I have been a stay at home mother and wife. I haven't worked in 10 yrs. Now I find myself at the beginning of a divorce and need to find a job. I have 2 school age children and need to be home for them when they get out of school. I would love a job that you can do from home. I need help! I have no resume. If they could just look at all the things I've done for my family I would be qualified for a good job. Alas they dont do that so I'm stuck…

Divorce is not an option..

Been looking for work over a month now. Getting discouraged: two interviews, dozen times submitted my resume, still not hired.. It isn't for lack of trying...honestly thinking of taking a break. I'm not sure I am going about this right.

I was fired from my job last September. I loved this job. I didn’t do the things that they fired me for. But needless to say I was fired anyway. I loved that job. It was my dream job. Now I feel as though I will never get the chance to do what I love again. I’ve had interviews but wasn’t called back I know that me being fired was the reason. Can someone help me!!!

First of, never put on your application that you was fired, just say, you was let go and the part that says...reason, just say…

Help me understand

I have been placing sometime up to 10 online applications a day, and quite often I get an email that apologizes but informs me that they will not be moving forward with my “candidacy”. This floors me, because between this email and the actual application there is no contact. What are they basing the decision on? What is disqualifying me?

I got FIRED !!!

I got fired bcuss ive got diagnosed with lung issues , I have difficulty breathing so had to be calling out I have all the paper work and that job still decided to FIRE me. They didn't care about my health they just said attendance issues. They were more worried about their product than my f*** health and it's real sad I've worked for them for almost 2yrs. But God will heal me and I will find another job that will understand my conditions.

Yes, you can be hired at 58 (or any age)!...

I thought my fellow Jobcasers would be encouraged reading this story:

A few weeks ago, I received an email as I was found through an online search to see if I would be interested in a newly created position. I did a quick check of the organization, was impressed and replied back.

In turn, I received a reply, had a phone screen, was asked to go in for a first interview, a second interview and then a third interview. I met with 8 people total. A…

I wanted to stay on because I want to retire, if I start over again, I would have to wait to retire. A fellow cashier worked unlit she didn’t. She was close to 80 years or already was. She could have retired but pushed further further because she mortgage to…
