Rejection after rejection

I apply for stuff that's supposed to be entry-level or training provided. But I keep getting rejection emails after another. It's getting annoying. I have plenty experience in verities of stuff but they won't give me an interview. I have a highschool diploma as well. So, what's the deal?

Competition. Less jobs that are hiring and more people that are applying. After 9/11, getting a job became a struggle. I aslo…

I am at the point, where I feel like I don't have enough experience ANYWHERE!! Even after going to school and graduating, I feel hopeless. :(

Never ever give up.

I give up!!!

I have applied for almost 4,000 jobs in the last year and a half. I got my masters degree in Psychology with hopes of getting a good paying job. I’m lucky to work at a gas station making minimum wage!!! It’s pathetic how companies are hiring only for looks. I can’t get a job to save my life! For those who don’t believe me just ask around. I’m not drop dead gorgeous but I’m not that bad. I have 2 kids that are starving because their mother can’t…

Age question

Employers are not supposed to ask an applicant's age, but they have creatively designed a way to glean that data. As an older but skilled person searching, I find this offensive.

I think asking an applicant when he graduated high school is a pure play to determine age. This type of question should be disallowed.

Or when did you graduate college. Age discrimination is very prevalent but well hidden today.

Rejected cuz of no diploma

Turned in an application and was quickly brought in for an interview. Everything was fine, none of the inappropriate comments or questions I've gotten used to. He is looking over my resume and application and goes oh here, you forgot to show your graduation date. I'm all, I didn't graduate. Interview was over, he said company policy, everyone must have their diploma. Sorry, and thank you for applying.

It's been hard

Ive recently started community college & I've been looking for a job so I don't rely on my parents and to pay for my books. I graduated from high school back in June and since then have applied to many jobs. I haven't heard back from any jobs except for one but when I read the reviews from former employees I learned it was easy to get into sales debt from not selling the company product and I cannot afford to get myself in that situation. All of…

I did it!!!

I just accomplished the most challenging thing ever!!! I passed flight attendant ground school training. I'm so mentally exhausted, it's hard to enjoy the moment. I hope this career is worth the rigorous training I did for 3 weeks.

That is really tough--congratulations!

overqualified

It's sad when a degree keeps you from getting jobs. People think you can find something better than what they are offering in your field. Right now it's not as much about the pay as it is an income.

Hi ANGELA HARRIS , what type of degree are employers in your field requiring? What type of job(s) are you looking for?
