I think you've got a great plan in in order to attend your job interview with one exception. Under the current circumstances, a handshake is not necessary nor should it be expected of you. We haven't even seen the nature of this beast known as the coronavirus yet unfortunately. It takes about a week for symptoms to show once an individual has been exposed. Good luck in the interview. I pray you are able to stay safe. P.S. Don't forget to drop a quick thank you note in the mail addressed to the interviewer thanking them for their time.

Day 10. Follow up on application.

OK, I have an issue following up on applications. I am a phlebotomist with 26 years experience. I've been sending out resume upon resume and can't even get a decent response from anyone. I realize recruiters are busy but come on. I apply at a lot of hospitals and labs but cannot seem to find a real person to talk to. Some places are national and I've tried calling. Its usually someone manning the phones at HR. I have had some great interviews and actually thought I would get the job but weeks later nothing. It is getting quite depressing to even send out resumes. We are supposed to be professional but they don't care one way or another. How can I follow up if nobody will call back? I am 54 years old. Do you think my age is a problem?

I think I know you...

What do you do in those weird situations where you are pretty sure you know someone, but it was from a VERY long time ago? I had an interview the other day and when the manager introduced himself I knew the name sounded familiar. I figured out we were actually in the same elementary school together… I THINK he recognized me too but I’m not sure! Should I try to bring it up in the thank you note??

Nothing but rejection for me today. Maybe due to the corona virus?

Manager

As a manager I defend the CVC manager that was "rude" when phoned in regards to an application that had been turned in. I understand that these are tough times for many due to the economic state that we are in BUT you should NEVER phone in regards to a job. You have no way of knowing if said manager is busy with customers or some type of crisis that is going on. It may be far fetched but a medical emergency could be underway or some other type of emergency could be transpiring. When I accept applications or conduct interviews I make it very well understood to NOT phone me or the store and if we are interested we will phone them with a job offer or to set up an interview. Obviously the person that sent the email to complain about the "rudeness" of the manager has access to the internet, so it would have been much more professional to have sent an email to inquire about the status of her application. Like it or love it but this is 2016 and the internet is the best way to communicate in a situation such as this. I personally as a manager would not have taken the call in the first place.

With all due respect I understand but some of us who been out of work for a while and we become anxious so we call. The situation still could have been handled differently because it is a place of business so good customer service goes a long way even if your day is hectic that's one of the questions that is asked on an interview survey how to handle certain situations and that manager did not respond appropriately.

Hi. My POB is very busy, and shirt staff. As a manager in my organization, and a representative of my establishment, it is important to me that I remain a "brand ambassador". What I mean is, my actions at work, for all situations, must reflect good nature, and good decision making on my "company's", behalf. I know its difficult having customers, and associates to manage, then someone calls, so desperate for employment that they may have an attitude; however, I just tell them thank you for applying, if you are someone we may be interested in, we will pull your application, (If positions are still available). This takes about five seconds. I know its a drag, but be nice. The holiday season is almost over! Lol

JOANNE SMITH It takes WEEKS to hear back from companies. We live in a society where most of us get what we want almost instantly. BE PATIENT. Here's what you do: 1 apply for 3 jobs every day. Match your resume & cover to the requirements listed in the job description & match them verbatim. This takes time. This is why I recommend 3 jobs a day. 2 Proofread CAREFULLY your resume & cover & then send. 3 Next day, apply for 3 more jobs. Do this daily. NEVER pin your hopes on just 1, 2 or 3 jobs. Just keep applying - DAILY. It is like when you go fishing. You have a greater chance of catching more fish the more fishing poles you have in the water. If you have a problem with self-esteem, or even if you don't, go online & see how appropriate resumes & covers are written. Get a friend to look your documents over. Get advice from & network with friends, family, fellow church goers. Remember, we are used to overnight results & you have to have patience. Just keep sending in your very best resume & cover daily & know you are doing your best & know it takes time. Do this & you will start getting responses.

Companies hiring FAST!

Many companies hiring immediately, some of these companies have revised their hiring processes to allow new hires start work in as little as 24 hours.
