Being unemployed for a year and half

Are employers less excited about interviewing an applicant who has been unemployed for close to 2 years even when qualifications, education and experience are top notch?

Rightfully so, the employer wants someone they know will get up in the morning, and be able to make it in on time, as they did for the past 2 years. If you are off that long, you could not be looking very hard too. Most employers expect others (and governments) to find work within 26 weeks (1/2 year) which is generous to you. You can paint the house remodel and do other work to keep things newer cleaner and modern, or begin a new job skill, going to school or finding ways to improve yourself.

How Do I Find Out About A Company's Interview Process?

I know the easy answer is "just ask," but hear me out. I've been on two interviews already where the company has had me do "projects" as what I think they think is a skills test. The first one had me condense twenty pages of an 80 page technical document into a 1 page summary for a non-expert, and the most recent one had me do on-line reserach and create a PowerPoint presentation to be used as a pitch to a CEO/CFO who didn't know about the company. (This one I think was for an account they lost judging by the info they gave me.) Both of these "projects" took up hours to weeks of my time, both got high praise.... And yet I didn't get the job. So basically they got free work.

So my question is how do I find out if this is a company's M.O. during the initial interview without scaring them off for the wrong reason? I know some companies get jumpy and see it as presuming you already have the job if you ask about salary, benefits, etc. too soon. How do I ask about their interview process so that I don't get suckered like I did with these other two companies? Thanks!

I never heard if a company have you do a project before you're hired. Now a days some companies have you test takes assessment test to test your skills. Which ive gone through a few myself but a project oh no neither they hired you or they don't.

And for interview proccess you just ask them what you like to know there is no really interview process because every company conduct interview in their own ways. I would make a list of what you want to ask and present yourself professionally that is all to it.

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 feeling of positivity like “everything sounds great..” or “your skill set and answers were impressive..” or even “based on your personality and expertise you’d be a great fit with the team or company”. Then either I don’t get a call back, or receive a call or an email saying - basically “thanks but no thanks”. I take notes about the position prior to interviewing and align what they are looking for to my experience, do research on the company and even the person/people I will be interviewing with plus follow up via email or phone right away and a few days later...but it seems it doesn’t matter. From the moment I wake up I have voicemails and missed calls regarding my resume. I call back and we chat about the position and my experience as it relates..everything sounds great..then nothing. I don’t know if it’s just me or that I have 20 years experience but no college degree or what is going on. I’ve never been out of work this long. I started on my career path as a FTE at a company where I learned a lot and progressed quickly. From being just an Admin in a QA area to assisting the team with test execution to supporting both roles and responsibilities full time until being given the title of Bus System User Specialist - just within 6 months - leasing my own team after 8 mos and just short of a year was a Project Manager. Unfortunately after 3 years was let go with a handful of others due to budget issues. I became a contractor from then til 5 years ago. I worked for various companies that used technologies, processes, etc that I wasn’t familiar with, but did not want to make a bad impression so I took it upon myself prior to onboarding as well as during my contract to take it upon myself and learn whatever it was I needed to know because I was expected to “hit the ground running” so I made sure I did just that. I have attended some college courses that were related to my career but did not receive a degree. I just do not understand what I am doing wrong...

IDENTIFY YOUR SKILL SETS

Identify your skill sets

Many people start their job search by looking at the job titles that sound most fitting to their career goals. While this method may prove to be successful for some, Glassdoor career expert Scott Dobroski suggests job seekers look at the required skills of a position instead. By doing this, Dobroski says employees will be able to identify the skill sets they already possess and the jobs that best match their experiences.

Also, since job titles are constantly changing, and different companies use different descriptive titles for positions, focusing on the required skills of a position can open your search up to job titles that you didn't even know matched your expertise.

Now, you have broaden your employment options by simply changing where you focus in your job seach.

I agree Patrick Coppedge ! Job titles, skills sets, etc. they ALL change and evolve and it's our job to keep up! I also think that employers tend to create more of a "wish list" when they set up the job description and often we are hesitant to apply if we don't feel we match up completely. When in doubt apply and put your best self forward. Always look beyond the title to see what the role is and if you truly want it. Thanks for sharing this insight, Patrick! : )

An easy way to get hired

The person who gets hired for a job Rarely has every skill or qualification the employer wants, and sometimes ( pretty often, actually) it's not the most skilled person who gets the job. Here's why, Employers will almost always hire someone who seemed honest, upfront and accountable in the interview room, even if it means offering the job to someone less talent, experience, skills, accomplishments and qualification's. Why, because talent and all those other things are Useless, if you don't have a good work ethic, aren't " coach able " and open to feedback, humble, accountable, if you mess up and make a mistake etc. In fact someone who's very talented but is stubborn and not open to feedback can be a boss worst nightmare. So make sure you highlight the right " soft skills " and positive personality traits in your interview. You'll get far more job offers if you do this.

Dwindling confiidence

I am a new graduate in psychology. I had many interview but am getting rejected at ever turn. I'm being to lose my confidence I ever finding a job soon. I evaluate my interview and I'm confused on what I'm doing wrong. When I get done with each interview I feel confident until I get the notice, the chose someone else for the job. I'm so lost and I dont know how to fix this. Am I doing something wrong? Am underqualified? Overqualified? I dont what to look my confidence. I just want someone to open the doors and I want to find a job that uses all my abilites and have a job I love. Where do I find my confidence? I dont want to give up but I feel so close. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Pray and ask God to go ahead of you for the next interview. Then after the interview when you get to your car pray again and thank God for being with you.

I think that perhaps a little more attention to detail might go a long way. Sometimes not getting a job after interviewing is caused by failure to properly get your thoughts across in an understandable way.
