I would love to extend an invitation to my friends (I have no qualms about a big party – the more, the merrier) but am concerned about the possible can of worms it would open…I work in a team of five people.
One (Marla) is very close and I consider her to be an honorary aunt.
She works on a very small team within a large corporation and is a member of the hiring committee.
She gave great insight into what qualities and skills they want for this role, none of which are actually listed on the very broad job posting. Or mention that this woman introduced me to the role through our organization?
One of my employees embarrassed me at a business lunch.
When it came time to pay, everyone took out either their own credit or debit cards or their company one.
It’s perfectly fine for her to pay in cash, it’s not unprofessional or a misstep, and it’s super weird that you’re telling her that it is.
Let her pay in cash if she wants to, and leave her alone. My supervisor gets a “bucket” of funds available to distribute to his team as he sees fit.
She has a landline and no mobile phone and she doesn’t own a TV or any kind of streaming service, and when she isn’t job searching she only checks her email once or twice a week.
But she doesn’t see why using cash a business meal or event is a faux pas or misstep.
I’ve been out of school for about two years now and have yet to land a role in my desired field.
