Looking for my company “home”. I’m ready to work.

I have a master’s degree and I have changed my résumé so many times. Nobody calls back, I don’t even make it to the interview part. It definitely messes with your mental and I also have been experiencing severe anxiety. I can’t even function like an adult and it doesn’t help that I’m also disabled. Last job pushed me out with no unemployment. I did all the (I was an auto engineer) work I was supposed to and then some. My manager let me go the week that my grandmother had 2 strokes and she knew that. It wasn’t even a real reason. I’m disabled and requested just to be remote because we were hybrid and only came in once a week (people barely came and someone on our team was remote). She said it didn’t seem fair to me keep working like that (I’m still confused by that) and let me go. I’ve been in shambles since. No funds for anything. All my savings are gone. I feel so low. #motivation #help #hireme #unemployed #jobsearch #advice

In person jobs have a better rate of hearing back. I have never heard back from 1 fully remote job in over a year of applying, I have heard back from most in person jobs. I am being very picky this time around, though. These jobs want employees to do everything but not pay a good wage.

Mia, I know EXACTLY how you feel!! I've been looking for a job since TWO DAYS BEFORE THANKSGIVING!! I cannot even begin to tell you how badly I was treated and I was the only one coming in sober Anna not chasing a boyfriend or girlfriend my whole shift!! I have never been with out a job in the 34 years I have worked... sometimes having more than 1 job... amd my husband is disabled so we've really been hit!!! The longer I'm off the more & more depressed & anxious I get!! I'm at the point where I'm scared to leave the house.. I've been so secluded for so long I just feel like nothing amd no body!! I tried for my unemployment for months & gave up! They're always changing rules amd I've never filled before & I thot I'd have a job by now. I've gotten a couple and been asked crazy questions and lied on & I do better on face to face interviews myself, but I can't even get that. Amd forget just walking in and talking to someone!! And then a take these assessments/tests and out puts me out of the running for the job!! I've owned a business, I know how to work w people amd talk to them and I've always worked to do my very best and it seems that is def not what they want now!!! Just had to comment back so that you know you are not alone in the situation and it's not just you and there's nothing wrong with you that somebody else feels the same thing I don't know what to tell you I just want you to know that someone else is thinking about you! I'll say a prayer for you , maybe something will pop up-hopefully for both of us. Take care Mia!

Don't let Anyone ever put you down! You can do something else and don't need them! Sometimes not getting what you want is a blessing in disguise!!!

I’m so sorry to hear this sis…. I feel your pain. I was unemployed since December where I worked in a contract position. I was let go without any reason the week before Christmas! It was brutal. Plus, I have a 10 year old and a disabled mother that I am the primary caregiver of. I’m praying for you. The job market is starting to pick up some. Please keep the faith. 🖤🖤
