I am struggling to find a new job, I have been applying for 3 solid months, and received only 1 interview. I am a higher level manager and there do not seem to
be many jobs at my level (AVP, Director, Program Leader). I am looking for a role with a base salary $100-150k and a friend just told me for every $10k
you can expect to look for a month. Is that true? I need a new role, I have a new boss and he has indicated he doesn’t really see me as a good fit and is giving me time to find something new. I have never had a job search that produced so few results, I am working with a variety of recruiters but they each tell me there really isn’t much work out there it’s just a lot of low level jobs and I am over qualified (I am 38 and have 15 years of experience).

I accepted a position, signed the offer letter, back in January that I found through a recruiting firm, however, I have yet to start due to some internal delays and dont want to burn bridges with the recruiter, as they are large, and may need them down the road.
In all fairness, I did know that I was going to start at least March 1, but here we are and I haven’t started and now I’m being told sometime in March .In the meantime, a former colleague reached out, said he’s got a position open for me (that I would much rather have) and they are ready for me to start now. What do I do? Thank you for all of your advice everyone.

I have been in my position for over a year, gone above and beyond whenever asked, volunteered to take on additional responsibilities and am delivering unprecedented results at a rate of 2x the previous person in this position who did not take on any additional responsibilities.
I was promised a review and raise at six months; however, the company started a restructuring and it was tabled. Approaching my one year anniversary, I requested my review from my new Director and was told that she will review me after SHE has been there for a year. I then created a self-evaluation form, completed it and included forms to solicit input from managers and supervisors who could attest to my performance over the past year. I received the response that while appreciated, I was not hired to give HR input and they are not going to give me an annual review. Since that time, I have witnessed two male counterparts be given promotions with raises. Surely the Director met with them to do this. Now my position, for a nearby location with this company, is being advertised starting at a higher pay rate than mine. How do I again respectfully request my review and an appropriate pay increase? Love what I do, but am becoming more and more resentful of being used to perform duties above my paygrade and delivering results that make my Director look good while I am her "secret weapon" kept in the shadows.

My current boss wants me out.
He gave me about 2 weeks to "ramp up" and then when I didn't because I hadn't been trained, no communications about projects etc., he dropped me like a sack of potatoes. Thing is he has my coworkers in on it too. They're gaslighting me and cutting me out of communications also. Basically, I'm trying to work in a Silo with little or no information. Only have 2 more years until retirement. Afraid at my age, won't be able to get another job. Do I just hang in there?

I have retaken my LVN license 3x and unable to pass. I have 8 years in healthcare and work as a clinical manager. I know I should keep trying but I need work and something higher paying. Any suggestions on what I can do without a license? Or for remote work?

I am wondering if it is normal to have panicked thoughts regularly at a costumer service job. I find I get anxious every time a costumer comes up. I also a am finding myself wanting costumers to go away on a the regular basis. I have been in this job for a year and these sort of thought have continued the whole time. I also sometimes feel more irritable and less myself when I am at work compared to when I am at home. I know some people say its just what the job is, but I find I disliking people more and more, when I used to be so caring.
I would like to know if this is normal, does everyone feel like this in this sort of job.

I had an in-person interview today and they sent me a rejection email three hours later.
I feel like I'm back at square one and I don't know what else to do.
