Feeling a little exposed...

I haven't given notice to my current employer yet because after signing the offer I was told that I would have to complete a background check and drug test. I am not worried about the drug test but after the background check I'm worried they might hold my recent bankruptcy against me. It should be pretty obvious why I had to file. I spent 3.5 years working at less than half my usual salary and was just in too deep. I won't have access to any money though I know for travel, most companies like for you to use your personal credit cards and then be reimbursed and obviously I don't have any now. I don't know, maybe I'm over thinking but after years of let downs I'm too paranoid to give my notice until I know for certain I have the 'all clear' from them on the background check. My target start date is the 18th and they were pushing things so I could give notice next week so I'm hoping to hear something today. Meanwhile, I know my supervisor and manager suspect that I'm about to quit. My manager is giving me the silent treatment and will only speak to me through the supervisor - and we are all in one open room, so I get spoken about like I'm not in the room. I just do not want to give my notice and then have to eat my words...

Hopefully today I will know. Sorry for rambling.

It's been a long time since I had the interview and I know many things have changed I believe you are contacted now by letter in the mail but please don't hold me to that I haven't had an interview and I know companies have changed their policies I know you have to apply online good luck to you it's a good company

Good question @praty m ! Employers list job openings as (open and closed) to indicate when they start and stop accepting applications. A 'closed' status typically means that the employer is no longer accepting application for that job(s) and the application review and candidate selection process is about to begin.

Now would be a good time to follow up with that employer and re-emphasize you capacity and interest in the job opportunity. You can find follow-up tips and other helpful job search success information on out Getting Hired Resource Center. Take a look at the advice that's available and reach back out to us if you have any other questions. Best of Luck with this and all you other job prospects!!

Not Sure

I have a job offer .That seems to pay ok. But is not enough to pay my bills. The job does not pay Health insurance either.I have been laid off a few weeks. Not many choices out there. I am a skilled tradesman .

Signing a letter of acceptance for a job?

I was finally offered a job and the h.r. person faxed me a letter of acceptance to sign. I signed it and was sent a copy of their 50 page handbook and rules, along with a consent form for a background check and drug test. After I signed the letter, took the drug test, and consented to a background check; which all came back good, I was emailed and told to start July 5th.

I am thrilled, because I have been out of work forever, as it seems; and was beginning to lose hope! That was yesterday, but then this morning, another company called me and scheduled me for an interview that will be at 4pm today; eastern standard time. This job pays almost 2 bucks more, and I think I will like it better, but I have only interviewed over the phone with them, and that was Monday, and pretty much the same day, they emailed me back to come in for a second interview, which will be in person!

I have applied to them several times over the course of 2 years and to finally get a callback, I am ecstatic!

I am taking it that 2 interviews means a good sign, and if I am offered a job, how should I let the original company know my decision, but in a tactful way? I don't want to burn bridges, because I actually applied last to this job a few months ago;, but at the time, only second shift was open & I need 3rd. The h.r. person kept my record on file and sure enough, when night shift opened, I was one of the first people called.

I was done a big favor, because normally after 3 months, I would have had to reapply and go through the whole process again, I was able to skip that all that, and go straight for an interview with the hiring managers and take a tour.

I feel like a favor was done for me and I don't want to seem ungrateful to the h.r person or the company, but at the end of the day, I stand to make a lot more money at the other company and enough where I can get some things done that I have not been able to for me and my kids.

I am divorced with 5 kids to raise on my own and although I think both jobs will be good for me, I want to take the one that pays more.

what am I doing wrong

I have done the application I even had an interview and was hired I was so excited. I was waiting on the email to fill out my tax info.... It never came. I found out that I had made a mistake on my email address so I went and fixed it....at least I think I fixed it. I don't know what to do now.

Job Fair?

Help!! I’ve never been to a job fair and to be honest I don’t really even know what happens there. I remember my mom telling me that she went to a couple of career fairs when she was looking for a job but she claims those events weren’t very helpful and she never got a job offer out of any of them. Theres going to be one in my town next week so I still want to give it a try and maybe have my own positive experience. Should I dress up and be prepared to interview with various companies on the same day or are job fairs more of a Q&A opportunity. What should I expect?

Quitting during an awkward time

Right now I'm an admin assistant at a part time office job that I've been trying to leave for the past several months. On Friday one of the salesmen retired, on Tuesday I interviewed for a job that I think went well, and when I come in on Wednesday I find out the head of our website department put in his two weeks and they're offering me full-time so i can take on some of his tasks. I'm supposed to hear back from my interview tomorrow one way or the other, but now I have no idea how to make a smooth exit. I've only even quit one job before but not in a situation like this--the company is 14 people and if I quit they'll be loosing 3 in a very short span of time.
