350 plus times God says Fear Not, death doesn't exist anymore and never did if your in christ and you obey the Commandments, you never die.Only those who aren't covered in the blood, Spirit of the lord of Hosts. They die not us,.So never fear something that doesn't exist. God's got you and I got you at least for 1000 yrs

Agreed, if you cost you money to get a job, there is an issue.

Check out Maximus, or their partner hiring agency AppleOne. It's work from home, you just need your own set up a wifi (connected with ethernet cable) and your set, the pay is pretty great compared to other call center's.

I'm quite sure if you are over a certain age, you are not getting hired for any job unless it a is a specialized job for which you are highly qualified. I am a 58 year old with so much experience in quite a few areas and get turned down for "not having enough experience" for jobs that are being given to people half my age. And I'm quite positive they think I'm trying to take their job when all I'm interested in is paying down my business loans from when my business closed due to Covid. So I'm getting my CDL A license again and going back to truck driving then restart my business after a year. This job market sucks for older people. Even retired Veterans like me.

I've been applying at Walmart since June of 2020. My son applied and got a job within 2 weeks. He's 19 and has never had a job. I have more experience in retail than most of the people working there. Yet I get turned down for "not as much as experience" as the person they decided to hire. I'm sure it's because I'm a disabled Veteran and I'm 58 years old. I've passed their regular employment assessment and their leadership assessment and pharmacy assessment. Yet I can't even get a call back and I get constant emails turning me down for younger people. It's getting quite depressing.

Apply on careers at Walmart. You need to update application every few months. It is not just experience that gets you hired it is also your test score. The higher the score the faster you get hired.

My best advice

Keep a positive attitude, prepare yourself both professionally and academically for your career choice and show confidence during interviews (not arrogance). When in an interview think about every question briefly before answering and ensure you answer the question specifically asked. Smile a lot

Other Reasons You Didn’t Get the Job

A form rejection email is often not an accurate depiction of why you were not offered the job. Here are some other (very valid) reasons why you may not have received an offer, despite what you were told.

  • Hiring Freeze
  • Always Meant for an Internal Employee
  • Company is Afraid to Pull the Trigger
  • Found Someone Cheaper
  • Company Decided to Delay the Hire
  • Job Went to the Boss’s Niece
  • Company is Restructuring

Keep this in mind the next time you’re told “you weren’t a fit for our needs” or “we decided on a candidate with more experience” or not told a thing.

The ACTUAL reason could have absolutely nothing to do with you.

Of course, if this becomes a pattern, it’s possible your interviewing skills simply need some polishing. That’s easy enough to correct. I work with job seekers all the time in this area.

Bottom line: If a company decides not to move on with you (or never gives you any type of response), realize it’s their loss and continue to progress forward with your job search.

Hi @Julie Kramer! I think it would depend on which job you were interested in. What role are you thinking about applying to?? Here is some info on careers at Sentara Healthcare. Take a look to get an idea of their culture and hiring expectations!

Sometimes it can take hiring managers/recruiters a few business days to get back to candidates after an #interview. Have you followed up with the company since your interview? This is often a great step to take if you have not heard back in a few days. For more tips, check out this great page filled with advice about everything from crafting a perfect resume to knowing how (and when) to follow up with hiring managers. Good luck, @Eduardo Villalobos!
