Definitely feeling lower about myself during the job search. I know I have great qualifications, but the lack of wins and the overwhelming nature of online job searching is hurting my confidence.

I applied for a job with UnitedHealth about a month ago, and I’ve only made it to phone interviews. I know they like me, because they said they’d call again to schedule an interview. Is it just me, or is this taking a REAAAALLY long time?

This is really directed towards Human Resources personnel or the actual people interviewing for a department/position. After an interview that seemingly went well (maybe an hour long interview) what is the protocol for following up? Do applicants send an email, call the interviewer or what is suggested? As an applicant, it would be nice to receive something saying the position has been filled, or if you are atill interviewing applicants. A call is not necessary, but a standard letter from HR would suffice. It's discouraging to continue to see the job posted and no response. #humanresources #interview #followup #application #hiringprocess

I usually send a Thank You email after all my interviews, within 24 hrs after. then if I haven't heard back within 2 weeks I send another email to inquire about the status of my application. If nothing, I just move on. Some places reach out with rejections others don't.

I think it depends on the size and capacity of the companies you apply to. Some companies even outsource their hiring process to outside agencies. Here are some tips on how to follow up with employers after an interview. I hope it helps. Let us know how your job search is going so far and how we can support you!

#sodexo # followup #hiringprocess #interviewadvice

So I am an ex employee first time member with the giant company Sodexo. I am trying to figure out the hiring process since i am fairly still new with the company from the previous job I worked for with them...

They said on August 3rd that this job at the City of Hope in Duarte, CA I applied for and had an interview with the H.R. manager and food service manager. They said they would give me a chance to be hired as long as I passed a backround check. Now this is my first rodeo with an official backround check, this company ACHECK does the investigation. So when I received feedback on the copy before it was submitted to SODEXO, I noticed I had an unwanted unknown warrent I didn't know I had.

So i went to court to handle that issue and cleared it, emailed and informed sodexo's corporate security and corrected the issue also by calling ACHECK.

I feel like this process is the longest i ever experienced. I am on the edge of my seat politely and anxiously sending out curtious concerning emails every 4-5 days showing high interest and still wondering WHAT THE HECK IS TAKING SO DAMN LONG?!?!?!

Anyways lol sorry for the long rant. Just in my head a lil too deep and could use some positive feedback, advice or opinions. Just wondering if anybody else gone through this issue and seeing if this IS normally how the process goes and what not...does it seriously take a month or more?

Ugh so frustrated and anxious lol how can someone tell you you're suitable for a job opportunity then not be up to date with keeping you informed at all? I feel like I'm bugging...but i need this job?! Omg lol so confused. Sigh

Hello, My Name is Gregory Smith and I have been through all the corporate application process for the Home Depot/Kitchen Design Specialist applications. Was wanting to know how to get to the next step in the interview/hiring process. I have over 25 years experience in the home improvement field from basic carpentry to electrical and plumbing and all others aspects and I also have been a custom cabinet fabricator as well as a certified Corian countertop fabricator. Also I have over 10 years experience in kitchen design and certified in the computer design programs. Any help in getting to the next level of interview would be appreciated

I don't why the company that I used to work for has been telling me that they found someone that is more qualified than I am. I am being frustrated because I am very qualified and has been in the field since 2003 and certified. I have no experience after school and health first hired me and had given me all what I knew now.

There’s a food manufacturer called Ideal Snacks hiring in a neighboring town from where I live. It looks like a good full time job to have over the summer so I can save some money for college next year, besides the starting pay is higher than any other job I’ve seen online with McDonald’s or Walmart. I want to apply but I don’t have any work experience at all. I’m not even sure if they would hire me at 17. How can I convince them to give me a job without any work skills or work history?

My Question is..Why won't you hire someone at your company that has 13+ years of working experience in Retail? And 3 years of Consumable work.

Can an employer hire you and give you a start date then email you and tell you that this date will not be your start date and he will notify you, but you don't hear from him?
