For anyone who went to ISU

I recently stumbled across this great resource for those who go to / went to ISU: https://careercenter.illinoisstate.edu/hire/

As a reminder, reaching out to fellow alumni (even if from a training program - doesn't have to be a university) is a great way to network and find a job!

Plus you can work with the Jobcase community too to network, we're here to help!

LOOKING FOR WORK

I am a healthy 81-year-old who has been running a non-profit organization in the area. (www.sea-legs.org) But the virus has shut us down completely and I need work to supplement my income . Such work must allow me to honor the isolation called for in the protocols, I write well and edit other writing constructively. My pre-retirement profession was teacher and college professor. I have a Ph.D. in Educational Research from The Union of Expropriating Colleges and Universities.

I am a senior level executive office manager. Just lost my job. Single mother of three children. Never been unemployed for over 40 years. Absolutely insane how everything is done online, no face to face. How do companies find good help? HR departments DON’T call you back. I have a BA degree in Business. Need a job quickly!

Get your resume up to par. Make sure it's a .pdf less than 2 pages just keep it high level. Get on as many job boards as possible, make filling out apps your new fulltime job. You have to play the numbers. Get in touch with as many headhunters as possible and try temp agencies. Network as much as you can. It's been my experience it's all who you know to get work these days. Reach out to old colleagues and clients. Be willing to make less money and learn something new.

Hi Melinda, I thought this article provided some helpful insight into looking for a job in today's world. Also I would suggest connecting with a few staffing companies that specialize in the type of work you are looking for. The recruiters can guide you through your job search and they will have relationships with companies already. Best of luck to you!

Same storm, diff boats

We know this crisis is NOT impacting us all the same. Here is how unemployment rates breakdown the differences. We are working on products and services to help everyone navigate and are very much focused on helping rebalance where possible.
One thing we all need to do for ourselves - keep gaining skills & knowledge. We encourage everyone to become a “continuous learner” . Education of all kinda helps your marketability. It shows up in every study. It shows up in these unemployment rates. It’s something you can proactively pursue. Maybe start at khan academy. Start w one course, one skill. It doesn’t really matter where or what, it matters when, when will you work to learn more - and hopefully that answer for you (As it should be for me and everyone these days) is ‘’now” #strongerTogether #education

Expand your earnings horizon? new collar?

One of the tenets of Jobcase is that we all have to drive our own career success in this new world of work (jobcasers are here to help one another do that). Good news in this #coronavirus moment is that a lot of companies are stepping forward with programs to help.
I dont believe 4-year degrees are going to be as required in the next decade as they have been in the past (in order to get a living wage or better job). Here is a good resource IBM has launched to see if you might be right for careers in IT that don't require a 4 year degree. If you think tech is interesting and thinking of how to get yourself into a new path toward higher earnings - this might be worth your time to check it out... #StrongerTogether #tech #education #newstart #opportunity

How I became a Home Health Aide

I knew I wanted a rewarding career with great pay and growth opportunities - so I decided to become a home health aide (HHA)!! Its such an amazing career.

I help people who are suffering from a disability or illness by providing care in their home. I work with a lot of elderly patients and people with chronic illnesses. I do things like oversee medication, take vital signs, and change bandaging. I also help with housekeeping, bathing, and meal prep.

Here’s how I did it:

  1. I got my highschool diploma
  2. I volunteered at a local hospital to gain some experience
  3. I enrolled in a certificate program at a community college
  4. I completed my training hours
  5. I got state certified

Be sure to check YOUR state’s requirements, because it varies! https://www.homehealthaideguide.com/hha-training/states/

Looks like yet another way for people to offer you something only to steal your personal information and take what little we all have now
