When we are about to buy a product or a services, it is only natural to question the price of what we are buying.

I believe, though, there is a more important question to ask: "Which of these two categories would the purchase be? A cost or an investment B?"

The reasons for a career switch are as wide and varied as dissatisfaction at work, stagnation in your current profile or pure disillusionment with what your stream of choice has come to. Switching careers isn't the devil incarnate and sometimes that jump is just the leap your professional life needs.

While everything seems rosy on paper, be realistic about your aspirations and your abilities. Once you choose your new stream, speak to professionals from that industry and ask them details about that career option. Familiarize yourself with what you will be doing and think about how you can add to it and make it your own.

1.Don’t Ignore The Harassment.

If you believe that you are the victim of sexual harassment in the workplace, don’t ignore the problem. Studies show that individuals who sexually harass other people at work do not stop simply because their victim does nothing. Ignoring such behavior may actually make the harasser escalate his or her behavior. Talking about sexual harassment can be uncomfortable, but you can empower yourself by talking with other employees who may also be experiencing harassment by speaking up.

2. Make It Clear To The Harasser That The Conduct Is Unwelcome.

An essential element of a sexual harassment claim is that the conduct must be “unwelcome.” Harassers sometimes contend that their victims welcomed and enjoyed their words and actions. Although it can feel uncomfortable or even frightening to object, you must tell the harasser unequivocally to stop the behavior. There is no special way to do this or magic words to use; but you must make it clear that the behavior is unwelcome. You may want to put your position in writing, perhaps in an email. By doing so, you will have proof that the conduct was unwelcome if the harassment doesn’t stop.
