Employers not following up

I have been out of work since June 1st. At this point, I'm applying for multiple jobs every day. Everyone is saying that employers are desperate to fill positions, but the experience I have is I submit applications with my resume on job boards and after 2 to 3 weeks the employers aren't even checking the resumes that are coming in. Then you get a random email saying the position has been closed. #employers #laidoff

Around the world, governments are beginning to explore ways to safely re-open the economy. As a result, people are preparing to head back to work.

As we start to take steps towards bringing normalcy back to our lives post-Coronavirus, what is concerning YOU as you either A) enter back into the workforce or B) resume your job search?

I have been out of work since April 28 2020. At this point, I'm applying for multiple jobs every day. Everyone is saying that employers are desperate to fill positions, but the experience I have is over qualified. I was Field engineer with PSS than Eckoh is UK company for 10 years than they laid me off and after 8 months they posted my position :( I reapplied and they told me I was not qualified . #employers #laidoff #advice

I was laid #laidoff since April 2020. Since then I got my unemployment with an extensions like Pendamic Emergency Unemployment Compensation. Starting from the last three weeks I didn't get any payment. Since I'm under clinical care since January 2021 and due to that I stated to response "NO" for looking to job or Arey available for work. Hope they will come to see the reason and continued paying me soon. Thanks,

Florida job availability...joke

According to Governor DeSantis, "Florida has over 460,000 online jobs available with the strongest economic conditions in the nation". Where are these jobs Mr. DeSantis? This information was taken from Florida's Department of Unemployment Economics; Florida has gained more than 800,000 private-sector jobs since the beginning of Covid-19. As a person who's position was eliminated due to Covid and have been looking for employment since day 1 but I'm just not seeing these jobs! It's been over a year of applying and networking but I have yet had a single call back or an interview? If I find positions to apply for that's great but most of the online job postings are not relevant to my experience or direct me to a third party site requiring me to sign up just to be able to submit my application/resume rather than allowing me to apply directly with the company. I bring over 20 years of Account Management, Direct to Consumer Sales and Customer Service and Retention experience, I really hope I can find something soon. #joblessinflorida #jobseeking #laidoff #pleasehireme

Waiting and loosing opportunities

I just recently acquired a job (so i thought) with a timeshare company named "" Bluegreen. I had worked for them in the past and was very happy to be a part of their program again. However after i filled out the application for employment and was told i had the job i had to wait for a pee test email to come so i could get tested pass then start. That email never came. I called everyday for a little less than a week and was told "it should be there tomorrow." this was said every time i called. Then the last time i called i was told the new hires and the rehires were on hold for a couple of days. Again this was after a little less than a week of being told i had the job and waiting on the pee test email. Make sense so far? I finally get a text from the gentelman that hired me saying the program i was hired for was shut down. So no job. what i find upsetting is i stopped looking and appling for jobs during the time i was made to belive i had this position. what im trying to understand is there something wrong with the misrepresentation of having the job? Also, loosing all that time trying to find a job is a huge set back. Can anything be done as in a complaint, a rebuttal or something. does anyone have an answer?

Laid off two months ago

I was laid off two months ago. I'm a single father and bought a house last year. I'm stressed and worried now. I've been on a few interviews but haven't heard anything back recently. I haven't received a response back even after calling and emailing the hiring managers.
