Two truckers share their stories

Meet Nailah and Martin!

Two different people who truly love what they do, which is driving a truck.

Sometimes in life, you need to think outside of the box.

When a friend suggested that Nailah attend truck driving school she stood in front of her in high heels and a dress and thought NO way was this for her. Today she happily says, “I am in a place where I don’t have to want for anything. I am happy. I don’t have bill collectors calling me…

Yes..this is true...but you can not share your good things to haters! It can be a family member...

Frustrated!!

I got laid off my job of 12 years. Leadership needed to cut costs and make changes. Some got affected including myself. My unemployment ran out at 6 months. So, here I am a struggling single Mother with one teen. It’s been almost a year now and only landed 2 Temporary positions. They’re waiting on my prints to come back, before starting. With over 20 years of experience I thought I wouldn’t have any problems. It’s sad..I had over 20 interviews…

Seems they are looking at age instead of experience...i have and still do experience this....when all the ppl who had been…

2nd interview

I had my first interview last week, exactly, seven days. I was told I'd be contacted this week in regards to coming in for a second interview. Do I give them more time to contact me? It took them a month to call me after I sent them my resume.

Furious!!

So I had a job interview at a job that was about 50 min away. They technically hired me on the spot except for the fact that she never said those magic words “you’re hired!” She just introduced me to the entire company as “our new AP Accountant” as she gave me the tour of the building. The first week I hardly worked due to computer issues. Second week I was finally able to begin working on entering invoices into the system. At the start of the…

I would not merely ask for reasons why, I would demand it. If you diligently showed up on time and performed the work, and since…

What does "you're not a good fit" really mean?

Sigh. It's happened again. The interview went so well -- or so it seemed. But then comes the 'kind' rejection: We do not feel you would be a good fit....

What are they telling you? Was it something that you said? Or didn't say? What IS a 'good fit'?

This article offers a different perspective. Hope it's helpful: https://meetingjobs.com/not-good-fit-really-mean/

So I just went on a interview today! I applied for three different positions. Same company. I thought it went very well. Then…

Resume (and profile) rule #1

Ok, so what's rule #1 on resumes? It is simply: Remember what they are for.

They are to make the reader think they'd like to learn more about you and/or to meet you. That's it.

A good resume gets someone to call you to learn more.
Period.
Full stop.

They do NOT get you hired.

You do NOT need to tell every detail and life story.

You need to write it in summary form, with results and with the goal of wanting the reader to think: that

Appreciate your efforts in wanting to help me Re-adjust my resume, seems like you already have reviewed it. I am not an…
