I'm 18 years old, fresh graduate. I'm searching for a job that way I can help my parents financially. Is there anyone or company that could hire me though I'm a fresh high school graduate?
I'm starting to feel as if going back to school was completely in vain because now that I have a degree and my second one on the way I still can't find a good job.....before I moved to Atlanta I was living in VA. I was able to find a decent job making some money, we'll at least enough to support my family and now I can't find absolutely nothing. It's as if my education meant nothing but I'm constantly telling my children how important it is to get education to get a good job so that they can support their families or even be successful in business. Don't get me wrong it's plenty of jobs here in Atlanta but it's almost as if I have to know someone that knows someone to get a job.....I've been networking and applying everywhere but absolutely nothing still, no one is willing to give a recent graduate a chance because they want you to have experience but my experience is school. How will I gain experience if no one is willing to take a chance?
I graduated with my bachelors in Hospitality Management, I'm great with customer service, and excel with working in a group or reaching any goal. Unfortunately, I am unable to find something that makes me excited or something I feel I can grow into. I worked hard for my degree and I don't want to feel like i'm settling for the sake of work. I'm willing to learn new things and get out of my comfort zone as long as its going in a positive direction. Any help would be appreciated.
Tomorrow marks my 4th month job searching since graduating from college back in early May. So far, over 100 applications submitted, 20 or so information interview written request, 5 phone interviews, and 3 face to face interviews.. Resulting in a whopping 0 (Zero) job offers. What scares me the most is that I suspect companies are not hiring me because of my weight. I have been battling obesity for most of my life and I think this disease has finally caught up with me. I do well enough on the phone interviews to land a face to face interview but everything changes once I walk into the room. I’m finding out that there’s a hidden hiring bias within the finance community against people with weight problems. It’s perceived as a weakness. I’m feeling so depressed right now and frankly can’t find the will within myself to move on. Finances are running low and and becoming another major stressor. Family and friends tell me that I’m being too self conscious and it’s all in my head but it doesn’t feel that way. Just thought i would share my story and hope for some advice from someone who’s been able to overcome this very serious personal challenge. How can I overcome overweight bias in my job search?
I have been looking for a job for the past few months. I've been on two interviews but I never received a call. I'm 17 about to graduate high school in the next few months. I'm currently looking for a job in fast food. I would really like a job. I'm trying to save for college next fall. Does anyone have any ideas on what might help me?
I can not believe some of these people one day they may definitely need me so what if I'm dead. It used to be you got what you were worth so were is the payoff? I have finished school for nearly a year without hardly any replies no interviews
