This job search thing is really discouraging. I have a ton of experience in Office Management / HR. I took a detour into teaching, and now am looking to get back to the corporate world. My resume is great (had it professionally reviewed). I've only started, but every job on LinkedIn and others have 100+ applicants. WTF? How do you compete with that? I've only just started but I've already resigned myself to the fact that it'll probably be years before I find a job. And, yes, I'm using more than LinkedIn. That's just the one the quickly shows you how many other people have applied, at least through LinkedIn. If the job is posted in other places, then that means there are actually more applicants than that.

OMG I have to vent. And I'm aware that this isn't important, and people can do what they want, and spell their crazy-ass baby names how they want to. But WHY? WHY would you spell Deborah..... Debrah? Why would you spell Matthew with one 't'? Why the name Kayla with two 'l's? Seriously.... Kaylla. Why? I mean, these are normal names with normal spellings that you actually CAN spell wrong. I just can't stand it. It just bugs the fuck out of me. PSA to parents thinking of doing this: These babies grow up and get jobs and have lives and have to live those lives .... with their fucking names misspelled!

Jesus H. Fuck. Do I have to physically WATCH you sign the form before you mail it in? Like a PO might watch you pee in a cup? They keep sending you letters because you did not. sign. the. form. And no, I can't just make a copy and mail it in. Because you need. to. sign. it. This isn't fucking rocket science. The amount of hand-holding some of my clients need makes me wonder how they survived to adulthood.

I swear, my old boss really thinks that this job is the most important thing in the world. She isn't even my boss anymore, but during the transition going on in my company, I agreed to take some projects for her. She just dumped a big ole project on me, and said it had to be done by end of July. I told I had vacation in July, but I would do my best to meet her deadline. She responded that it might not be possible for me to take the vacation. Um, no, I've already got it planned and booked, and I'm going. We went through this a few years ago (when she actually was my boss), and I told her she couldn't stop me from going, all she could control was if I had a job when I came back. I feel the same way now. I'm not skipping an already approved vacation. Especially for a dying company that is probably going to lay me off in the next year anyway!

Taking screenshot of a thank you photo collage (made through a PostSnap without having to pay for actual postcard) then coveting the screenshot to PDF file to send along with thank you email. I only saved a few bucks, but this little hack makes me feel soo happy.

I'm a Realtor. Team Leader brought a new guy onboard last week. He's been in sales and was "hungry to make $." So far, three leads she's given him have been passed on to me. 1. He was confirmed to show homes to clients. He tried to call them in the AM & didn't connect, so he said he wasn't wasting his gas to meet them if he didn't know for sure that they'd show up. I live MUCH further away & still went. 2. TL asked him if he was avail to show homes the next day. His response: "Well it will have to be later in the day bc I'm going out dancing and won't be home until 4am. This is my only entertainment until I start making regular money. I also haven't been on vaca since 2015." Huh? FYI, I went to sleep at 4am but still showed them homes at 11am & haven't been on vaca since 2013. 3. He refused to call a lead bc he'd texted them the day before. Really?! Thanks for the ~$900,000 in sales, you idiot!

I'm really glad my SIL got a new prestigious job, but I really hate how braggy she is about how much she makes and how great her insurance is. It's in bad taste, IMHO. Especially when she knows the rest of us have shitty insurance plans with high deductibles and small networks.

I have almost simultaneously interviewed for 2 jobs, and I think I have a good shot at both. Problem? I only want 1 of them, but I think the one I don't want will offer first. Should I take it, in case the other one falls through? If the good one makes me an offer I would reneg on the first one. Thoughts?

I hate when Excel gets cheeky. "We can't do that to a merged cell". Oh YEAH?? Wanna bet?

Everyday, my ex would complain about his soul-sucking, but good paying job. I need to let it go and stop stalking him, but I'm happy to learn that he quit his job to start his own business. That takes courage.
