Below is a calculator to determine what a 'living wage' would be in your location. Do you think this is accurate?
Jobcase believes every employer should help provide either a living wage or a pathway to it. We understand that not every job will be able to pay a living wage. But we believe employers should provide one of the following 3 cases for every job:
a) provide a living wage
b) if providing a sub-living wage, THEN provide an internal... see more

I was asked “where does your manager think you are today” during an interview this week. I told him I used a vacation day but I actually had to call in sick because they notified me about the interview 2 days before. I hated lying about that but I felt the interviewing manager was putting me on the spot with that question. Why would he ask me that? Do you think that’s something he will ask my current employer when he does a reference check?

I don't think they can ask you that question and if they do call your employer they can't ask anything other than... see more

I recently got stumped big time at an interview when the interviewer asked me about my biggest flaw. How can I answer this honestly without ruining the interview? Is it possible? The rest of the interview was okay but they haven’t offered me the job. What other tough questions I can prepare for in case they invite me back for a second interview?

You need to take your flaws and turn them around to be positive, ie, One of my biggest flaws is that I am a... see more

I had FMLA in place at my last job. Should I wait to be hired to bring this up, or should I state this in interviews? I feel withholding this information is somehow wrong! My last Job everyone had 30-minutes for lunch. My lunch had to be an hour sometimes a little longer, this also covered occasional appointments.

Thank You

One of the most common questions asked during an interview or at a job fair is…

Can you tell me about yourself?

Other variations could include:
-Why should we hire you?
-Why do you want to work here?
-Tell us who you are.
-What is it about us that makes you want to work here?

Just know that employers are not looking for you to actually tell them about your personal life like your favorite shows or how awesome your children are. They are... see more

What is your greatest weakness? This common interview question can be very difficult to answer. When I applied to colleges, I was even asked this question.
1. Don’t work against yourself. Don’t list too many serious weaknesses and degrade yourself, but if you disguise your weakness as a strength, it can come across not genuine.
2. Find a middle ground Answer the question with one of your genuine weaknesses, but then include how your strengths... see more

I learned to always be selfless when it came to customers and doing a job, always put the customers' interest front and center. I learned a lot of diligence and self reliance as well as team reliance, sometimes I even forgot that my boss was my dad, and often seen him as a leader in ways that mattered in the work force.

What does this mean? Learn how to spell and type please.

Hi everyone.
I have a WC priority conference set up next week. My Attorney told me that most often the Employer will give you an offer but you will be expected to resign.
My question is how to explain that in an interview when asked why did you leave your lsst employer

Hi Monique,
There's no reason to give a lot of detail as to why you left your previous employer. (And I'm not sure... see more
