I have read many rejection letters over the years while looking for jobs, and I was thinking, wouldn't it be great to know the REAL reason that those resumes were not being considered for the position? Has anyone ever had the guts to reach out and ask why their resume wasn't considered? I think feedback is so important and I wish I had asked for more of it. I think maybe I was too scared of rejection at that time.
I recently had a phone interview with a large health insurance. I received an email that I was not being moved forward in the position. I replied back for specifics as to why so I can either correct the problem to improve my odds or make an decision to apply or not. I don't believe that is too much to ask. Their response was that they cannot provide specifics. I responded that I need specifics so I don't waste both our time applying.
I applied for a job that is in a way what I do now but with more hours and benefits. I hadn't heard from them in a month since I took the test they require and assumed somebody else got hired or they just weren't interested. I was wrong and got some feed back to go to the next process level. Wish me luck and cross your fingers for me please. This is a great career move job with excellent retirement.
i would like to get some feedback on my profile; job search is going very slow and want to see if it my be my profile/resume. thanks
I’ve been asked to provide feedback on an ongoing team project involving some very egocentric coworkers and I don’t know how to accomplish this without creating workplace enemies!
I suggest people really leave politics out of the workplace. But as we enter a crazy election year - I am wondering what stories, advice, or guidance you have about Politics and jobsearch, or politics and worklife in general......
Well I didn't find my dream job...lol but I did find a temporary job that can turn into a permanent job. I still have an opportunity at another job that I'm waiting here back from. Both jobs I found on this site. To all other job seekers, don't give up. There are opportunities out there. You just have to keep knocking on the doors. Make sure that you complete your profile as much as possible. I wish you all the best of luck!
Govt economists are talking about USA being back near 'full emoloyment'? Does this economy feel like full employment to you??
Hi Sajida: Jeff brings up some good points here. But I would also suggest getting in contact with UPS about your application - you don't have to wait to hear back from employers. Call the location you applied to and ask about your application. It could be the push they need to give you an interview!
You should always be, and stay consistent. Calling everyday increases your chance of receiving the position.
