So for the past few weeks I have been interviewing, doing trial shifts & haven’t seemed to get anywhere. I am a hard worker & have plenty of experience but some companies aren’t even responding to me after I’ve done a trial shift (unpaid).
It’s like as soon as they find out about my situation (I’m on maternity since my son was born asleep in September) they just don’t know what to say so they just don’t respond to me. I do have 3 part time jobs I can go back too but I want to move forward in my life & tbh I need a full time job as I need the money. Indeed used to be great until every job wants you to do some online test which makes it even harder to apply for loads of jobs. Just so annoyed and want to move forward with my life...

Fingers crossed. Not really bothered about what I end up doing, would just be nice if these places told me what I was doing wrong if anything so I can improve for the next time xx

I had the same thing. Was like radio silence if I didn’t get the job! Just wanted to know what I was doing wrong. Went to 10 interviews and didn’t even hear back. My 11th interview was different, sat there for like 2 hours chatting and they contacted me the next day!! Hang on in there and keep going xx

I totally agree about Indeed. It's like every job wants a long assessment or test - what happened to experience and education? I've also seen an uptick in scam job posts on there. Try over on LinkedIn, or better yet - research good companies in your area, then go to each of their websites and apply from their careers page.

You'll find something, just keep applying. I've been unemployed for almost a year, yet apply to about 5 jobs per week. I had ONE interview scheduled that I ended up getting food poisoning that day and had to cancel it. I didn't bother to reschedule because I felt like it was already a bad mark on my reputation that I couldn't keep an appointment.

But I believe everything has a way of working out as long as you keep trying. Something is bound to come along. It's still very hard to land a decent full time job right now with Covid, so don't worry too much. Keep trying 😊
