Like many, I have been in the unfortunate situation of abruptly finding myself without a job. I don't mind telling you, in the moment, it's a completely demoralizing experience. When this did happen to me, there were a few steps I took so I could move forward productively:

1) I was gracious -- I thanked my employer for the opportunity and offered to expedited any needed transition. Why was I so nice? I don't believe in burning bridges... see more

I was unemployed for about 5 months in 2015 and very unsure about what I wanted to do next. I was spending 50-60 hours a week researching and applying to jobs. It took a while but I found a great job and it put my career on a new trajectory.

Reflecting on Dr. King today, I am hopeful that he would be proud of the support people give each other here on Jobcase.com. Three Dr. King quotes that I think really sum up what I love about this community:

Hard work: “No work is insignificant. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.”
Stronger Together: We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat... see more

These quotes are incredibly inspiring and deserve more attention! Dr. King was a wise man, indeed. We should take... see more

Had a bit of a set back yesterday. I somehow stumbled backwards while moping my vanity area. That metal piece that separates the carpet from the tile got me good. Now I have this huge hole in the heel of my foot. Yesterday I was feeling some type of way and was like why my foot again. 2 years ago I found out I had Arthritis in that same foot. It hurts so bad when inflammation kicks in but I'm determined,nothing like this is going to win,I'm the... see more

We then leverage this to amplify your voice, put data behind it, and bang on C-level doors to reclaim capitalism to work for all. We got your back.

These are all skills that I mastered as a worker in the #FoodServices industry throughout the years. Consequently, these are also skills that I use in my current job every single day!
