See I love my job that I have now. I am a part time receptionist at this soft ware company. As you know that all jobs have its bad days as well, but that part doesn't compare to how I feel. Yes it is far from where I live. I am a temping through an agency. I don't want to leave my job. The people are great and kind. The job is super easy most days. I don't know many people that look forward to going to work. The problem is that I need a full... see more

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:

I'm very frustrated, I got a temp job and the posting said 5+ months, but I was notified today my assignment has ended. It's only been 3 weeks, and all I was told was that they were making changes and for business reasons they decided to end my assignment. I've been trying to find a good job for awhile and really thought this was a good job for me.

I am sorry to hear that. Working as a temp can be frustrating. I have done it. I still do. It happens. Best of... see more

I was working for a Temp agency doing a job that I really liked. I was doing extremely well, and caught on quickly. I worked for 4 weeks and had to go to the ER for kidney stones, I missed the 1 day but went back the next day. I worked 4 1/2 hrs the next day and I was doubled over in pain and crying..but still working..when the Supervisor came up and told me that I really needed to go home, that there was no way I could stay and work in that... see more

I have been searching for a new job since the beginning of June. I have over 12 years in administrative experience. I am getting interviews but then get ghosted. Even by staffing agencies. One job stated that they went with another applicant as they live closer to the business. A staffing agency emailed me and said they would have to dig deeper to find something appropriate for me. I've had only 2 jobs in the past 13 years. Due to hard work &amp... see more

I have bounced around from one assignment to the next hoping that it would be different every time! Each time I’ve worked with these companies I’ve either been laid off or fired. The firing has been unfair in a sense that I’ve had a problem with something or someone and there has been no advocacy. I’ve proven each time that I have skill and education, which most of the time has been more than enough than what an employer can ask for. I’ve been in... see more
