Am I too old or over qualified

Why doesn't anybody call back?

I've been searching for work for months now and have had dozens of interviews. I meet the qualifications for the job, dress appropriately, and do well during interviews, but no-one calls me back afterward when they say they will. I even make follow-up calls to make sure they haven't forgotten. I've done all I can, so why don't they do their part?

I have the same problem. I walk out of an interview where they said they would call me either way, hey I don't expect a call , but…

Time to follow up!

Don’t let employers forget about you once the job fair ends...

Now is the time to follow up!

-Do it sooner rather than later
1-2 business days after the job fair is ideal.

-Make it personal
Remember that employers have met and spoken to MANY people at the fair, so it’s unlikely they will automatically remember you. If you had a good conversation, make note of something you discussed and mention it in the email.

-Reach out to the right people

Good luck to all of those who attended the job fair!

age discrimination

I went for a job interview that I was well qualified for and the Hiring manager asked me if I was 51? Well they said that they will call me in a week.It has been almost 3 weeks no call. was her asking me my age discrimination?

What I am seeing is they do not ask your age but when did you graduate high school, Pretty much same thing, Agree?

They called me!

Been looking for work since late June, was getting very discouraged at this point. My best friend of 36 years died suddenly on Labor Day. I had to decline some interviews, because I just couldn’t emotionally do it. I posted on Facebook about and old friend I worked with, called me from a local hospice. They happened to have an opening! I also know the office manager and their patient care coordinator use to be my boss. I met with them yesterday…

Keep going

I read this from others now it happened to me. I went on interview after interview and was turned down trying to get a better job.
One lady told me she thought she should pay me close to minimum wage for a job that should make a lot more based only on the fact I was a homemaker for 11 years, but I was working for 2 years at a different job. I told her thank you for her time and left the interview. I also filled out endless applications just…

Census Bureau Jobs

Has anyone else experienced the red tape involved with getting approved for a job at the Census Bureau? I applied December 6th of 2018 and I am still waiting on my background check to be approved. I do not smoke, do not drink and have no criminal past that I know of. I think they could make the process a little more streamlined to get people in there faster. Has anyone else experienced working for Federal Government and what were your experiences…
