I have been looking for months for a job and I was beginning to get discouraged when a job, it's a retail job offered to hire me. I accepted but havent gone for the orientation yet but the date is scheduled. The same day I accepted I received two other interviews one of which I really would like. How would I tell the original job that I no longer want the job? Of course I wont tell them anything if I dont get the job at the place I really want... see more

It's truly amazing that you can have a perfect driving history. Never miss a day at work but fail a single random drug test and basically find yourself unemployable in the trucking industry.
This happened to me. Lost my job. Immediately completed the DOT SAP requirements and passed a second test within 30 days but no one will hire me during to stick company policies.
I'm in northern California. Looks like I will have to change careers just to put... see more

I left my job last month after my GM screwed me out of $1600 in commissions in ONE day. I had some capital saved up to last a few months. I've applied at multiple jobs and had a few interviews that didnt go anywhere. I'm switching career fields, so I understand. I've been in leadership positions in almost EVERY job I've had. So, when I interviewed today for a night super spot (local manufacturing plant that pays decent) I was pretty excited... see more

So I've been at my current job now for 15yrs, I'm trying to get out asap. There is so much going on that I can't be apart of this place anymore it's literally breaking my spirit. So when I do my applications what should I put for reason of leaving. I don't want to bad mouth my company.
Please forgive me if I keep coming off negative but does anyone else feel like they have to keep starting from the bottom? I had two layoffs in the last two years and I don’t want a “foot in the door” job. I have viable, transferable skills, and I keep getting bull recommendations for receptionists or jobs that are totally outside of my skill scope. I have a degree. I have years of experience and ready to keep growing. Is anyone else having/had... see more

Transferable skills are
naturally learned skills that are non-job specific and can be used across any occupation. Many are commonly known as soft skills... see more
Since I was a small child to this very day, I have always wanted to be a pilot.. Have been lucky enough to have used a simulator a couple of times.. I'm at a point in my life where a career change is constantly on my mind. I've already looked into the pilot training programs and it's just way to expensive for me to pay for out of my own pocket. My question is,,, Does Delta or any other company have their own training program to bring in someone... see more
I've been in the Merchant Marine all my working career, now I am at the age where I am having medical issues which prevent me from going to sea. So every time I have an interview and explain my shipboard duties and the responsibilities it seems as if they become intimidated, I also explain that my computer skills are Linux based, so what's the problem.
