I hate applying for jobs!

I’m always vigilant waiting for a phone call from a possible application, then the phone rings, I answer it and it always ends of being a medical debt collector, of course I hung up immediately.

It’s so horrible that you have to deal with that garbage. I suppose they hide themselves on call display.

I think they are spoofing their numbers.

Call and bug them instead.
Call the place you want to work at and say ‘my name is so and so, I turned in an application to your workplace and I was wondering if you had the time to look at it yet’
Then say ‘when is the soonest I can get an interview?’

Gets yer foot in the door :slightly_smiling_face:

I appreciate the advice but I’ve tried this before, pretty effective for a small company, but when I’m applying to a big company they typically told me to wait my turn in the application line.

Edit: I’m going to try emailing the companies now to see if that works better.

Or go down in person and talk to someone there. Department stores are big businesses too and when I applied at various department stores I waited about three days after putting in an application and then went there in person and casually asked if they made a decision yet. They’ll remember you.

My last interview I wasn’t really qualified for the job but some other experience. But i wrote a good cover letter that was intriguing ao i got the interview. The interview was terrifying as i hadnt done one in 12 years and had no idea how to answer questions. Still got the job though.

So just apply to stuff you may like but even if your not really qualified they may still take a chance with you.

The requirements in job postings are what they want but not necessarily what they need right now.

That’s what happened with me getting into insurance. My boss needed someone badly and she wasn’t sure I was a good fit, but she rolled the dice. I turned out to be quite good at it.

They give you three months to study for and earn your Level I license. I had it in three weeks.

Thats awesome man. Yeah when i got hired i booked a bunch of contract portfolios in my first 2 weeks so they asked me if there was anything I needed to let them know. So they bought me the office chair of my choice :grin:
