In the year 2019, what is the proper time to wait for a decision to an interview you just had? If you are told during the Interview a decision will be made by end of week, should one assume that if you don't hear anything back by end of week, that you have not been selected for the position? I usually send a thank you for the Interview email within 24 hours of having my Interview. What is the proper time to wait to email regarding the status... see more
One of the most productive pieces of career advice I got in my early years out of college was my first manager telling me to always dress for and act for the next role I want, so that when opp opens up I am a natural to be considered. That worked in my early banking career quite well.
Nowadays part of my role is to identify new leaders. I don't really look or care about attire (Sorry Mr. Phinney, that worked in 20th-century banking but not in... see more
I believe we are stuck and labeled in jobs we have most experience. We are banned from trying new things. Employers make it harder by having potential hires do it online. Most seniors have difficulty doing the applications online. Resume pickiness. I was a LPN for 30+ years and retired. I also have a sewing business and I am very personable and have done many areas in customer service but it is a very broad title, too broad.
On January 3rd, 2020 I was wrongfully terminated. My manager put me on a PIP for 3 months which is a performance improvement plan. Before I was on this plan I went to HR stating that my manager did not like me and kept saying rude things to me behind closed doors. Then someone kept changing my work and saying I was not doing my work. Although, I have proof that this was being done they took it as my word against her word and took her word and... see more
Hi, I have been searching for a job now for several months. I have had several interviews and some offers, however, the salary range I am looking for from these employers will not pay my salary range. I am 4 to 5 years away from retirement. Just trying my best to be patient and hope the right fit and company with the right salary will come into my radar as i apply.. My thinking is you pay for quality work performance. Much harder for middle aged... see more

I work for a call center I was accused of wrong doing wrong was told I went to another agents desk grabbed his mouse and started playing around the screen. Hours later after the supposed incident took place I was called into a conference room to let me know the way I was being approached. This supervisor started shouting at me, I asked her to bring in the person she would not and being very disrespectful towards me. I then resigned send an... see more
I've been contacted by so many recruiters only for them to disappear on me. Either on the phone, in person, or video they tell me what a wonderful resume I have, they think they can help, blah, blah, blah, then I don't hear squat. It makes so angry that recruiters put you through all of this then leave you hanging. I'm unemployed. I'm not going through this process for fun. I need a job so why they heck are you contacting me and wasting my time... see more
I have a job interview on Wednesday and the interview prep questions were overwhelming. It is going to take me 2 days to prepare for this interview even though I am qualified for this position. I'm also worried about the job itself, I keep telling myself that I just need to get through the first 5 days then I'll be fine.
The prior job that I quit is still screwing me. I started this job and they talked me into signing a salaried job offer sheet, they said that there would be downtime and that a salary would even out the pay so you would be paid even when there was no work. Well it turned out that in the twelve weeks I worked there I had 10-20 hours more then 40 every week with one or two weekend days as well. The job also involved travel with a thirty dollar a... see more
