Yes, you were wrong to quit Starbucks. You were wrong to eat their SUGAR cookies. You were wrong to slurp their coffee and drive your blood pressure through the roof. You were wrong to allow yourself to get so low on funds you had to move back in with your parents when they were quite […]
Realize that at this point any job will give you valuable experience. Every job has skills that will transfer to other jobs – showing up on time, working with your fellow workers, learning new skills. I don’t know what kind of job you are applying for. Talk to friends and see who is hiring. It […]
Are employers in Virginia required to tell you the reason you were not chosen for employment? Specifically law enforcement.?
I am not aware of any state that requires a potential employer to tell a candidate why they weren’t selected for a position.

Applying for bank manager. Should I tell the interviewers in my cover letter than I’m a finalist in getting hired at Merrill Lynch?
No. If you apply pressure on them by saying you’re getting this other job, they won’t waste their time. Or if they do interview and offer a job, they’ll indicate there’s another person who is willing to take less than you and you might miss out on potential salary since they can argue you down. […]

I suggest you make time to meet with her soon to discuss the situation, in order […]
I always ask for the resume in the interview. If the candidate did not bring one, that counts against him or her. Reasons: Preparedness, attention to detail, and also how the resume is formatted if computers are part of the job. What is copied and pasted from our recruiting department might not look like what […]
I suggest you stop asking anything from this difficult co-worker. If you’re not too sure about something, find someone else more helpful to ask. Read this, http://bitly.com/1unDJtW (How Not To Act When You Don’t Like Your Coworkers)
You’re going to have a hard time getting one because you’re NOT 18 yet, you have no experience or skills or a reputation. I think the only places willing to hire you is fast food places or other places you see teenagers working. Good luck.
