The tale of two job markets

According to an article on Forbes job seekers are seeing very different job search results - depending upon whether they're a blue or white collar worker.

Blue collar workers are seeing more jobs posted and getting hired at a much faster rate than their white collar counter parts.

Much of the difference is money - it costs more to bring in a new white collar worker, and even more to keep them.

While there is a little comfort in knowing "its not me" in your job hunt, comfort doesn't pay bills.

I need to share how heart-wrenching it is to hunt for a job. It's reached a point where I'm on the brink of homelessness. Can anyone offer advice in this tough spot? Your insights might just be the lifeline I need. #JobHunt #HelpNeeded

Title: Embracing Self-Belief During Your Job Hunt

Hello everyone,

In today's post, we're addressing an issue that many of us have faced or will face at some point in our lives - the job hunt. It can be a challenging time, filled with uncertainty, rejection, and self-doubt. However, it's during these times that believing in ourselves becomes crucially important.

Job hunting is more than just a series of applications and interviews. It is a test of perseverance, patience, and self-belief. It highlights our vulnerabilities and challenges our resilience. But remember, it's during these moments of doubt that we have the opportunity to grow the most.

Believing in yourself might seem difficult, particularly when facing rejection or silence from potential employers. But remember, every 'no' is just one step closer to a 'yes'. Every unsuccessful application is a chance to learn, to refine your approach, to better understand your strengths and weaknesses.

Self-belief isn't about convincing yourself that you're perfect. It's about acknowledging your potential, recognizing your skills, and understanding that you have value to offer. It's about facing challenges with a mindset of growth, rather than a fear of failure.

Here are a few strategies to help boost your self-belief during your job hunt:

  1. Reflect on Past Successes: Remember times when you've succeeded or overcome challenges in the past. Use these experiences as reminders of your capabilities and resilience.

  2. Positive Affirmations: Start your day with positive affirmations. Tell yourself that you are skilled, capable, and deserving of a good job. This can help reinforce a positive self-perception.

  3. Learn and Improve: Use each rejection as an opportunity to learn and improve. Seek feedback, refine your resume, practice your interview skills, and continue to enhance your knowledge and skills.

  4. Surround Yourself with Positivity: Surround yourself with positive influences - people who inspire you, who believe in you, and who can provide support and encouragement during challenging times.

  5. Take Care of Your Well-being: Regular exercise, a healthy diet, and sufficient sleep can all help maintain your physical health and mental resilience.

Remember, your worth is not defined by the number of job rejections you receive. Believe in yourself, stay persistent, and keep putting your best foot forward. Your determination and self-belief will guide you to the right opportunity.

Stay strong, stay positive, and keep believing in yourself. Your perfect job is just around the corner.

According to ABC News, a study showed that 💥Mondays💥 are the best day to apply for a job, increasing the chances of moving forward in the hiring process. Conversely, Saturdays are the worst day for job applications. See you tomorrow, Opportunity! #jobsearch #application #advice #jobhunt #lookingforajob ✴️Source: Business News Daily

Have you given careful thought about working from home? Yes, I know, everyone's doing it. The pandemic forced a huge part of the workforce to work from home but have you ever considered doing it or what it might take?

Here are a few helpful hints to help you get started:

  1. You will need a dedicated workspace or area. It can mean simply setting up a work desk or dedicating an extra room as an office.

  2. It would also be helpful to set up scheduled work hours. This can help you manage your time and your day. You can easily fall into the habit of working anytime and all the time. I recommend using a schedule and timers to keep you on track (and also to help you remember to take breaks---it's easy to get caught up in bad habits when working from home).

Please feel free to add any beginner steps for those who want to start working from home in the comments.

This post was inspired from a Jobcase member who was asking about the pros and cons of Remote Work. That blog post was written by @Allyse Boitnott and can be accessed here: https://www.jobcase.com/questions/50004054-d972-4ec9-955f-72d09979d645

In this post, let's delve in to the pros and cons of Remote Work:

Pros:

  1. The ability to literally work from anywhere (for many but not all jobs)
  2. Ability to create a better work/life balance.
  3. No more commute.
  4. Savings on lunch, gas, etc.....
  5. Independence

Cons

  1. Isolation (many people miss working with other people)
  2. The tendency to overwork (not having the disciplined 9-5 work hours)
  3. Can be difficult to stay motivated.
  4. There may be more distractions, working from home.

I think the above points can give you an idea of everything you should consider in doing remote work. There are many things to consider such as your personal temperament as well as your own personal strengths and weaknesses.

My first post on this topic is also available for you to peruse here: https://www.jobcase.com/conversations/d7d80ad5-0803-426d-9e65-123c56cae975

Please feel free to leave your own comments on other pros and cons on remote work. I look forward to reading them.

There are many folks here on Jobcase looking for remote work. There are still many opportunities available. One of the easiest places to look is right here on Jobcase. At the top of the page, you'll see a tab for "Resources," click on that link to be taken to the Resource Center.

Can't see the tab, click here: https://www.jobcase.com/ru/job-readiness-getting-hired-resource-center

There are also plenty of resources on the internet to help you on your journey. There are sites dedicated to remote work. Some are free and others are offered on a subscription basis (the nice things about these sites are that you can usually start on them with a free trial) Here are a few to get you started:

  1. Remote.co (FREE--find all kinds of remote work and learn about online courses)

  2. Remoteok.com (FREE--find a remote job anywhere; notable companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Apple have posted there)

  3. Remoteleaf.com (Free Trial)

Another great resource is word of mouth. If you have friends or family working remotely, ask about jobs at their companies. Oftentimes, we overlook this great resource. Many employers have employed hybrid models (half-remote and half in the office). There is still quite a bit of flexibility in the workforce, especially because of the triple threats of COVID, the flu and RSV.

I'll be adding more posts on this topic, so be on the lookout! Season Greetings and Enjoy! #jobsearch #jobhunt #remotework #wordsofadvice
