Help!!!!

I have been a stay at home mother and wife. I haven't worked in 10 yrs. Now I find myself at the beginning of a divorce and need to find a job. I have 2 school age children and need to be home for them when they get out of school. I would love a job that you can do from home. I need help! I have no resume. If they could just look at all the things I've done for my family I would be qualified for a good job. Alas they dont do that so I'm stuck…

I would put together a resume. There are many templates online. I would highlight my skills moreso than an employment history.

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…

A little lost

I worked at a major televison network in NYC for 16 years. The commute into midtown Manhattan from my apartment in NJ has gotten more and more difficult over the years as mass transit reliability gets worse and worse. The company laid me off 12/16/18 and I still have not found a job and my 8 weeks’ severance pay is almost gone. I have decided it is time to leave. I scoped out Knoxville TN in 2017 and went back afer the layoff, but without a…

Safety coordinator

I was with a great company for many years.and I was making six figures plus a year. I went through a divorce and have all three girls living with me. I have lost everything and have all kinds of certification's that add up to lots of money. But today I'm working through a temp service making $400 a week. It's not what I'm use to making and what it has made me realize is that all those years busting my ass was a waste of time and energy. I would…

So parter left me dry

So me partner of 18.5 years left on my second day getting a new job. It destroyed me and I ended loosing my new job. Then he sought to evict me, then not let me represent in the sale of the house. Then has been hostile. Now threatens to take it all away. I have been a mess psychologically. And indecisive and have bombed each job interview. Have a few places to go to, but can't decide. Which way to go.

I am so sorry Johnny Johns I think the best thing to do is to take a step back and allow yourself to grieve this loss. I would…

Thru a storm.

How do you deal with divorce after being married 14 years? The pain doesn't subside much. My father privileges have been taken from me for the next three years. The emotional pain comes out sideways towards others around me. I walk around confused hurt and in the world by myself. I get irritated easily at work but I also focus most of my energy on doing my job to help ease the emptiness...

Just reaching out... I feel numb. Women look my way and I…
