“Company not Interested in You”

Yesterday I had one job I applied for tell me the position has been filled already, I was never called for an interview but that’s not what this post is about. Now, I really wanted that job but I do have three other jobs that I have applied to and am waiting for an answer. That was yesterday. I never thought it would get as bad as what I saw today.

I applied at a Barnes and Noble in my area (the only Barnes and Noble in my area) as a part time…

Kayla, I totally understand where you are coming from. I got a rejection email today from a company called Jack Henry and…

1 page Resumes Maybe Enough

A resume more than 2 pages is too much. A resume is meant for relevant work history for jobs you are applying for. Of course there are exceptions - like a federal or military resume. Those are set to a specific criteria that had to be followed for document review.

Think strengths, growth and relevance for an outstanding resume.

I would say 1-2 pages is just enough, with one page being a strong preference! When reviewing your resume, it's best to be concise…

Having trouble finding a job

I have been searching for weeks now I apply for a job then I get a email saying that other candidates better match what we’re looking for I’m getting so sad I’ve been trying for sleeks as I said before.

Don't beat yourself up Jared Miller with that generic email. I have had that email come into my inbox MANY times before. You need…

Degree or experience

What do you feel is more important or do you think it is a combination of both that current employers are looking for?

I think making sure your resume shows that your experience matches closely with what they are currently seeking. That is the MOST…

It's all you got

Here is the way it seems to be. With the current job hiring manager choices, there is an approximate window from age twenty to forty-five that you are considered 'employable', then ageism becomes an issue and the managers lose their mind when they find out that one is over forty-five. They get to use the excuse that they 'found a more qualified' candidate and it is impossible to prove otherwise. I lack faith in hr to stand behind a candidate…

It rook a very long time for me to realize that ageism was most likely the reason that I got less than a 5% response to job…

Why even try!

I have two degrees and yet can’t get a job. Why go to school and end up owing all this money to loans. I feel like it was a waste of time because most employers say they want you to have experience; therefore they end up giving someone the job that doesn’t have a degree just because experience. It makes no sense!

Which is better, being overqualified or underqualified?

With all these jobs out there, is there any way to underqualify yourself if someone were to say you're overqualified? I don't want to reduce or increase the years of research experience I have under my belt, otherwise, I would see myself as a fraud. For some positions that require up to 10 yrs of experience, what type of person are they looking for? Thanks in advance.

I would not look too much into it. Instead, focus more on the fact that your resume is up to date and you possess the skills and…
