Are my fears valid?

So, I was requested to interview for a customer service vacancy, which will allow me to work remotely. I would love to be able to work primarily from home, so of course I I was thinking, this is the opportunity that I've been hoping will come my way. The interview wasn't face to face nor over the phone. Rather, the interviewer conducted it all through Google Hang Outs. I found it a bit strange. Nevertheless she hired me and required all my…

I have never heard of an interview being conducted in that manner. Giving your personal information with no option to protect it…

Took a pay-cut and finally a job offer!!

**UPDATE-SEE UPDATE BELOW **

After a month of applications the last 2 weeks have been wonderful. I’ve had several interviews, 3 more scheduled and so far 1 job offer. I have feeling I may be offered 1 or 2 more.

I’ve had to be submitted to jobs paying $12,000-$16,000/yr less than what I’ve made in the past. That’s $6-$8/hr less! I guess that’s to be expected after being unemployed for over a year.

What are your thoughts on taking a pay cut…

Sometimes you do what you have to do. As long as you can still pay your bills, take the job.

Getting this off my chest!! Stressing!!

I just need to get this off my chest!! I have a felony and a misdemeanor on my record. They are 9 years old, DUI and Drug Possession ( pain killers).
I just got a offer on a good job, I told them about my background before they offered me the job. I always tell future employers about my background at the interview. I would rather tell them face to face so I can explain. Then if they aren't gonna hire me I will already know.
I don't have to play…

Im glad you were honest up front and applaud you for it. Your past is behind you and focus on fixing that typo. Perhaps its a…

I got the job......but...

Got offered a position! They just sent me a bunch of forms. One of which is a questionnaire about my medical history. I was just hospitalized for cardiac issues but am on the mends now. I also have to say yes to diabetes. Will this cause me this offer? Please help. I am freaking out!

Better job offer,more money.... Or stay where i am?

I recently started a new job in my field which is cooking. Well a few week's ago a friend asked if I'd come in and help her out on my day's off because they needed another cook. I worked 1 day and management approaches me & offers me $4.00 more an hour to quit my job. I though about it & had decided that I was going to take it,I mean who could pass up an extra 4.00 an hour? So I gave my notice and explained why I was leaving hoping that they'd…

What’s really going on?

Why can’t I find a job? What’s happening? I’ve had at least 4 interviews with one company and 3 with another, but no job offer. Why? I was so close the manager went of the job schedule, I was sure this was it? Then, nothing ... just nothing! I can’t take it anymore!

Confused

I dont get it. I got rejected again. They loved my passion but no offer. What am I doing wrong?
I am acclaimed in my field. Just turned 50. 2 degrees. Working on my Masters. All my roles were progressively upward. Am I being blackballed? I remain prayerful.

Don't give up hope,Mel. Check in with your campus career coordinator to see if they can help you get some leads. Your still in…

CAN AN OFFER BE RESCINDED?

Hello my fellow Jobcasers

I saw a post about an offer being retracted. I did some research and I saw that link. I decided to post it because that can happen to any of us. Information helps with Prevention.
