if you are looking for jobs that pay $13-16/hr then tampa will be great for you. there are plenty of corporate backwater call center shops around town. if u r highly educated with all sorts of degrees looking for high paying corporate jobs then forget tampa. sure, some do find those jobs but generally speaking its not here. stay in NYC, Boston, Chicago, SF or DC for those jobs that reward your education and experience with 6 figure salaries and 50k bonuses. tampa's big money is generally more about small business, creative entrepenuers and all the medical people.

I would say keep in touch periodically if you really want to work at Verizon but move on to other opportunities for now. Don't hold your breath for this one job and let other opportunities pass you by.

It's very possible that there is no job opening at all. Was this an ad that you replied to? Often huge corporations will run an ad (albeit phony) just to get a guage of the employee pool and there is no real job, however if they find some worthy candidates, will keep those aps/resumes on file and pull those out when an opening arises and use those pre-chosen candidates as their real pool. Some companies run ads constantly, in different markets, different cities.

Personally I think you could get a managment position at a company more easily and would probly make much for money. Why move down the ladder? Good luck with your search.

My BF currently works for the V call center. I remember when he first applied, it did take a while to complete the whole interview process. He also had a lot of experience and was a manager w/ a different call center in Miami (not verizon). He had to take tests online for them, then do a phone interview, and then I think he also went for interviews in person a few times too. It just takes a while, but I would definately be pro active and call them or send them a letter thanking them for interviewing with you. I heard that usually works for people.
