I'm a recruiter for the largest staffing and recruiting firm in the country. I'm seeing a lot of people on this thread who are extremely stressed out about finding work, and I think you guys need to start seriously considering working with recruiters to find jobs. NOT ALL RECRUITERS ARE EQUAL! I work for Aerotek, where we value your goals, skills, and interests and we find you a "perfect fit": the job that actually utilizes your experience and abilities. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you are looking for work in the Portland, OR metro area. I can be reached via this thread, and, if you're seriously interested, please let me know and I will share my email.
I appreciate your input, for me and it appears for many of the posters, recruiters don't want to be bothered. I've reached out to recruiters, always professional and congenial, they just either stop responding or ignore me altogether. I've been at this for years. Companies perceive millennials as the only golden ticket and they are only hiring their generation.
Thank you for sharing your point of view as a recruiter. I am really struggling finding s recruiter in my sector, procurement. I have had a bad experience with a recruiter but I know not everyone is equal. I really thank you for sharing you point of view.
Hello, I have worked for 6.8 years in Financial sector ( Stock Exchange and a Bank). I had to quit my job in bank and relocate to another country because of my marriage. It's been two years now that I am unable to find a job in this country in banking or finance. Honestly, there is a part of me who does not want to get into numbers anymore. Throughout my career, customer service was my strength. I love talking to people, solving their problems, it makes me happy. Now I am stuck at home. I need to be financially independent but at the same time I need to find the right career for me. Kindly guide what all career opportunities I can explore after banking with a post graduation diploma in Banking. And how can I get into Hospitality Industry? Thanks.
What have other people done if they had a long maternity leave? Should I offer to help find a replacement? Or is that crazy since that'd be like offering up my job?
I have been working for three years in my current role and this is my first job after completing my STEM PhD. I work at a Big Oil company, but was just offered a job by a major chemical company and another big oil company. The jobs are nearly identical to my current one, but they are paying about $30,000 to $35,000 more than I make now (20% more than I make). While I am likely to take one of the roles, I wonder, am I being underpaid or are these offers higher to try and recruit me away from my current role?
I was wondering if any of you ladies have any suggestions on work from home jobs? I really would like to not go back to my 9-5 job and be away from my little. I would greatly appreciate the suggestions. I would like to not have to pay to start and don't want to be selling scentsy, etc. TIA!
