Recruiter's Opinion

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 value your contribution, for me and it shows up for a significant number of the blurbs, selection representatives would prefer not to be pestered. I've connected with scouts, constantly proficient and friendly, they just either quit reacting or overlook me by and large. https://www.australianassignmentshelp.com/

    Dear Anonymous,
    Do you work with candidates outside the Portland area or connected with like - minded professionals in the New York City terrain?
    I'd welcome connecting and working with you.

    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.

I have worked very hard (probably harder than someone with a degree) to get where I am in my career. I started out as a data entry clerk and through my hard work, I have worked up to being a Contracts Manager. I am now looking to relocate and find a similar position at another company; however, I am finding it difficult to find a job due to not having a college education. What can I do to show or prove to potential employers that I can do the job just as good as any other candidate?

I am so paranoid about people finding out I'm pregnant before I want to say anything so I've been wearing baggy clothes and avoided any mention of this even on FB in case I'm connected to someone at work who sees...any other advice about how to avoid being found out too soon??

I recently got accepted into the graduate program of my choice for Fall 2018. Now, I'm trying to decide if I should go full time or part time. My current job is fine, but it is an administrative role where I don't feel like there is room for true professional growth or skill building. Thankfully, I do have managers who are supportive. I'm considering speaking to them about continuing my role here, but part-time. Has anyone ever tried to do this with a job? Is it demeaning to my organization and my role? I'm not sure how to proceed.

Like so many women in tech, I work with a LOT of men. I often feel like the outsider, and they're definitely a bit vulgar. I feel like they collaborate with me fine for the most part and handle our interactions professionally. Still, I feel really isolated - and it makes me not want to go to work some time. Does anyone else feel that way? Any ideas on how to make this situation work better?
