I’ve been working all my life. Single mother 3 kids with oldest just graduated. I’ve been in HR for 11 years now, associates degree, with same company for that length of time and I feel I’m underpaid. I’ve said something plenty of times and when I did was told if wasn’t happy find a new job. Seen people come and go like a revolving door even stayed when my boss of 15 years left. Always being praised how good of job I do. Excellent work... see more
Personal Traits Sought By Employers
Employers are requiring more of their employees today in a technologically fast paced world. Employees must be able to not only adapt and thrive to an ever-changing world, but also must possess many skills and traits that will showcase and make them stand out from the crowd when job searching.
A resume must not only show potential employers a wide array of skills, work experience, accomplishments, but also... see more
It’s been a little over 3 months since leaving my previous employer. I left for various reasons, primarily because I refuse to work in a verbally abusive atmosphere where I had been threatened and accosted by another coworker (for which there was no recourse because HR was non existent). I have submitted applications EVERY single day and not gotten a single response. Not even an automated email saying they’ve decided to move forward with other... see more
So I have lived in Florida for about 1 month now and have had interviews and offers, more so rejections at companies I am qualified to work at. I have had some offers but the pay is so low. I have a 3 month old I’d have to put in day care so it’s just not worth it. I am spending nights and hours applying and not getting many acceptance emails or interviews, this by far is the hardest job search I have had. I love Florida and made the change for... see more
I’m a single mother of two with no family at all and a mortgage... I stepped out on faith due to a daily 98 mile round trip commute. I went on LOA in hopes to find a position near my new home that I bought last year. It took almost 4 months and I thought I was going to have to take a big pay cut but God said no you don’t my child. I got exactly what I wanted... $30 an hour with a 15 mile commute. Praise God!!!! Thank you so much for this... see more
First day from completing my orientation yesterday and today I am training working in a group home with Artistic individuals. I almost gave up trying BUT I kept faith and was always motivated due to the fact of having my two girls. I want to say Thank You to the whole Jobcase staff and I appreciate everyone working with me to find a job/career.
I feel like I’m being punished for being a single parent. Employers do not work with you when it comes to your children! I have been denied jobs because I have to work days in order to get to my daughter. It’s just not okay! I’m discouraged at this point. I went to school and received my degree for nothing apparently! I just don’t know what to do at this point I am afraid that I won’t be able to pay bills.....

What is a good advice for single mothers who haven't worked for past 5 years to take care of their children, but is now ready to go back to work now that the kids are of age to stay at home without parental supervision
After some careful consideration, I have decided to continue my academic journey and return to school next month to earn my PhD. I have an extreme passion for learning, organizational change, and motivating the workforce. I also admit I have an even stronger obsession with taking care of my children. So world of industrial and organizational psychology here I come, full throttle!
I have applied for almost 4,000 jobs in the last year and a half. I got my masters degree in Psychology with hopes of getting a good paying job. I’m lucky to work at a gas station making minimum wage!!! It’s pathetic how companies are hiring only for looks. I can’t get a job to save my life! For those who don’t believe me just ask around. I’m not drop dead gorgeous but I’m not that bad. I have 2 kids that are starving because their mother can’t... see more
