Forbes Best Websites For Your Career: We Need Your Help!

Dear CAREEREALISTS,


A few months ago, we received this message from a reader:

“The hardest part about being unemployed is the look on my child's face when he asks me to buy something and I have to tell him not right now, maybe in a few months, because I don't have the funds to get it for him.”

Last month, the unemployment rate was at 7.4%. Unemployment doesn’t just impact finances, it also affects your self-esteem, relationships, and overall health.

Here at CAREEREALISM, we provide FREE career advice, resources, and webinars to help you get back on your feet as soon as possible. Our goal is to help YOU find career happiness – no matter your age or experience.

But we need your help to spread the word to others in need.

When most people think of Nike, they think of shoes, retail stores, and, of course, athletes. That's all true, but there's more. Behind Nike's walls, you'll find the doers and thinkers who design, create, and innovate every day. There are also data scientists who discover and leverage athlete insights to create the future of sport.

You might be surprised to learn about the impact you can have in Data & Analytics at Nike versus at a major tech giant. Nike employees get to work on a wide array of challenges, so if you're obsessed with math, science, computers, and/or data, and you love sport, these stories may inspire you to work at Nike.

Employee loyalty is something every company longs for. It's estimated employee turnover costs as much as 130-200% of an employee's salary. When a talented, knowledgeable, trained employee leaves, it's bad for business. And, when lots of them leave, it can be the kiss of death.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the interview situation one of our viewers, Remi submitted. He was in an interview and was asked the question: How many cows are there in Canada right now? - What a weird question but this is a technique that some hiring managers are using these days.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Kevin submitted. He is a college student who's working a part time job to make ends meet. The manager/owner of the company has become a micro-manager who watches him work on camera and reads his company emails. A bit over the top wouldn't you say?
