While looking at one of the various free newspapers I receive every week I looked as I always do at the job listings. I saw one job that fit me to a T and sent a resume right away and got a response thanking me for applying and that they would be looking at resumes and calling in for interviews. When I saw the email I immediately recognized it as a repeat response I received months ago. That time I also sent a resume for the same job, got the response which made me think I would get an interview then nothing. This tells me that what likely happened was the person they did hire quit after a few months, telling me either the company is horrible or they hired someone who was a horrible fit.
Reminds me of a radio station I applied at. That one they called me in for an interview, only to have the owner (a much older man)tell me I knew more than anyone they interviewed but because I was “too old” (he wanted people in their 20’s)he wouldn’t be hiring me. Need I mention this radio station often hires every few months too?
This is what happens when employers don’t hire me or even give me a chance. They go for what are likely the youngest applicants then when they don’t work out they have to hire again. Of course I have no way of knowing whether I would have worked out but I do know they are hiring people who aren’t good choices while I sit here unemployed.
