On Monday I found a job I was very interested in on an employment web site. In order to apply for the position, you had to go to the employer’s corporate web site. I had applied for another position at this company a year or so ago and so I already had a user name and password to access their site.
My usual password did not work so I hit the button which would send a temporary password to my email. I then got an error message indicating there was . . . well . . an error . . . and I should contact the System Administrator. I tried this three more times with the same result and then decided to come back to it later.
I logged onto my email a little while later and I had four emails with four different temporary passwords. Oops! So I then tried all of those four passwords and I still was unable to log on. I waited until later that night and tried again and had no luck.
I sent an email to their Technical Support team asking for help. The next morning I got an email from a real-live person (a real oddity in the job search process) who offered to assist me if I would call her. I did and after a few attempts, we were able to get me logged on. I thanked her and we hung up.
I continued on the corporate web site and searched for the job I had found on the employment web site. The job was not there. I went back to the employment web site, found the job and clicked on “Apply Now” and it took me to the corporate web site and the job posting. Once again, I clicked on “Apply” and now I received a message saying this job was no longer available. According to the employment site posting, it had just been posted two days ago!
So frustrating. Once again, a lot of work with no positive result. The job search is not easy, it is not fun. It’s a full-time job that I can’t quit.
