Can a misspelled name on one’s social security hurt their chances of getting a job? I don’t know how it happened but my parents never got me a replacement with my correct name spelled; now that I’m an adult applying for work I’m wondering if that’s part - or fully - the reason why I haven’t been hired yet

There is some missing context here. Are you applying for your first job ever that requires a background check? Have you ever gotten hired and turned away after the background check? Have you ever been in a position where you had to provide your SSN before getting an interview?

Yes, I’m applying to my first job (full and part time). Some require a background check but I assume all employers do that? I haven’t done one, neither have I been hired yet, and no, I’ve never had to provide my SSN before getting an interview

I’m not sure that this would keep you from getting a job

I have the same issue. The spelling on My birth certificate is different than my social security card. So when I applied for a Texas license they made me use my birth certificate name which I don’t use. It’s kinda annoying that my mom couldn’t make up her mind about the spelling of my name lol

I forgot to mention. It will not affect you getting a job. It’s probably just the market.

Hey everyone please consider this as my Hail Mary.
My notice period got over a month ago.
I resigned from the service based company i was working in because at the time I had an offer. They later mentioned that the offer is contingent on the fact that I get an early release from the 90 days NP, which didn't happen and they ghosted me.
I feel utterly helpless. I have been applying and getting shortlisted almost everywhere but nothing has panned out.
PLS HELP ME.

So annoyed, after 2 interview (2weeks) I am here waiting on a offer and then this company said I have to do another one "last one" (when I clearly said, more then 2 interviews plus the recruiter one was a turn off for me)

Happy Halloween! Hope everyone stays safe today. It has been two months since my last role at a law firm. I had only gotten one interview or no callbacks since then.

I am unsure if my resume is wrong in terms of not tailoring my resume or working for multiple law firms for a few months due to being hired through a recruiting agency.

What should I do to get more callbacks/interviews? Should I reach out to HR/Recruiter directly? Should I get a paralegal cert? Should I do the programs on Forage?
