Being overemployed can be a good thing. What is overemployment? It simply means working more hours than what is considered full-time for two separate full-time jobs. Usually, this is working more than 40 hours per week. You may be thinking that this doesn’t sound like a good thing, but hear me out. Working more hours can actually help you in several ways.

First, it can help you make more money. This is obvious – the more hours you work, the more money you’ll make. But this can be helpful if you’re trying to save up for something specific, like a down payment on a house or a new car. Every extra hour you work is one step closer to your goal.

Second, working more hours can help you learn new things. If you’re in a position where you can learn new skills, take advantage of it! The more skills you have, the more valuable you are as an employee. This can lead to better job opportunities and salary increases down the road.

Finally, working more hours can simply give you a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment to meet your financial and economic goals. If you’re feeling motivated, why not get overemployed?

StoryTime Career Series – Episode 2: Toxic Work Environment

This is second of the StoryTime Series on my podcast and YouTube channel sharing stories of all of our experiences in the world of careers, jobs, contract work, independent consulting and business interactions. In the second episode, I share one of my experiences while working in a toxic environment. The names, dates and other information were kept confidential to protect the innocent or guilty party.

The objective is the learn and grow from our professional and personal experiences to become a better version of ourselves, professionally. This particular story hits home and taught me so much about myself and the level of restraint I earned during that time. If it wasn’t for a great friend talking me off the proverbial ledge on a weekly basis, I probably would have been arrested for physical assaults and verbal altercations. The tension was thick and my stress level went through the roof! I am grateful to have survived it without loosing my composure.

What did I learn from this experience?

I learned that people and their preconceived notions are so strong, it allowed them to spread malicious lies about other people’s character. Keep in mind, they never took the time to get to know the individual but somehow felt entitled to assume things about people. Needless to say, the very sword those people intended to injury others, they ended up falling the same swords.

I learned corporations set up “certain people” for failure. For example, training some employees on the 25% – 30% of their duties while training other employees on 90% of their duties. They followed up by measuring each employee’s job performance without the same level of detailed training. So the employee with 30% of the training will never perform at the level of the employee that received 90% of the training. When questioned about why the training levels are different when the expectation of performance is the same, you receive responses like “training is a privilege“.

I learned that we all have a choice with the work environment we choose to spend our time. In my case, this employer terminated me for job performance, when I received less than 50% of the necessary training to be successful. It was the second termination from a job that I felt relief! The relief of not ever setting foot in that toxic environment.

If you find yourself having to self-talk your way into the doors of your job every morning…just so you don’t want the entire place to explode while you’re on a lunch break…It’s time to get a concrete career plan specifically tailored to you leaving that toxic environment for GOOD!
