The ATS could be stopping you!!

Feeling frustrated because you applied to a TON of jobs and you still aren’t hearing back???

The problem could be that your resume is missing some important information!

If a company uses what’s called a applicant tracking system or ATS, your resume will go through a screening process. If it’s missing certain elements it will be pushed aside and not viewed by that particular company.

So, let’s look at some tips on how to use keywords to update…

Great pointers! Thanks Lenin!

THe Shutdown

I accepted a position from the US Census Bureau on Dec 6th of 2018. I have completed all my paperwork and everything. Does anyone know how long it takes to get a background check done for a clerk-receptionist position? I know that they had a shutdown but now they are open once again. I was wondering why it takes so long to get employed by the federal government?

I don't know what to do anymore...

I'm a teacher that is what I do Best. On Monday Dec 17th, they terminated my employment saying that I was not a good match for what they were looking for. I've been teaching math and science, English ESL & French FSL for almost 12 years without any complaints!!! I always had students with either ADD H trouble or with the Asperger Syndrome. It was a private school and they wanted near perfect scores for all students. Basically ''cosmetic'' A & B…

That's OK. We'll just hire those that are
Ignorant to teach, Teacher.

To employees treated unfairly

The reason we are all treated poorly by employers is because we need them more than they need us. How did this happen?

The primary culprit is the minimum wage. Because it has been raised so high, it becomes more difficult to afford a full staff. Business must cut back, and many many more people are under employed or unemployed.

Now we've got to refer to the law of supply and demand. When supply is high and demand is low, prices drop…

I think these are interesting ideas and I would hate to work somewhere where I felt that if someone was nicer to my boss they…

Do we need to look back at our own US history

A lot of the the things we condemn others for were also used by the United States

The Corporation of the United States of America

When we The People, begin to understand and accept that in the good old USA there is no such thing as job security the better off we will be. I had to learn that the hard way after years of micro management, power plays, and the flexing of authority just because they could, not because they have to.

The only way to go in this country now is to create your own business, this is the only way that you can be assured that fairness of anykind will be…

Depressed and Dont Know What to do.

About three years ago I earned my bachelor’s degree in political science and graduated with honors. However, I haven’t been able to find a job with my degree. I work at my family’s restaurant and I feel trapped in it because I can’t get out of it. Does anyone have any suggestions?
