What Does Memorial Day Mean To You?

Memorial Day is a day full of remembering our loved ones whom we lost who have served - friends, family, fathers, sons, mothers, daughters, brothers & sisters - and on this day, we honor each and every person who made the ultimate sacrifice.

I asked some of us here at Jobcase to share what Memorial Day means to them. Here’s what they said:

Ashley: “To me, Memorial Day is a day for admiration towards those that made the ultimate sacrifice for…

I got the job......but...

Got offered a position! They just sent me a bunch of forms. One of which is a questionnaire about my medical history. I was just hospitalized for cardiac issues but am on the mends now. I also have to say yes to diabetes. Will this cause me this offer? Please help. I am freaking out!

No need to freak out. Honestly, will your medical issues interfere with the performance of your duties at this job? If not, then…

I have a question.

Is it possible to not get hired by a new job because of a old job? Like can a new job find out what happened at your old job and denied you because of your past job? I only ask because I think that is what's happening with me and my husband.

Is a former employer allowed to give you a bad reference? In a word, YES.

If you have been terminated, faced disciplinary action, or had other problems on past jobs, your former employers CAN reveal that to a company considering you. Contrary to common belief, there ISN'T a law prohibiting this. As long as the information is truthful and factual it can be revealed. While companies may have a policy to only confirm that you were employed, they are not limited to only providing that information.

How do you overcome this…

Your credit history

It is very unfortunate that some jobs require you to have good credit when the job has NOTHING to do with currency, working in a financial institution, Wall Street, etc. I saw a opening and it was a Data Entry position and it was requiring you to Maintain a clean credit history (no past due/collections on credit report). I am working in a data entry position right now and has been since July 2018 and I have the best boss EVER, but the pay isn't…

G W Actually a number of Data Entry jobs involve the handling of customers' financial and other personal information so it IS…

What? A background check includes social media accounts? Why yes, yes it does!

Most prospective employers now include an evaluation of your Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and yes, even your Jobcase posts! All the more reason to watch what you say and share online -- from disparaging remarks about employers to personal health matters to TMI about your love life to Saturday night's party photos. Think only friends will see it? Think again! Here's more: https://www.thebalancecareers.com/social-media-background-checks-
