Do not burn Bridges

When you do good, Good comes right back at you. People always remember what you said. whether good or bad but in the back of their mind, there are seeds planted of what's been done. I am not necessarily speaking of materialistic things but the little things day by day. It goes a long way! Try not to burn that bridge, you may never know what the future holds.

Background

I have worked for the same company for 5 years and I just got laid off due to down sizing. I now am looking for a new hub. I was in Human Resources and Recruiting. My problem is when I got my old job I had nothing on my background but since then something is on there from a old conviction back in 2014, I owned a home and my son lived in it he was dealing drugs out of it, when police came I was the only one there and I consented to a search not…

In a rut

I have been in a long bad streak of jobs, I recently was let go and a job I had for 8 years because the owner was paranoid and thought people were trying to steal his recipes. When I confronted him about it he got agitated and let me go. Ever since I’ve had a hard time finding a job where they don’t try to work you to death for nothing , or don’t challenge me. And I feel afraid to try something else all I’ve done is cook.

You should look into college, get more training to start a new career. You look like a young man you can start over with the…

So Stressed out

I was with the same employer for 13 years and I was laid off on 3/18/19 and have been having a hard time finding employment. I am so stressed! My last position I was a supervisor but I am having to resort to applying for customer service positions as it seems like every job I apply for I either get a thank you but we’ve went with other candidates or I get the interview but never here back from anyone. I never thought I’d be in this position or…

DESPERATE

I'm down to my last 10 dollars. Got laid off in May. Unemployment hasn't compensated me. No one will hire me because of my age. Can't fully retire for another year. I have to move out of where I am by October. I just keep praying for a miracle. I'm determined to believe that God is going to make this situation better.
Does anyone know of any jobs where I don't have to be on my feet all day? I've been an administrative assistant my whole life…

I hope you found a job by now. But, if you haven't, try this: www.inolachamber.com. Also, look at this: https://tulsa.craigslist.o

Got fired before I even started

I had a job, but decided to apply for an Administrative position with Dr. Savastano because it paid better and was closer to home, I gave the job I had my two weeks notice. Dr. Savastano had asked me to upgrade my car insurance (have never been asked to do this from other jobs) when I called my insurance to make the change, it was going to be $200 more which put me out of my budget. I explained to Dr. Savastano that the change in my insurance…

Scarred and Scared

After 20+ years of service my job was outsourced a few months ago. I'm in my early 50s and new to how job searches are conducted.

I had an informal interview with a great company, but no second interview or follow up email on the position. I did follow up with a thank you email, again no response. I found out the position was filled via a LinkedIn connection so, I moved on.

My next interview was rescheduled minutes before I was headed out the…

not rehired to a job I was laid off from

I was laid off from a Job in March 2018 they recently posted the job again hiring 10 people I reapplied and was granted an interview but two weeks later I was told that they had found better qualified candidates! for a Job I literally did just over 1 year ago and for 3 years. I'm thinking there is more to it than that and I'm tempted to reach out to my old boss and ask him what happened, but I'm thinking it would probably be pointless. I found a…

I know how you feel. It happened to me.
