Does it show as Brvy having the last post in he lobby but then the actual last post is bigD for anybody else?

Edit: and now it shows up. Weird. And thanks buddy. But all it is is having a decent looking resume and the fast pass of a recruiter forwarding it to the company. He hit me with like my dream job opening like an hour later so Iím really hoping that hiring manager will like my resume.

I have no idea what you're talking about, Napa, but my guess is you're day drinking, so I support it

I forget, how difficult was your initial job search after wrapping up school? Someone needs to just punch me if I'm ever complaining about having trouble finding a job again.

Well, it was difficult in that I didn't have any interest from any of the numerous accounting firms and other companies I applied to and only found my job as a result of a friend being an intern at the company and referring me, which gave me an automatic interview with HR. And then after an OK interview I got 100% on the aptitude test they gave me which pushed me over the other candidate. Fun fact, of my bosses and the other employees that took the test BC and I were the only people to get 100%.

And so, I had a job lined up a month or so before graduation, but it wasn't a great one and I didn't make much money. And then when I left for my next job I applied to maybe 30 places, and only heard anything from maybe 3, and then only got that job after talking my way into a yes after an original no.

But this last job was pretty easy, tbh. Applied to three places, didn't hear from one, and then got offers from the other two.

Here's to hoping this search goes as easy.

That's tougher than I thought it would be for someone like you. I feel like kids these days have it easy.

Well, I had an OK GPA in college but really terrible interview skills and it was still 2009-2010 when I started looking for my first real job. And then I had a better resume but still pretty bad interview skills and was trying to get into public accounting not straight out of college which is difficult.

Now, I'm better at interviewing and have a really good resume and it's a super great job market here for finance right now.

It's just so much easier to be confident now that we know how incompetent and complacent everyone else is.

Also this. And on top of it we're both actually pretty good at our jobs, and not just compared to other people. Objectively pretty good!

Anybody know any good resume writing services? I think I should get mine looked at by a pro. Shit is getting ludicrous in my company and I need to be prepared to jump ship at a moment's notice.

The recruiter I worked with basically got mine up to speed before submitting it to anything. I do think the services are worth it, if you value your time at all.

I hate every fiber of his being. He's awful and everything he writes is wrong, coupled with being annoying. Its uncanny how awful he is. If he was around when this thread was thriving, he would have killed it. Thankfully, he wasnt.

Maybe in the real world, he's not so awful (evidence says otherwise) but here, he makes me want to fight. Nobody makes me want to fight. Its beyond weird. I almost feel bad, but I dont

Though since I never had a response to that job I applied for I probably did a shit job.
