So I got laid off it will be a year as of the 25. I have to say I am utterly drained in every sense! Iam mentally emotionally and spiritually drained!! I just don’t know what do I actually dread this life of nothing!!!! It’s so hard to stay positive especially when ur going insane from billls and daily struggle! I think it’s ridiculous what these companies expect from us (qualification wise). Why do I need a bachelor degree to sell a mattress I’m... see more
Personal Traits Sought By Employers
Employers are requiring more of their employees today in a technologically fast paced world. Employees must be able to not only adapt and thrive to an ever-changing world, but also must possess many skills and traits that will showcase and make them stand out from the crowd when job searching.
A resume must not only show potential employers a wide array of skills, work experience, accomplishments, but also... see more
I have applied to 20 places or more in my area. No one has called me. I have went in for one interview and that job was given to someone else. I am to the point where I don't know what to do. I am running out of time to start saving up for my senior expenses. School starts in a month. I feel like giving up.
I am living in ads it seem like I just don't have no life The only days that I have off is Mondays and Saturdays and Sunday and I barely get any rest or get any sleep so I can have off on Saturday and Sunday I should be able to spend time for myself and go do things and go out to eat and sit down that's about it and enjoy myself but you know when you got other things in the way and try to do what you got to do then it just seemed like nothing... see more

Like many others, I can't find a job. The bills are piling up, my husband has dementia and Parkinson's and I'm his sole caretaker. I can't collect unemployment because they consider me a transient worker ( I hopped from one assignment to another). So what's the next step? Do I qualify for State benefits? Where do I find info on that? Who do I ask? I've been sending resumes, filling out job applications,etc. I'm at a loss and I feel like crying... see more
Only jobs I seem to be able to get is part time minimum wage work. Does not seem to matter what my skills are or my education or past successes. Its been that way my entire working like. I can't seem to get anything better. People around me act like I have never worked a day in my life. That the current job is my first job. Low wage work then long periods of unemployment. So tired of it.
I got fired after 5 years with having 5 years of reviews that exceeded expectations just because what I can only assume is the new boss of just 4months decided he didn’t like me. Excuse was my bad attitude. Morgage, kid, wife you know. Dad passed away nephew took own life I feel down and out. What do you do.
What do you do when the only jobs in your area are retail and they won't touch you with a 10 foot pole because you are not an extrovert? Its getting frustrating. Only jobs are the retail jobs and thats it. I don't have an option to move to a different area with other job options. They ether don't hire me because I don't fit their personality test or they look at my education level and say you are to educated or we view you as a threat to our jobs... see more
Tried raising money to start a local small business. No luck. If you start a business where I live you are seen as having a mental health problem or seen as a nut job. Aka no support. It is a common view here that you should be working for someone else even if that someone else won't hire you at all. Thanks to all the work being chain retail and base their hiring on if you have good credit or the so called right personality type via personalty... see more
