Mindblown: a blog about philosophy.

  • Critiquing a Recruitment Ad

    I would say that my brand is going above and beyond in anything I do. I make sure I meet expectations and if I can, go above and beyond. The first impression I present to potential employees is that I am a hard worker. When I put my mind to something or dedicate myself to […]

  • Job Descriptions

    The last job I had was on campus as a Peer Advisor for the College of Business Advising Office. My experience on the job matched the job description very closely and better than I expected. I understood that I was going to assist the advisors with their appointments but scheduling appointments for them. I also […]

  • Experience with Discrimination

    The outstanding claims of discrimination would definitely change the way I feel about the company because I already had an idea of who they were and what they brought into my life. But hearing about the discrimination claims towards an ethnicity, culture, or belief system that I associate with, that would make me feel disgusted […]

My experiences from the perspective of an applicant for the last job for which I applied would include finding out that the position was available, applying online, and going through the interviewing process.  Reading through what the position […]

  • Executive Compensation

    The factors that help to explain the rise in executive compensation are organizational size, organizational growth opportunities, and organizational risk. As an organization grows, so does the quality and work of most managers and they need to get paid accordingly. CEOs and executives have the responsibility to look over the organization, complete operations, guide and […]

  • Blog 1: Asking For a Raise

    My cousin told me he asked our boss for a raise and I asked him why because I was curious and didn’t think much of it. He told me that he’s been given more responsibility, has been taking action when necessary, and dedicates his time and effort to doing a great job at work. He […]
