Really hate that shit.
Man I wish we lived in a world without lies:
> Sorry but your resume sucked, it makes you look like a noob
> Sorry but you are too young, we need someone older
> Sorry but you are overqualfied for this job and we dont wanna pay you that much
> Sorry but we picked someone related to the owner
> Sorry but we had to hit a quota for black people
AT LEAST THEN YOU WOULD FUCKING KNOW WHAT TO CHANGE ON THE NEXT JOB APP
"Thank you very much for speaking with us, anon. We will let you know of our decision regarding your application in one or two weeks. Enjoy the rest of your day."

Hiring manager here. Biggest truth of a job interview? It is the *last* step in the hiring process. You have no idea how depressing it is when you go through 200 resumes that a shit recruiter forwards for a single entry level position and find that not a one has a goddamned idea what the actual job entails.
For it to at least be in the ballpark. I manage the workforce operations team for a large MSO's sales centers. 1600 heads, plus another 500 or so vendors. If you've ever done call center work, you know what "workforce" means. The specific title is "workforce administrator."
I don't need the resumes of 50 secretaries. I don't need 50 resumes of people with no experience in administering a schedule. I sure as hell don't need drones who shotgun their resume out at every Monster.com listing in the world.
For me is, I always look for shift managers from fast food franchises. They know how to manage schedules, they know how to do basic payroll. They know how to communicate with HR and coordinate in busy times. They may not have done it to this scale, but they know the nuts and bolts of it, and often they're ready, whether they actually know it or not.
To clarify, I should have said "The specific title in this case is "workforce administrator.""
Others I've had to deal with? "Forecasting coordinator." What does that mean? I do NOT need 23 wedding and event planners (true story.) I sure as fuck don't need a meteorologist (even more fucked up true story.)
>Having reviewed your application for the position as Composite materials engineer, we regret to inform you that we have decided to continue the selection process with other candidates who, based on an overall assessment of professional and personal competences, we find to be a better match for the position.
>mfw my boss got promoted and I applied for my boss' old role
>required 3-5 years experience, I had 4 but had only been at the company for 1
>end up making it through 3 rounds of interviews
>passed up by an outside hire with 20 years of experience
I'm at peace with it now because it's not like it was his intention to cockblock my career like that, he's just trying to make it in this world too but COME THE FUCK ON
> entry level job
> "i don't need someone with no experience."
> expecting quality resumes from people who are applying to answer the phone for $10-15/hr.
> thinks people ought to know some hidden meaning of "workforce."
kill yourself. We spotted the retard and it's you.
>almost all of my resume is fake
>I'm glib and charming and speak in the most glittering of generalities about my 'previous jobs' in interviews
>most of my interviewers love me and want to hire me right off the bat
>if any of them bother to call my references or try to verify employment, I've hired firms that will play along with me
I've been looking for a job for three months and I keep getting better and better at faking everything and, as a consequence, keep getting better and better job offers. Look into it.
>Rejected by McDonalds
>Rejected by Supermarket
>Interviewed for many big ticket item sales jobs
>Fair few offers
>Still receiving calls 3 months after accepting a job
I hate sales though, what have I done?

My team *runs* call centers, we don't take calls. And our starting salary for an entry level applicant is $36-40k a year.
I don't need experience, I can teach the job. What I need are people who at least understand the general function of the position. When I say "administrator," again, I'm not looking for secretaries. Apparently you're too retarded to understand that "workforce administrator" is a clear-cut title. Workforce, a force of people who perform work. Administrator, a person who engages in administration. Workforce administrator, a person who administrates a workforce.
Then again, what do I expect from NEETs and bronies like yourself who can't be bothered to google shit.
how can he not know that he's cockblocking your career when the job requires 3-5 years of experience and he has 20? he's a dipshit for applying to lower level jobs and fucking legitimate candidates over.
That's nothing. I applied for my boss'said job when he retired. I had 9 years of experience, knew the system inside out, had contacts with other agencies we worked with, and was looking long term. They brought in an outsider a couple of years away from retirement and could barely get into his e-mail.
After I left, they hired a DBA who couldn't do SQL, a paint sniffer, and an H1B that suddenly bailed 2 weeks in.
You're a retard, your workforce is probably shit because you hire based on your already establoshed prejudices.
Yes sifting through shit CVs is a lot of work but if you're too lazy and stupid to pick out ideal candidates that's your problem.
>entry level job
Again, you're not going to find people with entry level administrative work... If they have it, they've already entered and moved up and will not be applying for your entry positition.
