Why every company is hiring but nobody’s getting hired

The American hiring system may be broken. If you see SO MANY open jobs, but aren't getting interviews, you aren't going crazy. It's a problem.

How have you cut through the noise to get an #interview? #jobsearch

Michele Cusack I often wonder that myself because you can click on a "link" that goes nowhere. Pops you right back to the message with said link. Worse yet, an agency reached out to me. I'm not adverse to agencies but I expect them to be like any other interview, for instance: you tell somebody to be there at a set time, you should have somebody at the reception desk. NOT. So I waited and heard someone using the copy machine on the other side of the wall. They never looked to see if the 1000 appointment might have come in. It was 1010. By 1015, I was done. Should I have announced myself? Perhaps. However, my thinking was if I don't hear people talking on the phone are they really busy, do they care about their jobs? Worst thought was if they didn't care about their appointments, what kind of placement would they really do? I just walked out.

If you want a job, then it's probably better to apply directly to the Company you're interested in, rather than through these many jobsites. Though I had no experience in the jobs I was applying to...I got three job offers in One week. All I did was go directly to the Companies that said they were hiring.( their own websites)

@Craig Corrow I get a mix of offers but the cool thing is you can tell indeed the pay rate you’re looking for and they will only promote you resume to employers who meet that rate. Also right now the ball is in our court because of the pandemic. You have multiple employers with open position that people aren’t taking. Make sure you have great qualifications, apply and when you have that interview tell them what you will accept. You’d be surprised at how many employers will up that pay just to get you in the role.

@Trista Salvucci actually what I was saying is to use LinkedIn since it is a whole networking website where companies actually manage and advertise their open job postings like I stated before indeed does not verify their job postings I can make a job posting on LinkedIn it does not mean I have an actual company to hire anyway. So a lot of problems with indeed is that people are being scammed and the interviews are not real. Thanks 😊

I think for advertising to get people coming in to purchase something like foods::computers skills prevent older people from getting job

I would say that most of these ads are fishing expeditions. it is hard to stand out when they send out a big net to catch potential employees but give perfectly good people 30 seconds review because there isn o time for anything else. It is like the lottery, out of a trillion choices, the one that gets hired is probably a fluke.

I feel you. Get a lot of scammers. Nothing worth anything. Even got malware set to my devices after sending my application. 72 applications in one day. I have never had so much trouble finding work. Ever. You'd think working from home would be the bees knees. Prayers that something changes in our favor for the better very soon. I'm losing hope.
