The professional burnout is a long process which leads to the complete indifference to the work duties, growing discontent with the colleagues, feeling of professional incapacity and general mental, physical and emotional exhaustion. There is a number of reasons that can provoke the burnout: dissatisfaction with life, unsolved personal problems, conflicts, bad temper. The work atmosphere, relations with the staff and the management have no less impact.
“The very idea! I already have a job! I have things to do except that!” This seems to be a silly idea to read current job vacancies when everything is alright. However, the labour market is not like a soap opera with a happy ending: you have found your perfect employer and will live happily ever after… One day, the necessity to look for a job will arise (yes, again). Good if it is your own initiative and you have enough time.
The right look There is a special look that will make people defer to you, acknowledge you as a strong opponent at the subconscious level.

There are fewer and fewer subordinates and more and more managers in the offices today (the number of managers in the USA has increased by 41% since 1996 to 2016, but the number of job opportunities has decreased by 11%).

The problem of emotional burnout has been widely researched and discussed since the second half of the 20th century.

What should be done before firing a troublesome, yet useful employee A Murphy’s law: nearly every team includes a person who is like a nail in the shoe for the manager. The employee can spread around negativity, doubting the future of the company publicly and loudly or break the universally accepted rules, encouraging his or her colleagues to do the same with his or her behaviour or even instigate strife and hatred.

The world is constantly changing, and the young people are changing along with it. They are hard to understand, hard to work with and can doubtfully be trusted with managing posts. How to work with young managers? What young employees should you promote and whom can you give an opportunity to prove themselves?

In general, all job interviews are alike. The employer’s goal is to compare the candidate’s skills and experience with the requirements to find the best employee to perform certain tasks. The candidate’s goal is to present his or her strengths (supposing that the candidate meets all the requirements) and get the job if the offered conditions satisfy him or her. Job interviews differ in forms.
Any owner, whether a top manager of a large corporation or an entrepreneur from the small and medium business sector, dreams that his or her company runs like clockwork and requires minimal management intervention in solving routine tasks.
