The Waiting Game

The one thing that takes forever in the job hunting process, is the waiting game. You do millions of interviews, video interviews, phone interviews, face to face interviews, and you know in ur heart and mind you nailed them.But now it's the waiting for that special call or email saying "Your Hired" I watch my phone check my emails 80 times a day but still...Waiting ....

The waiting game is tough ill agree. It usually happens this way for me. I end up getting offered a couple of jobs at the same time and then an forced to choose. I have to admit i do not like or agree with tbe way tbe hiring process has been pimped out by all of these job board services and still believe that just getting out and going in person to meet employers is the best way to get hired even if it requires an online application going directly to the organziation for me has always been the best way. This should especially be done in non corporate America

I'm of the opinion that waiting is what I'll do when I'm dead. If someone hasn't hired me right now then they're rolling dice on whether they'll be able to have me.

Interview was short

Had an interview that lasted only about 15 minutes and hope that isn't a bad sign. Interviewer gave a lot of info and I answered his questions best I could. Played his cards close to the vest but he did say he would contact the recruiter later and did remind me to give him my application just before interview was over. Hope that is a good thing. Fingers crossed.

Good Luck! I interviewed, took a typing and math test. The interview took me 3 hours. I just knew I had the jobs. I was asked when can I start, did I have any vacation planned, and I was give the salary and shifts. The next week, I received an email saying I did not get the job. To say this, time doesn’t matter.

Hey Rob Dyer,

It depends on the interview. Was this a preliminary round interview? Normally a preliminary round is 15-30 minutes. Preliminary as in to get to know you.

Waiting for replies

I have had 2 job interviews this week just to be told that they are still interviewing that they will let me know something by the end of the week. Well it's the end of the week and no reply. Should I contact them and check on job or take this as a sign that I didn't get job and continue my search? Wish they would just tell me something at time of interview.

Drama at #L'Auberge

I got fired. Yep. For doing my job, watching players play and dealers deal. Player didn't like how I watched him play, complained and had help orchestrating his complaint by a Superior that went to HR. During my HR hearing, they offered me the chance to RESIGN, lol, nope. Fire me for doing my job, please. And they did. Their loss.

That sucks Deneine Luse - but you're completely right - it is their loss! Check out this conversation, as it's a great resource for tacking the 'why did you get fired' question in a future interview. It will definitely help!

Have you been looking for a new job? Have you tried using the job search tool here on Jobcase?

Just follow these steps!

1. Click on Jobs & Companies at the top of the page, or head over [here] (http://www.jobcase.com/jobs/search)

2. Enter a job into the search field where it says Job Title, Keywords, or Company.

3. Add in your location by filling in your City and State OR zip code. Then click the magnifying glass to search.

4. Once the list is up, click on “View Job" of any you are interested in and then apply.

We're rooting for you Deneine!

Military member having a hard time finding a job

I need advice, please! I have been looking for a full time position as an Executive or Administrative Assistant with absolutely no luck! I am bilingual 100%, have over 23 years of experience working in the US and Europe and worked as an EA up until 2017. I am a member of the Air National Guard and was offered a full time position in my career field as an MP. I am coming up to my 2 year mark and desperately want to go back working as an Admin but am unable to. I have applied for countless jobs and barely get any responses back. Sometimes I believe it’s because I am a protected veteran but then I opt out of responding and nothing. Is the market really that bad or is it because I am in the military? I am starting to lose hope. Any thoughts or advice?

Thank you all!

Hi Jessica Jara - I know Anthony Harrington is a former military member. He might be able to provide some advice on how to transfer skills from a military career into a professional private one!

I don't think that you are getting explicitly ignored because you are a veteran. It's all too possible that the area that you are in is oversaturated for the need for administrative assistants.

Hang in there - the job search is rough, but you will make it. You definitely have the tenacity and strength to get where you need to go - just keep chasing opportunities and you will get it.

Keep me updated. The community is here for you!
