So frustrated!!!

I was fired from Rite Aid/Walgreens for breaking policy on May 2nd of this year. I LOVED my job and it was a stupid mistake, I've put in what feels like a million applications for similar jobs with no bites. I'm 43 I do not want to work in a grocery store, gas station or fast food place. I want to work in retail. Any suggestions of how I can make this happen????

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…

I felt it more respectful to leave without making mistakes and getting fired and me and this doctor still have a personal relationship to this day. But…

Good Advice from a Career Coach (I AM NOT A COACH - JUST SHARING INFO)

This is WHY you are NOT invited for any job interview!

You respond to job ads all day long but NEVER hear a word back!

Almost every day I hear from clients:

Nothing WRONG with you!
