So I live in the Tampa area and work at a place that is open 24/7 and I’m not happy where I am we work 4 10 hr days and that’s a plus but I just don’t feel like I’m the right fit for this job.

Two truckers share their stories

Meet Nailah and Martin!

Two different people who truly love what they do, which is driving a truck.

When a friend suggested that Nailah attend truck driving school she stood in front of her in high heels and a dress and thought NO way was this for her. Today she happily says, “I am in a place where I don’t have to want for anything. I am happy. I don’t have bill collectors calling me…

Fell short of the dream...

I worked my way though undergraduate school, mostly manual labor and warehouse jobs, and came out debt-free. Pursued a graduate degree, but was unable to finish the degree. Now I have tons of student loans which will be calling in soon, and no good prospects. Applied to about 15 jobs via online job postings (mostly labor and warehouse), and no bites yet. Any advice or recommendations?

Keep looking. Consider substitute teaching and use that four year degree. You can always finish you graduate degree later. As far…

Ask for a loan?

After being unemployed for 7 months, I have finally received a job offer. However, due to delay in starting and the natural wait for the first paycheck, it will be at least a month before I receive my first paycheck. I am in difficult circumstances right now, and unable to pay my current rent. What would you think about asking my new employer for some sort of assistance in this matter?

You could ask for an advance, however since you just started this job that might set a negative tone William Snyder Are there any…

We all go thru experiences that can change our worlds for a moment..maybe take away that I can do anything attitude..which at one point we could..
How do we manage.not getting a job that best suits you or going deeper into debt.waiting for the right one.
We either go thru jobs and look silly because we have had to take what was there to stay debt clear..

Why Work Hard For Little Pay

When I moved to Atlanta, I already had debts. A low paying job doesn't benefit me especially when every month I owe $2,600 and. had worked 4 days a week was a disadvantaged to me. I expected. living in a big city would pay more, but I was disappointed again when I found out the truth. I don't undersrand why society in big cities cost more. and pai is SO LOW

Pissed.

My school loans killed another job opportunity. Thanks to credit check. Can't pay them back if I can't get a job.... College was the biggest mistake of my life. Not worth it.

I wouldn't say going to college is a bad decision going to Brightwood College in Charlotte North Carolina was a horrible mistake
