I went in to fill out an application last Thursday at a local Home Instead. Following that, I had an on-the-spot interview.
I just received a letter in the mail today (dated yesterday) that they appreciate my interest with them, however, they've chosen candidates that more closely met their needs.
In their Craigslist ads they tell you no experience needed. On their website they tell you that no professional experience is needed but caring for your own loved ones will suffice as experience if you do choose to bring caregiving experience to the table.
How on Earth can you say to someone like me that you've chosen candidates who more closely meet your needed, when, in reality, you tell people they don't need any experience doing that but are willing to consider care for own relatives if a person has done just that?
My caregiving experience is no different than my mom's. Both of us shared in caring for her parents and doing the same things for the both of them. They can hire her part-time, but not me?
