Is it really this hard?

I strive to gain a work from home job. I use to write contributor pieces for a blog but when they got shut down I was out of a job and being it only paid little I had to go back to retail. So now that I’m out of retail I am determined to get an at home job as a writer or virtual social media assistant

Yes, you can be hired at 58 (or any age)!...

I thought my fellow Jobcasers would be encouraged reading this story:

A few weeks ago, I received an email as I was found through an online search to see if I would be interested in a newly created position. I did a quick check of the organization, was impressed and replied back.

In turn, I received a reply, had a phone screen, was asked to go in for a first interview, a second interview and then a third interview. I met with 8 people total. A…

I overcame a stressful time at work when

I was the only server on the floor, and the late lunch rush happened. I had the whole dining room, and the bartender had her whole bar completely full both of us in our sections. During that time, I realized not to lose focus and don't panic. And I got through that Rush without one guest complaint. I had 12 or 13 Tables by myself. And they weren't small tables either, there were a couple of two tops, mainly Four Tops and 5 tops and a few 6

True but that's not always at hand

Frustration x 100000000

Random question for anyone here... has anyone had success with recruiters? Specifically finding recruiters to work with and then landing a job via a recruiter? I seem to be running into trouble finding a good recruiter. I am in the marketing field with specific interest in writing -- so business communications, copy writing, copy editing etc. Any leads anyone?

I've never used a recruiter personally but I have heard mixed reviews from people who have.

There is the Age Discrimination Employment Act that protects applicants 40 years and older from hiring decisions based solely on…

Health issues are catching up to me too. 18 month ago was diagnoses with diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol. 10 months…

Good perspective Robert. I'm so sorry you're going through all of this, but the sun is definitely getting ready to shine on you!
