I don't think that any on-line application should ask for your Social Security number. I don't feel safe doing that. I lost out on a job because I would not put it on the on-line application.
I came across this podcast that hit close to home. I worked in a lot of different service industry positions before getting my start in the corporate world. It actually all started from one of my regulars at the bar I tended who was working at a consulting firm and thought I'd be a good fit for a Research position. Fast forward 5 years and I've built a nice career for myself and a home here at Jobcase where I get to hire engineers that enable... see more
I have submitted multiple resumes and applications via electronic submission (which seems every company wants them this way) and I am wondering if I should follow-up with a phone call, email, or some other form of contact? I have been able to locate many HR individuals of the companies. There are several companies and positions I am deeply interested in. Any thoughts or guidance?
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 don't understand doing applications on line. College calls even though I said no

Then I found out that the reason is that they want to build a data base so that if a position opens up say in a few months they can quickly access the data bank and contact those most qualified. Of course they don't tell you this because then people won't waste their time filling out the on-line application which some can take up to 30... see more
I've been in the workforce, training and recruitment field for many years and am definitely not impressed with theyway the recruitment / job market is going. You now apply on-line, attach your resume and hit
send. Off it goes through the airwaves and you are at a standstill, hoping to hear back from someone. If you follow up via telephone or email, you typically get the

Has anybody noticed that when you register to some of these websites you get a million calls a day! Not only that but it is these supposed job recruiters that you cannot understand what they are saying, or they don't answer when you say hello on your end of the line! Then when they do talk they try to get you into commission jobs or try to get you into school. I'd rather them email me all that stuff instead! I'd rather get a call for an interview... see more
Im not getting anywhere with this online applications, how is this working? Has anyone actually gotten hired this way?
I have recently started filling out online job applications and I am finding that there are so many that just don't work somewhere in the application process. Most say invalid email address ( no matter how many email addresses you have
I have 3 different types whatever you enter does not work ) Many applications after you fill out all the necessary information won't let you submit because it shows a sad face with error 404 on the screen . And... see more
