Trying to find a job is hard on its own, now trying to find a job in a Corona Virus world is even harder.
I have been applying to jobs for about two weeks now. I updated my resume and made it look really pretty and what now. I went on indeed and started shooting it at some job postings.
It wasn’t until a couple days ago that Indeed has this new feature that tells you how many people have applied to the same position you did. At first I thought this was a good idea, it would let me know how many people I was up against, until I saw the number.
The thing is that it only lets you see how many people have applied after you have applied. So I applied to some posting and then went back to check on the status. Some of them said 10-100 applicants which is really vague, it could be 15 or it could be 95 they could have been more specific.
But when I checked another posting I had applied to, it had said 100+ applicants. I was surprised that so many people are applying to the same job. I was even more surprised when I got a call from the company saying they wanted to set up an interview.
I low-key felt good that I was called for an interview, I mean out of 100+ people the odds are good. Nevertheless, who ever I do end up interviewing along side with could have more qualifications than I do. This year alone I have been to several interviews and not gotten called back, hopefully its not me that is the issue and its that they found some one better.
Be that as it may, I hope I get this next job, and I hope I like it. I really need a full time job right now.
