Well, I know where I’ve been, what I want and am just taking my time to find what works for me. Money isn’t my only interest now.

I'm in this boat. I've been doing healthcare for 20+ years. Every job has been abusive, stressful, short staffed...I'm so burned out I want to get out of the medical field all together. I like to do so many things for fun or hobby but it's always different when you HAVE to do it for pay. I don't want to get into debt for school either.

Looking for a different job.

Hey guys, I just resigned from my teaching job a few days ago. I have been a teacher for almost 20 years, and I'm looking to start a new career. Any advice as I seek new employment?

Looking for work.....

It has been almost a year since I've worked. I've applied to several job openings via the internet....signed up with several temp agencies and still no offers. I've applied for a position with Target, Macy, etc and I get the response that we've reviewed your resume, however, we've decided to pursue other candidates. My previous jobs were in the oil and gas industry....have talked with recruiters and I was told that employers are afraid to hire people like me because they can't afford to pay me what I was making with my previous job and also the fear that I will leave once the oil and gas industry is back. Wow....scrambling trying to figure out what is the next step.

Cant figure it out!

I have 10+ years in sales. I was terminated from my last sales job about 2 years ago and since I started a new trade in maintenance which I understand is completely different. I don't make the money used to and now want to get back into it. I've submitted resumes and have been turned down Every time. I need help getting over this hump.

Thinking about a career change

Recently had a supervisor pin his foul up on me causing me to be removed from my job to another that I have no experience in. Been with this company for about 8 years. Seriously considering a career change because even though I have a valid argument, the higher ups refuse to back me.

I got your back!

There's a big shortage of skilled labor in this country, which could be a great opportunity for you. Check out the list below of some of the highest paying trade-skill jobs in America. Most of them pay $22-$29 an hour, and there are many local and state programs that will let you train in them for FREE. Lots of people complain about the government not doing enough to help out, but this is a great opportunity. Go to your local career center and ask if there are any trade-skill programs near you.

Something Better...

My name is Ryan and I'm looking for a better opportunity if its out there. I'm currently working at Target Distribution in Indianapolis, Indiana. The pay isn't bad but the management is. I been there for almost a year now. I'm not gonna go into detail but I went through a lot of stuff involving a manager for months. They finally fired him and transferred me to a different department. But the damage has been done and it has left a bad taste in my mouth. I want to work for a company who actually value their employees and know how to treat them with respect. I am located in Indianapolis, Indiana. Willing and able to work for a company that pays and treats me well. Please contact me.
