    desparately needing help finding a job!

    I would try to highlight all of my credentials. Like if you are certified in Basic Life Support, or you are apart of your local nursing organizations, that would be helpful. Also try to list you agency work. If an interviewer asks why you have never worked in staff nursing you can always say that you find agency work at the time to be more flexible and thats what you needed at the time. Good luck to you!!!

    Hired but never called in to work!!!!!

    I don't think I am going to even bother with this company any longer. Concentra did call me and did a phone interview, so if that went well they will be calling me. I am not going to worry about it anymore, I am just tired of worring about things. Its driving me insane.

    New and thinking I shoukd give up

    I know your pain all too well. This same thing happened to me just 2 months earlier. The manager of the clinic that I worked for didn't like me from the start I think and just sabotaged my job there. My preceptor told her that I wasn't catching on and I was asking too many questions. I to asked how they did things because every facility had their own protoclos for doing things and they all was like the standards of care don't change but when I did care that was the standard, it would be wrong. I was bullied and harrassed there, and when I brought it to the attention of the administrator, she just told me to quit because it just wasn't a good fit. I had no say so what so ever and I was pushed out of a very good job. Now I have no way to pay my house note and I am so broke I can't even pay attention. As depressed as I am, I know God has something great in store for me and if I would just hold on and be patient, I will see it come to fruitition. I am believing this for you as well. You went through school, and you passed your state boards. You are smart and competent than you will ever know. Don't let anyone take your sense of self away from you. God has brought you this far, and you have a ways to go yet. It may seem hopeless, but it always gets its darkest right before the big breakthru. Have faith and know that you just haven't found the right place where you are to be placed to do your life's work. God is using you, He chastens those that He loves the most. Reflect and learn from this, as I am trying to do and stay optimistic and faithful about the future. Sometimes we give our jobs too much power over our self esteem. We want to be reassusred, and we want to feel like we are making a difference, and we can. Just don't expect it to come from somebody else. Become your own cheerleader. Do the work that you was hired to do and keep it moving. You are not in a job to make friends or to have a fan club. Keep it cordial, and pleasant and do what it is that you came to do. That is all you can do. When you have done your best in a situation and still it is not enough, then you must hold your head high and go own somewhere else, and don't look back. You will make it. This is just a test to see how strong you really are. One day you are gonna look back on all of this and say, " That was a tough time, but some how I made it through". Keep the faith, and never let the enemy have power over you.

    Hired but never called in to work!!!!!

    As if things couldn't get worse they did. I needed some inspiration today so I decided to go to night services at my church. I was feeling pretty renewed and inspired only to come home and find that some idiot has broken into my home and stole my dvd player and my kids play station 2. They ransacked my room looking for valuables but found nothing because I am still recovering from another break in at my home back in april. This is the second time this crap has happened. My house is going into foreclosure already and it isn't no point staying here and my home keeps getting broken into. I just don't know how much more of this I can take. I am at my wits end and I don't know what to do. I really need some prayers because I am just going absolutely crazy here. I couldn't get anymore depressed right about now. I don't understand why this kind of crap keeps happenning to me. I don't mess with anybody on this block, I don't talk to anybody, nobody from this street has been in my house or nothing. Why would somebody prey on a single mother and her kids? Why????
  5. I am so upset. I lost my job Nov 29th, and then miraculously, I found another job and got hired in on December 13th. It is now Jan 17th and no one has even bothered to call me and tell me what I need to do to begin working. I have already been to orientation, and I have already filled out my pre-employment forms. I have been constantly calling these people and they always say, "I will give your message to such and such and they will give you a call back", only they never do. The lady that hired me said there was two positions available and that I could get which ever one I wanted and nobody has called me back. One of the positions was to be a manager over one of the assisted living facilities that they own and the other was for a medical assistant. Ofcourse I wanted the position to become a manager, because of the potential to grow within the company. I was scheduled to have an interview for that position because I had to go through another boss to get in, and a freak accident happened the morning of the interview. I locked my keys inside the car with the car running and had to get a tow truck to come and open the car for me. I always start the car up in the morning before I leave so the engine will be warm and the heat will warm up the car before I get in with the kids. I have a kill switch on the car so when I started it up it must have locked the doors automatically. I asked the lady that called me to schedule the interview what was her number incase I needed to contact her and when I called her to tell her about what had happened she didnt answer.I called like a hour before I had to be there, and I left two messages and called the corporate offices and told them and they left a message as well. After the tow truck got me in the car, I called the lady again and left another message and told her that I was coming up there anyway. I was there thirty minutes after the scheduled time and ofcourse she wasn't there. I didn't here from this lady until four hours later after my initial call and I had to call her again to finally get in touch with her because she hadn't by then called me. I told her everything from start to finish again because it was apparent that she didn't check her voicemail, and I asked could we reschedule our appointment. This was like in the first week of January mind you , and this place already said that I had a job effective December 13th. This wench tells me that the next available appointment wasn't until the week of the 21st. :angryfire :angryfire :angryfire I was sooo pissed off!!!! I had to explain to this lady that I was already hired in the company and everybody that I talked to acted like they didn't know anything and no one has returned any of my numerous calls. She puts me on hold to pull my file and then she comes back talking about that they hadn't recieved all of my references back from my past employers and that she didn't know who told me that I had a position there because they can't hire anyone in until all of the paperwork comes back in. I wouldn't give a rats butt, I was told that I had a position within the company. She said she would talk to her boss and they would be calling me. That was almost two weeks ago, if not two weeks already. No one called me back. I am almost three months behind on my house note and these damn people are playing with my livelyhood. I could have been on my merry way looking for another job, but I was waiting on them to call me in to work. I finally called them yesterday one last time, and I finally talks to the boss who said that they checked my police record and it came back that I did have a record and i needed a police clearance. That was the big hold up!!? No one couldn't have contacted me with the info so I could get them what they needed? I know this person has gotten my numerous messages and she couldn't call me back to tell me that? I am incensed!! I have never seen such unprofessionalism in my life. You have called me in for all these interviews, and had me coming up to the office filling out pre=employment forms and sitting through orientation, and all this other stuff, and you people couldn't even call me to keep me informed? I have done everything these people have asked me to do. I feel like kicking somebody's #$%&!!!! She didn't even apologize, she just said, "oh just bring in your police clearance and I have a position for you asap". I am just so angry, it seems like I can't catch a break at all. And the killing part of this all is that my police record is from being arrested for driving on a suspended license. I don't have any felonies at all. Sorry this is so long, I am just blowing off steam.
  6. I read the book and I thought it was a very informative interesting read. It makes you kind of think outside of the box.

