Why are you sending me inMail, offering opportunities and never bother to follow up???
Again today the same thing happening. A few days ago I received an inmail from a recruiter in a company that they have several opportunities, that my background looks good and can we meet? We exchange available time and then... nothing. Complete ghosting. As if they never contacted me! I almost feel I want to contact their boss and tell them what a bad opinion now I have about their company. And it is a very well known one. Why? Where is the professionalism, the common courtesy? So frustrated.

Grateful to finally have interviews but I've used up all my PTO time including medical and dental appointments to complete the early rounds, what else can I do?...I've been struggling at a job that I've longed to leave for few months due to a toxic work situation.
The company won't let me take a lunch break and when I block out times to at least take a short break and they fill them with "required" meetings causing me to miss appointments. It's been a negative situation since I started and I'm emotionally at my breaking point so I need one of these to work!
I couldn't just quit as I needed to find a job first and then bang...a few opportunities. I'm in later rounds for three companies but I'm struggling to find time to interview. So many rounds at all the companies that I've used up doctor, dentist, PTO etc. vacation days and I'm not sure what to do to continue in this process besides taking a chance and leaving my role to interview.
I feel strongly about the roles but since I'm at the stage with senior members before the holidays, they don't have flexibility with their schedules. I've tried a few rounds with before and after work but these later rounds seem to be less flexible when it's with larger groups. Two companies want the successful candidate to start at the beginning of January so I don't want to miss my chance but as much as I'm ready to leave I'm worried to roll the dice if I don't get one of the positions and not have a job.
Please know that I'm grateful for this problem but it's a tough one to manage! I'd appreciate your advice!

Why are there so many anonymous posters on here?
I am not talking about the people asking for advice, or making company-specific comments, but the people responding to the posts with general, non-personal, non-company specific comments.

Hey looking for some advice.
So i got laid off this past week....and I'm trying to figure out my plan going forward. Luckily i have some cushion to be flexible. My career has always been data in one form or another....moving it...reporting it. I have a BS in Computer Information Technology. As I have always been intested in healthcare....I am interested in working with EMRs, so Im investigating a second BS in Health Information Management hoping it can help get my foot in the door (have had no luck in tthe past). But at 53 I'm wondering if its worth it.

Struggling career pivoter
Has anyone changed careers from being a teacher to being in Human Resources and how long did it take to get a job? Also, how many HR roles did you apply to?
