I was recently asked to take an online personality test in order to secure an interview. I successfully completed it, but I’ve never heard of this and I’m not sure how I feel about it. Has anyone else had to do this? If so, did it help you move forward or did it prevent you from being offered an interview and/or job?

I live in Spokane Washington

Personal Traits Sought By Employers

Employers are requiring more of their employees today in a technologically fast paced world. Employees must be able to not only adapt and thrive to an ever-changing world, but also must possess many skills and traits that will showcase and make them stand out from the crowd when job searching.

A resume must not only show potential employers a wide array of skills, work experience, accomplishments, but also... see more

Another question! How are the first days of training like at dollar general? Is it computer work or hands on training etc?

Great and very detailed

No, no, I’m not asking you to break out the crop top and start using the latest tween lingo. But I AM encouraging you to stay up to date on current trends and technology! :)

It’s no secret that companies who have greater diversity in their employees evolve more rapidly and successfully. However, age discrimination (or ageism) is a real hardship that many of those in the workforce struggle with.

Show them you’re just as knowledgeable as any... see more

First day from completing my orientation yesterday and today I am training working in a group home with Artistic individuals. I almost gave up trying BUT I kept faith and was always motivated due to the fact of having my two girls. I want to say Thank You to the whole Jobcase staff and I appreciate everyone working with me to find a job/career.

Congrats! They are lucky to have you! Hope you crush it in the new job and stay active in supporting everyone... see more

My position unexpectedly closed back in May of this year. I was blindsided & then I sulked for 2 months in anger. Then I decided to get out into the world of job hunting. Application after application, interview after interview. Then I gave in & went to an employment agency just to further my disappointment. Believe me I'm still going to accept a job offer when it finally presents itself because I need fuel (money) so that I could make more... see more

Thanks for the positivity, Julie Ficarra !

When I was preparing to make a shift in my career, I was nervous because I felt as though I didn’t have enough relevant experience for my desired role. Luckily, I realized the tremendous amount of transferable skills I had learned from my internships and many years in the hospitality industry.

Transferable skills are naturally learned skills that are non-job specific and can be used across any occupation. Many are commonly known as soft skills... see more

Since I was a small child to this very day, I have always wanted to be a pilot.. Have been lucky enough to have used a simulator a couple of times.. I'm at a point in my life where a career change is constantly on my mind. I've already looked into the pilot training programs and it's just way to expensive for me to pay for out of my own pocket. My question is,,, Does Delta or any other company have their own training program to bring in someone... see more

I apply for stuff that's supposed to be entry-level or training provided. But I keep getting rejection emails after another. It's getting annoying. I have plenty experience in verities of stuff but they won't give me an interview. I have a highschool diploma as well. So, what's the deal?

I can totally relate to what you are saying. I even have been rejected by companies who provide the exact same... see more

How can I find a good job that I know I’ll be trained to do, when the only places accepting people, where I live, only have like 10 people on staff that know what they’re doing? It’s not like I’m asking a lot, but it’s stupid that you can’t be hired at McDonalds because they don’t have enough experienced employees. I’m just looking for a good entry level job in any industry, that I can work in at 17 years old.
