They gave me a chance

A while back I was unemployed and broke and struggling after my former employer went under but I ended up becoming a manager at Dollar General. I feel like they really took a chance on me. It was up to me to learn a whole new system but I got a good rep with my store and even though managing a store can sometimes be tough I got the hang of it. After a while I’m now on track to move up to the district level. I always will remember Dollar General…

James, thank you for sharing. What a great success story. Wishing you everything best in your professional endeavors.

What Does Memorial Day Mean To You?

Memorial Day is a day full of remembering our loved ones whom we lost who have served - friends, family, fathers, sons, mothers, daughters, brothers & sisters - and on this day, we honor each and every person who made the ultimate sacrifice.

I asked some of us here at Jobcase to share what Memorial Day means to them. Here’s what they said:

Frustrated......

So here's my frustration. I have been unemployed for two months now after being with a company I loved but because of budget cuts, my position was the first to go. Now I'm in search of employment but the problem is according to all the interviewers I'm either over qualified or not qualified enough. I've literally applied to over 200 jobs and I've had over 100 interviews. What is wrong with me? I'm really starting to feel like I'm not good enough…

I am so sorry Nichole Jensen that is very frustrating. So I have been there girl. Don't let the rejections stop you! The fact that…

Square peg in a round hole...Striking out everywhere I go.

So I've applied to hundreds of jobs...had a few interviews, but no offers. Im going to be honest...Im not the smartest guy. I finished high school, but was in the Special Ed. program because I have a borderline IQ. I CAN WORK and WANT TO WORK. I am getting disability, becuase of it, but want to get off of it and support myself. I have a small part time job that pays $7.50 an hour but only 15 hours a week. Ive been there a year...no raise...no no…

Keep being persistent and someone will hire you for employment. Some employers will look at your resume and see if you can get…

Good Afternoon,

As I started out my day I try to look back at what I did yesterday that I can better today?
Yesterday was Easter a very holy holiday in the Christian community as one would agree? Keep in mind I had to work, this gives me a chance to do a lot of thinking. During my drive, I started to think about how many homeless people will not have a meal today. Let alone a meal, but a place to rest. This is one topic that comes across my…

The holidays are a great time for reflection. Homelessness and what's called Hidden Homelessness are huge issues that affect an…

Ive had enough

I got turned down at two more interviews last week. I think it is time to start facing reality, this isn't going to happen. Believing I can and it really happening are two separate and unrelated things, so I need to prepare for my life as a homeless person. Good luck to you all.

Employed after 1yr wait...

So glad I didn't give up.
Finally, after moving to a new state 2,000miles from the previous one, I got hired in a good fit position. Although I went through an agency, it happened so fast to my surprise & the team I work for is very cohesive.
The journey was very VERY hard while battling homelessness & sadness along with my husband. It was such a culture shock as a result of moving and a challenge, but made it through it all.
Keep hope alive…
