Why Is It So Hard to Leave a Bad Job?

I often hear from photographers that technology makes it so easy, anybody can take photos now.
1. That's good. Being locked out of a creative field because of cost is denying talented people opportunity.
2. Better gear doesn't mean you don't work as hard, it just means you can achieve a lot more for the same effort.
This week on STEAM Powered, our conversation is with Evelyn Lee, Head of Workplace Strategy and Innovation, Slack Technologies.
Architecture has always struck me as a multidisciplinary field. It draws knowledge from all areas of STEMM into creating the spaces in which we live and work. But that's not always how this profession is perceived and this reflects in the way the industry has and needs to evolve.
Evelyn Lee is Head of Workplace Strategy and Innovation at Slack Technologies, and Founder of Practice of Architecture. Join us as we speak about the Evelyn's journey through architecture and tech, the future of architecture, and systems thinking in physical and organisational environments.

When you're trying to move from an Intermediate to a Senior level, one of the key pieces is learning about working across teams. At an intermediate level, you will often get assigned into work groups or tiger teams, but at a senior level you're expected to be the one pulling people together. Here are a few ideas of things you can try to do at an intermediate level to build up that experience with driving cross-team collaboration.

Khaya will be looking at the questions daily between July 17th and July 21st 🤝
I've known since mid Primary School --- maybe Standard 2 (Grade 4, in today's parlance) -- that I've wanted to write code for a living. The TYPE of code changed over the years, but I never wavered from the ultimate dream.
I'm 43 now, I've been a professional coder for 26 years, and I love my job. I have bad days, and I've worked for bad companies, but the good absolutely outweighs the bad.
And when I've worked for bad companies, it hasn't been for long because I've always been able to either make the situation better by taking control of my destiny and the conversation, and speaking to the people in charge and getting things changed, or I've been able to find a position at a different company that suits me better. I've never felt like I had to rely on a union or other third party to fight my battles for me; "If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, move on." is what I was always taught.
Anyway, I digress. I love my job, and the company I currently work for is amazing. I know that makes me really lucky, though, and I feel terrible for people stuck in jobs they hate, who feel like they have no way out. People who've perhaps NEVER been lucky enough to have a job they love.
I pray that everyone can one day feel the sort of job satisfaction I do, but for many, that's probably never going to happen, because I think for a lot of people, it's either the *notion* of work that they hate, or their passion isn't something they'd ever be able to monetise. :(
I have two linked announcements:
I'm unofficially/officially retiring from freelancing as an #accessibility consultant. The decision has been long in coming. While I will always continue to care about accessibility work, I no longer find it fulfilling. I will continue to be involved in projects that highly interest me as I've been doing for a couple of years now.
I'll focus instead on mentoring, leadership, executive training/coaching and other such work.
Part 2 coming soon!

I miss the days of finding a job in the want ads. In an actual newspaper (Yes, I am that old). It was so short the company was forced to tell you what the job was very straightforward and to the point. A company would go broke paying for space for all this creative writing bull shit they come up with now.
Just tell me what you want me to do! Don’t try to spice it up and make it sound more involved than it actually is.

I was recruited into my current job from another job I had talked my way into at a firm who hired me in the first place because of a prior similar job. Which in turn I got because of a prior similar job. Which my mom got me.
A thread on privilege and the weird arc of #careers (reposted from the Blue Place with some light editing).
Why aren’t there enough #WomenInCybersecurity? The answer may lie not in the depth of 2D statistics but in the real-life narratives of the women in the sector that have trodden the path. @eleanordallaway gets to the heart of the gender gap by telling those stories, uncut, uncensored and, at times, unbelievable…

Anyone else feel dread after accepting a #LinkedIn connection request you probably should have ignored?
I'm locked into my current pursuits, but still want to build my network for the future so I don't want to turn down viable connections. However, getting pitched for jobs that I know I won't even be able to consider is depressing.
I find myself reading them and thinking "Oh, that sounds fantastic. The grass sure looks lush and green on the other side!"
I promise you, gatekeepers out there, there is more than enough cybersecurity work in existence, more than you could ever handle. So let someone grow, develop, be able to ask questions, get out of their comfort zone, and have that curiosity and energy to learn. You might even have to rely on them some day for something you don’t understand.
Young or new cybersecurity professionals, if cyber is your passion, don’t give up. Keep banging on doors, asking questions, building and breaking things. Just keep learning.
How a company deals with layoffs and its critical employee stakeholders intersects uncomfortably with its espoused purpose. This week, Dr. Dorothea Baur helps us think through this and the #ESG considerations of layoffs.
From there, we find hope in a #sustainability talent gap, representing a pivot to purpose for some #JobSeekers.
