Enough of pity, emotion, negativity, and complaints

Look, as a hiring manager I'm going to share some advice here that will no doubt draw some heated responses. I can handle them. If you decide to get upset or argue the advice, look no further because it's part of the issue. This is feedback to help you not a personal thing.

I am venturing off into different areas of work, but I can’t get very excited about them. I don’t want to waste anyone’s time, or my time, going through the…

Why do jobs make such a big deal about having a GED? I have a strong work ethic and alot of work experience. I hate to lie on an application but it seems to be the only way to get a job is to say you have your GED. I have worked with many co-workers who have a degree but have zero common sense or work ethic. Unless its a specalized field I dont understand why its such a big deal.

I'm going through the same thing, I've got good job experience in all kinds of feld work.i was expelled from school,at my youth…
