Stressed

I have applied for every job that I know of in Dickson and within a 25 mile radius. If I don't get a job soon I will have to make the decision to relocate to a better area where there are more jobs available. I don't know what else to do. I net work with goodwill and I am online everyday checking out any jobs I may have passed up. I spend 4-6 hours sometimes more a day doing applications and assessments.

Hi Christina: Thanks for posting to Jobcase! It sounds like you're laying the foundation for a strong job search, so fortunately, landing interviews may be as simple as just calling employers to follow up on your application. When calling, ask to speak to the person in charge of hiring for that particular role. A lot of Jobcasers have used this advice before and it's worked - it helps you stand out from a crowd of online applications.

Desperately need help/

I am pregnant and currently working part time somewhere I really enjoy, however I am at the end of my pregnancy and I am running out of time and money. I've been looking for work at home opportunities for over a year now and nothing. All I need is a part-time gig, but I will put my all into it, baby and all. I am having some serious issues now and the extra income is needed sorely. I have a Bachelors of Science in Social Science. I was in the military. currently work for a non profit, and excellent sales experience. Please, I have 3 other children. I need help...sorry..

The Daily Commute is Killing Me!

I commute 55 miles to and from work everyday which translates to about 75 mins each way; on a good day. Over the years, the roughly two plus hour commute and time spent in a sedentary position in front of the computer all day at work have taken tremendous toll on my health and home life. I’ve put on 20lbs, develop hypertension symptoms, and depression. I’ve tied every kind of diet and exercise plan available to help me get my weight under control with no success. My last visit to the doctor ended with a new prescription med to control my cholesterol. I’m always too exhausted or stressed to play with my 2 year old daughter when I get home and on the weekends.

Wow I am sorry you are experiencing this. The commute aloe is a lot of stress as you are alone in your thoughts. Is there anyone you could carpool with so you would have conversation? So many others have offered great suggestions for your physical and mental health. These threads are great for all of us. I didn't want to drive so was lucky to find a job nearby. I walked one mile to and from work and felt physically healthy. But my job was a stress and I was fired a month ago. You post has motivated me to walk before/after applying for jobs. Thank you for your post.

Similar story here. Long commute, overtime and poor sleep or the lack thereof made life hell. Til i found meditation. Sitting still 10 min before i start my day has turned my life around in 6 months time. I'm way more productive, off meds, focus is sharp and even with 5 hours of sleep a night, im way more energized. To top it all off, i quit smoking after several attempts with latches, gums, etc...it's been 5 years since. And to think it didnt cost me anything but 10 consistent minutes a day.

I'm in trouble. Help!!!!

After searching for a job for months, I gave up and took a job outside of my field. Surprisingly, I actually like working in manufacturing, but one of my coworkers loves to start trouble. He has been there since he was 20 years old and whenever threatened by someone's work ethic. He will cause chaos. Sadly, they will believe him over everyone. What's bad is I have become his main target due to our management showing recognition for my work ethic. I'm afraid I am back into corner and I have no defense! Help!

I know all too well your dilemma!!! I am one of the best offset pressman in the southeast and have run into that exact situation several times. Even when I have changed career paths and did something else. Other people have always moved ahead off my sweat and it's been frustrating. I'm looking for a job in management now myself but I'm afraid that I've somehow been blackballed in my area . Sometimes , being the smartest person in the room and no one will listen to you can drive you nuts over time. I can tell you stories.....but for now I'll keep my mouth shut

Then go to the person at the top with with truth and the undenied material that he cannot go back on. Also what really works is an after thought "you can knock him out" Just quick and easy..............steven

A-social...B+ student

Set goals at 8 years old. Still pursuing. Boss man says relax. Work-a-holics not so anonymous. Just me. What do I do now? NO moon and New York City. Start with the pressures I guess.

SIGH

I have an interview coming this Wednesday for a job. I am a 25 year old kid who is currently living with his parents. I have to tell you It is getting very frustrating living with them. Constantly asking me the same questions "what do you want to do with your life" "always stating that I am lazy or that I should be applying for a career instead of a job, your waisting your time, ect like they think I like staying home and not do anything with my life.

My parents just don't get that it is very hard find work for anybody today. And I've applied to over 50+ places. But they choose to ignore that. I've told them that my career will be in the AirForce but I have to

-lose 20 pounds to meet the physical requirements

-catch up on my math and science skills so that I may get a good job at the AirForce.

-have something recent on my resume to present to the AirForce.

Sigh. I don't know what I am going to do if I don't get this job. The interview will be using something called the STAR method.

Sorry for the rant.

Dealing with family pressure when your trying to get started and figure out a plan for your life is hard. I get it.. I really do but as I read your message I couldn’t help thinking of the alternative. Having parents that don’t give a damn what your do or when you do it. Parent who would never keep you in the house regardless if you have a job or not. Eduardo, it sounds like you parents care a great deal for you and they are concerned about your future. Yes, this is a different time. Making a life is 3 times harder than before so as caring parents they have every right to be concerned. If you think the solution is a job right now then good luck with your interview this week. I hope you get the job offer but, if not, then stay encouraged because this is a good time for job hunting as companies get ready for the holiday season. Follow your dreams but be mindful that your parents could be just looking out for your best interested in the only manner they now how. Be Patent.

WTF!!

I’m pregnant and working as an associate retail manager. Everyone’s been awesome about my pregnancy, except for a certain group of people - CUSTOMERS. I wish I was lying about how many customers have put their hands on my stomach as soon as they realize I’m pregnant. I know they’re not trying to be creepy, but it’s rude and invasive and it pisses me off. How do I deal? I feel like I don’t have anyone to talk to about this because I’m the manager!

No Marleen, I think you need to be more obvious about it. Tell the customer that you appreciate their excitement but you prefer not to be touched. I don’t see why we need to be worried about other people’s feelings when THEY’RE the ones touching YOU.

I can see both sides of it. On the one hand, people are just programmed to touch pregnant women’s bellies to see if they can feel the baby. On the other hand, that baby is still in your belly, so they’re actually touching you. If it makes you uncomfortable, speak up.

I have had it.....

I know I need work, but it seems like I have to get work that I hate with a passion in order to survive. I am a broken human being, but I do have a decent work ethic. I feel like I am being judged for having so many jobs in a short time period, along with being judged on my appearance (I have a buzz cut, because it saves a lot of money). I have been told that past interviewers like a lot of my answers, but I don't believe them since I am still trying to find work. I don't have the mentality to join any military service and my Bachelor's degree in Business Administration is useless. I lost the love of my life for stupid mistakes of not being there for her and her daughter. I honestly feel I am being judged for typing that as everyone nowadays assumes the worst about people they meet. I know perseverance is key and I have been told I have that, but it has gotten me nowhere. I have learned that I have made the poorest choices in my life. Freewill is the worst gift ever. I don't think I can recover from my consequences that I am dealing with. Life would be easier if I was a robot.

Hi Tim: I'm really sorry you've been going through some tough times at the moment. But with that being said, I think you're being really hard on yourself to the point where it's preventing you from moving forward with your life. On the job front, it's tough to take on work that we know we're going to hate, but sometimes it's better to do that simply as a mode of survival. Just make sure you have an exit plan in place so you don't end up staying there for longer than you want to. Plus, it's always easier to look for the job you actually want when you're getting a steady paycheck. And remember, everyone makes poor choices - it's what you do afterwards that measures who you are as a person. Lick your wounds, but come back up and fight on. You'll eventually get to a place where you'll look back on this period in your life and barely remember it, I promise.
