I was with a great company for many years.and I was making six figures plus a year. I went through a divorce and have all three girls living with me. I have lost everything and have all kinds of certification's that add up to lots of money. But today I'm working through a temp service making $400 a week. It's not what I'm use to making and what it has made me realize is that all those years busting my ass was a waste of time and energy. I would... see more

So me partner of 18.5 years left on my second day getting a new job. It destroyed me and I ended loosing my new job. Then he sought to evict me, then not let me represent in the sale of the house. Then has been hostile. Now threatens to take it all away. I have been a mess psychologically. And indecisive and have bombed each job interview. Have a few places to go to, but can't decide. Which way to go.

How do you deal with divorce after being married 14 years? The pain doesn't subside much. My father privileges have been taken from me for the next three years. The emotional pain comes out sideways towards others around me. I walk around confused hurt and in the world by myself. I get irritated easily at work but I also focus most of my energy on doing my job to help ease the emptiness...

Just reaching out... I feel numb. Women look my way and I... see more

I haven't had a great deal of experience with working, for the most part I have been a stay at home mom while my husband supported our family. We ended up divorcing and he took off leaving me to fend for my family, although I still haven't found a job I am grateful for companies like jobcase. I had no idea these kind of resources existed, it's very helpful when your clueless of which direction to go when trying to find a job.

I left an abusave marriage of 14yrs. I was a stay at home mom. I don’t have much schooling and I am 47 years old. No place wants to hire me because I am old and I don’t have experience. I am one class away from my medical assistant associates degree. I have two kids and if someone won’t give me a chance to shine we will be in a homeless shelter. Should I just lie on my resume?
