Recruiting & Dispatch manager
As I have been out of work since Sept 2016, I've been trying on a daily basis to find a position in my field of recruiting for staffing agencies. In every imaginable way,I've been looking, but so far no luck. I've also, on a daily basis looked in other fields, but that hasn't worked out as well. I have a real passion and love for recruiting in the light industrial field because more than not, you are helping non skilled people find work and those that are having a hard time find work for many reasons. Students, people with criminal records, those looking for a 2nd job, etc,etc. It is quite a rewarding feeling when you can help someone get back on their feet and find employment. I still have that emence passion. It is so frustrating not being able to find any sort of employment , let alone in recruiting. I guess 18 years experience doesn't count for much. I'm not giving up and I know NYC is a tough market, but where does a 57 year old go to get help in returning to his passion, his field?
Confused! Did not receive PUA benefit this week
I need some answers, I live in New York State and since I wasn't eligible for UI benefits I was directed to apply for PUA (Pandemic Unemployment Assistance) which will net me $600 USD per week for up to 39 weeks. Upon applying for this benefit and subsequently getting approved for it I received my first payment of $600 USD on Friday, April 24th, 2020. After following all necessary instructions to keep receiving PUA, eagerly awaited this much needed money the following Friday... to my surprise nothing was deposited into my account. I tried calling the Department of Labor to no avail... Will I keep receiving this benefit? Any other New Yorkers in the same situation as me? What's going on? I just need some answers as to why I didn't receive my PUA this week.. #coronavirus #pandemicunemploymentassistance #PUA #NewYorkCity #NYC #NewYork #UI

Religion On the Job
NYC Police breaking barriers with religious workplace accommodations. Like it or not the face of America is changing and we can expect more religious diversity due to the rising number of immigrants from South Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Exceptions around facial hair, workplace attire, and time off will need to be updates, particularly with major US cities, to accommodate our new citizens. Kudos to NYC Police for stepping up! http://bjconline.org/nypd-issues-new-rules-accommodating-officers-religious-observance-010217/
