North Coast Hot Jobs Aug. 1

Hello job seekers. Here is the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs listing, https://www.scribd.com/document/319978243/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Aug-1 

Ever wonder why some people are employed and you are not? Especially the ones who follow under the criteria listed below?

1) The Office Politician. These people create drama. I have also called them cubicle whisperers. They seem to have an opinion on everything and don't seem to get much done positively. They talk about co-workers and supervisors behind their backs and create friction between others based on innuendo and unfounded statements.
2) The Whiners. Would you like some cheese with that? Anyways, when a decision is made on a course of action for the organization, instead of supporting the supervisor's decision, these people will look for ways to undermine or discredit the new policy.
3) Mister Me-First. This person has an inflated opinion of their value to the organization. They feel the buck stops here and they want everyone to know that.
4) The Rumor Monger. They love gossip. They feel it is their duty to spread stories throughout the office about anyone, truth based or not.
5) The Slacker. They don't really accomplish much all day. Don't be surprised to find them playing an online game on the job. Usually, this person has been employed there for a while and has gathered some invaluable experience.
6) The R.O.A.D. Troop. The acronym R.O.A.D. was used in the military to mean Retired On Active Duty. These people were approaching retirement and were just coasting. They were just putting in their time and barely getting enough done to meet requirements.

This list can go on and on. You can go online and google something like, "Types of co-workers" or something similar.  Be careful of these people and avoid becoming one yourself. Getting the job done should be your number one priority

If you know of any Alaskan Native or Native American that is disabled and is having a hard time looking for work, ask them to contact the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe Vocational Rehabilitation Program Manager, Nora Norminton at 360-565-7257, ext 7483.

Have a good one.
