What is going on?

I have been reading this forum lately and know I am not alone. I'm not the only one at wits end, and I am not the only one frustrated. I bet I have applied to over 100 jobs in the last 6 months and can't even get a call back.

Many of you are thinking He needs to revise his resume. Well, I've done that many times. I have had two professionals write one, I have tailored their products, I submit specific resumes tailored to the exact job. I…

Two truckers share their stories

Meet Nailah and Martin!

Two different people who truly love what they do, which is driving a truck.

Sometimes in life, you need to think outside of the box.

When a friend suggested that Nailah attend truck driving school she stood in front of her in high heels and a dress and thought NO way was this for her. Today she happily says, “I am in a place where I don’t have to want for anything. I am happy. I don’t have bill collectors calling me…

Puzzled and Dismayed

I'm working for a company that constantly points out any flaws and is trying to push me away from my job. I'm stuck between deciding on if I should resign from the position and put in my two weeks notice before they decide that they want to fire me from the job altogether. I am hurt because I have put so much of my time and energy in to being the best kind of employee for the company and knowing that they have other motives. Please give me some…

How to start a business

I have always enjoyed baking and cake decorating. Since 2014 I've made this my side hustle but I would like to get the ball rolling for this to be my main source of income.

I am losing my commitment

It's been 3 months since my back up took a leave of absence to pursue her license and they informed that they will hire for an intern to take over her job, since then my supervisor had started to see my mistakes, petty mistakes that make him yell in front of everyone. I never had any escalation that puts the team in a bad situation. Everyday i feel like i never did something right for him. I know he doesn't mean it and that's his way of educating…

What I loved working at #VulcanMaterialsCompany

The camaraderie, the long term employees who actually ran the plant without the accolades, who happily taught new employees the procedures and policies each individual position held, while lower management took all the credit. The middle management of a fortune 500 company who could not meet quotas or oversee quality control should ask himself why. A college degree and looking at pretty pictures does not over ride the experience of 20 years of…

Discouraged

I have been looking for work for 3 months. I am so frustrated and feel very discouraged. I was supposed to hear today about whether or not I got a job with a very wonderful company. I know the day is not over but I still haven’t received a call. I’m scared. I have to find something. I’m a single mom and I have zero help from his father. I do everything on my own. I feel down and low today. Any advice? I feel so alone

Love have you found a position?

Common Pitfalls in the Search for our Next Employment Opportunity

Hey Jobcasers,

Let's talk about the common pitfalls we face in our search for our next employment opportunity.

First, let's talk about the hiring process and how it works.

  1. We submit job applications/resumes/cover letters (usually online).

  2. We interview and hope for an offer or an invitation to the next interview; this repeats until we get an offer or aren't moved along to the next step of the hiring process.

  3. We negotiate and either accept or…

What a great post Gage Cherry ! Your insights are always so interesting to read! Thank you for sharing these tips : )
