you are always there for me! (i just always see your name in threads)

Keep trying, and don't give up. Consider doing part time work if you have not. Also have you thought about relocating to other cities or overseas? How about moving to Australia where i live? The Unemployment situation here is not as bad as over there but it still not easy getting work here in Australia.

That's what i did and when I went to the interview the lady asked me

"So if you were to be offered a full-time job from another company what would you do?


So someone didn't even want to offer me a part-time job because they felt I wouldn't be there long. That interview was on 1/27 and today is 3/9 which will be 2 months soon lol

I lied when I was asked that question. I said I planned on working my way up to management. HA!!! Yeah right... I just have this job until I can get something better. My employer doesn't need to know that.

Employers BS all the time. I did what I had to in order to get the job. What do they expect? Let's say you take a job for $7.25 an hour and get offered a job that pays $16.00 an hour. Any idiot with half a brain would take the job that pays $16.00 an hour.

I wasn't expecting that foolish question so I was caught off guard. That would have been the perfect job for now. It was 14 hours a week and similar to my last job and the company was 3 mins down the street. And on top of all that I would have had time to still job search and go on interviews. The lady stated that they preferred someone who already had a full-time job and was going to use that job as their side job

Too bad that all your experience as an Employment Counselor didn't prepare you for such a situation. Too bad too that you weren't able to sufficiently collect yourself and come up with a response which would have nailed the position since you seem to think you were the perfect candidate for the job. Best you learn to be on your toes and expect the unexpected. There is no "set script" where interviewing is concerned.

She felt I wouldn't be there long which is why she gave my resume to another guy in the company. Her exact words were you appear to be "young and employable" and would find something else soon.

Yes I remember that from another thread. You subsequently blew off the person to whom she passed your resumé (you decided without even interviewing that the job was too far away from your apartment to be viable) so that whole thing didn't exactly work out too well and you lost good contacts in the process. Oh well. Better luck next time.

Wrong, the person she gave the resume to interview me and is now a connection. The person who emailed me about a job opening who works for the same company found me on careerbuilder. At the time I thought he received my resume from the guy I had a networking interview with a week prior to his email.
