I have had many office jobs in the past with major roles but fell ill for 2 years with severe Lymes Disease. I am feeling much better now and back on the hunt, but I haven't landed ... Read more
I am looking for remote jobs to start me off to save up to be able to start myself in college. I have bad anxiety and I am a stay at home mom and its hard getting anywhere without a degree but something that doesn't require to much schooling at first is what I'd prefer. Any advice or help is appreciated.
I've been searching for a new job for a year now without success. I have an MBA and BHA and have resorted to posting my resume/profile to multiple job boards. The only interest I seem to generate is from insurance companies in which they are seeking to fill a sales role. I find this insulting, I did not spend years in school or thousands ... Read more

The thing is, I only interact with ... Read more
I just started a new job last week (yay!) and am feeling alternately excited and stressed by all of the new things I have to learn before I feel like I know what I'm doing again. Any tips/tricks from your experiences for how to navigate these transitions successfully and get off to a good start?

Hi everyone -- I would say I'm at the mid-level of my career in higher ed, but I'm thinking about a switch to an entirely different field.

I'm admittedly homesick, but I feel really passionate about the vision I have for this business. ... Read more

I have been at my current job for four years now. I really don’t like my job (I am in sales and do customer care support) and really want to start looking for something else in clerical work where I believe I would be happier, BUT I am starting school again in January in the education field. Should I just suck it up until ... Read more

Do you think asking about a company's maternity leave policy / ways they support working moms in a job interview will hurt your chances of getting hired?
Is there a way to tell if your former employer is giving you a bad reference or "spoiling" the market for you?

I gave 6 weeks notice, but I did not leave on ... Read more

Hello ladies! I have been at my current job for about two years. The job I currently have is one that I got right out of college.

I've been at my job for a year now. I do enjoy my position and the flexible hours are what I need. But I can't get a definite answer on whether I will ever get a pay raise.
