Let the people in your circle know you are looking for work and ask if they have leads or can introduce you to business owners or hiring managers.

It IS who you know -- and you'd be surprised at the introductions and referrals you can find just by asking. Who should you…

DOES COMPANY CULTURE MATTER?

When Choosing An Employer, Culture Matters

When determining whether an employer is the right fit for you, it is important to find out about its culture. Companies are as different as the people who work there and run the business. For better and worse, culture and leadership are inextricably linked. Founders and influential leaders often set the initial culture of their organizations. Over time an organization’s leaders can also shape culture…

Ageism as a barrier to high-paying work

Hi all, my name is Allana Akhtar and I'm a reporter at Business Insider.

I just published a report on how ageism, not a skills gap, is the biggest barrier to keeping older adults from high-paying work. (& I even got some help from Jobcase CEO Fred Goff).

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Here's the story: https://www.businessinsider.com/retraining-doesnt-help-older-workers-find-jobs-because-of-ageism-2019-5

Get it in Writing.

You got the job offer, you are so excited. But did you really get the job offer?

Companies that are on the up and up will always, not sometimes but always do the following:
Send you a job offer, and what is included in that letter is Critical;. Keep that letter, make copies. Hopefully, you will not need to point anything out that is not being done.

Job offers can vary but they should at a minimum have the following information.

I motivated a coworker one time by letting him all is not waste there more chance to progress in live.

I motivated a coworker who thinks all is gone and there is no hope he and his family.
I told him life is all about ups and down but you must push and determined to move forward,
the past is gone and he needs to move on

It was very kind of you to do that for your coworker! I hope he took some inspiration from your words and used that to think more…

Life happens

I lost a really great job, lay offs. I could be upset and complain I sent off 100’s of resumes but I won’t. Instead I’ll focus on all the good things to come and know that if I have the faith the size of a mustard seed, I will be ok. I believe I will be fine. You should do the same. Don’t give up. Do the work, take the time to redo your resume. It will happen. I believe that , you should too.

Yup life happens, and that's why we build an emergency fund. We went over 2 years being unemployed during the recession, but have…

"STRAIGHT OFF THE CUFF" [IBYC]

Let me tell you something, that perhaps, some people don't have the courage to tell you because they are bound by internals and external factors which govern their lives. (I truly understand how some things work.)

That customary sour cheese that someone was feeding you yesterday, that bad news and ill treatment you received, injustice and the group clicks that you experience yesterday, the wrong treatment you had to endure, the pay raise that…
