The term "It's just business" is confusing.
Should business relationships and personal relationships stay separate?
Is it okay then to behave in a different manner than one would towards their personal relationships?

Yesterday I spoke with a senior construction executive with a reasonable and serious frustration about being contacted by recruiters, sending his resume and information, and never hearing from those recruiters again. Of course, we all know he is not alone. Recruiters are notorious for ghosting people and complaining when candidates or client’s do the same.
The beginning of any employment is inherently an evaluation period and some companies embrace this with a probationary time, trial period, or some such language. The intent being to communicate the extra scrutiny the employee will experience to establish trust, learn the company, and contribute acceptably. By making the period explicit it reinforces the need for the person to be on their best behavior which theoretically enhances retention.
Employees; Career growth is built on trust, not job hopping.
Don't think that job changes are the only way to address pay and responsibility stagnation in your role.
Build the trust of your leaders and then ask for more responsibility and pay. Laziness expressed as job hopping is a shortcut to nowhere.
There is a lot of pandering, click-baiting, bad advice on LinkedIn for job seekers which discourages personal responsibility and discernment and instead suggests corporate discrimination (of many sorts) is the root of job-seeker woes. Oleg Vishnepolsky and Liz Ryan are notable viral examples. Their posts attract thousands of comments and likes.
The Ambassador Search Group team has grown by one this week with the onboarding of the talented Lauren Morrison.
We’ve all heard about firms who proudly flog candidates through an intense, convoluted, and long interview process. Their intentions are to be understandable rigorous. These firms have often experienced the pain of a bad hire and have swung far to the other extreme and now conduct numerous interviews, often over five.
We are excited by the safe and happy arrival of Carson Kastning, the newest member of TJ Kastning’s family. Carson is a month old now, gaining weight quickly, and just provided us with his first smile today.
