Job Seekers

job seekersStarting over is really rough, especially without the tools you're used to." Alan knows what he's talking about. Up until about a year ago, he was working in the manufacturing field. Then the layoffs hit. "Hit is the right word. I was making good money, but I hadn't been working long enough to build up a good enough nest egg yet. It was kind of like running up an escalator, and suddenly finding out you get to the top and there's no floor there. I fell pretty far and pretty fast.

"I ended up having to move and sell my car. I even had to close my checking account, because a creditor got hold of the number and started siphoning off what little money I had left. Right now I'm staying with some friends who were nice enough to loan me a spare room. But I really don't want to take too much advantage of them.

"I wasn't sure how I'd stay in contact with potential employers, or have any way of handling my money other than sticking it under the mattress. But then I found PhonePlusPlus. What a difference it has made for me. I'm back in control of my life again!

"PhonePlusPlus has helped give me back a little bit of my dignity, and made life a whole lot easier. With PhonePlusPlus, I prepay a small fee and I get all of the tools and features I needed to start putting my life back together: Two stable phone numbers, complete voice mail, FollowMe so I never miss a call, a GenieCard Visa® Prepaid Card with ATM access, and a calling card, which I use as my all in one card, email, and more. What a difference!

"One way it helps a lot is in the job search. I had interviewed at a company that really seemed to like me. I told one of the guys I'm staying with about it, and how good it looked. But I guess he misunderstood me, 'cause they called about a week later to offer me the job, and he told them I'd had another offer. By the time I found out, and tried to straighten things out, they'd already hired their second choice.

"But now, with "PhonePlusPlus, that won't happen. Genie* won't give out any information to callers on her own - only what I want. And she'll reach me or take the message correctly, without me having to worry about someone else playing the message or losing it.

"I also have my PhonePlusPlus email, which helps me get out resumes and emails to hiring managers. I can use just about any web browser equipped PC to do that too. I don't have to rely on a friend - just go to the library or internet café and use theirs.

"And my GenieCard is very important to me. I don't have to carry cash around, I just use any ATM displaying the Visa and Interlink brand marks to get cash if I need it, or use the card anywhere Visa debit cards are accepted. I feel like a real member of society again.

"I've taken a couple of small temporary jobs while I'm trying to land a full-time position again, and the PhonePlusPlus helps there too. Not only can I be reliably reached to come in as soon as they need me, the folks I've been working with were able to put me on their direct-deposit program because I could use my GenieCard for direct deposits. They didn't have to write special checks to me, and I didn't have to worry about finding a place to cash them.

"All in all, PhonePlusPlus has been a big step back up on the ladder of life for me and I am very excited."
