Still frustrated....

My area is economically a low man on the totem pole. Meaning we have about 10 to 15 percent unemployment most of the time. Regardless if the economy is doing well or not. What that means for me is I can't get a decent job that would allow me to save up to move to a better work area. Where there are jobs. What jobs there are here where I live are mostly low wage retail work. So that leaves me trapped in a area I loath to death and have no way out…

Yes the economy is good for rich people not for the poor if the economy is so good why is there so many freaking poor people…

Did you do your Homework?

Everyone one of us wants/needs to stand out when we get a coveted in-person interview.

Homework: Use Google to do some basic research. What exactly does the company do, what is there product? Where are they Headquartered at? How many employees? How many different locations do they have? And often you can find out has any of their jobs already been outsourced out of the country, or even to other companies. What are their short and long…

A HAND UP NOT A HAND OUT

Monday, a friend of mine told me that he was laid off from a major financial company because the company decided to outsource the jobs to India.
I told him about jobcase and I sent him a few joblinks.

Yesterday, I reached out to a former client who works for a financial company and she told me to email her his resume , which happened in the next 10 minutes.
As I am searching jobs for myself, I am also helping my friend with his job search.
I am…

I need help, please.

Like many others, I can't find a job. The bills are piling up, my husband has dementia and Parkinson's and I'm his sole caretaker. I can't collect unemployment because they consider me a transient worker ( I hopped from one assignment to another). So what's the next step? Do I qualify for State benefits? Where do I find info on that? Who do I ask? I've been sending resumes, filling out job applications,etc. I'm at a loss and I feel like crying…

IT IS TIME

Maybe we need to start something like the #meToo movement. It serves no purpose to suffer in silence. Spilling the beans on how long-term, huge-in-numbers and awful Unemployment has gotten may lead to government action to change things.

The more-than 80 types of distinct taxes each of us paid each year (1) on the money earned, (2) on the risks taken in investments in education and skills and business and (3) on anything bought or sold or owned…

Amen to that Joseph Siewick ! You can count me in. Great, Great Point.

Fired after 20 years and I’m a nurse, then 6 months yet again

I live in a small community. We have one large hospital and I worked for it faithfully for 20 years, literally half my life. Then I was hired working at a smaller cliche hospital about 50 miles away where my life was hell. I never missed a day, showed up early. After working 9.5 years in home health and hospice this was an inpatient unit and I even asked for some more training that I wasn’t given. I made a mistake one night left out some meds…
