Gratitude: The Trait That Defines Perspective

Hey Jobcasers,

Today I'd like to talk about something that seems a little difficult in our search for the next best employment opportunity: Gratitude.

Gratitude is perhaps one of the most difficult things to muster up during a rigorous and harrowing experience such as unemployment, homelessness, and similar events, but I would argue that it is perhaps the most important thing to muster up--more than hope, more than tenacity, more than even…

Thank you. I know all to well about bare cupboards, empty refrigerator, no electricity, no gas to get anywhere and when I do have…

My tips for getting customers to open up

I’ve worked at Macy’s for over a year now and I’ve learned a few things… always approach them with a smile, and never when they have anything but a piece of merchandise in their hands. If they’re on the phone, or looking at a tablet,or something else, leave them alone til they are looking at a shirt or something. Then, ask a ton of questions and smile and nod to all their answers. If you’re checking them out, mention the credit card to save them…

I'm telling you the truth...(Only if you want to win.)

THOUGHT: Always let experience be one of your best teachers in life, because it can minimize your efforts of being wrong!


1) Set aside time in the morning to search for jobs via your computer. Limit your search to NTE 1.5 hours. (If you exceed 1 1/2 hours your mental compass will lose focus.
2) Be specific about job titles which are relevant…

I put an application at Albertsons. They called me two days later and said they are hiring me. I went in today and they gave me a new employee orientation kit and a cap and aprons. Introduced me to other employees..but doing a background check. And gave me rate of pay. Does this mean I'm hired? I'm so stressed because I need this job.

I would reach out to the hiring manager and try to confirm this with them Bruce Webb . If you have not received and signed an…

My Son is what I was supposed to be.

I have been giving some good employment advice to people that I don't know. The reason being is because I messed up so much that in the course of all of that I learned a lot. I have given my son some of the the very expensive knowledge I earned and some of you all. He is now the talk of his company. I would hope for him and you all that you cherish your jobs and I don't challenge things that don't need to be challenged and the wisdom to know the…

This has been happening numerous of times lately to me. I get an excellent job offer only to lose it after they run a background check. I been working as a server for half a decade and I'm burned out on it but it seems like all that is offered to me is server jobs. I'm college educated in both business and psychology, excellent communicator, manager skills, sales experience, receptionist skills and excel at customer service. Is there anything I…


I did a quick search and found this:
