I'm currently in school studying to be a medical office assistant. I'm going for a certification which I will get in about 8 or 9 months. Being an office assistant has been my dream job for many years. I love helping people. I worked as a daycare provider back in the early 90's as a summer job. Volunteered at a mental facility during my high school years. In 2012--2013 I cleaned houses temporarily and haven't worked in over 10 years. I am definitely looking for work until I can become certified as a medical office assistant, as I'm in a domestic abusive relationship situation and in the process of getting out of the situation. I need income for my children and myself. #advice #housing #motivation #education #backtoworkmoms #housekeeper #healthcare

#my résumé only tells you about the career I used to have. #advice I would love to be a greeter at a hair salon or something in that field or a manager etc. I cannot cut hair anymore due to my hands. What careers do you have out there that you do not need your hands? #general #noexperience other than cutting and coloring hair. I’ve worked n this field for over 35 years. #backtoworkmoms #motivation #networking #inspiration #courage #wordsofadvice #jobsearch

I think it is better to stay home. To protect family.

last year we had frozen lasagna. it was great. maybe this will allow us to focus on what these holidays should mean. what we truly have to be grateful for. we have been very poor. but that didn't ruin Christmas.

For the most part, I have been a house wife and mother of 4. I would like to offer my services such as organizing time, scheduling, housekeeping, self motivating skills in this community. My experience entails: cashiering, customer service, some computer skills as well as sales. I am loyal and reliable. I am observant and honest.

I'm 31 & since I was 19 have been a stay at home parent. I've had small part time cashier jobs, truck stop Dollar General... I've also had housekeeping jobs cleaning beach houses and residential homes. But things have changed & I find myself desperately searching for a job that is full time or at least pays enough to cover the few small bills I have. I've put over 50 applications in online because that's how most places want you to apply. I haven't tried applying out of my league, that's next however, but I haven't gotten but 2 calls for an interview! Both interviews seemed to be going well until I was asked about my job history. Needless to say I didn't get either job due to lack of experience. I'm a total people person & was loved by all my coworkers & customers at the few jobs I have had. My resume is short and not very appealing to the people in charge of hiring. If I were given the chance to apply in person and meet some of the managers I feel I'd stand slightly more of a chance than I have applying online. These online applications are sorted through by experience, skill & Lord knows what else but after 50 applications and 0 luck I'm beginning to wonder what I'm lacking.... Any tips on how a single mother with less than 2 years retail/sales experience is supposed to find a job & support her household???

Hello everyone! My name is Mari Elizabeth Walsh and I am frustrated. I am very willing to get to work. However, I live in a very rural area in Southeastern Arkansas and there is literally nothing around that would hire someone with my skills. I have five years of in the office experience with medical and psychiatric transcription. I design documents, spreadsheets, business cards, logos, etc. all using my circa 2006 laptop and Microsoft Office or Adobe. I am interested in virtual assisting, data entry, spreadsheet work, proofreading, actually anything at this moment. I am so frustrated and let down right now. I tried Freelancer and after all the effort I put into it, they wanted $5 per exam to help boost my chances of being hired. Any advice on what to do and where to look for work like I described? Thank you, in advance, for your time and help.
