Working after a sabbatical

My husband and I moved to an extremely rural area when he got promoted and an area that was farm land and a truck stop. One year turned into four and while my career has been in business administration and general accounting I’m having an extremely hard time angling myself as an attractive candidate with this much time out of my field. In addition, some of my references are no longer with their perspective companies. Any advice?

Gratitude: The Trait That Defines Perspective

Hey Jobcasers,

Today I'd like to talk about something that seems a little difficult in our search for the next best employment opportunity: Gratitude.

Gratitude is perhaps one of the most difficult things to muster up during a rigorous and harrowing experience such as unemployment, homelessness, and similar events, but I would argue that it is perhaps the most important thing to muster up--more than hope, more than tenacity, more than even…

Very nicely put Gage. I have had allot of opportunity to go into sales and I chose not to because of just what you said. I am a…

The greatest thing I enjoyed about working for #KatzmanEnterpriser was

Enjoyed working as team player sharing knowledge with co workers, improving the accounting system. Enjoyed also personal progress and stability.

Sounds like a great experience Carlos Melgar - thanks for sharing!

So I had a job interview at a job that was about 50 min away. They technically hired me on the spot except for the fact that she never said those magic words “you’re hired!” She just introduced me to the entire company as “our new AP Accountant” as she gave me the tour of the building. The first week I hardly worked due to computer issues. Second week I was finally able to begin working on entering invoices into the system. At the start of the…

They really should give you an explanation as to why you were let go! It doesn't sound like you were on the job long enough for…

Need Advice

Like everyone else looking for work, I have been applying for tons of jobs and getting no response. I have been out of work for the last 5 years because I have been taking care of my mom. My question is, do I put this on my resume or on a cover letter????? Otherwise it just looks like I have been doing nothing since 2014, which is not the case. This last 5 years has been the hardest work of my life. Caregiving, especially for a parent, is…

Yes, definitely explain the break-in-employment in a cover letter. You don't have to go into detail, but you should focus on how…

I have worked as an accountant for a nonprofit for ten years. Along comes my supervisor's son who is very inexperienced, has no degree and appears to me to have an attention deficit. She teaches him all day long in preparation for the job. He receives the same pay rate as me. She goes over my timesheet with me about my hours at the end of every period. She gives her son overtime. What is going on in the work world these days? Loyalty and honesty…

OMG....this is not surprising at all. If you have any tax experience, open up your own business and forget them. Go on Glassdoor…

I had expressed concerns to my direct manager about some disrespectful comments that were being made by seniors on our team that were at that point considered harassment. Nothing was done about it, i mentioned it to HR but again nothing was done about it. After this i decided to leave the company, on my current job search all my recruiters are…
