2023/01/20 A lack of experience could cause problems at work in the first half of the month. If you feel out of your depth, ask for more training. Your employer may balk at first, but you can change his or her mind. Dont make a big production out of your request. Find the right time and explain the problem in private. This will work better than putting your boss on the spot in a public place. The days around January 26 could find you working from home. Youll welcome the opportunity to work in your pajamas. Setting your own schedule will make you more productive, too.
