I can not find a good job!

I have my MBA and I have been out of work since August 2018. I broke my leg in January 2018. I was a contractor at a great Pharmaceutical company. A week after I broke my leg, I was informed that they were ending my contract. I have had some HR contract positions since my leg has healed but I am overlooked even after I explain my contracts ending. I am currently waitressing but my unemployment is running out. I am not an extremely hard…

Hi,

What should I do

I am a industrial maintenance technician, and have been doing this for almost 7 years. I have been fighting myself with faceing the fact that I love what I do but my body is starting to feel the pain that comes with the job. I have recently been looking into becoming a maintenance planner and going to school to get my certification for planning. My issue is paying for it and trying to switch from being a tech to a planner. I feel like it might be…

Ask you employer if they offer any kind of training or help with getting what you need to become a mechanical planner

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…

That sounds about right .my story is kind of the same .I dont know if your knee injury was work related or not .Mine is and I need…

I need help

I have been managing over 27 years. My last job was at taco bell and I was there for 10 years. I had to make the decision to resign do to health reasons. The concrete floors was messing with my body from the knees down so my doctor told me I had to make a decision or I wouldn't be walking in the next 2 years if I stayed. Now, I can't stand for over 5 hours without my legs swollen. I put in application for a desk job but I can't get a response…

SSDI rejection

I got rejected on Wednesday by SSDI. I read only 30% of their applications get accepted on the first try. After 5 months, ssa.gov sent me a form letter letting me know I may not be able to work my previous job, but that this did not mean I could not work (I applied for eight months before getting a call back from my temp agency). My doctor told me to appeal (i.e. he would continue to do nothing). On their resubmit screen, SSDI even had the…

I got FIRED !!!

I got fired bcuss ive got diagnosed with lung issues , I have difficulty breathing so had to be calling out I have all the paper work and that job still decided to FIRE me. They didn't care about my health they just said attendance issues. They were more worried about their product than my f*** health and it's real sad I've worked for them for almost 2yrs. But God will heal me and I will find another job that will understand my conditions.
