Hitting a Brick wall

As we approach the end August, my job search has met nothing but brick walls. I go this direction, I hit a brick wall. Switch direction and hit another wall. I feel like a rat that can’t get out of a maze. Doesn’t matter where I apply, I can’t get anything to fall my way. Most of my recent applications have been to retail such as Petco, michaels, hobby lobby, chipotle, walmart.  I applied to 6 different chipotle locations and only got two interviews.  I applied to three michaels location and got one interview.  I also applied to 3 to 5 petco locations and got 1 interview.  I do not understand what more I could do.  At my interview at michaels, the girl that interview me gave me her own personality evaluation to see how I would fit in.  It was another way to see if I would be a employee that she would need to train and if my personality would be a difficult one to work with.  I’ve also been applying to position within the city, but nothing there.  One of those position is working at the public library.  You think that would be a straight forward position as long as you enjoying working with public.  Right?  Seem I don’t meet the qualifications for that.

  1. I am sorry you are running into trouble. I hope that everything works out for you soon. I absolutely HATE those personality quizzes…I don’t think they help anyone. Fingers crossed you find something!

  2. Good luck, Michael. It is great that some employers are happy to interview you – it is a good sign 🙂 Hopefully you will land work at some point. I remember when I was job hunting, for a few months I didn’t get an interview and it was discouraging. Sometimes it’s just a matter of luck, and I’m sure there is a right job for you somewhere at some point. Cheering you on.
