What is the proper way to network?
I have a few fields that i am interested in. I have a Bachelor's degree in marketing but i don't have any experience in marketing. So i am looking for jobs outside of marketing in addition to marketing jobs as well.
I have tried LinkedIn but with no luck. I try to add people as a connection who work at a company i might be interested in but most of them don't add me or message back and i have been told that messaging "strangers" is not networking.
How do i go about meeting people who can get me a decent job when i have nothing in particular to offer them?

Why is everything so serious? Everyone is so stressed at my work.
I work in marketing in a big company and everything is so life and death here. It can really suck me in too, to the point I can’t sleep due to stress over things that are in the grand scheme of things are so insignificant. And sometimes I can just see the bigger picture of like why do we all care so much about small changes in numbers and sales, why do many of us let this damage our mental well-being. Like what is the point of life! I just don’t know what to do about it. Because everyone else is so serious about it all.

Is it always a red flag if you interview with a company and realize there is no one over the age of 40?
I have an interview with a company today and I'm a little nervous. It doesn't seem like there are people over the age of 40 who work there so I'm worried about work-life balance. Is this a red flag or am I just worrying for nothing?

Are there job extract examples out there so I could try jobs and see what I love?
Recently I learned that if I like physics, it doesn't mean I'll also like the jobs in it. The jobs differ from the studies. I wonder if there are any extracts because that sounds so convenient.
I want to ask some people who work in physics if they could show me their jobs

Advice: am I being taken for a ride? do I withdraw?
I'm in the interview process for a fairly well-known tech company. I've done 2 logic tests, an HR screening call, 3 formal interviews, and 1 informal chat over the last 11 weeks. My last formal interview was on 13 August and I've effectively been waiting for a decision since then, and I had an informal chat with someone on 3 September which I think was to buy them time.
They told me today I'm still being considered for the role and the hiring process is all taking longer than expected (they've given reasons around summer holidays/lots of applications to work through), but having applied for this role 2.5 months ago now and having done all the due diligence, I feel like they like me but are keeping me on the hook and waiting to see if someone better comes along.
It's giving me concerns about how the company operates/what it may be like to work there and I'm wondering if I should just pull out of the process, as it's making me stressed and knocking my confidence a bit. But equally I know that if I get it it will be a lot more money than I make currently, a great name on my CV, and would really progress my career/ability to buy a house in the next few years etc.
I also know someone who works at the company in a similar role to what I'm going for but in another country, and she had a lengthy hiring process too (6-7 interviews). She's enjoying the role but has said it is fairly chaotic and unstructured internally.
Am I being impatient/over reacting? Any advice?

Wondering about if I am being underpaid
I was making $15.00 at my old company, moved from Chicago to charlotte and am currently interviewing different companies here in the same field and five years of experience with college and management experience. That being said the average pay for my field, merchandising and setting up displays, is $15 on average in Charlotte. The companies I've interviewed for have since given me offers of $14.00 and $12.00. I'm almost sure they are lowballing me seeing as how they've replied to my resume and applications within a few hours of submission and see I've been out of work for 5 months

Q: "What sets you apart/makes you different from other candidates?"
A: My willingness to gleefully abuse management by providing detailed, incisive, and acerbic guidance and commentary on their stupidity and incompetence, and then teach them how their job SHOULD be done.

My interview was cut so short
My Interview was scheduled for 30 minutes and it finished in like 12 minutes.. This is a really bad sign right? It was a final stage interview I did talk a bit fast to the interview questions because I was nervous but didn’t expect it to finish within 12 minutes

I feel stuck with job searching
I’m 21 years old and currently have had about 8 or 9 jobs but I always get fired from jobs for various reasons wether it’s lack of trying or just not caring in general as well as those jobs usually not lasting more then 4 or 5 months tops. I was just a teenager through most of my jobs and I fucked up a lot but now I’m 21 almost 22 and I just want to be able to get jobs but as a kid I always threw my hat into a ton of jobs and I’m not sure if that’s a red flag for employers or not but I’m sure that doesent help and then also my last job just tried to say the reason they fired me was willful misconduct even though they said to my face that it was due to lack of effort even though I thought I was doing my best idk if that shows up on a background check either but I’m sure it doesent help and I don’t know what to do my resumes pretty garbage and I just don’t know what to do any advice?

