Managing Conflicts At Work

April 14th, 2010 by ROZEE Team

No matter where you work or how well you get along with your coworkers, sooner or later conflicts are bound to occur. In professional life, conflicts and disagreements arise all the time. Most of the conflicts are minor which can be easily resolved and are quickly forgotten. However, sometimes disagreements can get ugly and create a lot of trouble and chaos. If you are unable to handle the situation properly, workplace conflicts can seriously affect your productivity and career growth in the long run.

Why do conflicts arise?

Conflicts arise in the corporate climate every other day and while there might be many reasons behind them, the basic reasons for conflicts can be broken down into the following categories:

Clash of ideas

Most of the people believe that they have the best ideas and they want others to follow their lead rather than listening to what their peers have to say. These people do not appreciate hearing ideas put forward by the coworkers and often find faults with them. When such people are challenged by their colleagues or feel threatened by the ideas put forward by the coworkers, they create problems and hence give rise to conflicts. Read More »

My Boss Thinks I Am Incompetent, What Should I Do?

April 14th, 2010 by ROZEE Team

Question From The Job Seeker

I have been working in an organization for two months now. My department consists of male staff only and I am the first and the only female in the department. The rest of the staff of the entire organization consists of 100 employees and the female ratio is considerably low. Those females who are working in other departments are employed at clerical positions. I have noticed that being a small organization it is one man show at my office. When I joined the organization I was given the hope that my management trainee programme could be shortened and would end in six months. However, after a month I came across my Managing Director who was having a conversation with my boss and saying that it’ll take me one year to understand the organization and my work properly. In another meeting, I heard that my training period has been extended to two years. These developments have been troubling me a lot and I am having serious insecurities. My superior doesn’t give me much work and it has been over 2 months since I have been working here. I feel that I am not doing as much work as I am capable of. My boss says that he doesn’t assign me work because I do not know anything. This baffles me since obviously I cannot do work unless he teaches me and tells me how to go about it. It is my first job, my boss does not even give me sufficient time and in my department we are the only two people. What should I do about this situation?

Maintain And Build Your References

April 7th, 2010 by ROZEE Team

Have you been through a series of interviews and failed to get the job even though everything was perfect? There are many steps that contribute towards getting selected for the right job, from polishing your resume to dressing perfectly for the interview. One of the most important things that the job seekers forget to work upon is gathering references for future job applications. All employers ask for references at some point during the hiring process, so you should be prepared to provide references that will work in your benefit. Most people think that references don’t matter much and the employers do not indulge in a background check. This concept is not at all accurate and while it is true that some of the employers do not take the references seriously, most of them do. When a big organization is about to hire you and make a significant amount of investment on you, they will definitely call some of your references to make sure that they are making the right choice.

Are There No Jobs For Fresh Graduates In The Market?

April 7th, 2010 by ROZEE Team

Question From The Job Seeker

I have done MPA with HR as major and I had very good grades throughout my academic session. As soon as I ended my studied I started looking for a job with full zeal. I applied everywhere I could and started waiting for responses. However, I did not get called for a single job interview. When I started calling the companies to find out why I had not been called for an interview, most of them told me that I did not have 2-4 years of experience, which is necessary for the job that I have applied for. After receiving the same answer from a multitude of organizations, I have become quite disheartened and have lost the will to keep on going. My question to the hiring authorities is that how can they expect a fresh graduate to have this much experience. It makes me very depressed and my attitude towards all the job hunting sites has become very disappointed. Is there any way you can help me get a job and hence change my attitude towards job hunting sites for the better?
