I need to help her!!

My younger sister has been working at Lowe's for over a year and loved her job but then they laid her off. Is there anyone else that has been laid off? I am not sure what advice to give her. I am a truck driver and we never seem to run out of work. I know she is feeling down and I wish I could help her more. Any ideas???

What you do if you 55 and laid off?

After working at the company for many years I was laid off. Although I have experience it is hard to find a job. A phone interview is ok but not in person. Employers do not believe that humans can learn after 50. Because I am a human I do not know EVERYTHING but if you could give me a chance I will learn and I will do well. After applying to so many positions and 2.5 years in I give up. If the economy does not want me so be it. If you see me in the park or sleeping under the bridge just know I am not an addict. I am a hardworking person but I am too old to be hired and too old to for your 20-30 culture. I would look for something else but frankly, the tech is all I know. Thank you for your thoughts. #ageism #laidoff #python #careerchange #training #technology #certification #jobsearch #womanintech

I believe you have a pretty good chance. A temp agency tried to screw over my unemployment about 30 years ago. I was briefly unemployed and had worked for them for 8 hours (to the tune of about $40) one Saturday when I was still at Uni. I was already working three part-time jobs at the time and Saturday was my only day off. About a week or so after I filed for unemployment, a woman from the temp agency phoned. We had a 'friendly chat' about what my "ideal position" would be. I described something along the lines of what I had been doing...as I'd graduated Uni... something full-time in the financial sector. That was it. I received notification a few days later of this lousy temp agency challenging my UI claim on the grounds that I had "refused work"! It still kinda makes me angry, now that I think about it. They never offered me work or even spoke about anything they might have available. After UI did their fact finding mission, my unemployment was granted... though I didn't recoup the losses I incurred during their investigation. Afterwards, the woman at EDD told me that it was "typical" for past employers to challenge UI claims. SMH... it's BS and I still recall the anxiety I felt... even a sense of betrayal...at the temp agency's claim. You'll get through it, though. It will no doubt work out in your favour. Peace.

What I learned from Adapt Programs is Time Management. Being a Counselor our Individual Counseling was 15 minutes instead of what i was trained. Every company is different. #education #motivation #career #inspiration #laidoff #remoteworker #healthcare #coworkers

Downgrade live to what your means or worth. If you can't afford to eat steak then get steak-ems. If you can't afford to live in a $100,000 house then move to one you can afford. Your welcome for the advice Adam

I have recently been laid off from my position as a Sales and Service advisor for a non-profit educational travel company. I am looking for a position as an advisor, team lead, or supervisor. Are there any suggestions that can be made to assist in my search? #laidoff #advice

Have a vacation coming up. When do I let interviewers know?

I was laid off from my job a few months ago and I've been a major procrastinator with applying for new ones. I had been finishing up a couple classes, so I wasn't in a super hurry to do it. I have a vacation coming up that's been planned and paid for a few months, but there's a few jobs that have recently popped up I'm interested in. I really want to submit my resume but I'm concerned they'll want to interview me while I'm gone. Should I be letting someone know I'll be gone for a certain period and, if so, how do i do that?
