Find a job with a rocky work history
I have had a shaky 3 to 4 years of work. My jobs have had lay offs and then I got into HR and went to another company for a director of management position. However it was a horrible company and I found another job in admissions, this was a step down but with better pay. However the hours are 9 to 6 and 11-8 on 2 days out of the week and some Saturdays.
I have 3 children and my dad just had a stroke and will have to come live with me and I would need a job with better hours and great pay.
I have my MBA but companies are not calling me back for interviews probably because I have job hopped. Any suggestions?
Have you asked your current company if you can adjust your hours to fit your circumstances? Are you able to do any of your work from home?
I have been working for twenty plus years. In the last 5 years I have been under the same boss. This person is very degrading. He usually sets his sites in one particular person and that person is his target. He humiliates, degrades and throws in some swearing. At the end of the meeting you feel like you've been beaten down. Its almost as if it's all a show for the other people. Women seem to be a frequent target. There was a particular incident that he was screaming so loud on the phone that we heard his ranting all through the building. It's not easy to just throw everything you've worked for away and quit but sometimes I think it's cone down to more than simply sucking it up and letting it go. Any thoughts?
I am officially going to be offered a promotion with my company, but the position will be in another state and i just found out i'm pregnant. should i take the job, even though we will most likely move back after we have the baby? should i turn down the promotion to stay close to family during the pregnancy?
How did people here decide on whether to go with daycare or a nanny? I'm lucky to have a choice but would appreciate others sharing what they think the pros and cons are of both.
I worked for a company that does transportation on demand and is constantly in the news concerning their treatment of customers and employees. I left the company at the end of my first year, despite loving the work I was doing, because I found company culture to be so toxic. I was lucky, in that the first job I got after leaving didn't ask me about my experiences there or what caused me to leave. Now, however, every interview I have asks why I left and starts asking questions about the company culture. Some of the questions have been way too personal. and I don't want to spend my entire interview deflecting questions or being asked to trash talk, my former employer. Any ideas about what I can say when I'm asked why I left and how to steer the conversation back to the interview?
