Have You Heard Back From the Employer?
I thought this might help better understand why? This article I found will help you better understand the reason. Don't let it get you down!

Sometimes we are pretty hard on ourselves. We think that just because we reach a certain age that we can no longer do something.
This is one of my favorite quotes because it reminds me that it's never too late to dream a new dream and to go after it.
So set those goals for yourself TODAY and let's make them happen!
What are some of YOUR dreams?
Married 8 years and now divorced. Have that gap in my employment history now...any suggestions???
I have been doing career coaching for many years. Just finished creating a 4 part series for people at my company that are being impacted by an acquisition and will be in the job market soon. There are a lot of resume trends people are not aware of:
1. DO Not put more than 10-15 years of work experience if you have it.
2. DO NOT put the year you graduated from any school...college or high school.
3. Do not put your birth year in your email... see more
Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated. I worked for 10 years as a graphic artist in the apparel industry and was recently laid off due to downsizing. Reality is hitting me hard few positions are out there to replace it, as I search. I understand I need to look outside of my circle but how do I create a resume in a field I haven’t worked in but can do. I.E., reception or floor person in a store? The only jobs in my chosen profession was... see more
Hello everyone. I know that many of you out there send out resume' after resume' ( after resume ' ! ) for job openings and may not be getting any or few bites. May I suggest then composing a good cover letter to accompany your resume' when applying for jobs ? I have been hired before based on my cover letter. A good one can better describe your skills, accomplishments, and qualifications to a prospective employer, giving them a better idea of who... see more
Is it unethical to leave experience off a resume to not appear overqualified for a job?
Jesse Grune wrote in a recent post:
Well, the next time I apply for a no experience job with a minimum highschool diploma, I will not add my Bachelor degree. That makes me disqualified for the job
While this seems harmless and you are just doing what you have to do to land a job, are there any reasons why could be a bad idea? I know background checks happen... see more
O.k- 1st you are not alone! Second- I can help you with some pointers that will increase your odds. First let me tell you about me- I am a Technical Recruiter with 20 years of exp. who came to this site during my search. The site has been so great- People helping people! Now that I have a position, I formed a group called- Ask a Senior Recruiter anything! You can read my other posts there (I think). I don't ever email people as a group or bug... see more
I been looking for work everyday for a month and it's still getting me no job opportunities, I have a resume and it's seems to be a descent one but I haven't gotten a job yet. So perfecting my resume would be number #1 on my list to do, please can anyone share some good advice? Thank you
I’m very baffled by the endless job sites. It’s been two months since I was laid off and thrown back in the deep waters of job searching. I immediately signed up to two familiar sites for job listings and of course LinkedIn. But I notice when I apply online these links take me to agencies. Never to direct companies. Are my applications going into some database waste pail? Yet I also see the same job posting again and again for the same position... see more
I'm not sure what the deal is I have applied for so many jobs and nothing is happening. I have a job to tie me over but it just doesnt pay enough. I have tweeked my resume but nothing has worked. If anyone wants to look my resume over and give me some tips. I have many bosses and coworkers that would vouch for me. It would be greatly appreciated.
