Hi everyone,
I lost my job when my boss sold his business before Thanksgiving. He couldn't bare to tell me before 5 days prior.

I loved writing constant stories on politics and law and carved out my own beat on the Supreme Court, wrote about how Interior Secretary David Bernhart is trashing the environment.

I also wrote about cannabis and just applied to Marijuana Business Daily.

At the same time, I'm taking a copywriting course to try to... see more

My boss asked me to meet with his HR advisor for a discussion the day before I was supposed to return to work from FMLA leave. During our meeting, the HR Advisor let me know that my boss has asked him to let me know that he would like me to submit a voluntary resignationas I had missed too much work (2 weeks). He felt that a voluntary resignation would help us part ways on good terms.

I was caught by surprise of his request because he has... see more

Like many, I have been in the unfortunate situation of abruptly finding myself without a job. I don't mind telling you, in the moment, it's a completely demoralizing experience. When this did happen to me, there were a few steps I took so I could move forward productively:

1) I was gracious -- I thanked my employer for the opportunity and offered to expedited any needed transition. Why was I so nice? I don't believe in burning bridges... see more

I was recently fired from my job for circumstances that were not entirely my fault . I did own my part in it and hold no resentment against my former employer . My advice is to move on with dignity and use resources that are available and seek employment elsewhere

I saw this article and thought others would benefit on how to bounce back after being fired. There's some great information here, please let me know if it was helpful!

It isn't fair for anyone to be able to fire someone for no reason.
There are a lot of wonderful people who have sorely suffered because of that law, and now it's time to make a change!

Hello All,
I would like to revise my current resume to include most if not all nine temporary positions held from 2 months to 21 months. Should I not mention my 2 mos. 2x of loading delivery trucks, because that is not my forte? Ever since 2015 lay off of a decade of working for same employer in administrative, office assistant and customer service, then and thereafter, most of the temporary positions were interesting and gainful experience. I... see more
