I have recruiters call me with jobs 'they' think I can do. I look at the e-mails they send me and do not see any of the software I have experience and knowledge of. The recruiters find 'one word' in my LinkedIn profile and extrapolate that I can do the job they want filled so a credit comes their way. I have posted that I do not wish to relocate, but most recruiters ignore that statement. What gives?

Yeah this seems to be a common trend among online email recruiting practices and correspondence. My guess is that... see more

Below is a calculator to determine what a 'living wage' would be in your location. Do you think this is accurate?
Jobcase believes every employer should help provide either a living wage or a pathway to it. We understand that not every job will be able to pay a living wage. But we believe employers should provide one of the following 3 cases for every job:
a) provide a living wage
b) if providing a sub-living wage, THEN provide an internal... see more

The employer or recruiter has your resume, but still expects you to fill out a long job application, or visa versa. They have your job application, but also want a Resume or CV. Seems like its like they are checking off boxes even if the request is a waste of time for you and them. Sort of like a teacher who sends home, home work for the sake of home work. Even if its not related to the work done in class.

This year my uncle, a CAD Design Drafter makes what should be his 40th year anniversary in the drafting field. A well earned achievement comprised of hard work and dedication that should be celebrated, but sadly for him, he’s currently unemployed. Working since the age of 18 he’s made every effort possible to stay with one company for as long as possible but as we all know, there are always the dreaded layoffs, usually from lack of work... see more

I feel like employment agencies and prospective employers are not actively reading resumes. They are skimming them, seeing a skill or something they need and not actually reading what the person is looking for. My current job is working in sales, administration and human resources. All of them send me job offers for sales, sales, sales and don't read my cover letter or my summary stating that I am seeking a job as an Administrative... see more

How many of you have had my issue?

Every once in a while I get an e-mail from one of these types. Its annoying because its never for jobs I am qualified for. Like in my case its allays engineering jobs. Even tho none of my resumes or job sites show I know anything of the sort, or have the education in any type of engineering.

I kind of wish they would get their act together. Do a better job of searching out candidates. Instead of filling up... see more

When people for some reason think I have a Graphic Design background because I have an animation degree. They sure don't know a lot about animation and out training. Most of us with animation training would not do well as graphic. designers. #graphicdesign #animation #degrees #animationtraining #recruiters #rant #annoyed #art #training

I think everyone gets that to a certain degree in their own fields especially when you get more specialized. Just... see more

What are some of the experiences you've had with recruiters. I'm so frustrated. I have interviews via phone and I'm told I'll get a call back. Just this week a recruiter called and emailed me about a job I applied for. I've since left 2 different messages and no response. I just don't understand.
