Too good to be true !!!

I was working and doing ok. I payed my rent and kept up my bills. Then in a crosswalk I was hit, broke foot, permanently damaged tendons nerves muscle etc. I'll never be able to work on my foot again. I have a lawsuit in motion, I'm on my way to eviction and lose everything I worked for, credit wise. I'm so screwed, I'm not sure why I'm writing this to you out there. Things can't get much worse. I don't want to fade away or die !! I've tried…

Gratitude: The Trait That Defines Perspective

Hey Jobcasers,

Today I'd like to talk about something that seems a little difficult in our search for the next best employment opportunity: Gratitude.

Gratitude is perhaps one of the most difficult things to muster up during a rigorous and harrowing experience such as unemployment, homelessness, and similar events, but I would argue that it is perhaps the most important thing to muster up--more than hope, more than tenacity, more than even…

Thank you. I know all to well about bare cupboards, empty refrigerator, no electricity, no gas to get anywhere and when I do have…

Bummed

I'm An intelligent person I learn very easily, my problem is I've only had one job. It lasted for 9 years, so I have no experience in anything other than serving/waitressing.... no one is willing to train me for anything other than serving. I Can't afford to pay my school loans so that I can go back to school for something, because I am a mother to four small children and as soon as I have a dollar it's already owed out. That's why I had to quit…

Your best bet is to find an office job in an entry level position such as receptionist or file clerk or mail room and move your…

College degree

So far my college degree hasn’t benefited me at all, in fact I’m going to have to take a lower wage in a less than favorable environment if something doesn’t change.

I have been looking, and applying for jobs for months now and nothing.

I know other people in the same position. I have wasted so much time getting a Health Science degree and now I’m in debt and jobless!
I officially give up after 7 months, we’re broke and I need to find a…

I agree that this is 100% true and I will also add that your experiences, resume, and skills don't either. With any job you apply…

HELP!!!!

So my bf works 10hrs Mon-Thur overtime if he works on fri. He has been there for over a year no benefits except insurance, he knows how to do everything at his job. It's a very physical job. The start off pay is very low about 40 people have been hired and quit within a day because the pay is so low for as much physical labor there is. Now the human resource manager is always shorting his checks a couple hrs. She also got mad because they brought…

Serious dilema

I've been on a few interviews this week and last week no success yet and I'm on my very last unemployment check with rent and bills due immediately. Are there any jobs out there that are definitely hiring right now? Everything is starting to pile up all over again and I don't think unemployment does extensions anymore.

There are jobs, not sure if you got a car. Uber, Lyft, Veyo. There are grocery stores, retail stores, Cleaning companies, clerical…

Just retired, well sorta

Planned my retirement two years in advance. Take note. I am soooo glad I planned ahead. Lots of things to consider.

Whatcha going to do?
I am taking a year off to do volunteer work, raising money to charity and going on the speaking tour to get it.

Can you afford it?
Yup! Planted some funds specifically for year one.

What’ll you do after?
Over the years I acquired skills that fit ideally with part time work, insurance sales, consulting and tax…

Sounds like you planned things out and made them happen!!! Way to go Charlie Scheele ! I look forward to checking out your book…

22 Interviews and still trying to keep my head up

I have been out of work for almost 4 months and been on over 20 interviews. Most of the companies I have either not heard from or had to chase after to find out that I didnt get the job . ANNOYING AND RUDE! I am learning that I just need to keep moving on. I am disappointed with my life right now but I can still set the reset button on my life. I can get a job, get my money situation in order, get my weight in control and start moving…

I totally understand how you feel. It does become difficult when people do not believe in you and make it hard for most. My advice…

DESPERATE

I'm down to my last 10 dollars. Got laid off in May. Unemployment hasn't compensated me. No one will hire me because of my age. Can't fully retire for another year. I have to move out of where I am by October. I just keep praying for a miracle. I'm determined to believe that God is going to make this situation better.
Does anyone know of any jobs where I don't have to be on my feet all day? I've been an administrative assistant my whole life…

I hope you found a job by now. But, if you haven't, try this: www.inolachamber.com. Also, look at this: https://tulsa.craigslist.o

Not to trust anyone. You’ll get stabbed in the back as soon as you turn around.

Horrible company to work for. Do a good job and you’ll get demoted and pay reduced. Stress beyond stressed. With on call pay you average $2.00 per hour.

Frustrated and Discouraged

I have applied to over 300 companies for nearly a year now and I've only gotten just a handful of bites. And after the few interviews I did receive the only explanation I was given was an email the next day saying although my resume and experience we're very impressive, they decided to move forward with another candidate. I have one Bachelor's degree in Psychology, another Bachelor's degree in Journalism with Mass Communications and a Creative…

Life has a way of making you feel you are failing. The feeling of discouragement can be over whelming. I can not give you any job…
