Is it just me?

Is it just me or does it look like a majority of companies are going through employment agencies? For both full time, part time and placements.

So who is ultimately footing the bill for this? Probably the employee that needs work. Wouldn't you agree? What do you think?

Hello again!

Well it has been awhile since I posted. Got a run around from the last job that I was at. They decided to hire somebody who did not have experience,smoked weed every night and found fault in everything that was done.
I could go on venting about this but it really sucks and I would rather stay positive.
I have an interview tommorrow for the position of Torch cutter at a metal recycle plant. 6 days /50 hours a week. That would be good to help pay the bills. Not sure if I can make it to the place on time in the mornings as I look after my son.

Over qualified, underqualified and rejection letters.....

Received a few more rejection letters. As I open them I cannot help but think how considerate they actually took the time to send a letter of rejection.

Most companies do not send letters or even an email these days.

Some potential employers do call and break the news to you over the phone. This can make the discussion awkward even if it does seem like the best thing to do.

One false thing that I came across on someone elses blog was that
over qualified + under qualified = unqualified
(Sorry I do not remember the www.)
This is so untrue and I was suprised to even come across it, but it stuck in my head.

Let us, straighten it out!

Over means more than or greater than

Under means less than or not enough

Unqualified means not having enough qualifications.

Overqualified means having more qualifications than is required.

Keep your chin up!
