Workplace Lab Podcast Ep 41 w/Tim Dahlby- Do job titles matter? | Taking a demotion | Bad reference from current boss

1024 683 Workplace Lab

This is our final episode before Spring Break! Join us again 7th April.

I am again joined by HR friend, Tim Dahlby for some Q&A, but first we try something new and check out twitter’s viral hit on office #clapbacks.

We answer your questions on whether or not your job title really matters and how important is your job description. We tackle a question from someone contemplating the repercussions from a demotion before agreeing to take one, and finally we discuss someone who feels as if their current manager might be limiting their future opportunities by giving negative feedback as a reference.

  2. What to do when you are facing downsizing/off-shoring.
  3. How do increase your successful conversion from an intern to a full-time employee.
