This is Career Suicide!
I think I just committed career suicide! I turned down a management promotion last week and starting to think that I may have permanently shut the door on any future career progress at this company. Believe me, I thought long and hard about the offer but realized that I just couldn’t take on the extra responsibilities and hours needed to perform the job. My family life is in shambles! I have a teenage son who’s out of control and quickly sinking into addiction, a young daughter who I barely get to see, and a wife who resents the hell out of me because I’m not pulling my weight at home. Sure, the new job gets me get’s me nice salary bump and prestige at work but on the other end I risk loosing my family. It’s real competitive, lot’s of big egos, so I’m sure the top brass of the company is looking at my decision like a slap in the face. Should I keep an eye out for opportunities at another companies or continue to ride it out at my current job and hope the leadership here has a short memory?

Apprenticeship USA - Get Paid while you Learn!!
There goes another news report about the “skills gap” in the American workforce followed by more talk on the growing cost of a college education. Well, there might be another option........
Did you know that the Federal government allocated 100 million dollars in grants to fund apprenticeship programs throughout the country. The goal to double the number of exisisting apprenticeship programs in order to meet the growing demand for skilled workers in the US, see (http://www.doleta.gov/oa/apprenticeship.cfm).
Apprenticeships have been a proven path to quality employment and the middle class. Programs are being offered within a wide range of industries and careers. Note: This is an employment and career training opportunity for anyone entering the job market, changing careers, or looking to climb the employment ladder.

Rock Bottom has NO Spring!
Thought I finally found water but only ended up with more dirt! I sharing this in hope that people can avoid making the same mistake out of desperation. After months of searching for a job in management and coming close to wiping out my entire savings account I chose to dumbed down my resume and apply for a job way below my qualifications. October marks my 3rd month for a small company overwhelmed with bad management, disgruntled employees, and a poor career outlook. My self confidence, attitude, and hope of getting back on my feet again is fading into darkness and affecting my mental health. I feel stuck! I think I would have been better off waiting a little longer for a more suiting job opportunity. How can I overcome spiritually, mentally, and physically from this rock bottom situation I feel I’m in right now?
Need better employment
Working on a pay every other week and barely making ends meet and no room for advancement and no pay increase foreseen needing a good reliable job in the new river valley of Virginia in the industrial or construction areas please help
same emails over and over
I have talked to a couple of people I worked with who are looking for jobs. They both told me they are getting the same jobs sent to them over and over again even after applying for those jobs it will say new job just posted. Something is not wright. We are qualified for the jobs we are applying for and all we get offers for are jobs that pay $10.00 hr. Then you look at the company profile and they brag how much they made last year. For that money they want you to live there and the list of duties is ridiculous I don't want to take my social security but may have to. I had 11 great reviews in a row with my last greedy company and it got me nowhere 2% raises after killing myself. Every time we got bought it got worse under the new company with record profits. There are way to many scams out there all we want is to work not be robbed out of money we don't have. I just had to vent a little. Louis
