Hercules Posted April 26, 2008 Share Posted April 26, 2008 So, I'm in the midst of job searching, for about the fourth time in the last year and a half. However, this time it is a little different - I'm looking for something much more long term. So, I figured I would post a thread that is kind of comprehensive, and informational, and see if anyone wants to participate. Basically, share your job search stories here. Are you currently looking for a job and need some advice? Have you had bad interview experiences before? Have you ever been offered a job that you didn't think you were going to get? What mediums do you most for job searching? Really..... anything that you can think of. Ask advice, post resumes and cover letters...... anything that you need help with or you think will add to the thread, whether you are applying for a CFO position, or you are 15 and looking to fill out an application for White Castle. As for me, even though I'm doing the Secondary Education thing right now in school, I am currently looking for either a management position or a straight up sales job that I can stay at for a while. I have solid education with my Marketing major, plus, I was an Assistant Manager for two businesses, and owned a Limited Liability Corporation for two years in which I was the brains and braun behind. Right now I have my resume (right now I have about 9 working resumes that I tailor to the specific job listings as I go) on Monster and CareerBuilder, plus I'm constantly looking at craigslist and in the Sunday paper. I've gotten a totaly of 6 hours of sleep over the past 5 days because I have been applying for jobs (about 80 total so far) and have been trying to finish my final papers, and get stuff ready so we can move out of this apartment by Sunday. And, last week I interviewed with NutriSystem for an inside sales position, but I haven't heard back, so it is safe to say that I didn't get it (training starts Monday) - I figured it was time to step up the job search again. So, any suggestions? Thoughts? Anyone just getting out of school and looking for something/have something lined up? Anything job search related goes.....
