Now let's take a look at some of the hot conversations current job seekers on Jobcase are chatting about.
Working from home has become widely popular since the start of COVID and is growing more so every day, but it's not for everyone. Some prefer the convenience of working from home where others just can't stand the thought of being stuck there. Fellow Jobcase member Doreen says, "I would rather work from home absolutely!! Less office politics." What do you think? Would you rather work from home OR be paid more?
Ageism has ALWAYS been a hot topic, from being asked when you graduated high school to being treated as outdated and obsolete by employers. Fellow Jobcase member Brenden says, "I'm 58 and have experience in a number of areas and keep getting turned down. And flat out told I'm too old. Yep, too old. They want people who are 40 or younger and the younger the better because they can train them up the way they want them." What do you think? Can someone be too old to work?
Times are tough and when you look for a job even tougher. Here are some things that job seekers on Jobcase are chatting about that they wished they had right NOW! Fellow Jobcase member Janice says she wants, "Equal opportunity and peace."
What do you think? What would YOU ask for right now if you could receive it?
Following up is a great way to thank the employer for their time and mention one or two more things you may have forgotten or overlooked during the interview. Yet not everyone sends a follow-up or thinks it is necessary to land the job. Fellow Jobcase member Carter says, "I understand the point in doing this. In all honesty. I'm beginning to think it's a waste of time. I've heard actually say this to me, and to top it off: waste of postage. Yes. I do believe in doing it, but I really don't think it makes a difference."
What do you think? Is it THAT important to follow up?
We hope you enjoyed this week's edition of Jobcase hot topics!
