Hello! What do you put on your applications for having left an employer because of a hostile work environment? When a prospective employer sees this, do they believe the applicant? Or are they more apt to think she couldn't take the heat or maybe even SHE was the one with the problem? What do you folks think?

So you are aware, the work environment was one in which the boss used a lot if profanity when on the phone & in speaking with... see more

Hello community, the more time I spend around the topic of ageism the more, frustrated, disheartened and even angered I get. My passion on Jobcase is sharing any discoveries, tips, and strategies I use personally or come across so we can all take individual action toward personal success, however, I can't help but think we have to do something more.

Here is what I know: I know for sure the Jobcase staff is fully aware of this issue and actively... see more

It seems that confidence is a quality many struggle with when interviewing. How do you build up confidence? How do you maintain the comfort that comes with knowing you know all you need to know to ace the interview?

1.) Are you qualified for the position you're interviewing for? Makes sure your education/licensure/experience matches or surpasses what the employer is seeking. Don't come in to the interview unsure of what the jobs actually... see more

Once you've clicked send and your application has been submitted don't forget your next step which is to follow up! Here are some tips to help.

When do I do it?
If you were given an email to contact the recruiter/hiring manager, send a follow-up email 2-3 days after you originally applied. It's likely that they haven’t gotten back to you by then, so this is a fantastic way to remind them of who you are and why you are a benefit to them.

I’ve had 4 job interviews. Been offered and hired 4 times and still haven’t started working. I keep being told how impeccable my resume is but nothing. The first time I was hired on the spot. Was told to get my security license transferred and it was a go. I did this. Paid the $100 and was told the business was sold and they decided to go a different route. The second job decided that they wanted me to work out of town but still waiting after... see more

Its all I can do to keep myself onvtask these days. I'm becoming more and more flustered with my job searching. I have applied for nearly 100 jobs over the last 2 1/2 weeks and haven't received any responses. I'm applying for jobs that I am either qualified for and ones I'm probably over qualified. I have attempted to contact companies directly following submission of my application and the majority direct me back to the online application... see more

I never thought I would experience this but it has become glaringly obvious that this is occurring more often. I have applied for numerous positions inwhich I meet all the criteria with many years of experience in my field. I am either not even being considered for an interview or am being told I am overqualified and/or my salary recommendation are not within their range. I have even low-balled my salary requirements or have said my said salary... see more

I have probably applied at one company for various jobs over the course of a couple of years and just when I really need a job, I have an interview with them on Monday. But darn I had to search everything to find out when I applied there and have not found the job description yet. Fun Monday.
