I'm having such a hard time looking for work. Sometimes I really sit back and wonder if I'm doing something wrong with my job search. Was it the way I formatted my job resume or my work history? Are these jobs really hiring? Why so many job postings with super long wait time for a response back? I feel like throwing my degree in the trash sometimes. What's the point? And now funds are getting tight for me and I had to actually pawn a few of my valuables just so i can pay off some late bills. Our economy and job searching sucks. :( #jobsearch #advice #application
UPDATE: I guess it's just the timing of how long companies will reply back but I GOT HIRED! Found great permanent opprtunity near where I live that matches my experience. Thanks to everyone who tried helping me but I'm officially done with job searching. #hired
I was offered a job at a company and had been working there for about a month. Being only a month in, I was still in my training period. Then I received a voicemail from the same person who initially offered me a job with another job offer for the same position. Then the following week, I was let go (I wasn't given any specifics other than under performance which was never brought to my attention once by any of the floor managers). So it seems like the hiring manager didn't realize I had already been working at the company and, if I took the new job offer, I would essentially be replacing myself. So the question is, should I take up the new job offer as if I were a completely new candidate? If so, how should I go about doing so? #jobsearch #advice #termination #management #hired #followup #confusion #joboffer
So, i am a little confused myself, you were doing the job that they hired you for. Then they offered you the job that you already were doing. Then they let you go, and you are asking should you take the job that they are offering you for the same position? I do not know the details of what transpired, have you asked them about the new offer? Do you know that this is job is still on the table for you now? I would contact HR and see what they have to say, no harm no fowl and it will answer your question. Goodluck!!!
Once you've landed a job, the hard work isn't over. Adjusting to a new workplace can feel overwhelming, between meeting colleagues, learning about the company and getting into a routine in your role. But being a new hire doesn't have to be so stressful, writes Fast Company. To help set yourself up for success in the first month of a new position, here are four strategies:
• Learn your manager's expectations and establish how success will be measured.
• Establish good habits early, such as forming an organization system.
• Build relationships with your co-workers and create a positive reputation.
• Learn as much as you can about the company to ease your transition.
I am truly happy to have came across this website. For the past year and a half. I've been working contract work which was great but, never led to anything permanent. I was sold on how great these positions are to being let go. Keep a positive mindset. I know it can be hard especially in these times the pandemic has changed the job market. Work on your resume but, most importantly work on your interview skills. Be yourself and let your true personality and skills shine. There's that position right around the corner perfect for you. This website helped me get hired with Anthem a company I've been dreaming to get in! #Hired #KeepTheFaith #Anthem
