Worthless At 54?

I have been looking for work for, no lie, 5 years now. I'm frustrated to the point of tears. I have a small criminal record from 20 years ago, (misdemeanors) and a gap in my work history as I recovered from breast cancer. I paid my debts to society, but society obviously won't ever let me forget. I get SSI, but need to work part time to pay my bills. I don't ask for much; food, shelter, a car and a phone. Is that too much to ask for? I WANT to…

DOES COMPANY CULTURE MATTER?

When Choosing An Employer, Culture Matters

When determining whether an employer is the right fit for you, it is important to find out about its culture. Companies are as different as the people who work there and run the business. For better and worse, culture and leadership are inextricably linked. Founders and influential leaders often set the initial culture of their organizations. Over time an organization’s leaders can also shape culture…

Need Advice

Like everyone else looking for work, I have been applying for tons of jobs and getting no response. I have been out of work for the last 5 years because I have been taking care of my mom. My question is, do I put this on my resume or on a cover letter????? Otherwise it just looks like I have been doing nothing since 2014, which is not the case. This last 5 years has been the hardest work of my life. Caregiving, especially for a parent, is…

Yes, definitely explain the break-in-employment in a cover letter. You don't have to go into detail, but you should focus on how…

THIS MAJOR OVERSIGHT CAN AFFECT YOU! [IBYC]

I'm telling you the truth...

One major problem many people overlook at the blink of an eye! What is it?

HOUGHT: They forget to update their online resumes in multiple systems across the industry. Most likely, they maintain an update hardcopy on-hand, while the online copies are slightly outdated, or perhaps, has not been reviewed in most recent times.

TAKEAWAYS: Ensure your online resume is updated in the systems. This can be factor in…

Your resume has gaps!

If your resume has gaps this could be for a couple of reasons. Perhaps you were ill and needed to step away from working for a bit, or you simply could have been caring for a loved one or raising your child. Whatever the reason, your resume shows what you've done and having long gaps in your work history can give employers the wrong impression.

Here are some things you can do to minimize those gaps!

Use dates

How to explain job separation and likely bad reference

I and my former coworker feel that I was wrongfully terminated. For the last several months of my job, I was obviously being targeted and unfairly singled out. I have a flash drive full of evidence. The office manager even seemed to act maliciously towards me. Despite the overwhelming stress affecting certain cognitive abilities, I hung in there. I have a meeting scheduled with Industrial Affairs to finalize my complaint against my former…

Hi, I looked at my uploaded resume and it says private so, what I'm wondering is can employers see my Resume if they are looking to hire?

Have I been out of healthcare that long

I’m a Nurse, that was in Home Care administration, I took off 15 years to raise my kids and deal with some health issues, I’ve come back to work for a small home Care Agency, that I’m rebuilding, I’m in total disbelief how things have changed. The stories Ive heard about the way Caregivers are treated and the ridiculous way agencies are taking advantage of clients.
I’m curious if this is the new normal. I’m in the Pacific Northwest originally…

I would check out those companies in that area and also read past employee reviews to get a good idea of how things are now…

Dream job turned into a nightmare!!!

So, a couple of years ago I left working a huge hospital as a phlebotomist because they overload you with work and don't compensate you fairly. Plus, I ended up with an ankle injury from all the walking. It sounds crazy but apparently it is very possible. Anyway, I went to a group home for IDD adults. I kept thinking all the while I was nuts for the change and taking the pay cut. However, it turns out that I really liked what I did there. I felt…

Suggestion...how about a job in medical billing??
