Does anyone here have any experience with trying to find employment with a SD? I know what the laws say, but that doesn’t stop a potential employer from simply not picking you and not disclosing why.
Little back ground. I am a disabled veteran with 12 years experience in what best translates to logistics (but on the explosive side). I can walk but bending, twisting and standing too long tends to cause a ton of pain. Unfortunately that knocks out a lot of the logistical positions I have the most experience in. I would love getting into a stock control, shipping, dispatching or something along those lines position that would put me behind a desk more often than not. Issue is, I can’t even get anyone to look at me. I’m assuming my resume that I’ve redone multiple times now, does not properly reflect my experience. Either that, or when I am asked about being a “protected person” (due to my disabled veteran status) they are simply tossing my application to the digital trash. Maybe they assume I have PTSD? I don’t know, we were warned that this is stereotype veterans face when looking for work. Maybe I shouldn’t declare myself as a “protected person”? Anyways, I either hear nothing back or I get a denial email within 24 hours of submitting a application. So, the first step is getting into the door which I am not. The next step after that, how do I approach the topic of a dog? Should I bring her with me to the interview? I don’t want to not be forthcoming about my disability but at the same time, I need to work for something more than Doordash (nothing against doordash, I appreciate the opportunity to get some sort of cash flow but I have bills and this can’t be the only thing I have going).
Beth Clymer shared this article with me today and it gave me hope. So I thought it might give hope to others as well. I’ve seen many Jobcasers with records struggle to navigate finding a job. But there are companies out there with services and support to help! Please don’t give up!
Ive done warehouse work for 15yrs. I Really want to get into doing security. Always have hope and faith.
Everytime I get on here it tells me to write a post, I have never had anything that I thought that anyone else would find worthwhile, however I find this worthwhile so maybe someone else will. I keep hearing that it is a workers market today because the job market is almost at full employment, I do not find that to be the case, now it has been 31 years since I was in the market, but I have never been out of work for more than 2 weeks in my entire life, I have worked since I was 11 years old, and the 2 weeks I was out of the job market was my own choice.
Now I am a 54 year old male, have Accounting, Shipping, Warehouse, Retail warehouse, forklift trained (although it has been a while), have had purchasing, cost estimating and 3,1 years of experience. I have been out of work since November 1st, have applied to probably in the area of 150 jobs have had 3 live and 5 phone interviews, and only have one job pending, the rest have either not contacted me or have turned me down without explanation, however the last job that turned me down did say it was not me, it was the person they hired had more experience than I did in the particular program they needed experience in. I don't know if it is agism, not the right training, too experience in too many positions or what the particular reason is, all i know is I am getting frustrated and need to find a job soon, I plan on finishing my career wherever I end up, When I start somewhere I stay, and this will probably be my last stop before I retire, I plan on at least 16 years, health permitting. I am continuing educating myself on LinkedIn Learning and also have 3 CPE's from QuickBooks and am working towards getting certified to do QuickBooks online so maybe I can use that avenue.
Now I don't know if this is the correct post they want me to put on here but here it is, I am looking for any kind of Accounting, Purchasing, or Warehouse job, preferably Accounting, I have my salary set at $17 but will talk to anyone with a job that is a little less, if any of my contacts has a position available or know someone that they can get me in contact with it would be greatly appreciated. Being unemployed is no fun and can bankrupt if it goes on long enough, and I am to that point now, I know you shouldn't show desperation but I am desperate. Thank you for taking the time to read this and like I said ANY help would be greatly appreciated.
I have experience in warehouse, merchandiser and customer service. Im bilingual (spanish and english).
