I'm having such a hard time looking for work. Sometimes I really sit back and wonder if I'm doing something wrong with my job search. Was it the way I formatted my job resume or my work history? Are these jobs really hiring? Why so many job postings with super long wait time for a response back? I feel like throwing my degree in the trash sometimes. What's the point? And now funds are getting tight for me and I had to actually pawn a few of my valuables just so i can pay off some late bills. Our economy and job searching sucks. :( #jobsearch #advice #application
UPDATE: I guess it's just the timing of how long companies will reply back but I GOT HIRED! Found great permanent opprtunity near where I live that matches my experience. Thanks to everyone who tried helping me but I'm officially done with job searching. #hired

LIKE REALLY I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED AND I JUST STOPED TEXTING AND THEY HAVE BEEN CALLING ME FOR ALMOST 3 WEEKS NOW EVERY HOUR ON THE HOUR ASKING ME TO BUY THAT STUPIS THING SO ......and not to mention I thought I had a job but I don't😮💨 back to the job search again #jobsearch #interview #followup #advice #scams #application #hired
I was offered a job at a company and had been working there for about a month. Being only a month in, I was still in my training period. Then I received a voicemail from the same person who initially offered me a job with another job offer for the same position. Then the following week, I was let go (I wasn't given any specifics other than under performance which was never brought to my attention once by any of the floor managers). So it seems like the hiring manager didn't realize I had already been working at the company and, if I took the new job offer, I would essentially be replacing myself. So the question is, should I take up the new job offer as if I were a completely new candidate? If so, how should I go about doing so? #jobsearch #advice #termination #management #hired #followup #confusion #joboffer
Once you've landed a job, the hard work isn't over. Adjusting to a new workplace can feel overwhelming, between meeting colleagues, learning about the company and getting into a routine in your role. But being a new hire doesn't have to be so stressful, writes Fast Company. To help set yourself up for success in the first month of a new position, here are four strategies:
• Learn your manager's expectations and establish how success will be measured.
• Establish good habits early, such as forming an organization system.
• Build relationships with your co-workers and create a positive reputation.
• Learn as much as you can about the company to ease your transition.
