Ada has always worked in the bank.
From training school till date, its been 7 years. Has a nice ride and now about 4 bosses to the director of the bank.She is a senior Banking officer. Her take-home is good for the stress that comes with Banking.
She however is bored.
Bored to death with the routine of banking.Although she works in the back office,it doesn't change her wanting to do more strategic work and generally change industry.
She found an ad, her current role( which she has been on for 4 years) gives her the skillset to do this.
She excitedly applies.
Interview was Good, in fact great till she was asked for expected pay.
She mentioned about a 20% increase of her current pay at the bank. The countenance of the interview panel changed a little.
One of the interviewers then asked; What is the least you can take?
She responded with a 10% increase to her current pay at the bank.
She never heard back from them.
A few weeks later she called one of the other 3 candidates she met at the Interview, and was told the role had been taken.
The company offered the other lady what Ada was currently earning.
Ada is heart broken but life happens.
Do you think career change or industry change has to come with a pay cut?

You know we see a lot of nice pictures on social media?
We see a lot of good achievements...
We see a lot of six packs and we see a lot of nice bums...🍑
But let's give a little air time to things we are not keen to share.
Here's my non-highlight reel...
The side of me that my ego wants to desperately hide from you and social media:
I often expect too much of myself.
I find it hard to get close to people, even those I love.
I can hold grudges for too long before forgiving.
I try to run before I can walk.
I still can worry no matter where I have come from that I can still return to that shit-scared 21-year old and be a fraud. 👇🏼
A few of you will see this as negative, and that is ok, I just see it different.
For me being truly honest with ourselves along with the positive stuff is seriously lacking both online and offline....
I see too much 'fake-authenticity', especially in the fitness/influencer/celeb world where people will be 'vulnerable' for vulnerable's sake, but aaaactually be quite comfortable talking about it (thanks to @thenakedprofessor for reminding me of that) 👏🏼
(Remember: you don't need to announce anything you are uncomfortable with on social media like I am!😂 I'm just some dingus with a point I'm trying to prove to myself!!) BUT if you can do it in private, or with someone you trust, more self-acceptance and understanding through recognising the 'less-lovely' stuff is a path to better mental stability and strength!
Each of those 'weaknesses' I mentioned above is also a huge strength at the right time. And that's real powerful shit.💡
Never undervalue yourself. You're worth more than you know!

"Want to be a better firefighter?"
Try out these 3 tips every-time you enter your firehouse:
1. Learn something new every time you’re in the firehouse. No matter how small it is try to learn one new thing.
2. Take out a tool that hasn't been touched in weeks. Make sure it is clean and functioning. Don't remember how to use it? ASK! I bet there is someone else who is working that needs to go over it as well!
3. Read about your department and its history! Not sure why your department does something a certain way ask a senior member to go over it.

When it comes to finding a job these days, the biggest issue I see is how corrupt the hiring process has become. Although applying for jobs has become quicker and more convenient thanks to the internet, unfortunately many hiring managers have abused this system by listing unrealistic requirements and qualifications, discouraging many job seekers from applying. For example, how can you expect someone who just graduated from school and have 5 years of working experience?and even if they do meet the requirements and have the skills to do the job, sometimes they may considered ‘overqualified’. Plus, with so many people applying electronically, the resume is pretty much the only thing that hiring managers can rely on when granting interviews. Instead, they should look beyond the qualifications and try to get to know the applicants...their personalities, interests, value, level of ambition, etc. Unfortunately though, the managers don’t seem to do a very good job with this.

I set up my company 10 years ago at 23 from my dining room table in South Kensington, I had no formal qualifications in this field and only one project under my belt working for a developer. There are so many things I learnt: from experience, learning from talented people I worked with and mistakes I made along the way. There is no doubt in my mind I was always meant to be a designer, I truly love my job and feel excited by every project we take on, there is nothing more satisfying than creating your clients dream home. I often wished along the way that I had a mentor or someone in the industry I could ask for answers on how to deal with certain tricky situations... I know that many of you feel the same- judging by the huge amount of DMs I receive every day asking for career/ design advice... I don’t have time to answer each DM individually so I thought I would open up this discussion where you can comment below with your questions and I will try to answer as many as possible. Bear with me as I’m still on holiday in California... it’s night time here -there is an 8 hour time difference (plus I have a toddler and no nanny here and also business emails and enquiries to tend to with my team back in the UK) but I will do my best to offer honest advice. At this point I probably need to apologise in advance to my husband who is unlikely to get any attention in the next 24 hours 😉 if you can read through all the comments to see if I have already answered the same question you had I’d be grateful so I only have to answer each question once! 😉
