Hello!

Below is a story I posted in July, just to refresh some mums and following that is my new and exciting news.

Businesses not letting you know you were unsuccessful.

My son is madly sending resumes and has applied for jobs over the phone and in person. I am amazed at the amount of companies that do not bother to get back to you and let you know that you were unsuccessful this time around after a job interview. The last job he applied for, he was in the final group of people to be considered for the position. He had a face to face interview which went very well , and was told that the position would be decided on by the following week. He waited for a phone call to be told what the decision was but that phone call never came. He really wanted to be told even if he was unsuccessful and if this was the case, he wanted to ask what areas he could improve on etc. Seriously I think not bothering to ring back applicants is down right rude and very unprofessional. I really think that manners and morals have slipped and many people just think about them selves and can’t be bothered with other people unless it is to benefit them. Surely a phone call is not to much to ask from a business.

Well everyone my update: Drum roll : My son has just completed a week at his new job. He landed a position locally and in his chosen field, it has been many many months in the coming but finally all his hard work has paid off. He does not have to move away, the wage is better than some jobs he applied for in the big cities and best of all, he is happy and loves the work and staff and business. I am one happy and proud mum and he is one happy and contented young man.
Thank you mums for all your lovely wishes and to the mums and your children who are searching for work, all my very best wishes go out to you all, stay strong and keep applying and eventually it will pay off.
Cheers cherz. :-)

  • Im having a problem finding a job at the moment. I really hate they never given you a call or even a email to say that you have not been chosen for the role or position. Thumbs up to your son.

  • That is fantastic news Cherz! I’m so happy for him and for you. It would certainly be a load of both of your minds. Although it was a tough path to go down, I guess everything happens for a reason and now he has a great job he loves!
