I have been looking for months for a job and I was beginning to get discouraged when a job, it's a retail job offered to hire me. I accepted but havent gone for the orientation yet but the date is scheduled. The same day I accepted I received two other interviews one of which I really would like. How would I tell the original job that I no longer want the job? Of course I wont tell them anything if I dont get the job at the place I really want... see more
If you think you nailed that interview or the recruiter said,
Keep in touch, don't just sit and wait for the phone to ring with a job offer. Instead, be proactive. There are things you should do after a job interview that can increase the odds of getting a second interview or landing a job offer.
Well I went to horizon Staffing and got a job at strength of Nature. It's Monday thru Thursday night shift and 9.50 a hour so I'll keep you guys posted about how it goes for me.
So today I had to go this job and take a test for it and I got there like usual 15 minutes early. They take me to a computer and sign on the test. Well during the test there was some question that where voice read to you and the headphone they gave me didn’t work and I believe I completely got all the Questions wrong but I told them what happen and said let’s see how you do and I will give you a call back but here the kicker they said even though... see more
I will keep this short, but I have been on here since being laid off since March of this year. I assumed the job search would not be as difficult as I have experience in Telecom/IT. I was wrong. I admit I did get some offers to contract, but they were out of state and I could not work those positions as I am a single father and my youngest son just entered high school. I finally got a position with Delta Global Services (DGS). It is subsidiary of... see more
I was recently laid off after 30 years at my previous employer all because my general manager had it in for me.
Even though HR told me I was eligible for rehire, I think that was BS, because every job I’ve applied for I’ve either gotten a rejection email or never heard anything.
I’ve signed up with LinkedIn, Indeed, ZipRecruiter, etc. and directly applied to various company websites. Rejection after rejection.
I’m getting tired of the... see more
I started off homeless. Got a job at Burgerking while sleeping on a friends couch. I went from there to hotel housekeeping. My friend lost her apartment, so I was homeless once again; all the while I continued to work. I ended up renting a room. Shortly after landing the new job I was in a bus accident which caused a back injury. I lost my job. While on unemployment I did my job searches and landed a job, in which I still have to this day (over 2... see more
Another question! How are the first days of training like at dollar general? Is it computer work or hands on training etc?
I don’t care that I’m 68 years old…..I'm like a fine wine! I get BETTER with age!! I believe I was facing age discrimination in my job search for the last year or so until I realized that I was half the problem!
I wasn’t staying positive and coming to interviews prepared to show them that I am just as able to complete the job as someone half my age. One tip I do have that I would like to share with you all is to UPDATE YOUR RESUME!

I’m a single mother of two with no family at all and a mortgage... I stepped out on faith due to a daily 98 mile round trip commute. I went on LOA in hopes to find a position near my new home that I bought last year. It took almost 4 months and I thought I was going to have to take a big pay cut but God said no you don’t my child. I got exactly what I wanted... $30 an hour with a 15 mile commute. Praise God!!!! Thank you so much for this... see more
