Personal Traits Sought By Employers
Employers are requiring more of their employees today in a technologically fast paced world. Employees must be able to not only adapt and thrive to an ever-changing world, but also must possess many skills and traits that will showcase and make them stand out from the crowd when job searching.
A resume must not only show potential employers a wide array of skills, work experience, accomplishments, but also... see more
Never move to Kitsap County in Washington state. Its a economic dead end. No work other then low wage work. Its anti small business so starting a business in this place will send you to the poor house. Fighting the local regulators. Cost of living is to high so even if you get work. You are not getting very far head of the game. Then you could get trapped like myself and are unable to leave. Thanks to low wage work and no way to save up to move... see more
My area is economically a low man on the totem pole. Meaning we have about 10 to 15 percent unemployment most of the time. Regardless if the economy is doing well or not. What that means for me is I can't get a decent job that would allow me to save up to move to a better work area. Where there are jobs. What jobs there are here where I live are mostly low wage retail work. So that leaves me trapped in a area I loath to death and have no way out... see more
I wish I knew what it was like to make more then minimum wage. All I get is low wage work. People wonder why I hate having Autism. Why I loath all the debt I got into in college. It never ends. All jobs I apply for unless its a low wage job with no other applicants. I never get the position. It matters not what the job is. Or people want me to work for free.
Like many others, I can't find a job. The bills are piling up, my husband has dementia and Parkinson's and I'm his sole caretaker. I can't collect unemployment because they consider me a transient worker ( I hopped from one assignment to another). So what's the next step? Do I qualify for State benefits? Where do I find info on that? Who do I ask? I've been sending resumes, filling out job applications,etc. I'm at a loss and I feel like crying... see more
What do you do when the only jobs in your area are retail and they won't touch you with a 10 foot pole because you are not an extrovert? Its getting frustrating. Only jobs are the retail jobs and thats it. I don't have an option to move to a different area with other job options. They ether don't hire me because I don't fit their personality test or they look at my education level and say you are to educated or we view you as a threat to our jobs... see more
Tried raising money to start a local small business. No luck. If you start a business where I live you are seen as having a mental health problem or seen as a nut job. Aka no support. It is a common view here that you should be working for someone else even if that someone else won't hire you at all. Thanks to all the work being chain retail and base their hiring on if you have good credit or the so called right personality type via personalty... see more
I am stuck in my area because of family obligations. My area is all retail, I have given my all to try to get hired by one of them. No go. Over educated for my local job market. Don't fit the personality type they are looking for ether.
