I’m really feeling down due to job searching and searching for something that I would like to do and when I do find something that I would be interested in, they “prefer a bachelor’s degree”. I can’t afford to go to school to get a bachelor’s degree and all the jobs that require or prefer some sort of degree, I could just be trained on and do a good job at it. It’s ridiculous and frustrating!
I recently asked six different recruiters and hiring managers to tell me what the biggest mistake applicants make during the interview process is. If they repeated a mistake given by the preceding recruiter/hiring manager, I asked them to give me a different mistake.
Here are the six mistakes that could end an interview, or lead an applicant to not get a second interview/job offer...
1) Being Unaware That it's an Interview, Not an Interrogation... see more
Should I stay or leave?? I have been working for D D’s Discounts for over 5 years now part-time Associate. I was wondering should I look for a better paying part-time job with Medical? I’m not sure I’m capable to handle office work?! I might try being a Customer Service Representative? But I feel I get steady work each week and my employees are good. Especially it’s the holidays coming up and I don’t want to look for another job to soon... see more
So I’ve been working for this little call center setting appointments. At first I was so excited because I haven’t worked in years! Like many years... but now that some time has passed and I’ve gotten a few paychecks I’m finding that there’s little that excites me at all with working there. Their thing is hourly vs. commission... but when I am making those appointments they’re not being paid for! So my paycheck was a little over $100.00 for one... see more

I have worked in retail for over 13 years. I am looking to get out in more of a office situation. Anyone hiring? Or have any suggestions.
I have worked at my retail job for 18yrs. as they raise the starting wage they do not adjust an increase in our wages. I was told they only invest in new talent, not the tenor staff. They do expect us to train all the new hires and keep our mouths shut. I have witnessed the younger management set up the older managers and then write them up for doing what they told them to do. They keep this up till they retire or quit. They want us all gone so... see more
jump ship and walk away from that frustrating, aggravating boss, consider this: employed applicants for new jobs are more than TWICE as likely to get calls for interviews and THREE TIMES more likely to receive job offers than unemployed applicants!
Our house payments are lapsing and I am so scared. My wife is ill and can no longer work. We aren’t making enough to get by with the job I have now and I think we will lose our home in the next 4 months if I don’t act fast. I know it sounds nuts, but what about truck driving? I heard you can make money quickly and we really need it. Can someone please help us? What do I have to do? I’m so lost.
