I've been applying to jobs for about 4 months now and while I have gone on several interviews I can never seem to get over that hump and get hired. It's getting to the point where I see interviews as just another waste of time. My question is thus: at what point should I realize that nobody in town or even the state is going to want to hire me and just give up? I'm getting completely exhausted filling out applications that I know are gonna go... see more

Filling out job applications should be fast, easy, and convenient. While most employers are converting their application process to be easy and mobile friendly, it is still worth your time to complete important questions on the application.
1. Be selective with your job experience, but not too selective. Many employers ask for you to provide only relevant job experience, but if that will cause your experience to have large time gaps, be mindful... see more

I received a drug related felony about 15 years ago. I began working part time at the age of 13. Worked part time until graduating high school. At that time I went to college for 2 semesters but had to many extra circular activities and it wasn’t for me. I came back to work at the same company I worked for all the way through high school. When I was 28 I got mixed up in some stuff I shouldn’t have. Needless to say I ended doing 18 months in jail... see more

Went on a job interview this morning. Got to the facility, was called into the interview with another candidate and the hiring manager (I assume). He handed out a packet of forms for us to fill out and said the interview would take about an hour and a half or so. I texted my husband to let him know he could go elsewhere if he wanted. The hiring manager proceeds to tell the other candidate to go to the next room over and then proceeds to tell me... see more

I'm very frustrated, I got a temp job and the posting said 5+ months, but I was notified today my assignment has ended. It's only been 3 weeks, and all I was told was that they were making changes and for business reasons they decided to end my assignment. I've been trying to find a good job for awhile and really thought this was a good job for me.

I had a bad experience working for a temporary agency once. I had gotten a interview for a job at an insurance... see more

I'm 17 years old, with little experience, and I have been applying for jobs for over a year now. Out of the hundreds of jobs I've applied for, have had two unsuccessful interviews, a few rejected applications, and the rest unresponded. It seems as if people around my age with roughly the same experience as me are getting jobs and interviews left and right. Why is it that I have such horrible luck with job searching? Am I doing something wrong? Do... see more

Hey guys! So, I am a 32 yr old female who works as a correction officer on Rikers island. I am now at top pay making 94k which is great but I never stopped looking for other jobs. I am willing to take a pay cut for a peace of mind. So my question is: should I go for it & switch careers? Or stay at my current job because the pay is good?
