Job hunt rant

I'm sick of applying for jobs and getting rejection after rejection after rejection. I graduated college back in August 2018. I had my ceremony in December 2018. I applied for so many jobs and internships and even landed some interviews and did not land a single one. It is frustrating. The worst part is, I also applied to some graduate schools (because I thought it might be my experience), but the majority of them rejected me as well. Only 2 grad…

Should I ask for a raise?

I hope this doesn't seem insensitive because I know most of you are searching for work. Believe me, I was in your shoes not so long ago and I remember the agony and heartache but I need opinions. I can't post to Facebook because I broke my own rules about not friending people at work. So...

I will start by saying that I really love the company I work for and my job, though it was not without some problems early on. I was hired for a position…

What Am I Doing Wrong?

I am a seasoned professional. I just received my Master’s. I quit my job in December because my boss was a jerk and treated me like a dog, yet used me to do my work and hers. I have filled out 80-90 job applications, had only 4 interviews and just got a job offer for $30,000. Yes, you read correctly-$30,000. My education cost well over $100,000. Is this all I’m worth. I have cried rivers trying to figure this one out.

I know it's tough, but next time keep working until you find a job worth leaving. If there is OT you might make near 40. Never…

Desperate since I’m a really good worker and fast learner.

Been without a job for about 3-4 months and I’ve never had a complaint before by any of my employers. I’ve unfortunately never got my diploma but that never stops me of succeeding and making my best happen. I have so many references but unfortunately I never get a chance

Hang in there. Do not give up. Sometimes the answer is right in front of us. Keep looking. There are some great suggestions made…

You should check the availability of jobs in that field, in the area in which you live, before making that decision.

What happens when this happens?

Was on the phone with a job recruiter 2 days ago and he went through the normal questions and routine of a phone interview and had asked me when I graduated college. I told him 1999 and he told me I was from the dinosaur age.

Anyone else ever get these kind of remarks? Any feedback or advice would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks.

Then I must have graduated in the Precambrian era, (1979). I used to believe that having a line on my resume summary displaying…

Trying to start my career!

I have been having to stay home with my son, Lane because he's in a neck brace from an auto accident. We have about 3 more weeks until it comes off, but I am actively applying for so many jobs until then. I have my Associates in General Studies and 10+ years in Customer Service experience.

Thank you for sharing this, Adrienne Parker

Hi, I looked at my uploaded resume and it says private so, what I'm wondering is can employers see my Resume if they are looking to hire?

Hi Julie Anderson Where does it say that? When I view your Jobcase profile I can also see your resume : )

Looking for work /new career sux.

I have my own business and want to expand my business and add more value to it by performing other services. But as we all know you have to spend money to make money. Looking for outside work to help fill my availability is the worst. I love what I do, but it's not paying the bills.
I really don't want to go work for a big store w/little pay but I don't have a degree. Furthering my education is possible but Its a catch 22. If I go back to…
