Multiple interviews

I interviewed through zoom with the same company for the same position 3 times with 3 different managers and was told I was a perfect fit and a shoe in. After not hearing back for three weeks I emailed the hiring manager asking if they had moved on or what and was told I wasn’t chosen because they “didn’t want to remotely train someone” and that they loved me so much so I should make my resume align more “accounts payable” and interview again with a different manager. Needless to say I knew I wouldn’t be chosen as my experience is accounts receivable and they don’t even want to train (insane if you ask me). I have applied to every accounting job that I’ve seen and haven’t gotten any other interviews. Feeling defeated. #hr #experience #rejection

Don’t give up just yet. Keep trying. Maybe this line of work isn’t right for you, try something else.

Donna, hang in there! I fell in a job right out of college, no interview or anything. I worked with that same company for 15 years. I quit because I thought I had it all to start my own company....we’ll I quickly found out it was a lot harder than I first thought and then you throw in a dash of pandemic and yea, well I’m interviewing for jobs, for the first time ever at the fresh age of 39. Time and time again I hang up or walk out thinking, man, I killed that interview only to never hear from them again. I just try to stay positive and think that is Gods way of telling me that it wasn’t the right fit. Stay positive and blessed!!

Donna, Nick is absolutely correct. This market has become a lot more competitive with this pandemic. Please stay the course, the right one will definitely come along.

Here's my story: I interviewed with a Digital Marketing Company, which out of my professionalism, I will not reveal, with 5 different people, Recruiter, Hiring Manager, Accounts Manager, Project Manager, VP of Project Management, Creative Director (2) and last but not least the VP of Account Services who manages everyone forementioned. After 4 weeks of grilling and questioning how I would perform my duties, I get an email from the Recruiter telling me the Hiring Manager has decided to go with another candidate. Now, I know I was a bit over qualified and can do the job in my sleep, but why waste my time to tell me I'm not qualified. I honestly believe this company is doing some great work and is ahead of many other agencies I've looked, but I also believe everyone I spoke to was just trying to learn more of what I knew and how I did it to benefit themselves. Has that been the experience of anyone else? So Donna, what happened to you is happening to many other candidates and Ghosting has become the norm with these recruiters who are only out to pick your brains and help themselves gain the knowledge you have. Stay positive for yourself and know that it's their loss, not yours.

Hang on Donna. This just means that it is their loss. You will get something. Btw, you said that you were in accounts receivable? Check out NJtransit and look into the Compliance and Budgeting I knew they had an opening as of last week. God speed and stay encouraged. I too have been out of work since May. Our time IS coming. Stay strong & positive

Hi Donna Graves: You may not want to do this but I would suggest signing up with a staffing agency. In fact, sign up with several. Make sure your resume is outstanding, include reference letters if you have them. Then, even though you are signed up with staffing agencies, you continue to look on your own. You sound very smart, young lady, and I don't think it'll take you long to land something. Having a temporary job will be better for your resume than no job and in a temp job, you'll be able to network. Maybe someone you meet will know someone who is looking for someone like you. Also, working temp jobs will show you are flexible, open to new things, new processes, new technology. It's one thing to work for one company and get comfy but if you are going from one business to another, it shows you are wanted and flexible. So give temporary staffing agencies a chance and see what they can do for you. I do know that many times organizations use staffing agencies because they don't want to do all the paperwork associated with a new hire and then find out the new hire is not a good fit. So each company you go in to, show them how well you do your job, how well you get along with others. Keep a smile on your face and a spring in your step as you happily do your job. Let these organizations fall in love with you so they can see what a good fit you would be. PLEASE don't give up. This is a tough time. Keep breathing, keeping putting one foot in front of the other. Make sure all your offerings are top notch (resume, cover letter, reference letters, work experience, etc.) and have faith. YOU are a good worker. I KNOW something GOOD will happen for you!!!
