I see so much good advice, suggestions and ideas as I scroll through this group, but I don't see many responses from those who post in this group. That does puzzle me. I understand what someone goes through when he or she is released back into the free-world and are unemployed. So if I may, I would like to provide a piece of my own advice. I am one who has also stood at the corner of frustration, disgust, self-pity, loneliness, worthless, incapable, and hopeless. It doesn't matter your crime in finding "a" job. It may not be your dream job, but as more time goes by of you doing the next right thing, the more opportunities will open up to you. But there's only one place all this can begin, and that is with you. It is a must to stop the "I cant's" because that means nothing more than "I won't," it is a thinking error. It is also a must to stop using the "Always" and "Never" excuses - those are absolutes. There is nothing a person cannot do if they just do it. There are no such things as absolutes; nothing is always or never. If one is serious about getting a job, income, responsibility, then be proactive and at least take the time to think about what folks that care on here write to you. Take the time to complete your profile so potential employers can notice you and your need to survive. Take the time for yourself... You will not regret it. Reach out if you need help. Someone will be there... #wordsofadvice #jobsearch #motivation #success #proactive #money #responsibility #jobcase

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A JOB AND YOU WANT A JOB, YOU MUST PRETEND AS IF FINDING A JOB IS YOUR JOB. Think about it.. You are sitting there broke and depressed, feeling as if the ceiling is about to collapse and leave you squished like a tomato that has fallen from the Empire State Building. So why not take a hot shower, drink a strong cup of coffee, get dressed like you’re going to work, and sit down and make a plan to get a job, pay taxes, and take care of yourself. Before you can take care of anyone else, we must be able to take care of ourselves in a proper manner, or really we are doing more harm than good for others because we will only take them down with us. Sounds selfish to me. Okay, I don’t want this to be a book, so I’ll get more to the point. Pretend like you have a job that doesn’t pay yet. I know that sounds horrible, to work for no pay, but you are working for yourself and most businesses aren’t able to pay the owner a salary in the beginning. You are investing in yourself, and most stocks don’t pay dividends immediately. Figure out what shift you want to work (First shift is best for this job because all the offices and businesses are open during the day). Pick your time, an eight hour shift with a half-hour lunch and a 15 minute break in the morning and another in the afternoon. Just like at a job working for someone else, during work hours, you only work, nothing else. No Facebook, Tik-Tok, YouTube, or anything else that distracts you and wastes your time. If you wouldn’t be able to do it while working for someone else, don’t do it working for yourself. Now get busy and get a job. I never give any guarantees or promises, but I’ll bet a basket of warm buttered biscuits against a piping hot skillet of sauerkraut that if you work getting a job as a job for eight hours a day, it won’t be long and you will be working somewhere. If you need any further guidance, resume help, suggestions, ideas, critiques or opinions, I’m here, just reach out. Regardless, please do something.

P.S. Employers who scroll these pages will not notice you without your profile completed. Be proactive and get it done. If you need help, ask.

Good Sunday, People.. This is a site you come to in hopes of finding a job because you don't have a job, you want a better job, or you're here to receive or give suggestions, ideas, advice, or stories of your job-related human experiences, whether they be stories of trial-and-error, or ventures of success. There are numerous experienced, kind, and helpful individuals here that are here because we want to help you get your chunk of the roast. I want to help you get where you want to be. All you have to do is respond or send me a message. You have to take the first step. You're here for a reason. Why not follow through with that reason? I can't think of a thing that you have to lose, besides a spell of time. I have a feeling after you take that first step, it won't take much time to know if the possible reward is worth the second step. Thank you for reading. I appreciate you... #step #plan #action #money #smile

In hindsight, my past experiences in life made me a better and stronger man. I had wrecked my life and finances by running into successive and non productive debts. My life was at a standstill. Every kobo earned was channeled into debt servicing with little or nothing to fund my many business ideas which of course were the major reasons I was indebted. I didn't give up on my dreams however. I kept pushing. Luckily, I was introduced to a global Fin. Tech that were willing to fund my dreams with enough fund to drive down my other debts next to zero. With their dedicated business and investment experts to guide my through my growth, I have a more comfortable life with businesses that service my debts. Best part is that I can't stop being a debtor because I need money to improve my existing business and to fund new ones. What I have learned to do however is to move away from bad debt to good debt. A good debt is one that is not consumer based but productive. It is used to make enough money to service the credit. Mr. A bought a car on credit with no substantial means of repaying the debt whilst, Mr. "B" purchased a car on credit and channels same into providing driving services. Mr. "B" makes enough money to meet his monthly commitments. I have learnt how not to be Mr. "A". I became Mr. "B". We should all be like Mr. "B". #advice #money #inspiration #jobsearch

I would rather make more money because everything is getting so expensive that it's hard to live and pay the bills. #advice #money

Caselyn, as Lawrence White noted: it all depends on the job title and role. What are you looking for? A technical role, secretarial, engineer, sales rep??? That is just a few. Perhaps narrow it down to what you want to do and I am sure that you will receive much more detailed answers.
