Update on my job search

One job I applied for, I was "over qualified". Uhm, I am ready and willing to work despite being "over qualified. I would do the job well at the pay offered, so what's the problem?

I submitted a resume today and am in wait mode again.

Some I never heard back from with any explanation.

It is very frustrating. But I WILL find a job.  We just can't make it with gas and grocery prices going up.

I'm in the same boat.  I've come across listings for so many jobs I'm 'overqualified' for, as well as some I am just barely unqualified for.  I'm in the process of applying for a position as a clerk at my local police department.  I feel like I'm just sitting around, waiting, though, because I can't actually submit the application until I submit my typing test results.  I took the test 13 days ago, and I'm still waiting for the certificate to come.  The site stated it could take up to 3 weeks, but I'm going stir crazy!  I want that stupid piece of paper so I can feel like I'm actually doing something.

I always hate that waiting period before hearing back from a job.   I hope you find one fast./  Good luck

Thanks everyone. On Friday I am going to print out a bunch of resumes...as I need pay day to get ink and then hand them out at medical facilities, the school board, etc etc.  I am going to dress up like for an interview and go out. Well if I can get rid of this cough......I thinking hacking up my lungs can not be a good look for handing our resumes. LOL
