Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome! If you are visiting our site for the first time, then we'd like to help you get the most out of it by answering some of the most common questions we receive: What is CAREEREALISM? This site is technically a blog, but before you cringe and think about leaving, let us explain that it is actually a powerful learning tool. Blogs have the ability to educate readers in a way that can maximize their comprehension in a minimal amount of time. By reading a blog post and the comments shared by fellow readers, we are able to gain greater perspective on a subject. In other words, reading blogs is a really smart way to absorb a lot of knowledge - FAST. Why was it created? Individuals are more confused than ever with respect to the smartest ways to find a job they enjoy. At the same time, Corporate America is struggling to understand how to make their work environments something worth committing to. We recognized a need to provide unique, interesting advice that could help readers find ways to achieve the success they desire. Instead of the same old content, we will be looking for ways to offer 'refreshingly real advice' that will inspire employees and managers to take control of their situations and make good things happen.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Diane submitted. She has recently worked with a co-worker on a group project. When it came time to present the project at a meeting, Diane let her co-worker present. While it went great, the co-worker proceed to take credit for nearly all of Diane's work. Frustrating to say the least!

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.
