Forbes Article- The Ten Best Things About Getting Fired

Good Insights I found helpful, hopefully you will as well. ....... :)

Most of us were taught as kids that getting other people's approval is extremely important. I still remember how ashamed I was to get hauled to the front of the classroom for some infraction in first grade.
I wanted to be invisible in the back row.
As adults we still believe that making people happy is important -- especially people in positions of authority! We try as hard…

Great read. I feel much better after reading this.

They can't fire me....can they?!

If you’ve recently been let go from a job it can make you feel angry, confused, and unsure of what to do next. You may have seen the term at-will thrown around and you aren't even quite sure what that is. Let’s take a look!

• What does “at-will” mean? If you work for a company and you are considered an “at-will” employee, this means you can be dismissed by an employer for any reason without having to establish just cause for termination and…

My aunt lost her job

She was working at Toys R Us for like 5 years as a stocker so she was pretty sad when it closed. We all take job security for granted until it's gone. She applied to Target, Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, even Mc Donalds but ended up getting a job at Amazon with pretty good pay too. She starts soon and I am excited for her. Don't ever give up!!! Good things are coming for you.

Is mc.donalds hiring. In Somers point n.j hiring?

I'm talking to YOU

Yes, you. I know how you're feeling right now, because it's the same way I've felt. Lost, frustrated, maybe even a little desperate. But no matter what negative emotions are threatening to swallow you up, KEEP PUSHING FORWARD. God will take you to where you need to go. Just meet him halfway and put in that hard work. Never give up, because I'm not giving up on you!

Turning lemons into lemonade...

I've had 5 job interviews last week. Today I got rejected from two. One in particular, I was incredibly excited for. It took every ounce of my strength not to cry when I read the rejection letter. So what did I do? I went and got a cookie with a friend. I signed up to volunteer at a local animal shelter (because puppies could cheer ANY one up right?). I started my prep for the 6th interview I have coming up. I reflected and realized that the…

I love your positivity, the world needs MORE of this attitude that's for sure!

So tired of getting let down...

For the past year, I've had awesome interviews that led to me getting hired. Unfortunately it also led me to have to quit just as quick. In job descriptions they describe days and times needed to fill the position (nothing out of the norm) then in the interview I ask again if those are truly the exact days and times and they claim it is. Then my first day on the job I'm told a COMPLETELY different schedule that is so far off that I can't work it…

Absolutely I'll keep looking, I have to work. My frustration is how can a job hire you for one thing, then when hired you're given…
