What is the biggest challenge you're facing on your job search?

We see a lot of comments coming into the platform about challenges that people are having with unemployment benefits. Which makes a lot of sense; there are millions of us that are out of work and overwhelming systems that aren't designed to pay out but rather force you to look for work. So looking at the other piece of the problem, the job search during a pandemic.

What are the challenges you're facing during your job search? What information and help would be most useful to you now for you job search?

in 2018 I was diagnosed and treated for lung cancer (I never smoke). Although I am in remission now, I am still considered high risk for COVID because of this health history and because of my age. I am an administrator (18 years +) for an assisted living facility, we are considered frontline workers. In January a staff came out with COVID. I made a conscious decision to stay home and be safe. The spread of the virus was rapid. Pretty soon approximately 70% of the residents and staff had it. I am not wealthy and I am not the type to stay home and vegetate. I love working with seniors and veterans, so I decided to re-invent myself. I opened my own company that provides service to my beloved seniors and veterans but without the high risk of getting COVID. My investment in my business is minimal because I work from home and I am the marketing person for now. COVID is a curse and a blessing at the same time. Because of it, many people have lost their job. But because of it, many home-based jobs have also surfaced. For people who are raising small children, home-based jobs or businesses are ideal. You don't have to waste time getting ready, leaving your children with babysitters, or drive. You can work anytime at home. If I can re-invent myself at my age (70) anyone else can. Just go for it. But to do this you must have self-discipline, the drive, and the will to stick to it and make it. I know you can do it. Good luck.

For me it's that I'm still in highschool. But I will need a job come summer, because this is my senior year.

Macy's and Gimbel's-- 34th street had it right

In the classic Christmas movie "Miracle on 34th Street" Santa starts telling Macy's customers where they can get products from other stores that are either cheaper, or in stock more, than Macy's. Even sending them to Macy's arch-rival - Gimbels.

I think Santa had it right.

If you are truly concerned with your customer- you want them to get the very best service and information. And, if you are honest, that is not always going to be done best by you every time.

We have great partners on this site (like Indeed, Careerbuilder, Glassdoor for example) where we think they might have different job inventory or better information than us. We also don't mind suggesting other places you might be better served like www.careeronestop.org.

Why don't you join us in helping other Jobcasers find the very best help in managing their work-life. If you find a good resource - just start the conversation here and add the resources hashtag like below: #resources

It will then be easily found by other Jobcasers who can upvote it or disagree as they see fit.

This site is about Jobcasers helping Jobcasers. What other sites do you like out there to help you in your work-life?....

Discounts on career training courses!

Hey Jobcasers! Thought I would share this since I for one had no idea it existed. Most of us know and love Groupon, but did you know they offer serious discounts on all sorts of resume-enhancing training courses?

Think: Excel Training, Bookkeeping and payroll, personal training certifications - all for around 65-90% off!

Check them out here - https://www.groupon.com/occasion/skills-for-resume
