Soooo frustrated!

My husband and I have been out of work since September. We both have gone on interview after interview and still nothing. Do recruiters get that the perfect person they are looking for already has a job. Why won't anyone give us a chance. We both are in tears right now as he just got turned down again. I work in healthcare and he works in sales and the hospitality industry. This is just too much to take at this point. He has three weeks…

It’s a cruel world out there! I wish people would get back to looking out for, and helping each other out. With the way our…

I feel so blessed

Finally found a job! Don’t give up, there are jobs out there. This unemployment experience has taught me one thing. Even though I’ve paid into unemployment for over 40 years, I was unable to receive my benefit! Unemployment is a total joke! Thank The Lord I was able to find work within one month of losing my job( otherwise I wouldn’t even be able to feed my family, and unemployment does not care.

God bless you on your new job I'm very happy for you

1 - Apply for unemployment

It took a little over three months

I finally landed a job. I applied to a minimum of 5 jobs each week. I had many interviews and most of those turned out very well but I didn't get the job.

I am an Application Security Engineer with over 10 years of static code analysis experience and over 20 years of software development experience. You would think it would have been easy to find a job. It wasn't.

The problem is my age and my high level of experience can be a turn off. I got to…

Wow Eduardo that is awesome what kind of work are you doing now is it the same as when you had ten years experience?

I need help, please.

Like many others, I can't find a job. The bills are piling up, my husband has dementia and Parkinson's and I'm his sole caretaker. I can't collect unemployment because they consider me a transient worker ( I hopped from one assignment to another). So what's the next step? Do I qualify for State benefits? Where do I find info on that? Who do I ask? I've been sending resumes, filling out job applications,etc. I'm at a loss and I feel like crying…

Terminated After Two Months

Hiii all,

I was laid off from my job and collected unemployment benefits . I took another position because my unemployment benefits was ending soon. Well, I was terminated from that position after two months for not meeting productivity. I filed for unemployment. Do you all think I will be approved for unemployment? I think I was fired because my manager and others didn’t like me but I’m more concerned on being approved because I have bills to…

I'm not sure you've been employed long enough to be eligible for unemployment benefits. Best of luck to you! Stay positive.
