Decisions Decisions

After a layoff and 6 months of looking I now have 2 offers on the table. One offer is full time with a small company (35 employees) for a Estimator position that pays 73k salary with a possible 10% raise after my first year. This pays about 15% less and is a lesser title than what I have been accustom to. The second option is a contract position for a major aircraft company as a Contentious Improvement Specialist II position at $40 an hour + OT…

Both position have there advantages. Security beats wages every time. U just return from been out work for 6 months.

Yes, you can be hired at 58 (or any age)!...

I thought my fellow Jobcasers would be encouraged reading this story:

A few weeks ago, I received an email as I was found through an online search to see if I would be interested in a newly created position. I did a quick check of the organization, was impressed and replied back.

In turn, I received a reply, had a phone screen, was asked to go in for a first interview, a second interview and then a third interview. I met with 8 people total. A…

College is a scam part 2.

Will now I make below minimum wage. Thanks to my student loans. College is a scam that keeps giving. Guess what? Thanks to all this college crap I can't even get a decent paying job. All I get a low wage work.

Fed up with only be qualified for low wage work.

Despite my skills and education and talents. The only jobs I ever get or get offered it low wage minimum wage work. I am fed up with it. Tired of it. They all seem to be looking for personality archetypes over anything else here in the Puget Sound area. Like are you an extrovert or do you fit someone who has a high emotinal intelligence.

I need help, please.

Like many others, I can't find a job. The bills are piling up, my husband has dementia and Parkinson's and I'm his sole caretaker. I can't collect unemployment because they consider me a transient worker ( I hopped from one assignment to another). So what's the next step? Do I qualify for State benefits? Where do I find info on that? Who do I ask? I've been sending resumes, filling out job applications,etc. I'm at a loss and I feel like crying…

Skip college

#College is an idiotic waste of time and resources. Take from someone who has two degrees. I am more unemployable now then I was before college. Its not worth it. Skip college and do something else. Only go if its required by low that you have to have a college degree to do the job you want. Start a business, get an apprenticeship, a high school internship. So many other options out their that won't put you into massive debt and waste many years…

Not in demand? What about the gaming industry? :)

Fedup, frustrated, Depressed.

Only jobs I seem to be able to get is part time minimum wage work. Does not seem to matter what my skills are or my education or past successes. Its been that way my entire working like. I can't seem to get anything better. People around me act like I have never worked a day in my life. That the current job is my first job. Low wage work then long periods of unemployment. So tired of it.

Or maybe you're bored with your work and are ready for a new job.

The best time to find a new job is while you have one. But if you…

A tip off - Enterprise.

A friend of mine works for Enterprise Rent A Car as a driver. He has told me they are always looking for part time drivers. Once you are in you could get higher paying positions. He also told me its great for people who want to supplement their income. For example he told me many of the drivers he works with are old retired navy guys who are looking for some extra money to supplement their pensions. Just an option for you folks.

I am at my wits end.

What do you do when the only jobs in your area are retail and they won't touch you with a 10 foot pole because you are not an extrovert? Its getting frustrating. Only jobs are the retail jobs and thats it. I don't have an option to move to a different area with other job options. They ether don't hire me because I don't fit their personality test or they look at my education level and say you are to educated or we view you as a threat to our jobs…

An introvert can have a very good person and even be charming. Plus be very intelligent about what they are selling. If you can…
