How To Deal With Difficult Colleagues When My Appraisal Is At Stake?

December 29th, 2009 by ROZEE Team

Question From Job Seeker

I have been working with an organization for more than a year. I like almost everything about it, i.e. my job, my work and the workplace. However, there is one thing that bothers me the most. Some of my coworkers are very hard-headed and difficult to deal with. Basically, the kind of work I do, requires an enthusiastic team-work, like sharing of ideas and mutual creativity. Basically, I come up with the concepts and the said colleagues have to make graphic designs on it. The problem basically occurs when, after much hard work, I come up with a brilliant idea, and they produce relatively low quality graphics, resulting in absolute deterioration of my idea. Due to these few thorny colleagues of mine, I am unable to give a first-rate performance at the tasks assigned to me.

These things did not bother me much in the past. However, just recently, I got to know that every employee is to be given a pay appraisal in a couple of months, on the basis of his/her performance throughout the year. After learning this, I have become much worried about my performance which has been negatively affected due to the difficult attitude of my colleagues. I have only two months to rectify my image and enhance my performance in order to get the appraisal. I need your expert opinion as how can I deal with these colleagues who hinder my progress through their non-cooperative attitude.

Career Networking – A Good Recipe For Professional Success

December 11th, 2009 by ROZEE Team

Editor's ChoiceCareer networking is a significant milestone in one’s professional life. In some organizations, especially in Pakistan, when employers are hiring new staff, their first inclination is typically towards employee referrals or internal searches. Both the job seekers and professionals need to have a network of contacts that can provide them career support, professional information and new vacancies, if any. Productive networking does not mean making use of your contacts for all they are worth. It means participating in a process of give-and-take, where people benefit from and help each other.
