I had my first interview last week, exactly, seven days. I was told I'd be contacted this week in regards to coming in for a second interview. Do I give them more time to contact me? It took them a month to call me after I sent them my resume.
Meet Nailah and Martin!
Two different people who truly love what they do, which is driving a truck.
Sometimes in life, you need to think outside of the box.
When a friend suggested that Nailah attend truck driving school she stood in front of her in high heels and a dress and thought NO way was this for her. Today she happily says, “I am in a place where I don’t have to want for anything. I am happy. I don’t have bill collectors calling me…
Ok, so what's rule #1 on resumes? It is simply: Remember what they are for.
They are to make the reader think they'd like to learn more about you and/or to meet you. That's it.
A good resume gets someone to call you to learn more.
They do NOT get you hired.
You do NOT need to tell every detail and life story.
You need to write it in summary form, with results and with the goal of wanting the reader to think:
Had an interview at Best Buy two days ago and loved the store I applied to. I hope I get the job. The employees seemed so nice and the discount would definitely help me out. I guess I will see what happens. Anyone else work there before? What do I do now?
I recently graduated from the University of Toledo in December majoring in finance. I had an internship with a local company in the area that is about it for relative job experience. After graduation I took a job in financial services and I am quickly learning this is not a job for me. I started applying to other jobs about a month, month in a half a go and have yet to receive anything back besides rejection emails. I really want to get a job in…
I applied for a trainee program for a company and they proceeded with my application by telling me to take an aptitude exam, a written exam and a psychologic exam followed by the first interview.
As I did my first interview, they said they would get back to me in two weeks, so I only sent a follow up/thank you email when the 2 weeks approached. After one month since I sent the email from 2 weeks after the interview, I did not get any reply so I…
I just wish I knew why no companies have gotten back to me, other than a few emails saying we're moving on to other applicants. I've been putting in applications for about 8 months now and it seems like the only people near me that get hired are college students. I'm just looking for basic jobs, like coffee shops, retail, grocery, etc because I don't have a degree & I'm on disability, so I can't make too much money & can't work in overheated…
I have a job interview today at 11am. I also have one tomorrow at 1pm. Lets just say the 1st interview goes well & they want to hire me. What do I say? Is it a good idea to tell them I have another interview tomorrow and I want to see what they will offer me, if I'm hired? The interview isn't for a few hours so any responses today would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone!
I have a 2nd Interview they just need to confirm on Interviewers schedule to know when exactly they will interview me.
Is this a good sign?
Today I called to check on a job application. I love the job, there are good benefits, low pay but I would love the position; plus there’s plenty of room to grow.
When the hr person answered the phone, I told her my name and her first reaction was “I remember your name”. I know that my name is not very common but I also know that I have everything they ask for (masters’ degree, experience in customers service; high computer skills, etc). She…
