Thank you @Enlightenedbeing
Whoever made up the saying “no news is good news” must have had rocks in their head. Not hearing anything is so stressful.
Keep the faith Leafy, it will all work out in the wash.
Thank you @Sarah
Keep trying brho
I will. There’s still another job I applied for. Thanks @Nada_de_nada
It sort of depends on the job and the employer. Mine is trying to hire new insurance advisors in small towns, it can take months to get one good new applicant. A friend in the city told me that his I.T. department advertised a position and received over 3,700 applications in several days. The majority were from people who weren’t even remotely qualified and some didn’t even reference the correct job in their applications. The flood was obviously time-consuming to wade through.
I guess it’s possible that they will call me at some point. I was just hoping they would call me right away. I’m ready to work.
sorry to hear they didn’t call yet =/
don’t give up hope though… you’ll find a job eventually!
Thank you @lekkerhondje
Looks like you “bet” on the wrong job, j/k
When it comes to finding a job rejection is the name of the game. When I was applying for jobs, most places ignored me, some sent me rejection messages, I only had a couple of interviews, but I still managed to get a job.
Apply to as many places as possible, the best and easiest way to do that is on job websites like indeed,com
Ok, I’ll check it out.
On indeed you fill out your resume (Basically just a form you fill out). Then you send it to jobs that are listed. You can also make your resume public (to employers, not the general public) so employers can seek you out. A lot of employers don’t bother posting their jobs, they just peruse resumes and contact people they are interested in so I recommend you do that too.
I turned in my application Friday night. I know the office is closed on the weekend. So they would have gotten the application yesterday morning. I don’t know how quickly they would read the application. I guess it would depend on how many they got. Maybe they’ll call today to setup an interview. Maybe they’ll call tomorrow. Maybe they’ll never call.
Are they actively seeking out employees or did you just show up and give them a resume?
If they are actively looking for employees they may wait a couple weeks to gain a bunch of candidates, then interview the ones they like or are the best fit for the job, so it could be a while before you hear from them.
I handed in my resume, then it was about a week later I heard from them. Then my job took over a week to get. I had several interviews, a police background check, a driving history check and had to write numerous tests. It was quit an ordeal.
They are actively looking for someone.
In that case I wouldn’t start worrying yet. Most employers don’t hire the first applicant that walks through the door. When it came to my job they had over 300 applicants before they closed down the listing on indeed, and they only hired 20 something employees.
oh god! Well I guess there’s still some hope.
I take it you live in a big city? I live in a very small town. Their hiring pool is small. You have to be able to get a gaming license to work there so that counts a lot of people out.
No, I don’t live in a big city, I live in a medium sized town about 45 minutes outside a big city.
But if you live in a small town that could make finding a job harder.
It does make it harder. There aren’t many jobs to go around. Not very many employers.
