What really irritates me about how the job process works is....employers will put out a job offering online or wherever else they may advertise. You see the listing and send a resume...a few days goes by and you get a call asking you to come into their office for an in person interview. You are thrilled to have gotten a call, and are excited about the interview. They interview you, show you all around the office, introduce you to several other workers, spend a great deal of time with you asking questions and chatting. You leave thinking, Wow, what a great interview!...I think I have this one in the bag. After a few days goes by, no call or email...a few more days go by, no call or email...2 weeks go by, and you still have heard nothing from the employer...I guess you are just supposed to assume you did not get the job. This is simply unacceptable and unprofessional on the part of the company (and unfortunately, most of them operate this way now). Your time has value...you have to drive to their office...sometimes, in heavy traffic...answer a lot of foolish "interview questions like...what is your 5 year plan?...and for those fools to not even show the courtesy of letting you know they hired someone else is inexcusable and stupid.
I have been searching what seems day and night to come up empty. I have a ton of experience, I am completely flexible, and at this point would take any position to take care of my responsablities.
I posted this earlier but cannot find it so am reposting. I had been contacted by Office Team for an interview. The person arranged to do a FaceTime interview, but never called me. I phoned the company and left the woman a voicemail when she did not initiate the interview but she never responded. I also emailed her a few days later to find out what happened but still no response. Should I write them off or let someone in their office know how I was treated?
I had the same thing happen to me!! I even had them say," We will call you back with a decision good or bad" and never called or replied to a follow up email. Very frustrating! They promote integrity, but don't show it.
I’ve been a stay at home mom for 10 plus years now, and now that my children are no longer needing me at home I have been trying to get a part time job just about anywhere at this point because for some reason the 1,000s of job applications I have submitted in the last year not one interview not one response back from anyone! I have really excellent job skills but nobody seems to want to even talk to me after seeing my resume and application I am beginning to think I may never be able to get back into the work force! I’m very discouraged!
More than once has my wife and myself met with employers that we have applied with through recruiters told us they never received our resumes or applications through the said recruiters. Just so happens the employers we did connect with was contact directly, have all the applications I have spent so much time on not making it for consideration? Always asked to join the premium on these sights and pay monthly fee, not premium applicants not being considered because their applications not being sent?
I've been putting in applications for a job over the internet for 3 yrs now and submitting my resume through the internet and I have nerve got a response from none of the companies that I have applied for I'm sick and tried of those H&R I think there just to get paid not doing there job for responding to my applications
I'm just wondering if there are other IT professionals out there experiencing the same level of frustration as I am. As a telecom specialist, I've spent my entire career adapting to the latest technologies. I've replaced entire phone systems and then maintained and performed troubleshooting on the new system. Unfortunately, I stuck around at my last job ... one that didn't afford me the opportunity to learn and grow ... longer than I should have. When I got laid off, I immediately went to work studying for and acquiring Cisco certifications to bring my skills up to date. Still, I'm getting rejected at every turn because I can't claim to have much experience working on Cisco Call Manager. I know the product and I know I can do the job on day one but how do I convince hiring managers of that when most recruiters won't even submit my resume to them based on their predefined list of what they are asking for ? For someone that's learned and worked on as many different systems as I have, learning a new system is child's play, not rocket science. But how do I get those interview chances to try to convince a hiring manager that my industry experience shouldn't be discounted so quickly. After all, if there's any unchanging statement I can make after working 30+ years in the IT field, it's that the systems/technology a company has now will not be the same as what they will have five years from now. Given that fact, shouldn't someone with a proven track record of adapting to all of the latest technologies be equally considered to someone who's experience might be that they were taught one way of doing things on one specific system? How do I get the chance to impress this upon a hiring manager when I can't seem to convince recruiters that don't understand this to set me up with an interview ?
I was laid off two months ago. I'm a single father and bought a house last year. I'm stressed and worried now. I've been on a few interviews but haven't heard anything back recently. I haven't received a response back even after calling and emailing the hiring managers.
I have great experience in many things but being a stay at home mom on and off for 16 yrs makes it impossible to get a possible employer to give me a try... when i have had a job i move my way up the ladder quickly... just want to be able to rake care of my kids on my own...
