False Interview Hope

After actively seeking job leads, I interviewed with a healthcare institution set up by a job agency. The interview was virtual, and it went great. I left knowing that I did a great interview. I was so excited I reached out to the recruiter and told them how I did. On a scale of 0-10, I told them I would rate the interview a 10. The recruiter shared my excitement as well. She said she would reach out to the person who interviewed me to follow up. Unfortunately, later that day, I received an email from my recruiter saying that I did not get a job offer. The person words were, "I needed someone with more experience using Epic."

For all my individuals who work in healthcare or do non-clinical work should know about Epic. When the interviewer asked me if I had experience using Live Epic, I told them, "yes" I have used Epic but not the live version. My previous company had employees access it through a link on the computer. It was already downloaded. When I told the interviewer that, they didn't seem concerned. So, I thought that it was okay that I was honest. Because I have experience with the platform. So why did they not want to hire me because I didn't use the live version? I have no clue. At any point, after I told the interviewer about my experience with Epic, they should have stated their concerns or asked for clarification of my using the software. Instead, they just assumed the access link didn't work the same way the Live version does. This was a huge letdown, and I'm very conflicted about whether I should have just said yes and not given the interviewer unnecessary details. Because it cost me the job. #interview #advice #followup #healthcare #hr #jobsearch #remote #jobagency #staffingagency #unemployed #nonclinical #denial #refusal #interviewmistakes

Is this normal?: interview follow-up

I had an interview on Monday that I thought went really well. The interviewer had to head into another meeting though before I could ask all of my questions but she said she would send me an email so I can ask the rest of my questions. On Tuesday i sent a thank you note through the recruiter and since then I havent heard back from either. Am I just being paranoid? #interview #followup #advice

Chii 88: In my experience, and I ve changed various jobs to improve on my salary, more often than not, I m hired on the spot. And usually, they take more time to talk to me. Even getting more on a personal level. Like this boss who asked me about connections for her son. I thought that was odd, but she had hired me on the spot. Move on. Your answer to something triggered her rejection. But, she could not be so upfront!

Are there any jobs available for felons?

I got out of jail, ready to start my life over. Start fresh. You know, do it right this time? My brother and sister in law took me in and not only housed me but my sister in law hired me as her office assistant and gave me a chance to prove myself which in all the hardwork I put in at that job and the dedication to my job I did a lot of training and gained a lot of skills unfortunately due to my health I was let go March 2021. It had been 7 months and every job I've applied to has rejected me due to my felony drug charge from 3 years ago my 2 misdemeanors from 3 years ago my theft III and my identity theft which was a misunderstanding. I have applied for over 100 jobs and have been rejected every time. Please help me by letting me know of any jobs in the Willamette Valley of Oregon or the Vancouver Seattle area of Washington that hire felons. Thank you #advice #jobsearch #interview #followup #application #backgroundcheck #termination #unemployment

Hello! First try to understand from some of the perspectives of ones who have not accepted to employ you. I would try to volunteer for at least a year. From there the trust factor with the employer could be established. I believe that this person may also have a net work of business connection. Trust is the operative word. Build it. Good Luck

honey, why did your sister do all that for you and then let you go for an illness. are you sure that was the reason or just what you want people to believe. any case, you will have a hard time getting a job with your criminal history. do you still live with them are they still helping you. never ever burn your bridges and i hope you have not. i know from reading the specialist that post jobs there are places who give second chances. the only worry i would have is that your criminal past is in the last 3 years and not many years ago. the perspective employers may think its to soon to much of a risk and what if your reoffend using there technology and cause them to have to fight a law suite because of something you did. i am not knocking you down or saying this will happen but put yourself on both sides of the chopping block. good luck, take care and maybe see a therapist to help you.

I agree with the previous answer. I’ll also add make sure you engage in conversation with more than a one word answer, relate the question to something personal and ASK QUESTIONS!! Read about Starbucks mission statement and core values and their history and come up with, ahead of time, at least two questions. It’ll show your genuine interest in the company. GOOD LUCK!!!

I'm soon to retire from the military after 20 years, I've been looking and filling application after applications, cover letters the whole nine.... haven't received ANY offers, I'm leaving California and retiring in Florida, is it really that difficult to find a good paying job with the amount of experience in aircraft mechanics that I have? I'm also a master training specialist and the only thing I've realized is that through LinkedIn, indeed, and the other 15 websites I've attached to that i have more spam and generally irritating emails about all these jobs that I'm not getting calls from that area available. Any suggestions? Thanks #advice #jobsearch #wordsofadvice #application #management #followup

I fill out an application attach a resume and wait. I finally get a call for an interview, So please tell me why are they asking if I have experience if it's listed on my resume that I do. Did they read my resume, was my resume picked by a robot, It's just seems like a waste if time. #jobsearch #application #followup #advice #wordsofadvice #interview #hiringnews #fulltime #resume

Home Depot

My first time posting here. I'm just a little frustrated, but trying to be patient. Home Depot was looking to hire 80,000 people Nationwide & I made it through the assessment tests, the phone interview and then a face to face interview with the assistant manager. I am a perfect fit for the department they were hiring for. The asst. Manager hired me on the spot and said HR would get back to me. I sat there & did both the background check & drug test, neither of which I would have a problem with. I've called to follow up several times & The only response I get is if HR hasn't gotten back with you yet, they haven't received your results. It's been 16 days. I had stopped looking for a job because I believed this was my new home. I'm wanting to go see the head of HR to talk face to face & ask questions. Or do I continue filling out applications? Concerned individual with mad skills and Great work ethics!!

Usually you should receive an automated response to confirm that they receive your application. If not, there should be contact info for HR or hiring manager that you can follow up in a week or so as a general rule of thumb. Good luck!
