no offers for 8+months for me and my wife, and within one day, we received 3 offers

7 months ago

|

2 for me, one for my wife and both of us got offers from the ones we absolutely wanted. It is the highest paying roles we have ever had i cant believe it. we spent all day saying is this a dream i dont want to wake up ​ my wife recently moved here from HK too so she was really worried that they wouldnt hire her having no local experience and then she lands the most perfect job ​ dont give up guys i had lost all hope but my outlook and mindset changed before this i learned to accept that this is a test and we will get through it i hope that everything goes well at work on monday we have both signed our contracts and are super excited. its just insane how it happened all in the same day. im not a person of faith but ill admit i prayed that things would get better im so glad they did

    Yup. I second this. Good things happen to those who wait. A bit about me. Graduated undergrad in 2014 have been underemployed since, until receiving an offer today that’s a role worth my education and experience. Took 7 years but...I finally have a job worth my worth.

    We moved to the US after Hurricane Maria. Shit was dark! I remember that we had been here for a month and my fiancée and I were crashing in a living room. We would cry every single day! It was just depressing. Then it came the point when we said "if by the end of the month we don't receive an offer we'll go back home" and man, we both got offers on that last day! After that we could get our own place and started to move around and upwards. I still remember that, call it whatever you want, I call it a blessing.

      thank you! honestly, all i can say is, sometimes i tweak my resume, but not a lot to be honest i doubt it was the reason for the job. but i did notice the past few weeks, i hit breaking point, being so worried and stressed, eventually i just became numb to it and started to be happy. like a "fuck it, whatever, when i get one, ill get one!" and then i started to enjoy the days more too-before i couldnt even do things i enjoy because i constantly would think about the job situation. my partner also started being happier because she saw me happier. i doubt that had an impact but i do believe that positive energy brings positive things! but in terms of approach, not really! i really just kept at it and kept doing the only thing i knew how to do, apply apply apply. we honestly must have applied to 1500 jobs combined (the bulk coming from me as there were more jobs in my field so id say 65/35% split)

    I'm incredibly happy for you, this gives me quite a bit of hope being a laid-off chef with a useless psych degree. Before the pandemic, I had an interview with a different company I was really looking forward to working with. A week later I dislocate my kneecap, tear the surrounding ligaments, and lose employment. No insurance. It's been over a year since I've had work, I've had my resume, interviewing, and conduct screened, tailored, and cleared. No issues with mobility. 5 interviews later and nothing, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't suicidal. But hey! Nothing is forever, if you can do it, we can do it. Wishing you a happy and successful future.

    Congratulations! When it rains, it pours! I was offered two jobs at 2 different companies on the same exact day after a job search a few years ago. Same exact salary, too. I went with my gut because I got a great feeling from one place, and got a kind of weird vibe from the other. Still there, so it was definitely the right decision.
