How to win over women at work: What you need to know
A year after being dumped by his ex, a woman who claims to be the founder of a dating app that allows women to meet their boyfriends and date in real time has spoken to Business Insider about the challenges she faced.
In this exclusive interview, Ekaterina Semenova, who was last seen in the company building, reveals how her former employers’ management had a role in helping her break down her ex’s behaviour.
She says her employers’ managers were also the ones who told her to change her behaviour, not the HR department.
Her company was founded by two women and it was also run by a man, but she says the management structure did not allow her to work as a woman.
She also said that HR had no role in changing her behaviour.
“I think that HR is very sensitive to the way you act,” she told Business Insider.
“If you do something wrong, they’ll take action.
If you’re nice and you say nice things, you’re good.”
But she says she felt pressured into changing her way of working and the HR team did not give her the respect she deserved.
“It’s very hard to get the support and the respect,” she said.
“They don’t like it when you have problems, they don’t want to have problems with you.”
So, it’s really hard to change yourself.
And it’s very difficult when you’re in the middle of a crisis.
“Ekaterina was not alone in feeling pressure.
A survey by US dating app Match.com found that over half of its US male users had had a woman in the same position as them.
It found that the most common reason for female candidates to leave a company is for the lack of support they received.
However, the survey also found that women who were offered a position where they were not supported were more likely to be disappointed.
Ekaterso also revealed that the men who she dated were the ones with the most negative attitudes towards her.”
In the end, I was a bad person,” she says.”
I’m a woman, I’m an attractive woman, so it’s not my fault.””
The majority of the men are very negative.
They don’t know how to get along with women, they’re not helpful and they don´t treat them the way I want.
“Eckaterina says that despite the negative attitudes she faced from her former colleagues, she still felt very attracted to them.”
But, they were so supportive and they told me to be myself.
They were very, very, good to me.
“However, Ekaterso said that she had to start working from home to stay focused on her career.”
Because I can’t do the job, I need to be focused on my career.
I need my friends to see me as a person.
“And I had to change my behaviour and my style of work.”
Eekaterina’s story is not unique.
According to Match.us, one in four women working in the US will experience the “disruption” of a male boss in their career.
Women are still struggling to find a job that matches their personality and interests and have had to take on more unpaid work to do so.
And despite the recent rise in online dating, women still face more barriers than ever before.
Eekaterso says that one of the most frustrating things for women to cope with is the fact that they are constantly being judged by the men they choose to date.
“You have to learn to accept that it’s a challenge for women in general.
We’re constantly judged by our choices,” she added.”
Women are just a bit too sensitive about that.
You just need to learn how to accept it.”
