Cool The Funny Thing About Job Interviews

You apply for the job, go thru 1-3 interview sessions. You talk about your background experience, and why you'll be a good fit for the position. Sometimes you have to complete assessments before an interview is even offered, which take 30-60 mins to complete (no compensation). But in reality, you wouldn't be working for the company if they weren't offering you a paycheck. So whats the point?? In reality, I dont give a Sh!T about your company! I'm just here for the money and health insurance.

The recruiter that conduct the interview makes the final decision, but yet its based on their personal opinion of your qualifications. Its ALL just a silly little game; of you telling the company what they want to hear.

LOL. Sounds like your very frustrated with the process. Everyone has to do it and every job has their own process. Just go with and get your money! Good luck with everything and bless you.

You are being controlled by money. Does that make you feel frustrated? Aren't you tired of being a slave to your 9 to 5 job?

If you can find something you care about though and enjoy doing, it makes the whole working experience so much better.

That's why I'm in school so I can eventually do what I enjoy. However, I do need something to help pay the bills. After being laid off in May from a company I'd been with for 17 years, it's really hard to get back out there and find a new job. I was working from home and would like to stay there for my next job since I do have to drive my son here and there during the day.

Default Not every job is 2 or 3 interviews...

I never rarely ever had to interview 2 or 3 times for a job.Those companies that do that crap...I don't waste my time with them.I think it's bull to have to go through 3 interviews let a lone 2 interviews.It's like some employers view you as someone who will just jump through hoops to please them.It makes more sense to have 1 big interview for someone instead of having 2 or 3 at different times of the week and day. I say that if an employer REALLY wants to hire someone...the employer will make certain to have his/her people in the interview with the applicant...you know..coordinate schedules so everyone is on the same page for that 1 interview date and time...but NOPE..they want you to jump through their hoops.I do have to say that the job that requires 2 or 3 interviews to get...usually is a good paying job with benefits for the most part..BUT if you know that you need to start working right away...that's not the route to go.

Working from home is not conventional and thats why many of us are doing it. To me, its a way to support my family financially and still be here for them when they need me.It keeps me sane as opposed to driving in traffic to get to work and dealing with the crazy co-workers. Like it or not, its a competitive space and most of the time there are tons of applicants gunning for positions from home. Its not easy but its worth going through the ringer if you want to work from home for a reputable company.

Ex: Apple took weeks to even contact me for a position, I did a few interview, went through a long process and finally was able to start. It takes time but ITS APPLE. Worth it for SURE!!!

I was thinking some more and job interviews and the wait time afterwards to hear back can be frustrating. Keep a positive attitude if you can.
