This week Job Hunting

Post by Hunterforjobs on Fri Feb 18, 2011 6:35 pm

First topic message reminder :

Seemed to be a popular thread in the last UFF so I think we should continue it here.

Applied for three jobs this week including old company see vent, and have not heard from anyone of them.

Hunter, keep the faith. I am happy you are at least getting interviews. Some of us haven't had three call backs to get to the interview stage.

We'll keep our fingers crossed and say a prayer. Please post and let us know how you make out. We're cheeing for you!!!

Well, it went. It was a long relaxing interview the typical ending, "I have fifiteen other applicants I'll need to interview, I'll keep in touch." Speech.

Job search continues.

Personally my head isnt even into the job hunt anymore. I cant remember what it was like to wake up and rush out to catch the subway to get to work. I'm back in school and it distracts me from the fact that I think my last interview was in January. I sent a bunch of resumes out last week and have more to go this week but have little hope that they will garner any response. I barely get rejection emails anymore!

The job interview left me indifferent. Had the interview. I am then told she is looking for one full time and two part time people. The store wont be opne for 6-8 weeks and she' going to reconnect with no shows.

I told her I was interested in the job and was willing to wait--I'm not going to --and left it at that.

So I don't know if she was impressed with me or not. They don't have their permits yet.

We'll see. Sigh the job search contintues.

Just heard from this job today. Didn't get it. She chose somone else and would like to keep my resume for further consideration. I know thats a polite way of circular file. I really didn't expect to get it because of the way the interview was handled so I wasn't too disappointed.

Well thats the update on the first interview in March.

Sorry you didn't get it Hunter. Sad

My phone rang today--it was a recruiter saying "why didn't you show up for your interview today??!!!" I said "What interview?!" He said "Oh, I'm sorry, I dialed the wrong number." Click.

MAD

Gaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!

Seriously this is so awful and downright cruel. I don't know how I would have reacted b/c my emotions are all exposed these days and I couldnt handle that roller coaster of emotions.

I think it truly it was a mistake...it was an out-of-state recruiter and he did sound, um, confused...I'll just leave it at that. But still maddening.

Set out 9 resumes this past week and three this week no takers. Going through a dry spell.

It has been a dry spell for me since December. I had more interviews that month than the whole 3 years I have been unemployed. I thought for sure things would pick up at the beginning of the year.....WRONG! One phone interview last week and that is it.

I apply for everything I see, even if I am only remotely qualified and NOTHING. Lately, all the top career sites have been mostly work at home scams. The telemarketing industry must be picking up, those are the only phone calls I've been getting in response to my applications.

I've even had an HR person call me twice for the same job. She called me to ask about my resume when I had already interviewed for the job and was turned down. I told her I had already interviewed for the position.

Good news for me! I have an interview for a 12-24 month job, good pay, close to home (like bicycle close but too hilly for my out of shape, fat, old body). But I have to spend between now and Thursday learning how to do something I don't know how to do so that I can truthfully say I know how to do it.

So get off of here and go study, Joan! OK!

Oh jeeze I hope you're right--had a major setback today downloading the wrong software and working with that for hours only to find that it wasn't the right thing, So then I found the right one, but can't get it to work the way it's supposed to. Keep getting error messages that don't help tell me what's wrong.

Just trying to show them that I can do what the job posting says they want. I know I'm kvetching, but at least this feels like I can do something for a change, you know? So often, I feel like going in with spit and a prayer--at least this time I feel like I can study and show them what I learned. They didn't say to do this, but it seemed like a good idea to try to show them. Well, it did seem. Not so sure now. scratch

I'm a coward, I froze when i called about a job and hung up when the person said hello. I have no idea why. Maybe I'm used to emailing resumes and if lucky enough to get called in for an interview. I'm going to try again but I just can't believe it.

Had an interview with an off-price retailer for a supervisor position last week, no love yet.

Really infuriated by application for similar position at JCPenney, failed the moronic personality test! What, I can't do the job I've been doing for twenty years? If not, retailers, I should just die instead? I won;t give you that satisfaction!

I know how you feel. At my last interview, I could feel my beaten down, desperate attitude coming through and tried my best to smile and give all the right answers. Even as I sat in the interview I felt so hopeless and wondered why I was even going through the motions - I knew I wasn't going to get it. It is really hard to stay positive and focused when you know that over 100 other applicants have applied for the same low-paying position.
