Has anyone seen this video? It's pretty adorable - this little one befriends his local garbage men and gives them gifts on holidays and everything. I think it just speaks to the kindness that everyone has, and shows how appreciative people are for a job well done!

Hey jobcasers! I hope the day for u ALL went well! As I read through the feed of some posts, I notice too much debating ( some points NOT well thought out!) and much negativity. This shouldn't be due to the nature of some peoples issues! We must be kind one to ANOTHER! All of us expect kindness when things have gone array! Treat, communicate to others as you wish to be treated/ spoken to! Karma! Each one teach one! Blessings!
Hello fellow Jobcasers! I have recently posted some questions regarding unemployment to our community and I have encountered a barrage of mixed replies. Many have been positive and sincere, and many have been downright rude and degrading. I was raised on the Southside of Chicago, and my religion has molded me into the man I am today. I was always told that my faith in God will lead me on the path that was written for me. Lately, I have noticed that there are many people here on Jobcase that feel the need to kick somebody down when their written story has caused them to wander off course, but everyday, I strive to make an impact in at least one persons life through positivity and love. Being unemployed and not able to provide I have learned many things. I have learned that no matter how many applications and failed interviews I have been on, God will put me back on my path. We all need guidance from some sort of entity, whether it is from a friend or family member, or even a stranger on Jobcase whom you've never met. Show compassion, as you may not know what somebody is really going through. To those of you who are having a hard time finding work, I pray for you, as I am side by side with you on this journey. We will find our way. Avoid all negativity, and know that by having faith, you WILL find your way back to the script that He has planned out. God bless to you all.
Keep a "Blessing bag" in your car in case you find someone in need. You can make these up with items from the Dollar Tree such as gloves, thermal socks, beef sticks, crackers, candy bars, toothpaste, toothbrush, wipes, deodorant, snacks and other items that may help someone who is homeless or in a bad way. It is just a thoughtful, inspiring thing to do.
Random acts of kindness take very little to change the life of just one person. hashtag#inspiration hashtag#bekind hashtag#coldweather hashtag#humanitarian hashtag#ahandup hashtag#love
Happy Tuesday Jobcasers! I hope your weeks are off to great starts filled with interviews, or starting the dream jobs you’ve landed.
I wanted to take a moment and address something that has really been bugging me lately... It’s the amount of negativity within our community that can often translate to bullying. Yes, we sometimes think our fellow members are whining, or they’re not trying hard enough, or they have a situation way less severe than yours. And you think to yourself "how could their issues possibly be any worse than mine?". But that’s the wrong attitude and I want to remind you of something.. Just because you or I might not understand someone else’s plight or struggle, doesn’t make it any less real, painful or stressful. We all feel things differently because (and here is where the beauty of Jobcase comes through) we are all DIFFERENT!
There are going to be times when you'll see a fellow member has posted on a topic that you may not necessarily agree with. And your immediate gut reaction is to post exactly what's on your mind, in that exact moment, which will most likely result in a response that is full of every emotion you're feeling (frustration, anger, etc.) in that moment. Instead, hit your internal pause button and take the time to answer in a thoughtful way that is devoid of negative thoughts and emotions. This was you can post a response that offers feedback or advice in a positive tone that is coming from a good place, and often constructive.
Jobcase was built as an avenue to build each other up while giving honest and CONSTRUCTIVE feedback… Jobcase was not built to break each other down. We're see far too much of this breaking down lately, and it’s got to stop. As I said above, we are ALL in this together and we need each other.
Lastly.. As the bible and the golden rule both say in one form or another.. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. Let’s keep that in mind here when we’re responding to posts or posting our own.
I’d love to hear your thoughts..
Hi everyone, I have seen jobcase "morph" into something that I"m quite sure it wasn't designed to be or emulate. I, and so many others, come here to help each other, give advice, seek work, etc. I am simply asking that we stay on course to whatever the presenter is posing as a "problem." Sometimes, we note that their spelling is incorrect of their sentence structure is incorrect, however, we can easily correct with compassion, yes? I like to go to youtube to vent or laugh and I talk about a myriad of things. On JOBCASE, I"m simply asking for those seeking work/advice and for those of us who respond, to please respond kindly. You can be firm in your kindness but sans cuss words or any other kind of disparaging verbiage. We in America have the 1st Amendment, therefore, you can speak as you wish...this is just a kind request.
Thank you, Let's help those seeking jobs, find jobs and those who feel hopeless....let's be the hope for the hopeless.
Cheers and take care, Mitch
I helped an elderly man count his money out.. Poor thing, his eye sight is almost 100% gone and he handed me a 50 dollar bill thinking it was a 20 dollar bill.. I handed the 50 back and asked him if he needed help counting his money.. I told him to be careful for now on because the next person wont be so kind and trustworthy. .
When Garrick, a Southwest Airlines flight attendant, found himself in the position to help a passenger in need, he went above and beyond the call of duty. I wanted to share another GREAT customer service story [here is the other in case you missed it] (https://www.jobcase.com/conversations/9c45f11a-047c-5e12-872f-74adb228817c)!
Nine-year old Gabby, a type 1 diabetic, was severely anxious about being on an airplane. Garrick, a Southwest crew member, worked throughout the flight to make her more comfortable, bringing her special drinks and trying to make her laugh after he noticed her struggling during takeoff. When the plane hit a serious patch of turbulence, he let her sit in the empty seat next to him, talked to her about his daughter (the same age as Gabby), about her pets, her school, and even let her grab his arm for comfort.
At the end of the flight, Garrick used the PA to tell the whole plane that his new friend — Gabby — had just overcome her fear of flying, and that she deserved a round of applause from the whole plane. “The whole plane clapped for her,” her mother reported afterwards, “It was a wonderful experience on Southwest. We are forever grateful to have met such a beautiful, selfless soul.”
This story reminds us that in ANY job we are doing, we can ALWAYS make a difference.
Happy customer service week!!
I love Christmas-time. I am blessed with great memories of the holiday and I am blessed with a healthy happy family which loves the season as well. But I am well aware that the happiest of circumstances can get stressed by the commercial holiday pressures, and by end of year reflections. Also, it has been said that the holidays magnify things - and if you are in a difficult situation, it can make it feel even more lonely and full of despair. And often desperation and difficulty is invisible to others.
I came to understand how it is impossible to understand the burdens that others carry one rainy day in 1999- the morning of my mothers funeral. I sat momentarily composed at a breakfast with my father, realizing that all the other happy folks around us had no idea how shattered our world had become. Our burdens were invisible to them. And who knows what burdens other patrons in that restaurant carried that day that were invisible to us?
So I imagine how many burdens others carry this holiday season that are invisible to to each of us. Certainly many are work related - directly or indirectly. And many others. But the great thing is that WE ALL CAN HELP! The smallest act of kindness can make the difference. Lets all commit to Jobcasers putting out great karma with small acts of kindness this season. Wave somebody into your line of traffic, give the cashier a nice smile at checkout, invite coworkers that you might not normally think of to join you at lunch for work,help someone get an interview or a good praise here on Jobcase, drop a toy into Toys-for-Tots basket- or any other small act of kindness that occurs throughout your day.
I'm enough of a dreamer to believe that this really will make the world a bit better. And with 65 million Jobcase members, if we all do it - maybe a LOT better!
So I hope you are enjoying the season too, I hope you are able to bear the invisible burdens you carry, and I hope you will join me in committing to a few small acts of kindness each day to help others with their burdens too!
