I just applied for a job on LinkedIn, which told me the position was posted 16 hours ago, and it already had 73 applicants. I went on an interview last week where 100 were chosen, and only 10 were selected. Last Monday, for another job, 50 were interviewed and only 5 were selected. Sometimes you feel you should not be born before 1990, or have more experience than the age of the interviewer.
Employer ghosting is frustrating to say the least and not a good business practice.
I believe recruiters sometimes are inundated with applications and interviews and inevitably ghosting can happen.
I like to use post-interview follow-ups as opportunities to both thank the interviewer for their time and reiterate interest in the role, but also use the opportunity to nudge the interviewer to take action and keep yourself top of mind with them.

3. I dont know what employers want, if I never a call back . I cant even email back with a

How is it possible that so many companies and recruiters are in search of workers and seems to be having a hard time finding and filling these vacancies? Yet at the same time there are so many job seekers here and on other sites, with a ton of experience in search of a job/career for months that are probably more than qualified to fill many of these openings. Where is the missing link?
I recently made it through a first and a second phone interview with 2 different people for a well known Veterinary Hospital. Both interviews seemed to go well and it would actually be a stepping stone toward my dream job. My 2nd phone interview was 7 days ago and at the of the interview I was told that she would like to set me up with a working interview of sorts so that I could see what the Client Coordinator position consists of. (I actually... see more
I feel I have dug myself into a hole. I worked as a senior client services administrator at a wealth management company until late 2013.. my 13 year old daughter tragically ended her life and because of the grief, despair, depression and anxiety I was unable to continue in an office environment. Around a year later, I was finally able to lift my head up out of the darkness and started bartending at two different places. I'm wanting to get back... see more
I've applied for just about every job on every single job search website that remotely fits my resume. Some I've sought out, others I've gotten in job alert emails. I even get calls from recruiters offering me jobs that I am very clearly under-qualified for but they ask me for details and information to pursue and set something up for anyway (and I figure, why not?).
Some of the ones I'm applying for I feel like I match what they're looking for... see more
For most of the last 16 years, I have built a career as a branch/store manager with different companies in the building materials industry. However, the last of those companies I worked for closed my branch at the end of 2018. I immediately began a search for a new position but nothing presented itself right away so I took a commission only sales position with a local roofer to gain some new skills and see the other side of the business. I have... see more
I dont get it. I got rejected again. They loved my passion but no offer. What am I doing wrong?
I am acclaimed in my field. Just turned 50. 2 degrees. Working on my Masters. All my roles were progressively upward. Am I being blackballed? I remain prayerful.
I’ve been out work for almost 8 months. I’ve been sending resume on almost all week. Still haven’t got respond. I’m really getting anxious and worry because of my age. I’ve always worked. My last job I was there for 15 years as Manager in Housekeeping and I have the experience and willing to learn more but not getting any respond. What am I doing wrong?
Gosh guys, we post our resume online and it goes to many databases but who is reviewing them is a mystery and when you get an email saying that some company is interested and you click that icon and it goes to some other websites and it is like the infinity loop. There has to be a better system that is more effecient and get better results. It has been a very challenging and sometimes frustrating experience. I have a Business ADmin Degree from... see more
