other engagements.
Even lying and giving incorrect or abundant information might give a wrong impression about you. So, better try to be truthful and meticulous in your approach while writing a resume.

4. Being Jack of all trades and master of None

Often attempting one size fits all strategy doesn’t work at all. Remember the firm you are applying for and direct your application towards that. For example, if you are applying for a managerial job, try to plan the resume in that direction only.

Adding unnecessary details about your first clerical job or you sport career before this doesn’t make any sense. Always add those points which take the observer straight to the desired feature of yours.

5. Too long or too short resume

The candidates applying for a job often practice the same thing again and again. Either they make the application too protracted that it seems like a story, or make it too short that even main points are ignored. So, you need to balance the resume well with all the adequate and to the point info.

6. A wrong purpose

Most of the resumes’ which have the same or repeated objective, are discarded first by the employer first. Try to be simple in your approach, and just don’t copy someone’s lines to your application form. Come out with the most basic but original ideas of yours, so to make your resume more appealing to the eyes of the assessor.

Every examiner gets the first impression of yours by reading those few top lines written in your resume. So, be genuine and try to show your diligence for the organisation at max. A meaningful objective mentioned will give employers something specific about you and how it will work their company.

7. Don’t get Fancy

A resume is not an article to be posted for various audiences in the market. Try to keep it simple, readable and up to the mark. Including your information via charts, diagrams, or too many highlighting colors will not give a thoughtful look to your job application. And moreover, it will become a headache for the employer to understand the simple meaning of what you want to say.

So, include all the information under proper bullets and design your resume in such a way that the viewer gets straight to the point and understands what you want to say about yourself.

8. Not including low profile tasks done

Most of us are of the impression that a resume including all the great errands done in the past must be included. But that’s not true. One has to be more observant about the small but important jobs done in the past, as these sometimes influence more to the employer than other big jobs served. For example, including a trivial role done to raise charity for an NGO will give a strong positive impact of yours stating your social responsibility towards the society.
You must also not include the past job issues with the boss or the colleagues of the previous firm. This might raise the ears of the interviewer and make him think twice before employing you. The soft and social skills gained from the earlier tasks only prove to be beneficial for any organisation who want to hire you.

9. Missing the use of right words

It is often noticed that resumes’ lack right phrases on the part of contender. No first and third person pronouns should be used to make the resume well turned-out. Even one should avoid words like- “Responsible for” or I did”; instead use words like “took part” or “resolved situations as a part of organisation”, etc. These words always show that you are prepared to work in and as a team.

Final Thought

All the points given above must be considered while preparing your next or first job’s CV. So, don’t commit these mistakes and you will surely leave a great impression on the minds of the interviewer. If you are careful about these slipups, then your resume will definitely rise over the above.

Germany Startup Jobs aim to help Germany‘s entrepreneurs of newly established businesses find the most qualified team member(s) and get their projects done by highly efficient professionals from Germany and a global pool of talents; thus, boosting their business significantly. The high-quality job portal eliminates the time-consuming job seeking, tracking, and hiring processes and matches every job giver with the right job seeker.

Germany Startup Jobs offers locally-based startup businesses a unique opportunity to grow their business by finding and hiring the most qualified candidates through a single-step, user-friendly process. That way, new business owners can save considerable time from having to go over numerous resumes to find the right person for the job required and money spent on purchasing recruitment software while candidates can easily connect with much-promising businesses with enormous potential.

According to statistics, 40% of businesses fail within the first year and nine in ten entrepreneurs that start a business fail during their first five years of operation. One of the principle reasons for this is having a poor management team. If the work done in building, implementing, and promoting a product or service is weak, and if customer satisfaction does not meet the expected standards (at least), startups are doomed to colossal failure. That aside, a weak management team builds weak teams below them, which leads to important revenue lost. Eventually new businesses run out of cash and go bankrupt. However, newly established companies cannot afford complex HR processes, but they do need to keep application tracking records without spending enormous amounts to recruitment agencies or any other highly-paid third party to find the right people and build great team.This is where Germany Startup Jobs come in and make the difference.

Germany Startup Jobs has created a platform specifically designed for innovative SMEs (Small Medium Enterprises) in Germany, and focuses on:

Ensuring startups find the best, most qualified candidate(s) for their project.
Offering an easy, one-click recruitment and job finding process, saving both parties time and, of course, money.

Helping the local communities fight unemployment by giving skilled Germany‘s professionals the opportunity to get a job relevant to their skills.

Reaching job seekers on social networks, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Xing, Google+, among others.
Allowing talented people from all over the globe to work remotely and contribute to business growth.
Providing startups with a remarkable opportunity to have their business running 24/7.

“Our goal is to help both SMEs and talented individuals so that startups can flourish. For that reason, we implement strict application acceptance rules, and each resume undergoes meticulous review. Germany Startup Jobs is proud to start an innovative project, created to give new entrepreneurs a time-saving, all-in-one solution to their most urgent needs and issues and a valuable helping hand to succeed.”

Once the idea is ready and sure to be implemented, one must make sure it complies with the policies of German government and maintains the legal requirements. Some of the most elementary things to be kept in mind are as follows:

1.Residence Permit

If you are from a Non-European (non-EU) country, the primary step is to get yourself registered for a ‘residence permit’. There are two kinds of permits that one can get (depending on what you have applied): One with no-permission for self-employment and other for permission with self-employment.

