I filled out an application before the holidays they responded back saying to set up an appointment through there system. OK SO FAR!! But then system did not work so I emailed her as she stated in her email. She confirmed an appointment for today to call. GUESS WHAT NO CALL!! First i requested Monday and she responded back with Tuesday no problem. I assumed it was after the holiday and people took the second off. I waited at home for the call for an hour after our appointment time. I emailed her no response. This is getting a bit much for my self ego. It is getting beat the hell up from feeling like I am to damn old to no response at all. WTH!!!
Hello, It's CHRISTMAS EVE****JESUS came to save us. For GOD so loved the world, that HE gave HIS only begotten SON, that whosoever believeth in HIM should not perish, but have everlasting life. Listen , we all have some type of PROBLEM in our lives. Please don't forget to share love during this season. There are someone problem that is worse than ours. It is good to help someone when you are broken. May the Lord bless you greatly.
Are companies really hiring this time of year or just recruiting candidates for next year. Other than seasonal jobs I’m not experiencing much of a turn-around.
My journey to gainful employment is not unlike all of yours. It has been a rollercoaster ride and I dislike the rollercoaster. I am learning to ride it out though. I am tired and I feel very defeated taken into the fact that two employments this year alone I failed at or they failed me. With both I was to learn and I did with both I was told that I could move forward but when you have not done any kind of the type of work I am trying to get into well let's say there will be mistakes however in today's world not everyone is forgiven for those mistakes and thusly you lose your job like me both within 25 days of being hired. Sad it is and heartbreaking you bet it is especially this time of year. This has been a year of great losses, those losses I don't think I may ever get over but losses that now have made me lose confidence in myself and my skills. Two blows within two months of each other is not an easy thing to get over. The biggest loss that I am really facing is the loss of support from friends and family. I have had friends tell me to get over it and keep looking something will come and others that have said oh you are not cut out for this kind of work go back to what you know. All my life I have settled and that is my greatest fear is that I will have to settle for something that will be less than what I know I can do. I just earned my degree to which I worked extremely hard for. I am older and wiser but when it comes to this I feel defeated. You do find out who your true friends are though when you go through something like this you find out that you are a loser and no one wants to be around you and yet you try to be upbeat but they tell you well you can't go to places they go because you can't afford it. This one is a good one I mentioned a eating establishment that is expensive and had a friend of mine tell me they have been there before but that is a place you will never get to go to because you can't afford it. That came from my Best friend. NICE. I have had so much loss this year it has been overwhelming. I view myself as a failure not only to myself but I have failed my family I won't be able to buy gifts this year for my family and that hurts me the most I am a giver not a receiver I love to give and love to shop for people who are special to me it brings me joy I won't have that this year no joy, no seeing the excitement of them loving what I got them it brings me joy not this year and maybe never again if I don't get a job soon. My journey is like yours some not so dramatic, some even worst but nonetheless not unlike most of your stories so I can relate and I thank God there is this community for me to vent or feel bad for myself or to give advice to help someone. I wish all a Merry Christmas and my hope is all will receive employment that they will have for a very long time I wish for less loss for all of you. I just hope this journey of despair will end soon for me and for all of you too. God Bless
GET HIRED DURING THE HOLIDAYS
Every so often I hear something like “Businesses stop hiring for the Holidays and wait until the beginning of the year to start looking again.” This is misleading and could be catastrophic for many who take that advice and stop fighting for that needed job. Surveys of folks around the world suggest that the Holiday Season is just as productive jobwise as any other -and more so for those who keep the faith and keep looking. In general, people have higher spirits, share more, give more, celebrate more, and their compassion rises during these jolly times. Keep that in mind during an interview. When a company has an “open to buy” for certain positions, they don’t say “sorry, not until after the Holidays.” It can happen, certainly, but in most cases, the Holidays are “business as usual” for the HR folks. They are tasked with finding the right fit for those requisitions. Companies sometimes hire crews early knowing that after the Holidays they have to start executing next year's business plan and it takes 11 months to get to the next successful Christmas. The Holidays have a lot of meaning, brotherhood, happiness, spirituality, goodness, and charity among others. You and I feel the difference in the air and the scenes, the windy cheer and the songs of the season itself lift us above the urgent matters of our lives... if we let them. Let yourself go, make it a Merry Christmas even if your teeth and fists are clenched under the pressure of a jobless couple of months and remember that it’s only a temporary ditch on the road to your personal resurrection. Light up your smile, pound the job strategy harder, make new friends, and make those hiring managers feel they have someone special in YOU! That interview, filled with smiles and great expectations, is your ticket to strike their hearts with the joys of the best time of the year. With a great attitude, a smart, well-rehearsed conversation and your willingness to be a part of their work life and future, they can’t resist. Lift your spirits, visualize yourself at the job, successful and happy. It can happen even during Christmas
