I have had several phone interviews in the past few weeks. One in particular has me very upset. I spoke with someone interviewing for company x. The interview went great. She told that I was what the company was looking based on skills I possess. She told me I would be receiving information on when to come in for a face to face interview. She wanted to know when will I be able to start and we even discussed salary. I was excited. After a... see more

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday.
It is that time of the year when we start to panic over the next couple of weeks. Before you know it the holidays have come and gone, what are you doing to prepare for the New Year? With such demand for people to deal with, it's supposed to be a time to celebrate? How are you dealing with it?
Are you setting goals that are too high to achieve for yourself? These are just a couple of questions I ask myself when... see more

Hello Everybody:
I have been unemployed for about 7 months now. I left my previous job because it was a very toxic environment lacked of respect. I have been in so many interviews and everytime hey asked why I left I always said I'm looking for a professional environment. I don't know I'm awsering wrong. I change my tactic and I'm saying something else. My last interview I was asked if I have kids I said no. And I was asked if I'm planing to have... see more

Had an interview this year for a state job here in my town. I applied for a painter's position and was able to be interviewed. I meet all the qualifcations that was required. The gentleman interviewing me was the head of the paint department and he said that he was only interviewing one other person and they was on a cruise. I was the first to be interviewed so only two made it through. As he walked me out, some of the guys in the maintenance... see more

I had a great phone interview today with a very nice recruiter for a job that paid A LOT less than I was making. I told her I’m not concerned about the pay. I’m looking for a job that I can apply my knowledge and skills to.
I even asked her, what about my resume prompted you to interview me. She said it was extremely well written (it ought to be. I’ve revised it 1,000 times!), and it showed that I can do projects from start to finish.
She said... see more

She probably already had someone else in mind.

I recently asked six different recruiters and hiring managers to tell me what the biggest mistake applicants make during the interview process is. If they repeated a mistake given by the preceding recruiter/hiring manager, I asked them to give me a different mistake.

Here are the six mistakes that could end an interview, or lead an applicant to not get a second interview/job offer...

I have been searching for a new job since the beginning of June. I have over 12 years in administrative experience. I am getting interviews but then get ghosted. Even by staffing agencies. One job stated that they went with another applicant as they live closer to the business. A staffing agency emailed me and said they would have to dig deeper to find something appropriate for me. I've had only 2 jobs in the past 13 years. Due to hard work &amp... see more

I'm 17 years old, with little experience, and I have been applying for jobs for over a year now. Out of the hundreds of jobs I've applied for, have had two unsuccessful interviews, a few rejected applications, and the rest unresponded. It seems as if people around my age with roughly the same experience as me are getting jobs and interviews left and right. Why is it that I have such horrible luck with job searching? Am I doing something wrong? Do... see more
