Really over my employer

I have applied for 18 positions at my employer and I have not received any promotions.Long story short, if you are not in the clique of the good o’l boys, you will not get promoted. Doesn’t matter if you are qualified and have an education. My employer goes as far as changing the qualifications to get their buddy in that position. Bottom line, I AM DONE WITH THE GOOD O’L BOYS MENTALITY.

possible upcoming situation

one thing that seems to be happening to companies is that they need workers and the ones who want to work are to old meanwhile the workers that companies want [the younger ones] don't want to start at the bottom - unless there is a quick promotion. the big question to ask about this is will there be a day when companies can't find workers due to this cycle.

I think it depends on the profession and also the employer Roy Veteto but you're right in that the cycle does exist in many cases…

Can't Move Up!

I am at a job that I really enjoy! I interviewed for a position within the company, got the job but couldn't take it because of the hours... I have a 11-month-old daughter and finding 2nd shift care is difficult... There was another job that I didn't apply for because I thought I wasn't qualified but when I saw non-qualified people getting 2nd interviews, I told myself I am gonna go for everything no matter what and that the right opportunity is…
