Help! Why Won't anyone Hire Me?

Whether you’re hoping for a career change or simply looking to get hired into role, it’s not unsual to ask yourself why you’re not succeding in finding a job. This post from My Life I Guess looks at some of the reasons.

The process of finding a new job can be discouraging at times. You spend weeks, or even months, submitting application after application, going on interviews, waiting by the phone, only to come up empty-handed.

With the average job search taking five to six months, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, you must put in the effort to find the right job and be patient when dealing with the inevitable setbacks.

The job search process is not linear. You may have to apply for dozens of jobs before getting a single interview, and you may be rejected many times before landing a job.

You Are Expecting Too Much Asking for an outrageous salary could be why no one is hiring you. You deserve to get paid what you’re worth, but do your research and ensure you don’t have unrealistic salary expectations.

You Have a Criminal Record Criminal records can prevent you from working in specific roles and industries, but plenty of opportunities are still available.
