On Tuesday I went in for what I thought was an interview with Farmers Insurance. After getting to the interview, Farmers Insurance informed me that they were trying to recruit me for a Farmers Insurance small business owners position. After noting down as much information as I could I went home to think it over and to discuss it with my husband. I did some research being that I look through the website that farmers provided, and also attempted to contact some of those listed in the same position so that I would get their opinions. I also called a few friends of mine, some of which used to work for Farmers Insurance. Now the friends of mine who have had previous experience with Farmers told me not to take this offer. The few who have no experience with Farmers were overly excited about the opportunity and are more than willing to back me regardless of my decision. I just want to make sure that I'm looking at this from all angles, some that I might see and some that I might not. This is something that is going to affect my entire family and the life that I could potentially provide for them. If there are any one out there who have previous experience with Farmers Insurance or (more specifically) the opportunity that has been given to me please leave me some comments letting me know about your experience so that I may be able to have more clarity when coming to the conclusion that would best fit my family.

I just left my job and joined a new company. I had two days left a vacation and I'm wondering if I am entitled to it? Of course my former boss says no but I think I am. I started with him of April of 2012 and I did not miss a day or take any time off so I work the year and every year after till the day I left and when I qualified I took vacation. Now he's saying that he does not owe me for those days as I left working only 6 months in 2017. Who can I go to check this way and what legal actions can I take if any

As a middle aged single mother of two girls, I am unable to get a job within my career path. I started off as an administrative assistant and worked my way to an executive assistant but am unable to move into Human Resources. I was told that I needed a Bachelors degree in order to be considered for any Human Resource position, so I went back to college, started taking online night classes and am on my third year towards a degree in Human Resources Manangement. Most of my administive positions involved tasks within Human Resources, which built my skills and experience.

I have applied to several positions and only get to the third phase of the interview process. All of the positions I've applied for are stepping stone positions which are entry level positions. These positions involve the typical filing, new hire documents and orientation, scheduling and event planning. I am very well experienced with these tasks and many more within Human Resources and yet I am not considered for any positions!

The Bay Area is one of the toughest and most competitive job markets! The minute they see me in person I am not considered because I am not the hip young type all these companies seem to be looking for. They use large elaborate vocabulary in the interviewing process and expect the same out of me. I am not used to speaking so eloquently and this may be my downfall. Or my downfall is my interviewing skills, I'm always nervous and stumble on my words.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, I don't know what else to do. I don't want to give up or feel so horrible, I am honestly feeling like I have failed myself and that isn't who I am. I am a very positive person who is always encouraging and motivating others. But, today I feel defeated.

I want to get a better job, I do, but I’m having trouble even working myself up to the point where I feel like I can. It seems like whatever I do, there’s always someone or something there to knock me back and show me that no matter how hard I try I’ll always be in the same miserable place. Looking around here, it seems like there’s so much pain involved in job searching. Why immerse myself in all that when I can just stick to the pain I know, the pain of working a job I hate, of not being heard or valued. That’s pain I’m familiar with. I feel unprepared to strive and I don’t even know where to start. My heart longs for something different but my head tells me there’s nothing there for me except a new kind of struggle. Is it even worth it to try?
