    So I am in my second week at my new job and I love it there. I took of this past Monday for family reasons and i asked my boss this morning if i could take off tomorrow for the same reasons. I am not going to ask for anymore time off for a long while, but even though he said it should be fine to take off because we have coverage, and I told him if he's not ok with me taking off I will be in tomorrow, I still am afraid I will get in trouble or worse. It's a guilty feeling. Should I be ok to take off work or should I still go in? Any advice? I really love my job and dont want to lose it.

    Long story short, I had a fast car in college and racked up a lot of speeding tickets, a reckless driving and a couple accidents. Immature and stupid as hell. I have since not even had so much as a parking ticket in the last three years, but my driving record looks really bad on paper until things fall off in another 3 years. I'm about to finish my master's degree and am wondering if employers care at all about driving records if the job has nothing to do with driving?

To add insult to injury our department was told back in April ,our job duties are being transferred to another unit Actually split into to two other units .Our leader is reassuring us it could take another year before the transformation will be actually completed but I don’t really believe so . The new unit is being trained on everything now as we speak so why would they keep us here for another year . From what I understand consultants and project managers are being brought in to help with the process Has anyone personally gone though this type of thing Could it take a year or more we are being told or are we being lied too

    I'm 17, going into my senior year of high school and I really don't know what to do. I don't have a career plan or even know how college works. I get good grades ( 3.85 gpa), as well as a 27 on my ACT, however I'm a terrible procrastinator and need to prepare myself for when I graduate. A real problem I suffer is that I don't really know myself and struggle with career planning guides. I have general interest in STEM fields, but I honestly can't make a decision on any specific career. I don't think anything in STEM sounds too bad, yet nothing truly stands out as something I enjoy. I really don't know who I am or want to be and I'm running out of time... Where do I turn?

    So I've been working at home depot for over 2 and a half years. It's a part time job while I'm in college. So far the job is kind of stressful because of the amount of work and management is lazy. I'm not really in desperate need of money because I live with my parents. Only real bill i have is my car bill. What makes me want to quit is management chooses customers opinion over associates. For example I had an incident where a customer told lies to a manager about me saying something to them. Management of course believes the customer and I'm in danger of getting fired. I know my self worth and stand true to myself. But if they dont fire me should i just quit? What makes me want to stay is the availability option I have. And it works around my college classes. I just want to see someone's opinion on the matter.

    Hello. To make this short. I ve worked as a janitor at a call center for about 5 to 6 years as an independent contractor (meaning a different company working alongside the callcenter). Yesterday I received an offer to work as head maintenance for the callcenter. I would be responsible for so much more. But I have ZERO experience with maintenance work. The reason I m being offered the job is because my wonderful boss thinks my dedication would pay off if I go for it and learn. My nerves are in the way though. I m afraid to take that big step of responsibility just to make a fool of myself. I don t want to let anyone down. Could someone throw some words of wisdom at me. How should I approach at the Interview? I m just scared AF to move out of my comfort zone.

    So I started a bartending job and I have experience prior to this job. There is a policy that requires I train for 3 weeks. Because I have experience there really isn’t much I’m unaware of; I’m basically capable of doing everything except the specific restaurant factors. I’m being taken advtantage of by other bartenders who are supposed to be “training me” today I took more than 10 tables; did everything myself and did the whole service bar myself; one table alone tipped me 60 dollars. Because I’m “training” I’m not allowed to keep tips so all my hard work is given to those who are not even doing the work for it. I think it’s unfair; and I feel very exploited; it’s not the management that’s the issue it’s the other bartender who is literally taking advantage of me. Today he went on a “lunch break” for an hour leaving me to handle the bar for myself and he pockets all the tips. I came home crying tonight and I’ve decided I want to speak with the manager and quit because of how ridiculous this whole situation is; how do I go about this? I’ve been “training” for more than 2 weeks now; enough is enough. I can barely afford my rent and spend more money ubering to that place than my less than minimum wage makes me. I rely on tips; so it’s been really tough.

    Best answer: Yes, exspecially if you do not have other work inline to include.

    The time you would remove irrelevant job experience is when you already have jobs inline with your current working career you are looking to maintain.

    Keep in mind those reviewing your resumes aren't just looking for people that have the exact field, they are looking for people that have kept and maintained jobs.

    I’ve been recently applying for jobs but none will take me since I have no work experience. What else can I do? Do I just show up in person and be like “HIRE ME!!” . Obviously it be ridiculous but damn I haven’t been hired for anything and feel pathetic about it being at home without a job it’s jusy sad I don’t want to be a complete loser. I’ve applied to so many jobs but I guess none ever call me because I don’t have work experience. I’m waiting for a job fair to come up this month and I’ll be able to go and look for work but still I want one now as soon as possible. My mom won’t stop being mad at me for not having a job I don’t blame her I really don’t! But it’s one thing to not try and another to do try. I have been trying to get one, I’ve been asking for friends help to get me a job at their own work area and they just pretend they forget about it. I show up to work places and kindly ask if they are hiring and all say “no I’m sorry”. Im still trying to but is there things you guys might recommend me doing?
