I just recently split from my wife and I'm really down on my luck. Bills are piling up and I'm having a hard time finding a job that pays enough to keep the lights on. I don't have a college degree and all the jobs I qualify for pay barely minimum wage. I'm getting depressed and don't know what to do. I'm one more late payment away from being tossed on the street.

I came across an ad for an opening at Ryder Trucking that seems to offer decent... see more

I received a felony charge about 10years ago. I took my ex husbands fall. He owned his own company. He had 3 kids we had full custody off. Somehow in his divorce a credit card in his exes name was still being used and she justifiably had enough off the crap she was being put through custody wise and found that card was still in existence. Her and I have the exact same initials. He told me he could lose his kids and I wouldn’t get more than a slap... see more

I would love anyone’s thoughts on this topic. The latter part of my resume almost looks like I was job hopping win that is absolutely not the case. I stay at a good employer for as long as possible, and about four years ago I left A wonderful position due to going through a divorce at the time. I felt it more respectful to leave without making mistakes and getting fired and me and this doctor still have a personal relationship to this day. But... see more

This was a job that my ex-husband and I worked together. I loved it. It was working on a horse ranch that had cows and pigs chickens Etc. I would still be there but my ex-husband and the boss got into it. My boss said that I didn't have to leave but my ex-husband had to. At the time he was not my ex-husband he was my husband. So I left also.

A little sad to hear that you gave up a great job for a man that is now your ex husband. Welp:/ we live and learn... see more

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... see more

It is difficult for a woman to get a business up and running. Well for me it seems impossible. I'm 47, going through a nasty divorce and trying to improve my credit score. My driving record is great. I'm an attentive listener and conversationalist. I believe in my business choice. Networking is a must and I'm not able to get out and do that much. Always thinking about alternatives to loans and grants since I've had no luck with... see more

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... see more

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... see more
