Feeling really down

So maybe someone can tell me what I am doing wrong. I have been in banking for 22 years and have all the qualifications when applying to bank jobs but for some reason I am being passed over. Does experience count anymore these days. I have had 10 interviews and not one has panned out. What could I be doing wrong. I know how to open accounts, use computers, count cash, process loans but it seems like that doesn't matter. The last interview I…

I feel the same way, Mary

I GOT A SECOND INTERVIEW!! FOR MY DREAM JOB!!! I am so happy! I've waited out for this job which directly coincides with my college education. I have a BS in biology, chemistry minor. This morning, they called and asked me to schedule an interview immediately, which leads me to believe they are filling one position because the job is not on their website. It is a quality control lab technician job for a federal job. The pay is the best in the…

Disheartened with results of job search

Every day I check my email and see emails stating “We appreciate your interest but are passing...” or “Thank you for applying...we will not be moving forward...” - even more disappointing is when I actually interview (in person, Phone, video), sometimes more than once - and they seem like they went well...a few I honestly felt I was about to receive an offer right then..the conversation is smooth, without any long pauses and it’s left with a…

Anybody else ever get an interview with a company that you know is out of your league?

The job posting was one of the dream jobs that I found and applied online fully knowing I was a long shot for a call back but surprisingly enough they called me for an interview. I went in the interview knowing I was out of my depth but I thought maybe the manager or someone in HR thought I was a diamond in the rough. Most of their employees have backgrounds akin to 'top tier university' with relevant experience, both of which I do not possess so…

Back In The Game! (Short Term)

Today was a bit stressful. I had a phone interview a very short term gig at Costco for a 2-month web optimization job. It was originally pitched to me at one rate and to start at the end of this month. Then suddenly, I found out that the position now paid LESS and it was to start immediately. Talk about pressure. I interviewed and I got accepted.

However, last Friday I interviewed for a short term contract gig at Microsoft at a slightly higher…

Went to an interview

I got a call from a company and said I have an interview for a driving position. I go there and waited for a receptionist to come back to his or her desk. 13 mins later still nothing and people see me there. Someone walks is and said may I help you I said yes I have an interview then told me to go to a different room. I went to the room and there are large tables with chairs and only one other person was there filling some papers. Someone from…

Ohhhh, that's shady. You should definitely leave a review on their Company page to warn other candidates; nobody deserves that…
