I was laid off in 4/2020 due to C-19. I have been applying on almost every employment site with no luck. I have a lot of experience in the commercial and industrial HVAC industry, traveled the world as factory technical representative, and operated mechanical contracting business in a 50/50 partnership. Unfortunately, I cannot run service any longer due to physical restrictions, but my knowledge and work ethic(leadership skills) are my greatest assets. Employers are commenting on how impressive my resume is but they chose another candidate. This is the most common reply from employers. Not sure if my age, pay/benefit requirements, qualifications, or they are really not hiring? 🙏🇺🇸 #jobsearch #career #fulltime#benefits #discrimination #age #pay #benefits #compensation #leadership

I lost my job in the oil industry back in 2015. I went almost a year before I landed an opportunity to help out a company by coming to work for them while I am able to find a job. I fell in love with my job but they don’t want to budge with the salary, which is awful by the way, nor provide me with benefits. Keep in mind, I am a single mother with 2 kids who borrows money for rent every month. I have been looking like crazy, online, networking and working with recruiters. Why does it seem so hard to get a job these days? I feel like I am doing everything I should be doing. I have talked to several people regarding my resume which they say is great! I am not scared to talk to people. Is there any advice you can give that may help improve my efforts?
Hello All! I know if anyone would understand my current situation, it's the people on this messaging system. I was "let go" from my job on August 1st of 2016. Since I'm in the bank industry and I left on good terms with my last employer, I've had many people in the industry refer me to others in Commercial Banking. Since August, I've reached out to many people but few with actual job openings. I recently interviewed with a bank who wouldn't be ready to hire until early summer. I'm also waiting to hear back from another bank that i interviewed with three weeks ago. When I met with them they told me that they were interviewing six out of many applicants and at the time that they had already narrowed it down to four and I was one of the four. Ive since spoken with them but they still had one more interview to do and that was last Monday. I left a message today inquiring about the status but haven't heard back. In the meantime, I just received my last unemployment payment, I'm a single woman with bills to pay. I met with a temp agency back in November as my "Plan B" and spoke with them yesterday about needing to work. They have a couple of potential jobs for me but, I'm starting to lose my patience with this whole job search. I have bachelors degree in business and I've taken job specific training over the past couple of years and a college course specific to my job this past semester. I'm trying to stay positive and have faith that I will land a job soon and everything will fall into place but today I had a meltdown and could use some words of wisdom from those who have conquered this mission!! Thank you!!
I just came from a job interview for a full time receptionist job, M-F 8 am - 5 pm. The salary is $10,000-$12,000 a year! That is $4.80-$5.76 an hour! That isn't even minimum wage! I live in SC. Is this even legal? I started out making $10,185 a year at an entry level job back in 1985! Comments on this, please!
Fast food jobs are okay, but I am too old to be working for $7-8 an hour flipping burgers. Those companies are to quick to hire. I apply for a Court House job position, was told they have hired someone for that position already. 3 weeks later come to fine out they hired someone who does not have the qualification for the job. I maybe wrong but you don't always get what you in life. :)
