This is a great incentive for Women Engineers re-entering the workforce but they should also invest in Apprenticeship programs for inner city HS grads interested in Manufacturing/Engineering careers.

Im back!

On 07/15/17, I was hit by a car while walking. God was too GREAT to me! I didn't have any broken bones, but had a fractured pelvis/ lower back. I ended up in a wheelchair for three months! I wasnt eligible for disability because my employer doesn't take out taxes. Thank God for family! My family paid my rent, bills, and bought food for me or brought cooked food to me. I'm ever so thankful! My boss welcomed me back to work! My doctors release date was 10/02/17. My boss saved a case for me and I began work on 10/04/17. God is too AWESOME! In addition, my eldest became engaged in Paris! I'm super happy and excited about life!

Thankfully God is with you. I'm guessing yiou work on a1099 which is why your boss doesn't take it taxes , thou must file them yourself.??? I suggest you meet with a business advisor who will give you the correct advice for paying taxes as well as obtaining much needed insurance. Accidents happen that's why they're called accidents is always best to be prepared for them. Good luck and God bless you!

What can I do??

I haven't had a job since 2003 when I got married and moved to a different city. My husband didn't want me to work at all, Didn't know at the time he was controlling. Anyways this year I got my first car and I told my husband I'm getting a job to help bring in money for the growing piles of bills and getting more groceries then his small budget. So since April I've applied to at east a dozen places that are around my little town and the closest towns. I won't work at fast food, I did that when I was younger and going back as 30 something and dealing with kids won't make my days better. The only call I got was for a cafeteria assistant for the high school but I have to pay for a background check and it's the $70 one. They want me to pay before they even tho about me for the job. One problem I don't have a way to bring in money to even pay for one. It's like why do I have to pay just to have the job, to me it's stupid, I'm there for their company and they should pay not me. When I apply I put down the last jobs I had but there is a big 15 year gap. What can I do to put in the why a big gap.

$70 seems like quite a lot and I worked in schools as an educator. I remember mine was $35. Which state are you living in? In some it is illegal to force you to pay for it before you are hired so do a little research. Also if you feel unsafe at anytime in your home [please reach out for help here] (http://www.thehotline.org/). What type of jobs would you like or want to do? Make a list and then search for them and apply like crazy! Use the 4 easy steps below to find a job opportunity!

1.Click on “Jobs & Companies” at the top of the page 2.Enter a job into the search field that says “Position” 3.Click on the blue button to search for that position in your area 4.Once the list is up, click on “View Job" of any you are interested in and then apply.

Let me know if you need anymore help and we are here for you Lenna!

If my state re-opens I will feel safe to

Carry out my job duties as a dishwasher supporting a restaurant/banquet operation. I work for VFW Post 1215 in Rochester, MN. My exposure can be limited to receiving bus carts delivered by serving staff and food prep pots, pans and utensils delivered by cook staff. I would don face mask to deliver clean items to designated stations throughout the establishment. Any necessary communication with coworkers could be accomplished within social distancing guidelines. I'm optimistic for reopening. #backtowork #paytherent #paybills

how to build up references

I am returning to the employment field. Any constructive criticism on getting references when you have little to no recent work experience.

Maybe you have an old co-worker that you still keep in touch with. Teachers are good too if you recently finished completed a course. If you've been doing any side jobs on a regular bases then use those clients as references.

Lost my leg, can I still do this?

I had an accident at home about two years ago and my left leg was amputated. I healed just fine and I’m doing good now but I want to get back into trucking. Can I do it since I am missing a leg? Anyone know how I can do this? Thank you!

Going Back to Work

Just want to post this so some of you don't give up hope. My last day of work was Jan 31, 2016. I am 60 years old, post divorce and shortly after that my latest significant other passed away of cancer,, then 3 months later my mother passed and my then a few months after that my aunt. I have lost evrything I worked for my entire life-busines-home-contentsyou name it. I am now the matriarch of what's let of a family. I have my own health issues from going through everything and was working temp jobs to keep a roof over my head.

I have applied for more than 800 positions. Now the payoff! Offers coming in --I have accepted a position this morning for a late July start date. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Hang in there and don't give up....what I have learned from everything I have gone through is...you must always charter your own ship. No one else can do it for you. Take charge and keep plugging away till something changes. You can do it!

Good luck to all who are still seardhing.

Thanks Donna. I wish you well in the future and with your health issues. I am so sorry for your loses. I accepted a work from home offer on today. I am still looking for other work as well to supplement that job since the hours will be flexible. I have an interview on next week for a part-time job. You are so right. I am a veteran and learn from being in the Army, you must adapt in order to survive.

Getting back to work after months

So I need advice how to get back to work after months of being sick ..Also this is starting over somewhere new after working at a job for over a decade. How do you not fear it and embrace it when you love to work you just want to be a good fit no matter where you go and not worry about being judged.

I'm a job~seeker as well but, don't want to drive back and forth to work too rather from home. Our car is 14-15 years old & it wouldn't be feasible to have a part-time job that would require me to drive across town just for a few hours a day. To me, that's a waste of fuel and more wear & tear on an aging vehicle. Am I not right about that? I dare say I'm right!!! #HorribleSituation
