DAVE SAYS

Responsible After M a ke Dec isio n s Together Death? Dear Dave,

Dear Dave,

My daughter died. She was 32 years old and single, and she had lived with me for the last few years because she was recently disabled. I did not support her financially, and when she died she had no assets and no will. Is it my responsibility to pay the student loans and medical bills she left behind?

My husband doesn’t like dealing with money. For years, I’ve handled everything from paying the bills to making the decisions, and he just does whatever I tell him. This makes things really hard on me, but he says financial issues cause him stress. Do you have any suggestions?

Jim

Who Is Dave Ramsey? Dave Ramsey is a personal money management expert, popular national radio personality and the author of three New York Times bestsellers – The Total Money Makeover, Financial Peace Revisited and More Than Enough. In them, Ramsey exemplifies his life’s work of teaching others how to be financially responsible, so they can acquire enough wealth to take care of loved ones, live prosperously into old age, and give generously to others. Ramsey knows first-hand what financial peace means in his own life, having lived living a true rags-toriches to rags-to-riches story. By age 26 he had established a $4,000,000 real estate portfolio, only to lose it by age 30. He has since rebuilt his financial life and now devotes himself full-time to helping ordinary people understand the forces behind their financial distress and how to set things right - financially, emotionally and spiritually. Ramsey offers life-changing financial advice as host of a nationally syndicated radio program, “The Dave Ramsey Show,” which is heard by three million listeners each week on more than 300 radio stations throughout the United States. His syndicated column, “Dave Says,” can be read in more than 250 publications worldwide. He resides with his wife, Sharon, and their three children, Denise, Rachel, and Daniel, in Nashville, Tennessee.

Ask Diana If you have any questions about interviewing, hiring, or work, just email Ask Diana. I’d love to hear from you. Due to the volume of response, not every question will appear in the column, but most questions will receive an email response within 2 to 3 days.

The first interview with one of the VPs for a minor branch of the company went well, and I was in the beginning stages of an interview with a VP for a somewhat more important branch. The interview with the third, most important VP was yet to come. I don’t think that they would have dropped me based solely on the first VP’s recommendation. I did call the first person who interviewed me thinking that she might be a bit more sympathetic, but she just reiterated that they wanted someone with different qualifications and said that the repost must have been an error. Right now, I’m just terrified that one of my references may have decided to sabotage me or something absolutely poisonous is coming up when they check my background. I can’t for the life of me think of what it is, but I doubt I’ll have a chance to find out if it’s that bad. I tried Googling myself but didn’t turn up anything, and the only Internet presence I have is a completely professional LinkedIn profile. -Springfield, Missouri Reader

There are 3 possibilities: the first VP squashed the hire, unfavorable references/Internet mention, or something you said or did. Sure the 1st VP could have been the one - he may be more important than you think he is! I rather doubt that they called your references but you can ask them. If they did talk with HR, find out what questions were asked. You’ve already checked the Internet, and that leaves you. You may have somehow said exactly the wrong thing in your interview with the VP. Did you talk about personal issues? Did you speak negatively about your current company? Did you speak negatively about your current management team? If you did any of these things, you may have talked yourself out of the job. I have been working in warehouses and operating all kinds of warehouse equipment for 18 years. I was at one warehouse for 14 years but was finally terminated for excessive tardiness. I’m not lazy, but I was trying to work a second, part-time job at the same time. I was at another job for a year and a half but was terminated for twice failing to report an accident. I have worked several warehouse jobs in between these two jobs through various temp agencies. I have been putting in my application and emailing my

BILINGUAL

resume to a countless number of warehouse jobs. You would think that with all my years experience, I would be at the top of the list, but just about every place I have applied to, I have received an email saying that although I have many qualities, “we have decided to pursue others candidates who more closely fit our needs.” What do you think it is? Am I too old (I’m 40), or is it that I just have too many black marks on my resume? I know that could make potential employers leery about hiring me. Yes, I have made some bad mistakes and been irresponsible at jobs, but I honestly believe that I have corrected these problems. What can I do to prove to potential employers that I am qualified for the position, am reliable and responsible, and can be an employee that they can have full confidence in? I CAN DO THE JOB.

caught in what people from Oklahoma call a “Wewoka Switch.” Simply put, they love your experience and want to hire for that, but your resume is scary. You even included jobs where you worked only three days, and you NUMBER the jobs. I guess that’s in case the recruiter hasn’t gotten the point that you have worked a lot of places. It’s like announcing: “I’m not all that stable.”

-Houston, Texas Reader

askdiana@jobsparx.com

Oh, noooooo. Your foot must be very sore because you are shooting yourself in it every time you send this resume. It’s never smart to include the reason you left on your resume. You can discuss it in person, when asked, but good grief, why would anyone want to interview you if you tell them you were fired for tardiness. You are
