I recently got a new job at a company that really values diversity. I had the privilege of meeting with the CEO and discovered that he was a POC. There are also MULTIPLE women in leadership and Director level roles. This was SUPER exciting to me because it demonstrates that they value everyone's different experiences and knowledge.
My last job was very misogynistic. Despite me having an international communications post graduate degree, I was forced to do menial tasks, told that I was not creative, aggressive (and for the record I am, but it's because I've had Fortune 500 clients before for marketing programs so I had no choice but to be aggressive), did not understand what marketing was, and that I wasn't producing results (I was there less than 60 days when I got this "feedback").
I've since moved on to a nonmarketing role and I am already feeling better. Knowing that I am in a company that values diversity and gender equality is so refreshing. If you feel like you can't find a company out there that values D&GE, just know that they are out there!

How has the job market changed?
I was on the job hunt back in March of this year. I was looking for office jobs, front desk work, and for some bookkeeping and found ample openings constantly. Flash forward to now, after losing my job for reasons beyond my control, I'm seeing very few, if any, openings for those fields. It's got me a bit worried.
I live around some decently sized cities (10-20k), so I'm very surprised to go a couple of days without seeing anything other than healthcare jobs or retail/fast food openings. Has the market really changed that much?

Hello all, I am looking for some resume advice.
I have a Training coordinator position (5 years) and I would like to apply for an internal and remote position as an admin/coordinator. I do have many years of executive assistant experience, but it was a long time ago so I am wondering how to incorporate this into my resume without using years? I still use this experience in my day to day to keep organized and productive. Thank you!

Sunday Scaries "wine session" - After being in the the same career for over 18 years, including one position for 8 years with 2 promotions, in 2017 I left that field and have been trying to figure out what I have wanted ever since.
I have tried a career coach, volunteering, upskilling, networking . . . and am currently in therapy . . . nothing is sticking. I have switched roles 6 times in 6 years. I have also done freelancing and tried starting my own business. And the job I have now is sucking the life out of me. I have only been there for 9 months.
Not one to whine . . . and yet here I am.
I can see the appeal of a mindless job that just pays the bills and I never have to think about a "career" again . . . am I giving up??

I live in rural West Virginia, master's level counselor/therapist with lots of experience and great references, but no license.
I'm 76 years old: too old to go back to school for 2 years and then do the 3000 hours of supervision. I work remotely for a toxic company; along with others haven't been paid in over 2 months. I love helping my clients but the $$$ issue is eating away at my peace of mind. I've interviewed several places, but lack of licensure is a hurdle. Ideas on how to get out of this trap really appreciated.
