You may not like the answer, but it is important that you hear it. When people are out of work for a while. It sends a message that’s hard not to listen to.

Do you really think employers are trying to help you?

You already know you can’t trust recruiters—they tell you as much as they think you need to know to take the job they after representing so they collect their payday.

The skills needed to find a job are different yet complement the skills needed to do a job.

  1. Wow, if only I could find 19 engineering positions that match my background
    within 2 years. Seems in the part of the country where I was relocated to,
    there’s maybe 6 matching jobs per year. Wish me luck I don’t lose my house
    & become homeless by the time I find a new employer. Oh, and I’ve been so
    flexible, and I’ve moved so many times, I haven’t lived in my house in 6
    years & my hips & back are ruined. Doctor’s here are telling me I’m
    destined for a hip replacement very shortly (I’m only 43).

  4. Wow. It’s so sad how many stereo-types and assumptions are made about people who are looking for a job. It makes me want to vomit regarding how applicants are made to grovel. I had a phone interview yesterday and when I played the conversation back in my head later that night, I had to admit to myself that I sounded kind of desperate. I’d rather live in my car and keep what dignity that I have left. Hopefully, it does not come to that.
