Should I reach out again regarding the same position I already got rejected from?
January 4,2021 at 11:16PM UTC
Hi all -
Happy New Year! I am going back and forth on something and thought I would get some feedback and opinions. I applied for a job back in December that resonated with me in every way. My skills, background, where I want to go in my career, and the company itself all align perfectly. I got an interview request an hour after applying so that gave me a lot of hope and confidence that they were feeling the same way based on my resume and cover letter. I had the initial phone screening interview and thought it went well. I prepped for hours for just the screening and went in feeling very prepared and know I conveyed how excited I was about the opportunity. I was nervous (I always am for interviews) and am wondering if I just didn't come across well in some way. Because a couple of days after the interview, they told me they would not be moving forward with me.
I wrote back to convey my disappointment but thanked them for their time and asked for any feedback they may have. I never heard back. They then immediately reposted the position and it is still open on Linkedin (it's been about a month since I applied).
I'm wondering if I should reach out again and ask for another chance? Or just cut my losses? I really do think I'm a great fit all around and am not sure what disqualified me. Most of all, I am excited about the position and the work the company does. Let me know what you think!

I've been with my company for 3 years and I LOVE my job! I've taken on many new projects and volunteered for extra duties. My review last month was very positive but the problem is the salary increase level. Last year, with also a very positive review, the increase was 2%. This year it was 2.5%. With the rate of inflation let alone my performance, this is disappointing. Our company is rather transparent about financials so I do not think this is a budgetary concern. My suggestions that my position be reviewed for a "bump" since my responsibilities are at a higher level than when I began and assumed from those at the next level up have resulted in brief conversations but not taken seriously. What coiuld be the issue and how do I move up? What is a good next step in addressing these concerns?

Hi, does anyone know how to adjust into an in office 9-6 job whilst keeping up with good/healthy habits i.e.
exercising, yoga/meditation, at least 7hrs of sleep, healthy meals? I've been trying and my methods seem a bit off with my schedule, not having enough time and feeling tired.
Just checking if any other professional has a different method I could try out.
In my mid 20s, no kids, don't party at all (I just moved so no friends yet lol) just for reference

3rd round interviews
I have been on several interviews each reaching the third round stage for Executive Assistant roles. My feedback has been excellent, but then they pass on me. I'm not sure if I'm asking the right questions, or if this market is just really challenging. Has this been happening to anyone else, and do you have any recommendations? This has really been a blow to me during my search.

Long story short
I got a job way below my pay range and experience because I was laid off. I’ve been working there for 7 months and I’m miserable. I hate the job, my tasks, everything is so manual. I can’t take it. I find myself procrastinating a lot, and not wanting to do the work. ?
I really think I’m depressed ?

How does one deal with being pushed out at work?
I do not believe I will be fired because I have an open injury case, but it is very clear that I am not part of the popular crowd. I am now given only the most basic assignments and other people are running my department. I am not invited to any decision-making meetings. I do not have a supportive boss. She tries to be the queen bee for everything. I’ve gone to HR about other things, and they have told me that’s the way it is, it’s never gonna change—too bad, too sad.
I am trying to see this as a light-duty vacation but I am used to rolling up my sleeves and leading projects, so I feel like a loser because I am being replaced, rejected, and ignored.
I am not a fit and after a year of trying it is clear that I stick out like a giant sore thumb at this company.
I have tried to see the silver lining but I just feel embarrassed. This is not a company that I want to stay at forever so I gave up the idea of trying to fix it but I JUST CANNOT stop the hurt feelings and embarrassment.
Note: I am 100% cleared for work so there is no medical or legal reason to redistribute my work.
I am a single mom so I cannot quit. I am very nicely compensated, so finding comparable has been/will be hard.
I was always taught and thrived when I do more and try to be the best. It has always worked. I have never been rejected like this. They specifically want me to do less and to stop talking. I don’t know how to adjust to that.
