Since I was laid off this position I have not had a job since IN two years I have put in application with many company and have not even got a call for an interveiw.I don't understand because I have been working since the age of sixteen and now not having a income has prevented me from a lot of normal living.Also I have a student loan debt that I will not be able to pay until I receive a job,among that and others issue I still apply everyday, call and continue to keep trying and hoping that the situation will change for me.

Kimberly, You can be slighted by a former employer but it's not good to air your grievances to a potential new employer. You should be focused on selling your skills and abilities. When asked what happened at your last job, say something like you learned a hard lesson about regular communication to ensure you were meeting expectations and not wait until it was too late because you thought management would let you know in advance. You show your ability to function as a team member, not someone needing special attention. Your best revenge is to succeed. You show that even when you're knocked down, you have the ability to get back up and keep going.

Your story has become all too common. I completely relate to your situation. I have worked since I was 16. I've never really not had a job. I worked through college and from the time I graduated. Two years ago I was laid off from my job of 12 years and have not been able to find a job since. After applying for 100+ positions it has become harder and harder to stay positive. I wish you the best of luck!

For as many years that you have been working what have you been doing not to receive an interview in over 2 years I've only been unemployed since October and I have received interviews on top of interviews and several offers but I believe my situation is because I have a career in my field and I have been in my field for 18 years

Hello Kimberly, Make sure you exhaust all possibilities of finding a job. Try something new, don't settle for what you have always been doing.

Please tell me the resume that you have posted on this site is not the same one you're sending to employers.

Try a niche. There are things some people are not able to do well without the proper training. If you have that training, exploit it. Working since the age of sixteen shows a level of responsibility. Make sure your looking at things properly. They are not all against you; sometimes they just don't do it for you. not my words--from the boss explore all options

Hi Kimberly: I would suggest to call ask for a deferment for your student loan. In regards to employment, apply to some temp agencies while your looking for a full time. Check out Robert Half
