Teacher (Former Employee), Kinoya ,FijiDecember 9, 2013
Pros: holidays and no shift work..free accomodation in rural schools
Cons: very low salary and lots of paper work demnding long hours...robbing my leisure time
busy as soon as i enter the school gate and the last to leave the school. I have learned to do my best and just excei in all ido ..to be an example to my officers in all areas of the job...not just a talk and do nothing which is the practice of some.Some do learn fast but others need constant reminders and much coaching on the job.
The hardest to cope – more... with are the ones who refuse to be corrected or given assistance to improve as students and collegue at work.THE best of part of teaching is getting to meet new people evry week,month and year and really reflect on self through the children i teach.Teaching is such a humble proffession where I get to be part of the child's life in a real way..since i am with the child 8 hours daily..Monday to Friday – less

Modern Foreign Language Teacher, Spanish (Former Employee), Antigua and BarbudaDecember 3, 2013
Pros: good work hours
Cons: salary does not fit work dedication and expectation
Once Planning has taken place before hand, a typical day is usually productive, it all depends and the teacher execution. I have come to the realization that once teachers are able to cope with the unfavorable situation at work, management lack being expeditious in making the situation better. Most staff members get along, the rapport with staff is – more... remarkable.The hardest part of the job is planning and the most enjoyable part of the job is when we see evidence that the children are learning base on responses, assessment results. transferring what is taught to real life situations. – less

school teacher (Former Employee), Westmorland, JamaicaNovember 27, 2013
Pros: gifts
Cons: poor parenting
a typical day was hearing my name called every second of the day, getting endless hugs and notes from my students. i leaned that students are like play claw, you mold them into what they become tomorrow. realizing my role as a teacher from very early i used my every skill and talent, all resources i had to be the very best teacher i could be.
my most – more... enjoyable part is seeing my students try, once they try i know they can only fail or succeed. but having me their side failure wasn't an option. – less

The day I become a manager.
Deputy Headmaster (Former Employee), Chibuto District- Gaza- MozambiqueNovember 12, 2013
Cons: health conditions are deplorable
It was a fresh day that started with sun shinning from the east as usually. I had planned the activities for the following day but unfortunately my colleagues had not got access to notice board. We had planned a meeting at top-level management that prepare all our activities up to the end of year The turn-up was weak and the meeting was held with few – more... elements.
The type of communication that we had used had failed. It was time up to read and update my skills on communication. I had to read and come to conclusion that horizon and vertical communication was important. The other top-management managers had agreed with me that our system of communication was weak so we had to improve through using other channels. We had to apologise for that inconveniences that we had caused.
The hardest part of a top-manager is to apologise to his subordinate and this is correct because nobody is alright. Top-managers need to retreat during a discussion in order to gain more space for decision making. When all activities are planned before hand even at a large company it becomes a small company. Collaboration with subordinate colleagues becomes fun when the planned goals are achieved at high and low level. – less

Teacher (Current Employee), North SingaporeNovember 6, 2013
Pros: long vacations
Cons: long work hours
The job demands full attention on students from managing behaviors to the administrative part of lesson preparation and other necessary administrative work pertaining to students.
Although there are challenges when managing people, especially Adolescence, it is rewarding to see growth in people.
I have learnt to observe the environmental setting of – more... the workplace before making quick responses in terms of behavior or words used. Maintaining trust in people is a vital tool for either opportunities to be offered or building relationships with co-workers or students. – less

Social Work with elderly in society
Organisational Development Advisor (Former Employee), KenyaOctober 20, 2013
Pros: capacity building, learning, networking opportunity
Cons: temporary assignment as a volunteer
It was a VSO volunteering assignment with certain tenure. I enjoyed working here as the Business Development Manager. I had a huge opportunity to contribute and I did just that with 100% success.

Since the NGOs in South Africa depend mainly on the Social Welfare Ministry, they rarely raise funds from other sources. I built up the desired capacity to – more... raise funds from the corporate sector, campaigns, exhibitions of handmade products by the elderly people etc.

This job was extremely satisfying. Unfortunately, It was only for a year. – less
