I am not looking for a new job for myself but I work with staffing companies to help them share their open jobs with Jobcase. Most of the staffing companies I'm speaking with are not hiring or are not hiring very many people in January.

But from what I am reading online, it seems January is a great time for job search -- this made me think of the Jobcase community:

If you are actively job searching how are you managing your search? Are... see more

Hi all,
Work for manufacturing industry. Times are tough and company was barely a float for 7 years. Now a new company has bought us out and I am transitioning at my same pay. Should I ask for more money? They have reviews every jan/Feb. Is it better to wait and show my self worth til than?

Record and document EVERYTHING.

A few months ago I posted that I was doing the job of three people and was thinking of asking for a raise.

I then stated that I was going to wait to see how our year went with hitting our goals, if we hot bonuses, etc

Well, fate interviened.. A month ago I was hospitalized with pneumonia and sepsis. I was in the hospital for 7 days and then bedridden at home for two weeks. At work, they had to divide my work between 4 people. I figured when... see more

Thanks to everyone for their comments and suggestions on my previous post. I have made a decision and thought I would share.

Even though I have been with the company for 3 years, this is the first year I have been doing the job I was hired for. If we make all of our production and shipping goals we will get a bonus in November. So, I have decided to wait to see if we get the bonus - that will give me a little more leverage.

Our review process... see more

I was recently given a promotion at work and transferred to a new location...come to find out the new location they sent me too has been sold and is becoming a different store! I’m upset that they removed me from where I was at promised me a raise and then stuck it to me! The new owners seem nice kept my same pay but no raise! GM says he wasn’t aware that the store was being sold but I don’t believe one word! I depend on my job so I feel like I... see more

I've been at my job for 16 years and dont get the recognition or praise that I should. I have been overlooked and feel very disrespected. It's time for me to move on I think. I have been managing for the past 13 years and have put apps in and no return on anything. What's wrong with me? Or is it that none wants to deal with training me on something different

I currently work on a team that is structured with money director (my boss), two managers (myself and another), and 12 senior/junior analysts below us split between us.

I just found out the other manager put in his 2 weeks and will leave the team short handed at the management level. We currently have no immediate internal or external prospects for the other manager position. Is now the time to approach my boss about a raise as I will be the... see more
