I am in trouble!!

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.

Never Lie In an Job Interview

As we all know, job interviews are intensely stressful occasions. If you REALLY want the job, the stakes are also incredibly high and you might feel a slight mistake could cost you the chance at landing the job. Given the pressure, some people are tempted to fudge their accomplishments and background a bit. They figure if adding a few years of experience that they'll triumph over other candidates, and what the interviewer doesn't know won't hurt…

I am done!

I got a job doing something i cannot stand, out of pure desperation... Now i want to up and quit. My last job was a storage facility, so office work, and some outdoor stuff. I worked alone 99.8 percent of the time and loved it! Now, im dealing with coworkers and cannot stand being micromanaged! I used to be able to do whatever i wanted because i was the boss... I cannot take this anymore at all, and no storage places where i live are hiring…

There is a huge storage facility being built right now in Taunton, MA. At the corner of Harts Four Corners and County Street.

Lost

I need advice or just someone to listen please. I've been at my current company going on three years come July and I've been in my current position for two years. I believe I am good at what I do and that I am a good employee. My only thing is that the past two years I've gotten in total a $0.24 raise and people have moved up past me and I feel like I've been forgotten or overlooked. I've also moved from store to store to store to help out with…

That's a great question Sherri. At the end of the day, you need to be your own advocate.

I Need Some Advice

I am 21 years old and dropped out of college last November. Due to a lack of finances, problems at home, and realizing the degree I was pursuing was impractical (think of it as the perfect degree for an sjw), I decided to dropout and move back in with my mother in order to find work, save money, hopefully rent a small studio apartment, and then focus on earning a worthwhile degree. Of course, life isn't that simple and the biggest issue I am…

The Career Shift Myth

So, after months of trying to get an entry-level job in a different industry, reaching out to different companies, writing personalized cover letters, interviewing and yet, always ending up not getting the job, I felt compelled to write about it. I have over a decade of experience in the hospitality industry, and I was also in a managerial role for the past three years. I have many skills which are considered transferable, a great work ethic and…

So frustrated with a current employer

I have worked for this fastener company for last 2 years. I did work hard and worked 3 peoples jobs. I took care of my own accounts, 2 OEM accounts, I worked as an office manager and also my VP’s secretary. With no rewards coming, I was being used just to do these manual jobs and I was so done with it. People started to look down on me and finally I got a new job offer in banking as a Market Segment Specialist, put 2 weeks. Current employer wants…

Searching for a new job

I am trying to get out of a rough situation with my current job employed in a hospital food department. I love the pay but the people here are extremely toxic and the managers and supervisor are hounding me to just quit. I have applied for about 30 jobs with no response, I was wondering how I could go about scooping up a new job without having the new employer call to my current place of work only because I would like to keep my job hunt on the…

I see all over the place about people having hard times finding a job. For me it is easy to find a job my problem is finding a job i like that pays. I started working when i was 17 and in the past 13 years i have had more the 15 jobs most only lasted about a month. Is it common to look at a job work there and notice that people there are stuck and you do not want to be a part of it. Yes i know one day my luck will run out but if you are not doing…

Thanks for the inspiration Kristopher Barrett . Do you find that having jobs that only last a month hurts your job search?
