So, I just recieved my MBA this year, which I am personally pretty happy about. But I have been having a very hard time landing worthwhile interviews and absolutely no job offers. I have found that I have now been getting passed on jobs because I am overqualified. Yet, if I apply for a slightly higher position I am under qualified. So my question is, should I just remove it from my Resume?

If you think you nailed that interview or the recruiter said, Keep in touch, don't just sit and wait for the phone to ring with a job offer. Instead, be proactive. There are things you should do after a job interview that can increase the odds of getting a second interview or landing a job offer.

I graduated with a Bachelors in Accounting. Soon after I graduated, i worked for a CPA firm for one year and then i worked for a multi-national investment company for about three years. I had a baby and decided I need to take some time off... fast forward 7 years, I had three more kids. It didn’t make sense to work since my entire paycheck would be going to day care. Now my kids are old enough to be in school and now I am ready to start my... see more

I feel like I’m being punished for being a single parent. Employers do not work with you when it comes to your children! I have been denied jobs because I have to work days in order to get to my daughter. It’s just not okay! I’m discouraged at this point. I went to school and received my degree for nothing apparently! I just don’t know what to do at this point I am afraid that I won’t be able to pay bills.....

Try doctors’ offices. They usually close early and do half days weekly or biweekly.

My position unexpectedly closed back in May of this year. I was blindsided & then I sulked for 2 months in anger. Then I decided to get out into the world of job hunting. Application after application, interview after interview. Then I gave in & went to an employment agency just to further my disappointment. Believe me I'm still going to accept a job offer when it finally presents itself because I need fuel (money) so that I could make more... see more

Thanks for the positivity, Julie Ficarra !

I’m a Nurse Practitioner with a Masters degree and 28 years of experience. I left my last job after 8 1/2 years and have been applying for just about everything within a 20 mile radius of my home. I get lots of phone interviews, most of which lead to “in person” interviews, all of which have been followed by “while we are impressed with your credentials, we are pursuing other candidates at this time” letters. I guess I should mention that I will... see more

I apply for stuff that's supposed to be entry-level or training provided. But I keep getting rejection emails after another. It's getting annoying. I have plenty experience in verities of stuff but they won't give me an interview. I have a highschool diploma as well. So, what's the deal?

I can totally relate to what you are saying. I even have been rejected by companies who provide the exact same... see more

I have a job, but I want a career. I have taken a job that don't give you a raise, no promotion, no sick time earn. I know I had to; bills were not going to stop coming in. I have applied at places I know I am capable of doing the work. I have an Associate degree in Business Administration and certificate in medical billing and records. It's goine to waste along with the skills I learned. Its frustrating. Any advice?? Thanks

After some careful consideration, I have decided to continue my academic journey and return to school next month to earn my PhD. I have an extreme passion for learning, organizational change, and motivating the workforce. I also admit I have an even stronger obsession with taking care of my children. So world of industrial and organizational psychology here I come, full throttle!

That is so fantastic Angelina Elliott ! Way to be a go-getter! Wishing you the BEST of luck on your journey