Unsatisfied working a low paying job, Help
Graduated school in 2020, was a harsh year to graduate. I majored in Criminal Law and Justice (minor in psych and ethics) Thought it would be interesting and fun/fulfilling to be a Cop, I no longer want to be a police officer, So i thought law school (currently work for a Large firm) , NOW, I don't want to be 150k+ in debt... Help me What other jobs should i look into besides LEO work?
I feel like there are a lot of people in limbo not wanting to take on the debt of Law/med school.. but not knowing what else to do with their Bachelors besides pursue more school, Why do professors/teachers push the idea of more schooling so heavily?
P.S. If you would kindly link me to any resume builders that would be helpful : )

Asking for time off...again (advice)
So, recently I asked for my job I've been working at for 6 months, and I'm really excited about it! I asked a couple months in advance just to be safe especially bc it was going to be during a holiday, and it got approved no issue, despite being 4 days. But... I need to ask for time off again. It's only 2 days and I'd still be giving 3 weeks notice for this time off. My questions I guess are, is it a dick move to be asking for this right after another time off got approved? And should I find coverage for those 2 shifts first or ask my boss first? I'm not sure because I feel like 3 weeks is adequate for 2 days, especially when the shift are only 5 hours each and those days we're often overstaffed, but I can understand if my boss feels differently.

Should I reach out and ask my last employer to be a consultant?
Should I ask my old boss for a consultant job? This would be additional to my full time position.
Last month, I left my last employer for a new job because I felt that my career development was going nowhere. But I excelled at it and my performance was appreciated by everyone. In fact, I was offered a promotion just a few weeks before I gave them my three-week notice. I made sure that all my activities have been fully wrapped up and transferred back to my boss, so that I left in good terms. Everyone, including my boss, said that I can always return to the company if I want, or if things don't work out with the new place.
Now, my question is: Should I contact my old boss again and ask if I can be back on board as an hourly contractor/consultant doing essentially the same responsibilities? I know that the department is slammed right now and my coworkers would appreciate the help.
I love the work and definitely the coworkers, and I really don't mind working as a part time hourly consultant in addition to my current position.
I'm afraid that my former boss would take it the wrong way: if she thinks I'm only after the money, or if I'm appearing wishy-washy after leaving and asking to come back so soon, as a part time job.
Is there a way to ask tactfully? Or should I just not do it?
P.S. for anyone wondering why I left after getting promotion. The promotion was in title only with pretty much no change in responsibility and tiny raise, and after so much initiative taken and resistance from finance and upper management. I don't see myself growing long-term with the company, so that's why I left for a company that values my growth potential. But I don't mind working part time for them and getting some extra money on the side. More money for my 401k and investments lol.

can’t hold a job
hello folks… just as a little background info i am 28, made good grades in school and have a bachelor’s in english but have always struggled with severe anxiety and ptsd from a dysfunctional family history and have never been able to hold a job for more than a few weeks.
this year has been especially hard i moved away from my dysfunctional family and don’t have them hurting me anymore but seems impossible to hold down a job. i was hired at a tutoring place in january but after my boss raised her voice to me i had a panic attack and had to leave. i kept at it for a few days but every time i saw her i would get so terrified that she might yell again i would run to the bathroom and puke if she spoke to me. eventually i just left the building in a dissociated haze one day and saw texts saying i was fired when i came to my senses.
i tried to work as a janitor in a baseball field but i kept getting confused and anxious and forgetting what i was supposed to do so they let me go after two weeks. i tried to work in a warehouse after that but the loud noises gave me a full blown panic attack on the first day and i left on the spot.
does anyone know what jobs would be acceptable for someone with severe panic disorder and memory/concentration problems? i am unable to drive, so i am interested in work from home positions but i do not know how those work. i would like to take time off and focus on therapy, but i have literally no money and need food.
