The question that I have is what are you applying for? If the position is a carrier, then there are positions open in most cities. But you don’t apply with the cities you apply with the District that covers that particular city. Example, Montebello may be in Los Angeles’ district so when you apply for any position your application needs to specify both the city and district that you are interested in. There are positions available, you just need to keep trying. Talk to your local Post Office, you’ll get more information from the local management.

Good luck

Go shopping for employers don't wait for the employer to come to you!

OK I AM HEARING THAT EMPLOYERS ARE GHOSTING ALOT OF PEOPLE, AND PEOPLE CANT FIND A JOB. WELL INSTEAD OF WAITING FOR THE EMPLOYER TO COME TO YOU, GO TI THE EMPLOYERS. MEANING GO IN THE INTERNET TYPE IN YOUR AREA OF EXPERTISE. MEAN WHILE YOU MAY NEED TO GET A JOB OUTSIDE OF YOU COMFOET ZONE SO YOU HAVE MONET FLOW COMING IN. I PERSONALLY DONT WANT TO HEAR HOW HARD IT IS TO GET A JOB BECAUSE THERE ARE TONS OF THEM OUT THERE! KEEP GOING FORWARD!

Depends on the company, many places are willing to train the right candidate. Many places prefer someone will prior welding experience and will administer a welding test as part of the interview. Being able to read and interpret blueprints is also a plus. Other companies, depending on the job, may require an associates. Most of those jobs are pipe welders.

It depends on what kind of fabricating you’re wanting to do. I would find a school that’s affiliated with NCCER and enroll in a pipe fitting class. That way you are trained and taught the correct way. After you graduate the school should help you find a job.

I wouldn't say "basic" . You need an in depth working knowledge of electricity welding Hydraulics Pneumatics Electric motor control. And you need to have good communication skills as well as being able to figure things out. Troubleshooting. Finding root problems and being proactive

What is a good explanation if an interviewer asked why I want to do this job which is in a totally different career from which I have been doing in the last 5 years?

I'm currently applying for jobs in automotive mechanic/technician or mechanic but my background I have done in the last 5 years is Massage Therapy. I haven't done interviews in a long time and so far I'm struggling to explain my interest and eagerness in learning a new skill and totally switching careers. Telling people I'm very interested in that field, it was always something I was interested in learning better and I love working with my hands and are interested in learning how things work has so far not been a good enough explanation for the last 2 interviews I have had. Why is it so complicated for those interviewers to understand that some people like to learn new skills or decide to suddenly go into a totally different career? I'm frustrated. #jobsearch #interview #advice #education #careerchange

I have been out of work since April 28 2020. At this point, I'm applying for multiple jobs every day. Everyone is saying that employers are desperate to fill positions, but the experience I have is over qualified. I was Field engineer with PSS than Eckoh is UK company for 10 years than they laid me off and after 8 months they posted my position :( I reapplied and they told me I was not qualified . #employers #laidoff #advice
