In the year 2022, we find ourselves more connected than ever, due to social media and the internet. My parents, some aunts and uncles and even friends have found themselves not really trusting social media because they've heard about awful experiences some have had.

But, if we spend so much of our time on the internet, talking to people, looking for jobs, doing our jobs, why not use it to our advantage?

Check out @Kai Dickerson article on How your social media activity impacts your job search.

Find out how having a positive social media presence (and a Jobcase account!), can be used to elevate you! #jobsearch #socialmedia #jobapplication

A career mentor once ask me "what is the point of going through an interview, if you don’t get to ask questions of your own?". Her point of view was that sometimes asking the interviewer questions about:

  • Company culture
  • Team dynamics
  • Manager benchmarks

DURING the interview is the only time you’ll get the chance to know if you truly want the job before the job is offered to you, because you get to compare your expectations with reality. From there you can make a decision on whether you liked the environment described or not. Remember, it’s not just the company making a decision here, you are too.

I have been working for almost 20 years, and the one thing that has been a constant from that first job as a Cashier at Bruegger’s Bagels to now, is the request for job references. In my experience, 9/10 if an application asks for a reference or two, and you are one of the top candidates for the job that potential employer will make the calls. This is why I have always made it a case to do my job well, but also build good rapport with team members and supervisors. These are some of the best people that can help vouch for you, which is why having references is so important.

Wanna know how to identify and ask people to be your references?

You might assume that you have to meet every single requirement on a job positing in order to apply, but you really don’t!

The general rule of thumb is that if you meet 7 out of 10 requirements on a posting, and you’re very interested in the job, YOU SHOULD APPLY!

Check out these tips for applying to a job when you don’t meet all of the requirements 🙌

Good luck and follow me on TikTok and Instagram (@yourstoryunwritten) and Jobcase for more #careeradvice 💫

I'm a freshman in university at buffalo. . My mom has recently lost her job even tho she's looking for new one but I can't just pressure her as I need to support my family so I've been looking for job . I also went to the places near me to ask if they're hiring everytime I ask them they tell me to apply online and even tho I apply online nobody calls me. I don't know what should I do. Any advice would be really appreciated #disappointed #jobapplication

So, who here thinks its redundant that a employer expects you to not only supply a resume, but also fill out the very same information in application form? Kind of a waste of resources and time. It should be one or the other. Not both.

I am a 17 year old female in highschool, graduate of 2019. I regret to say that I have no experience with a job due to no time with my education. I am willing to put time and much effort into working efficiently while juggling school like a pro #jobsearch #jobapplication #experience #highschool

THIS is a short summary the typical #Walmart #JobApplication and Interview selection process based on my recent Walmart application experience. FIRST Walmart Interview Question I was asked, “Describe a time when I went above and beyond to provide customer service”. It sounds like a standard interview question that you can get away answering with any general customer service experience but Walmart interviewers are looking for a detailed step-by-step account of what YOU did to turn a bad customer experience into an Awesome customer service experience. EXPRESS Yourself clearly at all times and add your personal insight & philosophy on excellent customer service during the interview. Don’t be afraid to inject your thoughts and ideas on what it takes to be a good customer service employee. Remember the Walmart application and Interview process is all about identifying what makes you the best Customer Service candidate. Like helping people? Prove it!! TAKE PERSONAL INVENTORY, Know Thyself, and be ready to explain how you can transition previous job duties and experiences to the task and responsibilities of the Walmart job you're applying for. Example: “I feel that my previous experience as the OSHA Compliance Officer and Inventory Specialist for my department makes me an excellent candidate for the Walmart Overnight Maintenance position. EMPHASIZE your focus on the Big Picture and use career-oriented statements in your questions and answers. The Managers I spoke with began their Walmart Careers at entry level positions like cashiers and quickly promoted to leadership roles from within. Make sure you share your interest to grow within the Walmart Family; but only if it’s Sincere!!

I've read many post from other members about Walmart application concerns and questions so I thought I would quick tips on what helped me get to the Walmart interview phase of the hiring process: A. Complete the Walmart Application & Assessment - The #Walmart #JobApplication is long (about 1hr) so use a lap or desktop instead of your IPhone or Android and have the last 10 years of your Employment History with 3 Professional References ready before you begin. B. Call the Store(s) - call the #Walmart store(s) you applied to directly and ask to speak to the Personnel Manager. Explain you just sent you Walmart application online and you want to verify it was received. Use the time to ask if they're currently hiring and sell your skills, work experience, and qualifications. C. Be Persistent - The Personnel Manager is responsible for setting up the interview with management so make a note of his/her name and check in frequently by calling or personally visiting the store to demonstrate your interest in the job. I applied to 3 stores in Dec/2015 and called all the stores back in mid Jan/2016 to follow-up on my job application but was told they weren’t hiring until Feb. The 2nd week of Feb I got called in for interviews at all three locations and one of the interviews turned into a Service Manager offer. The Walmart job application process to get #hired can be time consuming but rewarding if you’re pursuing a retail career opportunity with Walmart. Good Luck!
