I applied for a position and was called by the recruiter of the company. I thought we really hit it off and she told me that out of 150 applicants I had been rated by the hiring team as having the best resume and most industry experience. I had mentioned that I had bern considering chsnging to a different industry. She then said, "no, we're not going to let you do that", She then scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager for top 5 applicants and she would choose for 3 to come in and interview with 4 different people. I had the phone interview and was called back for the face to face interview. I got to choose when I wanted to come in of the available times because I was "still # 1. I chose the fitst appt. I thought I had great interviews. They all went over the allotted times. I sent a thsnk you note to all. I didn't get the job. I asked for feedback so that I could hopefully improve. The recruiter said she hadn't gotten feedback but that she would and get back to me. She never has. I feel kind of mistreated. Like I was ahead through the 3rd quarter and then git blindsided. Any advice or opinions?

For a job for about a year now!? Why won't anybody hire me? I've been on interviews but, mostly all I get are scam/spam emails from these people saying they will give me millions of dollars if I help them??

I have a job interview this coming week which is awesome, but I am a single parent and the job’s hours are NOT flexible at all. I know I shouldn’t have even applied, but it’s a GREAT job and part of me didn’t think they would even be interested in me. Now what do I do?

I do well in the interview process but I am not getting hired. I was a finalist three times in my 5 interviews. I am getting frustrated. What is your take.

My situation is complicated. I worked for the government for 28 years and held 5 similar positions all promotions. 3 years ago there was a huge change in management and employee retirements both elective and forced. I loved my career until the new director came on board. She made my life miserable but I stuck it out until!!! The part I'm legally bound to not disclose is what I need advice on...Ive heard many times from Recruitors to tell potential employers that I quit. Technically I did but when they ask why, what should I say that doesn't bring a negative to the table???

Thought I’d share my experience on a recent information interview I had with a recruiter for a national employment agency to talk about my job placement challenges and employment opportunities. I have a big gap in my resume since my last job in 2008, due to an illness, and I’ve been trying relentlessly to get back into a finance career with no success. She filters through hundreds of resumes on a weekly bases and finds that her biggest placement challenge is not finding candidates that lack skills and experience but finding resumes with little to no employer perceived risks like long employment gaps and job hopping. The on-boarding costs for a new employee is an expensive investment and the stigma most companies associate to applicants who present with these risks factors is typically negative. She suggest getting active with skill building activities like online/classroom training, volunteer, or career development workshops to build up my resume. She also suggest getting myself prepared to answer tough interview questions around why I left my last job and what I’ve been doing during my time off. I feel like I walked away from our talk with great ideas and tools to help me develop a better job search strategy. I know getting back into a good job in my field will take some time and effort but hopefully it will all pay off. So if you’re struggling to find a job like me; Keep at it and don’t give up!!
