      You can also try other job solutions build around screening like ZipRecruiter, which let’s you prove yourself before you apply (and you can understand a lot about a company by the questions they ask).

      Truth in advertising. RD had 5 positions before there was a non-white. And out of ll positions, only 3 w/a person of color. That’s exactly the mentality of the employers.

      How come you don’t have an article concerning the POSTAL SERVICE/
      They lost 8.6 BILLION DOLLARS last year.
      They continue to wast BILLIONS OF DOLLARS and MILLIONS OF GALLONS of gas with 6 day delivery.
      They should IMMEDIATELY go to either 5 or even 4 delivery and would STOP this waste.
      RD is AFRAID OF THE BIG BAD POST OFFICE.
      “THATS OUTRAGEOUS”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        agreed…and I waste more money for the post office but nothing I can do about it!  I got injured in Post office.  Surgeries and out of work on workman comp for a while.  Now I get approval from doctor to go back to work but I have some minor restrictions.  Post office won’t take me back.  Their are plenty of jobs I can do within my restrictions.  But they have the say if they want me back.  I sit home and make same amount of money.  Meanwhile post offices are paying people overtime to do what I could be there doing.  And this is happening nationwide…..

      Re: Healthcare jobs – I am an RN, MNEd, who has written programs for adult mentally ill people, worked 30 years in all aspects of hospital nursing, and  tried in 5 states to find a position.  Found one that seemed to be tailor-made for my experience and education.  I applied 3 separate times, no response, and after 1 year the job was still being posted.  Was it really a job, or just a posting to ‘prove’ that they were looking.  I was offered a job for $17/hr if I’d sign a 2 year contract working rotating shifts. Retired early. The position I had previously held was phased out along with dozens of others due to contract cuts.  The only jobs that seem to be available for nurses is  working short staffed  in hospitals on the night shift. and  I cannot go back to that much heavy, physical labor.

        have you tried home care

        • Guest

          Actually, I did and was turned down because my experience was not in home care.
