I thought my interview went well, the. HR lady made a excuse and left the room, the hiring manager then proceeded to ask me inappropriate questions such as when I was gonna to retire! I am 52 and have 15 years yet. Followed by more age based questions. HR lady came back and he shut right up, like it was planned. After the interview there was a “test” where you put a spring in a hole and put a couple pieces in he demonstrated it. There was no…

I had a weird one today. I was told i was the only one being considered for a position. The interview seemed to go very well. The HR manager said he'd be putting together an offer package and sending it over by weeks end. Instead what I get today is an email saying
we've decided to open it up to other applicants. You're qualified, but I dont have any positive feedback for reasons they chose this. The problem comes in where my ex significant…
I was terminated after 17 1/2 years of working for a hospital that I considered my Alma mater. Unknowingly to me I was working with women who were jealous of my skills to do my job. Because I wouldn't cave to their bullying. They got together to create lies about me that they went to the manager and HR.
I was never given the chance to grieve the lies that were told on me before being terminated.
I was devastated and broken by a system that I…
I just turned 47 and have over 13yrs of progressive HR experience. In the last year I have applied to over 400+ jobs and have had at least 40 job interviews. This last month I have had 7 alone and can't land a job. I'm very depressed and feel defeated. What more can I do? I'm on all the job sites and professional network sites.
The other day, an HR acquaintance shared some interesting information from her side that I thought would be insightful to jobseekers:
1. HR professionals search online for candidates. So make sure your resume is online.
2. HR professionals look for you on LinkedIn. They look to see if you have any contacts in common. If so, they may even contact your contacts if they know them to find out about you.
3. They Google you and look at what you post…

I had my 4th interview a week ago. The other 3 interviews I was contacted within a day or two to schedule the next interview. After every interview, I sent out thank you emails. Now the 4th interview was with a panel and not a one on one interview, but I was told that I would be gotten back to within a couple of days. I emailed the HR manager after a couple of days and no reply. Then I emailed the sales manager on Friday and no reply. I emailed…
I am sharing my latest blog post from my site, HR by Nnamtique (nnamtique.com). I would love for everyone to check it out. It is written more to hiring managers, but I think that it can give job seekers some useful information on how effective hiring managers should operate.

Hi folks. I was wondering what can I do about my recent termination. I was a sanitation tech for a major drink distributor in my area. I was contracted to work there. I did my job for 2 and a half years with little to no complaints. None of the people I started with are there any more. They have high turnover rates and most people have quit and a few were fired.
To make a long story short. Our point of contact person was a small Indian guy that…
