700 resumes later and still Mo full time work. At age 48, tell me, am I just being bypassed because I'm pleasingly plump and 48 years old? Doesn't matter the years of experience now..this is crazy..so I put myself back into school taking a Human Resource course. Needless to say one test took 45 minutes for me to pass! Lollol. Anyone else out there experiencing the same thing? Restless in MD...

I am 47 with tons of office experience. I've been applying, steadily, everyday, ALL DAY, for a couple mths & still haven't heard…

What Does Memorial Day Mean To You?

Memorial Day is a day full of remembering our loved ones whom we lost who have served - friends, family, fathers, sons, mothers, daughters, brothers & sisters - and on this day, we honor each and every person who made the ultimate sacrifice.

I asked some of us here at Jobcase to share what Memorial Day means to them. Here’s what they said:

I got the call!

I got the call that I was offered a job! It doesn't pay as much as I would like, but I'm also working toward getting on with VIPkid. They mentioned several time that there is room for growth and I think that even if this isn't a forever career, the experience will definitely help my resume.
Keep applying! You can do it!

Congratulations!

2nd interview

I had my first interview last week, exactly, seven days. I was told I'd be contacted this week in regards to coming in for a second interview. Do I give them more time to contact me? It took them a month to call me after I sent them my resume.

It doesn't matter how extensive your experience and skills are, a new job hunt is always stressful. And in every time you compete for a competitive position, the margins of error are tiny; and you feel you must ace every interview.

It's easy to make mistakes when you have all of that pressure bearing down on you. Some are forgiving but others aren't such as answering I don't know to a question in an interview.

There are things and behaviors…

Resume (and profile) rule #1

Ok, so what's rule #1 on resumes? It is simply: Remember what they are for.

They are to make the reader think they'd like to learn more about you and/or to meet you. That's it.

A good resume gets someone to call you to learn more.
Period.
Full stop.

They do NOT get you hired.
