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.

Want to know what questions are good to ask, during an interview? Check out this article @Jennifer Young posted about 20 smart questions to ask a hiring manager , to get you started! #interview #interviewquestions #gettinghired #interviewprocess #application #jobapplication

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
