Hello from Atlanta! I have found quite a few resources as I enter this new season of life but I have to say, FGB is proving to be a really comprehensive and encouraging tool! Thank you!
I won't go into depth about my my journey but I do have a question....as someone who "retired" when I was fairly young to raise my family and care for a parent, is it recommended to write a chronological or skills based resume? I have erred on the side of skills based to summarize a lot of my project mgmt, fundraising and tech skills for non-profits, albeit voluntary. However, as I have been looking into having it professionally rewritten, the companies are recommending I use a chronological format. I'm almost 50 years old and have quite a lengthy list if I were to go ALL the way back to when I was working full-time. What is the school of thought on this situation?

Growing my resume!
Do you consider courses/professional certificates on Coursera to be valuable and/or worth the time? I have degrees, but there are some certifications that I feel would bulk my resume if Coursera is respected.

Is anyone else experiencing significant challenges in their job search these days?
As a creative director who left their job earlier this year, I've been receiving rejection emails left and right from automated systems. Am I the only one facing this, or is there something unique happening in the job market?

I really loved the job fair we had today, very useful, and made some new connections.
I advise others to attend the next event.

Just felt like the community could use a sprinkle of encouragement today.
I may not know your exact situation but I wanted YOU to know that I SEE you and I'm PROUD of you. I know it's a weird time (a lot is going on) but you've got this. Breathe through it and DON'T GIVE UP.
You are capable.
You are supported.
You are valued.
You are loved.
You are needed.
You are powerful.
You are light.
You are amazing.
I hope everyone has a good rest of the week.

to add to the 4 months notice denied PTO
I am loyal and been with the company for more than 25 years ; good attendance and employee of the month and season too.
I think he should cut me a slack and approve it. ( still on the works but made me really upset )
