Not qualified

I'm so annoyed. I interviewed for a position that I knew I was a fit for, I have done that kind of work for 6 years. Yes it was a little different, but it was a Family support specialist. Helping with child abuse assessment. I work now as a sexual assault advocate and my previous job was a family support specialist working with families with children who have mental health diagnosis or disability.

Never Lie In an Job Interview

As we all know, job interviews are intensely stressful occasions. If you REALLY want the job, the stakes are also incredibly high and you might feel a slight mistake could cost you the chance at landing the job. Given the pressure, some people are tempted to fudge their accomplishments and background a bit. They figure if adding a few years of experience that they'll triumph over other candidates, and what the interviewer doesn't know won't hurt…

Am I too old or over qualified

FEEDBACK

After 100's of no thank you emails I got sick of it, so in the last few weeks I've been asking why I was overlooked--today I got some feedback! I have 8 1/2 years of college and 9 years in my industry and I'm still at a loss of what to put on my resume. This is a catch-22, If I put all of it, it's too long and pretentious. If I don't put enough, then I get overlooked. Where is the happy medium....well today I was told it's not enough employee-ce

Never give up

After looking for as good job since the middle of December, I was ready to just give up. Interviewed for numerous positions and I get Well your over qualified or Sorry but we found candidates that matched better. But I kept on and finally landed a good job. The pay is ok but since I get a military pension I can work with it. So just don't give up out there. There is a job somewhere out there with your name on it.

I applied for a job but the employer told me she felt I had too much experience after reviewing my resume. As a result she noted in the company data base that I should not be hired by their company, So even though I applied at a different location with the same company the other manager said she would not hire based on what based on what the other manager had placed in my file. She said they were looking for long term employee and she felt I…
