We are creating a cell phone reimbursement policy and are trying to determine how much of a monthly stipend to offer to employees who use their personal cell phones for work. Would love to hear what others are offering. TIY.

May I just vent for a minute? And feel free to commiserate. Over the last 2+ years (actually, probably since mid 2020) I have had countless interviews. Interviews in all shapes and sizes (I'm in HR, by the way, for what it's worth, but I'm speaking as a candidate). I have been in interviews that were the most pleasant experience ever, some where I felt like it was an inquisition (one particular instance, I went through 3 rounds over several months, wasn't really into that job but needed a job, totally thought I bombed it and then when I called to withdraw when I landed my current job, they were upset). Brady Bunch-style Teams interviews. In person with facemasks (which led to one of the worst headaches I ever had). All kinds of different scenarios. And I tolerate them, I do. I applied for a reason, I will follow through and take each rejection in stride and withdraw for what is not a good fit for me. But out of all the different interview styles I've experienced, the one I absolutely hate, is the one-sided recorded video. Hate. Double hate Looooathe that style. I just did one last week (second time in my career I have had to) and I almost withdrew my application once I realized that was the next step. Anyone else find those particularly torturous?

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.
