Here are 5 things you should know.
1. Job Recruiters ALWAYS know the salary/compensation range for the job they are recruiting for. If they aren’t upfront with the information, they are trying to underpay you.
2. There’s a website available for free that will instantly get you into paywalled sites. No browser extensions are needed.
Check this: 12 foot ladder.
So far, it’s worked on every website I’ve tried it with. All you have to do is go to the website, then put in the URL, and it opens it for you. It’s a lot more convenient than downloading browser add-ons or extensions.
If you want to test it out, here’s a paywalled recipe from New York Times Cooking.
You won’t have to spend money or switch devices to read paywalled sites anymore, making your life just a little easier.
3. Although in America one of your Miranda rights is the right to an attorney and if you cannot afford an attorney one will be provided for you. In many jurisdictions, that attorney is paid by the city or county, but the city or county can then recoup that cost from the Defendant.
4. Scammers HATE web conferences.
If you are ever contacted on your phone by someone that you have never done business with before, and that you don’t know in real life, one good way to test their validity is to ask them to do business over some web conferencing software like Google Meet or Webex instead of the phone or email. This might be timeshare scams or other phony “too good to be true” deals. If they are legitimate professionals, they will have no problems doing so, but if they are scammers or criminals, they find some reason to not converse that way. They will provide any reason they can think of to avoid any potential records of their face. This might save you hundreds or thousands of dollars.
5. Giving two weeks notice to your employer prior to leaving is not a legal requirement in any state.
Employers and employees in almost all states are governed by a set of laws known as “work at will.” This means that not only can employers fire you for (almost) any reason or no reason, workers can quit for any reason or no reason. There is no time requirement imposed in either situation nor is there a manner of quitting you must abide by. An employer may request (or claim it is a demand) you follow certain steps, such as a two-week notice or partaking in an exit interview, but these are requests and not legal requirements.
While this general rule is true, there are some exceptions. If you have an employment contract or are working under a collective bargaining agreement, you may be subject to rules that other work-at-will workers are not.
