Hi Ms. Johnson,
I am now 61 years old, my Husband and I have relocated to Georgia 1 yr. ago, I am finding it really hard to find a job.
I was a career Receptionist for 23 yrs. I have tried every thing you can think of, what am I doing wrong?
Please help me.
How can I find a good home-based job either on-line or otherwise.
I am a 54 year old with over 20 years of Accounts Payable and Data Entry experience. How can I reinvent myself with those type of skills?
I recently completed an assistantship in the sports industry as an event planner. I have three years experience in the field and am currently weighing the benefits of going back to school to get my Master's degree or continuing a the job search as an event planner. I am only 23 and the Master's program for Business I am considering is a one year program. Do you think the Master's degree in Business is worthwhile or would you recommend pursuing a job in event planning - does the Master's mean more or more job experience?
Can you please advise on how to get past the "you are overly qualified or your salary is too high" for the position you are presently applying for? I have 31 years experience in the Computer Operations area and had tried to apply for a position with FedEx Kinko's but could not get an interview. I feel confident that either my salary was an issue or that I was over qualified. I am just looking to give an employer a fair days work for a fair days pay.
I have an interest in seeing how you answered all of the questions from today's chat. How can I access the replies?
I completed my dual degree in 2007 wtih a MS in HR and a MBA. I however have very little experience in HR ( 6 months total - internship and temporary assignments). I am having a very difficult time finding a job in HR. What other career areas should I try to explore? Thanks
I was recently terminated from a nursing job. I really didn't do anything wrong. I basically disagreed with my supervisor on some things during an evaluation and in her anger she terminated me. During interviews in my new job search how do I answer the question of why I left my last job?
What was the one thing that you credit most for your own success? I admire what and how you do what you do and really identify with you as I have a very similar style and knowledge base. I recently started a local Job Club and have been doing "career consulting & job search coaching for over 20 years.
I am single mom and I was very disappointed because I was unable to attend the job fair in Boston today because it was from 6AM to 9AM. I have been having a terrible time looking for a job over the last few years. I have a law degree (which I have not used too much) and a strong background in sales. I have always excelled in sales but I would like a position that does not rely on commissions. Do you have any advice for me? Again, I can't even tell you what a terrible time I've had with my job search.
