I've tried to remain upbeat and positive and follow everything you mention in article for over a year now. I have had a few interviews (usually telephone) followed by nothing. Recruiters and career consultants have indicated that my qualifications, skills, knowledge and experience meet the specific job description yet still nothing. After how long should I just accept defeat and give up?
Gail, I did not want to dismiss your comment with just a few statements, but instead decided to write another post regarding your question. Please feel free to view my response here: http://www.interviewing.com/an-open-response-to-accepting-defeat-in-the-job-search/ Please continue to voice your questions and concerns about your job search. It is only through conversation, interaction, and action that a shift can begin and hopefully over time changes for the better can be made. Thank you for your comment.
