I will NEVER again trust recruiters.

I've had nothing but problems. They get me into jobs and when there are problems they leave you hanging to dry. I had one that put me in a supposed customer service role only to be asked to.move dirty boxes. When I called my recruiter to let her know she calls back to say they claimed I fell asleep in training.
Another role was with a company that clearly didn't care enough about its regular employees that they were forced to buy their own…

So were you sleep in training? Sounds like you don't want to take responsibility

Your Job Search can Make you a Better Person

My job search has made me a better person, and yours can too. Here's how:

Accept that the world owes you NOTHING
Yep that's right. The world doesn't owe you a second look, let alone an interview,or a job. Those things are EARNED by standing out as the candidate who did their research, put in the real effort to understand the company and their needs, and you showed that you can be an asset to the company.

So remember, the world owes you…

Show me how.

Bad Luck / with a bad Decision

My last day of work was Nov 30th. I been looking for work, not every day but very active. I had interviews with expectations. Three weeks ago, I had three offers, One with a Bank as a Excel expert, Second with Kate Spade as Data Anayst and the Third with a Pool Company as Pools Maintenance Person. I chose the First one because my staring data was three days after job offer and it paid more than the other two and the commute was cheaper. The…

Hi William G Salamanca - I am sorry to hear about you being laid off. That really sucks. Who knows how the Kate Spade job would…

You folks are correct. Job hunting sucks having a professional resume done as of Thursday. Staffing companies suck even worse. Everybody lies right to your face. Personally I think staffing companies should be illegal. They get away with murder.

You sound very frustrated and I'm sorry. But please don't dismiss ALL staffing agencies and please don't say they should be…

Recruiters

How would you know if the recruiter is actually working with the said client, for pay and duration? I sometimes think maybe they are phishing collecting your info... what are your rights for making sure we are safe???
Any ideas or suggestions?

...Also find it odd that some recruiters/recruiting companies ask for gender, SS # , date of birth... suspect? Lawful? For a job…

I have been looking for a job more actively because a temp job is ending this month. My boss has said I can use him as a reference. I have been unemployed before the longest time lasting almost 8 months. I am a data engineer with strong database and scripting skills. I find a lot of recruiters are hungry to talk to me but none can get me an in person interview with the hiring manager. I go through positions like water and am always getting…

I don't see how this is helping. I am not getting in person interview with all the bullshit that gets factored in with management…

Recruiter negotiating salary after 2 interviews

A couple days ago I finished 2 rounds of interviews at a company. After interviewing two times, but before the 3rd round, the recruiter calls and says your asking is a bit too high. I said well we can negotiate on it when the time comes. Is this normal?

Note: The recruiter asked me what my salary asking was before interview and I gave him a range

I don't think that's unreasonable if you did your research to see what the current market is paying Jasmit Tarang ! Also there is…
