When you’re out there in today’s market trying to find employment you’re oblivious to others looking right along side of you. It can be intense, frustrating and depressing. Especially when you have a family to care for and bills to pay.

Thanks to all of you for the support I get from your posts. I am feeling very discouraged in my job search. Every positive post and every post that addresses an issue that I too am experiencing gives me the courage to keep trying.

I had posted their plight on Jobcase and with all the suggestions, advise and well wishes including valuable help on finding veterinary care for Alex, here is everything that has happened in the last month.
A wonderful veterinarian, who offered to provide all of her... see more
Part of the Jobcase story is a David-versus-Goliath story where a bunch of really well-meaning, hard-working and good-hearted Quants, Engineers and business people are building this platform with a view that is more about 21st-century union than simply new tech company.
