I am a jack of a lot of trades and when something is broken I will attempt to repair it and usually do. I have been successful is more than one business in my working life from truck driver to pest control service tech to pest control sales then on to another field of HVAC where success was my middle name .I have done many things and learned very much in my time on this earth and am very proud of it. #handyman #hired #texas #training #inspiration
I just wanted to everyone know that Pret a Manger is always hiring I start on Tuesday . The recruitment office is located on 11 w 42nd street. I applied and a week later i was hired you get full benfits , paid time off and bonuses with 50 percent off meal discount . I say give it try .... Good luck all.
After a seven months of working at a job per diem, I finally got changed to full time with benefits! I am extremely grateful! I got laid off about two years, in that time I jumped from a job to a temp agency. My kids just started college and I am widow. At 59 years old, I applied at a assisted living home and had no hopes of receiving a call back. Then, I got hired, but unfortunately it was per diem and a 45 minute drive from my home. My family and friends thought I was crazy and outside my mind because sometimes I would only work two days a week, but I was determined. One of nurses, noticed that I was not full time and became my advocate. She asked the head of the department to hire me full time ASAP! What seemed like a waste of my time to some was actually a benefit in the end.
Finished my week of training and starting in my new job. I worked for 10 years in the medical field as an ultrasound tech but lost my job when we were bought by a larger company. About the same time, my elderly grandparents needed full time care, so I did that while they provided for me. After they both passed, and then needing a new roof on the house, money was getting tight and I started applying. It seemed no one was interested. I even tried employment agencies. I reworked my resume and got a call from a senior living facility. I had applied for dining room staff with my new resume, even though that wasn't one of my stronger skills. I like working with seniors so I figured it's a good "foot in the door" opportunity. I was asked to interview that same day, and when I met with HR, they offered me a caregiver position. I had mentioned that I had taken care of my grandparents for 5 years. That made a good impression. I took the job. It's not full time but it is what I needed.
The moral of this is maybe not to leave things out of your resume. Something you have done in your life might be a beneficial skill employers are looking for.
Ive had a rough job history and since ive actually been trying to keep myself straight and do whats right and grow up...its been fairly difficult for me to find some one willing to give me a chance ....its taken me 10 months ...but it finally happend! Big Thanks to Bobby...my new Mgr!
Needed to supplement my Teacher Assistant job for the school system and found an Amazon gig (seasonal/part-time!) $18/hr shift differential (working nights over the weekend)
Very excited! Thankful for this community
I will keep this short, but I have been on here since being laid off since March of this year. I assumed the job search would not be as difficult as I have experience in Telecom/IT. I was wrong. I admit I did get some offers to contract, but they were out of state and I could not work those positions as I am a single father and my youngest son just entered high school. I finally got a position with Delta Global Services (DGS). It is subsidiary of Delta Airlines. I walked in, had an interview on the spot next thing I am going through the background/ Drug Test process. Low and Behold I just picked up my airport badge yesterday and training will start next week. I know here in the Atlanta area they are taking walk ins like crazy!! So contact me and I will give you the location information. I wont be making with I was before but, that is ok I just needed to get in the door...I can make my own way after that. Keep your heads up and God Bless!!
