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

Lyft Driving in Los Angeles, CA Lyft Driver Code: TIFFANY57571

Los Angeles, CA Lyft Driver Code: TIFFANY57571

For those of you who have access to a vehicle and insurance that supports Ride Share, try Lyft. I went out my first night and made 63.00 early this morning my friend needed a Lyft ride to the airport and i made another 27. Lyft does take a partial commission, but its minimal at best, its like 25%. Lyft offers freedom of flexibility, work when you want to, and they offer express pay in case you need money right away and dont want to wait for payday (the fee is like $0.50, you do have to have more than 5.00 in your Lyft account to withdraw)

I love it, my fiance has been driving longer than me and he already made enough to cover our bills in just a couple of days. My favorite part is the fact that I get to keep 100% of my tips, as Lyft only takes its commission from the fare cost. At the end of literally 4 hours of actual drive time I made 90 and that was on my first time out.

This isn't a replacement for a regular job, but guys let me tell you it does set my mind at ease that I have something coming in to handle my smaller bills and the better part is that when I get my new job I can work this around that schedule, hell I can even get a part time job and work the schedules out and if I dont feel like driving, no problem there isn't a boss to answer to...except myself.

Like many I was really skeptical about it and reading some of the negative stories and reviews of Lyft, most of them are unfounded at best. However I will warn you it is what you put into it. We are private contractors, and it is commission based, but Lyft has a better community and you get to rate the passengers. I would love to tell you more, but....well see for yourself, and if nothing else its a great way to make extra Christmas Cash for the holidays that are coming up. Just give it a try. Use the referral code at the beginning of this message

Good luck! I hope it helps.

A Peace of advise for young people.

One area I would encourage young people who are still in high school or just graduated. Find yourself an internship dedicated to high schoolers or recent grads. It will give you experience and give you an opportunity to discover if you want a job in that chosen industry or not before you plop down a lot of time and money in education.

It does work. I have a good friend. She got a internship at a navy shipyard who does maintenance for most of the ships in the US fleet on the west coast while she was still in high school. She discovered she had the knack for electrical work. After high school she then applied to the apprentice program for this shipyard. Thanks to her internship. It give her a leg up in the hiring process.

Even now these many years later. She is still working for the yard. Now for a major contractor for the shipyard. Still loving her job, and what she is doing.

There are many opportunities like this if you nose around. Both in the public and private sectors. It may lead to a job out of high school or at the very least point you in the right direction. Or even get yourself a good mentor you can guide you in your professional development.

I myself wished I had gone this direction.

Good luck!

So hard getting job with Autism

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.
