Should I go back to work yes or no ?????
General Motors today announced an innovative pilot internship program aimed at women who are interested in returning to the workforce after a two or more year career break.
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!
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.
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
I am returning to the employment field. Any constructive criticism on getting references when you have little to no recent work experience.
Being a long time out of the work environment for so long, I am finding it hard to find part time work.
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!
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.
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.
