I am looking for a job in Human Resources preferably in Benefits. I have a Masters Degree in Management focusing on HR and have a few years, part-time, project based HR experience. I would like to network with any HR professionals, Recruiters, or Hiring Manager based in the Seattle area on here. I recognize there might not be any openings in HR right now with the companies these individuals represent. However by connecting with other HR professionals, my goal is to be considered should such an opportunity come up.
Thank you Sincerely Jason Shaw
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.
I have a phone interview with an employer today for a Diversity Compliance Program Manager's position. I'm super nervouse, and would love some encouragement as well as possible questions to ask the hiring manager, other than, "when do I start"?
Thanks in advance.
Why would someone who successfully completed 410 probation in Illinois still show up as a convicted felon on a background check
I was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance, and was offered 410 probation. Being that it was my first charge and I didn't want a felony conviction on my record I accepted the plea of guilty in order to obtain 410 probation and keep my record clean after the 2 years of probation was completed. Since that time i've been fired from many jobs and have been rejected after many interviews without an explanation as to why, until this evening. I was told by a potential employer this evening that they just received my background check in, but because I have a felony conviction my application has to be run through the h.r. office before I can be approved for hire. This has been very upsetting for myself and my family and has been placing a lot of strain on my relationship with my fiancée and I because I haven't been able to hold down any significant form of employment. If someone can please help me and send me in the right direction I would be forever greatful, I thought this was something that had been put behind me when in fact it been holding me back all this past year without my knowledge.
First of all I am looking for a new job before anyone says look for a job. My current employer just paid everyone for our regular payroll schedule. I noticed that my check was cut in half for the previous pay. I thought it was a mistake so I contacted our payroll department. When I explained what happen to my pay as I seen it. They informed me that they were notified from my Manager that I had accepted a 50% pay cut. Confused by this because why would anyone accept a 50% pay cut. I asked them to provide me a copy of the signed contract stating that I had accepted the cut. Payroll told me that they had not received anything but a verbal from my manager. They told me that I had accepted the pay cut because why would my manager lie to them. I than asked them for a copy of my employment contract and they said they did not have it. I have to contact Human Resources. I contacted Human Resources and they sent me a copy of my contract which I signed 10 years ago because that was the only thing they had. When I told them I was confused about the pay cut and was told that payroll explained that my manager verbally told them to cut my pay. HR told me to tread lightly on the accusations because if I put in a complaint I will automatically be terminated for lying. If I complain to the labor board with prove I will be terminated for something made up. The company has no actions in my HR personnel file since I requested a copy of it and HR sent me an email explaining there was nothing there. What do I do besides looking for a job and dealing with a substainal pay cut.
Congrats. You had the job interview. Now, your work is done, right? Wrong. In today’s extremely competitive job market, effective follow-up after the interview is a must, and failing to do it could affect your chances at landing the job.

I was finally offered a job and the h.r. person faxed me a letter of acceptance to sign. I signed it and was sent a copy of their 50 page handbook and rules, along with a consent form for a background check and drug test. After I signed the letter, took the drug test, and consented to a background check; which all came back good, I was emailed and told to start July 5th.
I am thrilled, because I have been out of work forever, as it seems; and was beginning to lose hope! That was yesterday, but then this morning, another company called me and scheduled me for an interview that will be at 4pm today; eastern standard time. This job pays almost 2 bucks more, and I think I will like it better, but I have only interviewed over the phone with them, and that was Monday, and pretty much the same day, they emailed me back to come in for a second interview, which will be in person!
I have applied to them several times over the course of 2 years and to finally get a callback, I am ecstatic!
I am taking it that 2 interviews means a good sign, and if I am offered a job, how should I let the original company know my decision, but in a tactful way? I don't want to burn bridges, because I actually applied last to this job a few months ago;, but at the time, only second shift was open & I need 3rd. The h.r. person kept my record on file and sure enough, when night shift opened, I was one of the first people called.
I was done a big favor, because normally after 3 months, I would have had to reapply and go through the whole process again, I was able to skip that all that, and go straight for an interview with the hiring managers and take a tour.
I feel like a favor was done for me and I don't want to seem ungrateful to the h.r person or the company, but at the end of the day, I stand to make a lot more money at the other company and enough where I can get some things done that I have not been able to for me and my kids.
I am divorced with 5 kids to raise on my own and although I think both jobs will be good for me, I want to take the one that pays more.
