YeahItSucks.com is the place where all sides can come together to speak frankly about work issues (layoffs, searching for jobs, people at work, etc.). Here, we put a name on it (it sucks), share what we’re going through (it sucks) and then work towards moving forward (which shouldn’t suck).
Why is there a need for a site like this?
There’s no shortage of sites available to promote how great things are in our lives, but when the going gets tough, people don’t talk. Think about it, how many people do you know that have posted publicly about losing their job – or job issues – on sites like LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.? (Not. Very. Many.) Now, think of how many people you know that have lost their job or they’re grappling with issues at work? (This number is likely larger than the former group, right?) Everyone has their reasons for not wanting to “talk about it” and it probably has a lot to do keeping up public and/or professional appearances.
That’s where we come in. Here, you can be anonymous, say what you’re really thinking and help others along the way while moving forward yourself. (It’s a win-win if you ask us!)
If you choose to stay silent, you are alone… but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Sounds like a pity party waiting to happen.
If you need to vent, that’s ok. That’s part of the process of getting these thoughts out of your head! It will become painfully obvious if you just want to complain and don’t want to do anything to help your situation. At the end of the day, if you want to move forward, this community is here as your sounding board and to help you with the choices that lie ahead.
Ok, so how do I get started?
You can make comments, respond to (and create) topics without creating an account but we encourage you to set one up. (You can still be anonymous!)
By creating an account, you’ll be able to:
- Easily track and follow conversations
- Vote content up and down
- Join groups (when they get started)
- Personalize your profile
You can create an account here and don’t forget to check your email to activate your account.
When you’re ready to have your say…
- Introduce yourself by telling us what your “it” is as in “yeah, IT sucks”
- Jump into some conversations or start a topic of your own
- Read through our blog posts and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
We’re just getting started so be sure follow us for updates and tell others you think would benefit from the platform!
We’re in this together…
YeahItSucks.com is here to fill a void we see in this social media system and we hope you find it useful! Should you have any questions/comments, feel free to contact us here.
The more you put in to something, the more you get out of it!
