I keep getting letters telling me that they’re looking for someone that more meets their needs. I’ve been applying for jobs that I have 25 years experience how can I not read their needs? #application #ageism

Stefano Sindoni: Here are a couple of ideas. First, you say you have 25 years of experience. On your resume, go back only 7-10 years. Also, what is your email address? I once counseled a man who "couldn't find a job" and one of the things I advised was to get a new email account. The reason was he had "1948" in his email address. That makes it easier to REMEMBER your email address but a manager looking at the resume is going to think that was the year he was born. Yes, we all know it's illegal to withhold a job on the basis of age but people still want to hire younger people so don't advertise your age. A manager can always say he didn't think that person would be a good fit. No manager is going to admit "Oh, I saw or I think he was born in 1948 and we don't want someone that old." No one is going to admit that - that opens him and his company up to a lawsuit!!! Also, no need to list all your experience. Just go back 10 years. Don't list the date you graduated from college - just put the name of the school. Avoid ANY info that could identify your age. Personal info like that isn't necessary UNTIL you have signed an offer letter. THEN, once you've landed an interview, go in PREPARED. Research the company, the job requirements, develop questions about the company, the role, and if you can, find a bio on the interviewer and ask questions about him or her. Be upbeat. And you WILL be upbeat if you have thoroughly prepared. If you can, take work samples with you. Take reference letters. For sure take something to write on. I take work samples, reference letters and even pictures of some of the meetings I have arranged. Bowl them over with yourself. Be relaxed, confident. Smile and have a spring in your step. Then don't hang your hopes on one place where the interview went well. Keep looking, applying, interviewing until you land a job that you feel fits YOU.

What job are you referring to? There are lots of Remote Customer Service Rep jobs. I see them posted #workfromhome topic. Just make sure you are only looking at the posts posted by Jobcase Community Specialist.

I’m working in a restaurant with weird rules where I cannot order takeout food order for myself before or after my shifts.

I must call/come to the restaurant the day I don’t work. The restaurant has a family meal which is a free meal for employees.

I worked in all different types of restaurants. Some of them let you order a free meal from the menu (cost fewer items, not the entire menu).

Some restaurants offer a 50 percent discount, but you can’t order takeout. You must have to eat your food at the restaurant.

What would you prefer to have a free meal or a discount on every purchase?

I'm looking for a new job, even if it is part time or gig work. Minimum I want to make is 400 a month, no less. I really been struggling for a job and I get an interview and they just didn't call me back after calling in 4 different times. #jobsearch #termination #advice #interview

I have been applying for international recruiting remote jobs for over a month now, and my location seems to be a problem (Nigeria). Does anyone have any tips for me? Because my bills are piling up, and my hope is diminishing by the minute.

I am a stay-at-home mom with children that attend school online. My youngest has started kindergarten and it is required that I stay with him during his classes. His older siblings can't do it since they are in school as well. I am trying to work from home but I am having trouble finding a non-phone job with favorable hours. I don't necessarily need a non-phone job it just can't be when he is in school. Does anyone have any ideas of what I can do or where I can work? #workfromhome #jobsearch #advice

Depending on the job, prior call center experience is preferred. Or having some customer service experience is helpful.
