I have applied with every company in Houston and the surrounding areas. I cannot get a job to save my live. I have a Bachelor's degree and I am working on my Master's. I have strong work history and great references. I only apply for what I am qualified for but can't catch a break!!!!

Omg really. I do have a BS degree and I minored in English. People make mistakes and there is something called auto correct. It corrected minor 3 times to minute. Stop judging and belittling people unless you have job information!

I have had a very stable work history recently let go from my job.I am very excited
about learning something new,I have lots of energy to burn and so much to give.
Never really had the opportunity to learn something else besides what I have been doing.So I think it has been the best that has ever happened to me.Sometimes we need
to focus on what really makes us happy.

I know I'm late to this message board but I think Ruthann is correct. As an Executive that scans resumes regularly, I won't hire anyone with spelling and grammar errors. Spell check and proof reading are essential tools, in order to prove you will minimize your mistakes in a professional environment.

Finding a job is hard work, ask yourself several questions. Would you hire yourself based on your resume? How are you marketing yourself? Does your resume show your 'wins' on the first page? Or do I need to get to the 2nd page to see who YOU are? How are you dressing to interviews? How are you answering the questions during the interview?

There's a science to this process and the more you know, the better off you will be. Educate yourself on what employers look for and how to market yourself. Jobs are out there to those who want them, let nothing hold you back from becoming who you want to be!

Getting hired is more about connection than whats in your resume. My resume is loaded with all kinds of experience and I get almost no responce.

Connections are important, if you are unemployed currently, sign up for a bunch of meetups on www.meetup.com and try to meet local small business owners. If you really tried you could literally meet 50 a week and at least some of them must have open positions. Eventually you will find a job through it. Got the suggestion here www.jobunlocker.com/blog/cant-find-a-job-6-little-known-places-to-look/

Try some of the other ones too and keep trying to expand your networking. It's so important!

Sfi is online site I've been with for a few months now accredited by the BBB. Its not overnight rich but if your willing to read the broken down over a thirty day period launchpad training. Youll do fine. Its done great for me. Ill also be there for u to contact if you need assistance once your signed up through this link. The forum seems to think that my link is a phone number so where I spelled out the numbers you have to substitute with actual numbers

Hope to see you there and good luck

Mature jobseeker in Houston, Texas

I have been looking for a job for over two years. I have filled out countless applications over the Internet. Aside from verifications that the company received my app. and resume, I never hear anything from any of these establishments. I have tons of experience with excellent work history. I also have a B.A. I try to contact some of the companies that I applied with but usually cannot get ahold of anyone. Many times I am told not to call in that they will contact me. I am an older applicant and I am not even getting interviews. I have reworked my resume to show recent experience hoping that my age will not be obvious. I have been told that my resume is good. I have done networking in meetups to no avail. Does anyone have any suggestions? This is getting ridiculous.
