Worried

I got a letter in the mail saying my social security was going to be garnished due to student loans. I had went to school years ago and wasn't working at the time. I didn't realize I had taken a class three different times and failed each time, even though I used a tutor for help I still couldn't grasp the concept of the terms so I was dismissed.

What’s With Recruiters Anyway?

This year my uncle, a CAD Design Drafter makes what should be his 40th year anniversary in the drafting field.

To ALL you at JOBCASE You taught me and continue to remind me:NEVER GIVE UP and KOKO (Keep On Keeping On)

Good Morning, Y’all! I could not be more excited to find in my emails this morning, my official “pass” to my new company! Only, in my life today, can I say I’m not afraid of background checks. Having this confidence has taken lots of hard work and a whole lot of, one days at a time. The company even moved up my hire date to start on 4/1/19.

In Sept 2018, I was let go, first time ever, because I would not do things per management way, which would have meant submitting false documents with deceptive intentions about the state of a government network.
