Please how can I possibly get a usa remote job from Africa? Please someone should help me, I'm a university graduate with a second class upper grade in Statistics. I've been for a year and a half with no job to do 🤦. I can do any statistical analysis job.
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!!
A few weeks ago, probably around a month or so ago, I was hired. However, I have not heard about when I am scheduled to come in or when I should start working. I think I was hired in September. I completed my background check and paperwork. I even went through training and got the uniforms for work a few weeks ago.
I've been trying to contact HR but I haven't had much luck. Should I drop by and ask? I'm afraid that I might come off as too clingy and then they won't want me to work there. I am also afraid that I ended up being a no show because they scheduled me for work but I didn't receive the schedule. This is a place I wanted to work at since I was a child. Should I just continue to wait? #hired #joboffer #startdate
UPDATE: I got a schedule! Thanks for all the advice everyone. I really appreciate it.
***UPDATE-SEE UPDATE BELOW ***
After a month of applications the last 2 weeks have been wonderful. I’ve had several interviews, 3 more scheduled and so far 1 job offer. I have feeling I may be offered 1 or 2 more.
I’ve had to be submitted to jobs paying $12,000-$16,000/yr less than what I’ve made in the past. That’s $6-$8/hr less! I guess that’s to be expected after being unemployed for over a year.
What are your thoughts on taking a pay cut to get in the door?
Regardless, I’m feeling blessed.
UPDATEUPDATEUPDATE All interviews went great. I’ve received multiple job offers. 3 offers and expecting 1 more. Could this be leveraged to negotiate my salary? Would you mention the other offers to the each employer?
So, I was requested to interview for a customer service vacancy, which will allow me to work remotely. I would love to be able to work primarily from home, so of course I I was thinking, "this is the opportunity that I've been hoping will come my way". The interview wasn't face to face nor over the phone. Rather, the interviewer conducted it all through Google Hang Outs. I found it a bit strange. Nevertheless she hired me and required all my personal info through Hangouts also and that her secretary would be needing it to create my file. I requested that she give me her secretary's name and phone number and that I would connect with her with my info. She said no. She didn't offer another option to me and our communication ceased. Did I just blow a fantastic opportunity with benefits over fear? Or, was it wise to suspect the possibility of foul play. In the last year, I've been robbed 2x, hacked another, lost 2 cars, Just financed one by the skin of my teeth and now it needs a new transmission. In addition I dont do social media well. I'm completely dumb when it comes to communication through social media. I feel embarrassed about it, but it is the truth. I dont want to live constantly feeling as though any opportunity is a scam. I was once an upbeat and optimistic. Now... paranoid pessimist and I hate it. Can anyone relate or validate, or help?
Why can’t I find a job? What’s happening? I’ve had at least 4 interviews with one company and 3 with another, but no job offer. Why? I was so close the manager went of the job schedule, I was sure this was it? Then, nothing ... just nothing! I can’t take it anymore!
I recently started a new job in my field which is cooking. Well a few week's ago a friend asked if I'd come in and help her out on my day's off because they needed another cook. I worked 1 day and management approaches me & offers me $4.00 more an hour to quit my job. I though about it & had decided that I was going to take it,I mean who could pass up an extra 4.00 an hour? So I gave my notice and explained why I was leaving hoping that they'd offer me more money. Well they didn't,so I gave my 2 week's notice. Now with 3 days left of my 2 week's my boss approached me and offered me $3.00 more an hour. So I've decided that I'm going to stay with them,I really like it where I am even though the new place was more money and 5 minutes from my home. Do you think I made the right choice & how do I tell the other place that I now can't take their offer?!? #adviceplease #foodservice #cook/eggflipper
I dont get it. I got rejected again. They loved my passion but no offer. What am I doing wrong? I am acclaimed in my field. Just turned 50. 2 degrees. Working on my Masters. All my roles were progressively upward. Am I being blackballed? I remain prayerful.
Got offered a position! They just sent me a bunch of forms. One of which is a questionnaire about my medical history. I was just hospitalized for cardiac issues but am on the mends now. I also have to say yes to diabetes. Will this cause me this offer? Please help. I am freaking out!
