At MY age...fired?!?! Like IntentionGirl, I’m in the same boat and needing encouraging thoughts as well. I recently have been terminated from my employer of almost 8 years for being tardy. Yes, I was tardy more often than not usually 5 minutes and never more than 10 minutes. I have two little ones (3 and 1), and trying to leave the house with them (during school traffic and work rush hour) or to do anything with them in a timely manner is like trying to herd cats in a circus! I am very resentful because I was very loyal to my employer and fair. If I was late, I made sure to stay however long I was late. People often times left early and would report staying a complete 8 hours!! Sometimes I did not take my breaks to be “fair”. And never did I call in sick for myself. ...I am only trying to be a good mother.
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve been let go and it’s been devastating. I too feel like I’m throwing my resumé down a black hole. What I’m fearing the most is that my termination will keep me from getting hired. My termination has been so stressful and very depressing. What advice you can share when dealing with terminations and obtaining an opportunity to be interviewed?

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.

Sending positive vibes to everyone!
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.

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 )
