What do you do when a company blackballs you? I haven’t worked in 6 months because they are stopping me when they get a call for reference.
MLK day is coming up soon and it has got me thinking about those who do what is right.
A few weeks ago as I was getting off the train my keys fell out of my pocket and due to the lack of sleep, I didn’t even notice (#momlife).
I would have traveled for an hour and a half without them, rushed over to the car and then realized they were gone. My baby would have been waiting at daycare and I probably would have cried.

Ever struggle to get yourself up and moving on Monday?
Sometimes you just have to tell yourself something positive...
-I am inspiring
-I am unique
-I am important
-I am strong
-I am a shark! : )
Let's give ourselves a boost!
Finish this thought and tell me which word best describes YOU in the comments.
I've currently applied for 355 positions with no interviews. I'm simply running out of time. 355 apps/resumes sent and not a single one. Nothing. I've contacted recruiter after recruiter and still nothing even after nine recruiters...yes, NINE. Rejection after rejection.
Any help whatsoever is greatly appreciated.
I've been applying for a lot of jobs and it seems to me that I have not gotten any interviews
I’ve looked up headhunters, talent management companies and staffing agencies. I went into Philadelphia dressed to impress hoping to talk to someone who could help me find a job that was a perfect match for me and the company. Three agencies looked at me like I was crazy. I said right off the bat that I didn’t have an appointment, but would like to schedule one. I also had copies of my resume. All three told me that they don’t do appointments... see more
I’ve been unemployed for 4 mos and can’t seem to get a job. I’ve gone on countless interviews with no success. I knew around the holidays things would get quiet but it’s middle-Jan and haven’t heard anything. I’m starting to get nervous I won’t find anything. It’s a horrible feeling.
Sitting here reading an article in the AARP Bulletin on, “Ageism.” The article has cleared my mind on why I haven’t being hired after so many interviews. Employers look at your age and think you can’t preform as good as a young person. Think about it, we won’t call out sick from partying all night, we won’t job hop, we are eager to learn and energetic. I have at least 15 more years left on a career and not hiring me is their loss not mines
The truth is I ideally know more than the Managements think.
You go in and fill out the application and answer the work experience.
The time spent with companies and why did you leave.
But no manager will understand, what you could bring to there company.
If all my year's of service don't matter why do they ask?
Older employees bring so much more, but experience can't get you to stay with them.
Listing that experience could help or hinder you.
