#College is an idiotic waste of time and resources. Take from someone who has two degrees. I am more unemployable now then I was before college. Its not worth it. Skip college and do something else. Only go if its required by low that you have to have a college degree to do the job you want. Start a business, get an apprenticeship, a high school internship. So many other options out their that won't put you into massive debt and waste many years of your employable life.

Its so bloody hard. If you are high functioning. Employers expect you to be ether an engineer or programmer. If you are not in the technical fields similar to those. People see you as a liability or view you as a fake. When so many jobs base their hiring on personalty and emotinal intelligence. It gets even harder.

I wish I knew what it was like to make more then minimum wage. All I get is low wage work. People wonder why I hate having Autism. Why I loath all the debt I got into in college. It never ends. All jobs I apply for unless its a low wage job with no other applicants. I never get the position. It matters not what the job is. Or people want me to work for free.

Whether you have been at a job for ages, or unemployed for some time, jumping back up into the job search game can be super nerve wracking. Take it from me, before being happily employed at Jobcase, I was at another place for almost 9 years. That was a good chunk of my career, the majority of it actually.

I grew up in that place, got to try new things, meet great people, but I was ready to spread my wings and do something new. This meant that I had to now worry about dusting off my old resume, updating it with what I’ve been up to, talking to people to see what’s out there. It was definitely scary and exhausting. The preparation phase alone felt like a lot of steps, let alone when I actually started applying, that felt like a part time job in itself.

If you are gearing up to start looking, check out this great article on how to Restart your job search. My favorite part of the article are the tips on the elevator pitch, because if you’re anything like me, you’re not a fan of talking about yourself.

Hope this is helpful! #jobsearch #application #resume #motivation #careerdiscovery #unemployment #stressful #employment

Hi April, If you have applied to jobs, make sure you are always following up a couple days after. These are the people the employers are more likely to hire as they see they are willing to work for the job. We are all here as a community to help each other with our job searches.

Hey April, I think Alyssa had a good thought here. You look like you have a really solid profile set up, so its just a a matter of the numbers game. If you apply to 2-3 jobs each day and then followup quickly to confirm they "received your application', and then about a week later followup to see "if you are being considered for the opening and, if so, when you might schedule time with the hiring manager" - then after a few weeks you'll have over 50 apps in and the interviews will follow! In the meantime, Jobcase tries to help by connecting Jobcasers with Jobcasers to figure out new listings or tips on how to get into different jobs/interview process. We also try to give tools to make it easier such as:

  • Better job listings without advertisement distractions --Jobcase crawls the web each night to gather about 6 million job listings - we also try to make it easy to include listings from job boards we like - such as Indeed, Careerbuilder or glassdoor.
  • ability to link all your accounts in the myinfo-settings section so that wherever you like to search you can keep track of it and get back with 1 click
    • ability to always have your resume at the ready so long as you have your phone. with just a couple taps you can send your resume to anyone you happen to meet that knows of a job opening.
    • reviews to help discover best job and interview approaches. We gather them at the local level and partner with our friends at Glassdoor to publish the general reviews as well
    • abiltiy to start and manage your own groups - public or private - to help support each other in our work-lives.

This is your platform to better maximize your earning potential by providing a platform to connect with other Jobcasers who can help and tools to help you manage. Hope this helps. We will be integrating more and more direct employers on here as we move into the fall. In the meantime, hope you have success in finding that perfect next gig! Best of luck, we are all rooting for you! Fred