    Bluetooth?

    Oh, maybe you can get on your pda too. But it should be the same process.

    Bluetooth?

    P.s., you have to buy the headset, it doesn't come with the phone I forgot to mention. You can buy it where you got your cell phone at or you can buy it at RadioShack, thats where I bought mine at. I paid about $70.00 dollars for mine, but you may be able to find it a little cheaper than that in your area.

    Bluetooth?

    Basically its a wireless headset. You can program it into your phone, so your phone can find the bluetooth device. But you must program it into your phone first before you try to use it, otherwise it won't work. If you don't know how to program it into the cell phone, then you can go to a RadioShack, or a cell phone store near you to help you program it into your cell phone. I have a bluetooth headset and I love it because I don't have to fumble around trying to answer my phone while I am driving and its totally hands free. I could have a bunch of groceries in my hand and I don't have to cradle my itty bitty cell phone in between my neck and my shoulder so I can free up my hands. And its wireless, so I don't get caught up in nothing. You'll absolutely love it!!! Hope this helps!!!

    Depressed and worn out

    UPDATE: I am doing a little better than I was when I first posted. I found another job on the 13th of this month, so I am glad about that. I will not be doing my medical assisting duties, but it is better than what I was doing, with opportunities for advancement. I will be a manager over an assisted living facility. I haven't found out how much I will be making, but I should find all that out In January. I haven't heard from my mother since I put her out of here on the 8th of this month. I am okay with that because I need a break from her after that ordeal. Thanks everybody for your support, and I will keep everyone posted.

    Thank you to everyone who posted to this. I have not spoken to my mother since I put her out two days ago. I hope she got home safely, but I am not going to call her or anything. My son snuck and called his father yesterday. I was angry, but what could I do. He is a child and he loves his father no matter how much of a deadbeat he is. I am just angry that I am in this situation and I am praying to God everyday that I find a permanent solution really fast. I don't want to have to ask or depend on anyone or anything. Thank you again everybody for your opinions and prayers, they are greaty appreciated.

    Thank you for your words of wisdom and encouragement. I really appreciate just the time you took to post this. I am happy to say that me and mom got into a heated argument and I had to put her out. She has money and I even made sure she had gloves, but I told her she had to go. She was being verbally abusive to me and I just couldn't take it anymore. My whole childhood has been abusive thanks to her. I was taken out of the house by child protective services because her husband at the time punched me in the mouth and knocked out my two front teeth( Now you know who wrote the song"All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth"!!!) when I was 13 years old. I have been on my own since I was thirteen going in and out of foster homes and girls homes, and now, I am just tired of the whole thing. I love my mother I really do, but I have never felt normal because of her. I know she is sick and I don't want to take her illness out on her per se, but now, I just don't know. I am tired of my whole family to tell you the truth. Last year my grandmother was living here. Now I am in a time of need and I can't ask nobody in my family for nothing. Nobody can help me, but when they need help I am always helping out. I was talking to my ex-stepfather, yes the same man who knocked out my teeth, and he said he can understand me not wanting her to come back over here anymore, but don't turn my back on her because she needs her family. I don't want to be bothered with her period, not for a while. Its a shame that I can talk to a man that used to beat the crap out of me more than I can talk to my own mother. He was on drugs during that time and has since came off of them and is trying to raise my little brothers by himself, so I have more respect for him than my mother because regardless of what he did to me, atleast he did get his act together, if not for him for the sake of my little brothers. I have soo much to do, sort through, I have to find me a job before I get but out of my house. I wish I was renting, then atleast I wouldn't owe tens of thousands of dollars if I didn't pay my rent, I have a house note, and I don't want to lose my house. I will figure out something.

    No his mother doesn't care and you know what, I don't expect her to. These are my children, she knows all about the situation between me and him. She doesn't think that I should have put the child support order out on him, and since I did, I don't care about him and I am trying to hinder his success. So I don't go to her for advice or help about him because she doesn't give a damn one way or another anyway. I put a child support order out on him in 2003 and I have received from him maybe about 500 dollars in almost three years. So I give up on that. I recieved a notice in the mail from the Friend of the Court stating that they were planning on suspending his drivers license because he owes over five thousand dollars in back child support. Whether I see any of the money remains to be unseen. But, I have done my part, if he chooses to not pay then thats on him, but he can't come over here and see nobody. My kids need shoes and clothes, they are growing out of their school uniforms, I don't have anything to say to him or his family because they don't help with the children anyway.
