Extremely lost.

18 years of experience in Graphic Design and have applied for 307 positions...rejection after rejection. I wanted to see if anyone else has experienced the same thing. Yes, I've gone through 8 recruiters now and have revamped my resume at least 12 different times.

I'm not sure what to do or turn to anymore as I've run out of options and have exhausted every last option in trying to get hired somewhere. Very lost, any feedback is greatly…

I agree take a vacation. Try looking in other fields you can use graphic design anywhere. You might be happier in other fields…

Did you do your Homework?

Everyone one of us wants/needs to stand out when we get a coveted in-person interview.

Homework: Use Google to do some basic research. What exactly does the company do, what is there product? Where are they Headquartered at? How many employees? How many different locations do they have? And often you can find out has any of their jobs already been outsourced out of the country, or even to other companies. What are their short and long…

Alabama is an at will state. Can fire you,, even if dont like your hair color

I'm 72 now and...

I have been doing graphic design when the work comes. I have a relatively small Social Security benefit so I have to supplement... and pray alot! Fortunately I am up to date on all bills but I do not know where the next house payment is coming from. I have applied to dozens of recruiters and companies but have had no responses from these so-called hiring companies. I can only work part-time and I have tried to be flexible in work hours so…

Hi Robert. I would love to chat with you about how to scale up your services by transitioning into web design. Much higher spend…

Finally giving up.

I've applied for 250 job positions in my field with not a single one-on-one interview. Two year associate degree in Graphic Design with 18 years of experience along with eight different recruiters/professionals looking at my resume. You would think that the amount of experience over the years would help me out but it doesn't.

I'm out.

A #stressful #LMS,Inc. day

Embarkation days are very stressful. You want to make it smooth and be proactive to lessen any potential upset and/or disruption to the guest experience.

What I loved working at #LoneTreeCustomDesign

The wide array of products. The knowledge I now posses was immeasurable. The attitude of everyone who was involved with us was the best benefit out of the whole experience. Quality is the signature on every product. And everyone deserves the best.

What a great slogan Lucas Friesth !!!