2.Valid reason to start

The only way another country allows you to start something is when you provide a valid reason to build the start-up. Question arises of what you bring to their economy and that is a reasonable reason you should have an answer to.

3.Changing of ‘residence permit’ type

If you already have a residence permit, but it officially does not allow you to be self-employed, you must apply for self-employment permission at the foreign office.

4.Assessment stage

Knowing the reason is just the start. You need to closely assess your idea and present in terms of amount that is required for investing, potential employment opportunities that you can help in arising within the society and contribution to the society in various aspects. Once all these aspects are clarified, the administration gets a better view of your idea.

5.Student to employer

If you have studied and graduated from any of the universities of Germany, and the idea of entrepreneurship lures you, then you must make sure one key point: The idea of the start-up must be in relation to your studies. If your start-up can bring about changes for betterment in your field, it makes it easier for the government to provide you with an opportunity to pitch in your potential.

6.Making it official

Once you have a clean state and all the above points clarified and prepared, it is time to submit your application for “residence permit for the purpose of self-employed commercial activity” or so-called “Aufenthaltstitel zum Zweck der selbständigen Gewerbeausübung” to appropriate office for foreigners in Germany.

Start gathering your thoughts and documents and all wish you good luck.

 

When you apply for a job in a start-ups in Germany, the Curriculum Vitae (CV) is one of the most important documents. For the HR Manager, your application is by far the best way to get a first impression—and often it is your only chance.

1. KISS—Keep it short and simple

The correct length is actually not too hard to find (although there are plenty of applicants who write whole books about their professional careers).

  • Remember: One A4 page in a CV for 10 years of professional experience.
  • Try to concentrate on 3 to 4 of the most important bullet points instead of listing all tasks you did in your career; everything else distracts from the essential part. 
  • Too short a CV may not be smart, too: The interviewer will have no idea of who you are and what your main skills are.

2. Proper Outline

After setting out the document, it makes sense to put the information in an intelligent structure, so that recruiters out there get to see the most important stages and information at a glance.

A popular and logical structure for a German CV is:

  1. Personal data (contact details, address, date and place of birth)
  2. Academic qualifications (university degree, major field of study; other schools attended)
  3. Career (all previous jobs and internships, if necessary)
  4. Further developments and skills (language course(s); additional training; volunteer training)
  5. Other skills (language skills; computer skills, if necessary; driver’s licence; interests)

Remember: It depends on how long your academic career is.

Tip: Depending on how long your professional career is, Points 2 and 3 should be definitely changed. So, when your work experience is longer than 1 year, make sure that your last position stays on top. A 35 year old man with 15 years’ of working experience sets his focus on his work achievements rather than his university degree.

3. Professional picture

After you have set up the content, the part that first jumps to the recruiter´s eye is still missing: the application photo.

Although it is no longer necessary in an application to integrate a photo in many countries, it still enjoys great popularity in Germany (although many HR managers would deny this).

Make sure that your expression is friendly but not too cheesy
Never try to make one of these embarrassing poses, like supporting your chin on your clenched fist. Terrible!
The best placement is often the upper right corner of the first page

“It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen.” – Scott Belsky, co-founder of Behance.

I see a lot of my friends and acquaintances coming up with new ideas and trying to create a new life for themselves. In my opinion, a goal without a plan is just a dream. And before you have a plan, it is essential to ask these simple questions to yourself. Once you have the answers sorted and you are absolutely sure about it, no one can control your flight henceforth.

So, let’s begin.

1)  Why do I want to do this?  – Has been a life long dream or a sudden interest to do things by yourself? Do you think like a person who can convince people to accept your idea? If the answers to any of those questions is yes, you have surely started at the right place.

why-me

2)  Is my idea going to keep me motivated? – Are you motivated by the concept of a startup or the idea that may give rise to one. If your idea or concept is where your mind lies, then this will definitely go a long run!

funny-gif-ideas-motivation-switch

3)  Do I have a reliable team? – Is there a friend or a colleague or someone you are in partnership with that you can trust on? Is that person into the concept of a start-up as much as you are? Are you both or your team as motivated? Single-handedly you can do what you are good at, but there is always a team effort at back-end and for that, you need people who have your back.

27-teamwork

4)  Do I have sufficient funds? – Stories about a start-up being started in a garage or basement are right and true. But do you have the funds to self suffice until your concept is launched? It can take a while before you have investors and until then every penny counts. If you have sufficient funds to at least represent yourself in market, well, you have a green signal there.

sufficient-funds

5)  Time factor? – If you have constantly someone who needs results within a short span and other responsibilities at hand, like your family or education loans, then maybe you need to stop before taking this step. But if those factors are not in the picture, and have the patience till you hit the market, keep working!

time-factor

6)  Am I ready for other possibilities? – Who doesn’t like success? Who doesn’t want to be famous and rich? But, there is always another side to the coin. If you have the courage to be a realistic person and be ready for the other side, in case you get hit by the wind, then start-up is the thing for you.

endless-possiblities

7)  Is there a market or audience for my idea? – If you are trying to sell an encyclopedia in times of Google, think again my friend. Evaluate your idea with the market and hit it right. Someone once told me, it’s all about how you pitch in.

pitch

8)  Do I have what others don’t? – If you have the confidence, motivation, idea, time, money and courage to face the endless possibilities, with no fear of failure, go ahead and start a START-UP! Believe in yourself, and be that good, that you should be able to “Sell ice to the Eskimos”!

All the very best for your plans!
