It’s very discouraging to continuously receive these rejection emails. With 9 years of supply chain experience, I am not sure why I would not be able to at least get an interview for entry level roles that require no experience. Not just this one pictured but others as well. I’ve applied to maybe 60 positions since May, both mid level and “entry” and no interviews. I’ve had my resume professionally re-written twice. Not sure where the disconnect is. Anyone else going through this same thing?

Honestly, if I see someone has manager level experience and I’m hiring for entry level, I won’t interview because they probably want more than I’m budgeted for. It won’t result in a hire so why waste everyone’s time?

I went through the same thing. I think it’s about quantity of applications you put in. We don’t know what goes into the hiring decisions, and if a company is good, they likely have an internal candidate that is being considered or in line. Then there are postings that stay up just because they want a pool of resumes to reach out to when they need someone. Just keep applying. Apply everywhere. Take all interviews. You’ll find the job you’re looking for, maybe not even something you were expecting. I laughed out loud and found it so refreshingly honest when a company sent an email back, and the subject line was “rejection letter”. Felt like it was about darned time.

Hello friend, I went through the same thing, I was 1 year without being able to get anything in the supply chain, and a job coach advised me to hire a LinkedIn resume and profile optimization service, and voila, in less than a month I had 3 interviews. Have you tried using this kind of service? Don't give up, I wish you luck.

Not the original commenter but the service they were referring to is LinkedIn and resume writing. Agencies and freelancers both offer this service. Here's some examples from Upwork: https://www.upwork.com/ab/profiles/search/?q=resume%20&user_pref=2

Last Wednesday 8/3, I had my final interview with oracle. They are hiring 2 people for role and the hiring manager stated she had more interviews next week and was looking to make a decision by the end of the next week but didn’t specify I’d hear back at the end of next week. It’s now Friday 8/12, is it okay to reach out to the recruiter today for follow up or should I wait until Monday?

They apologized since it didn’t make it into their calendar and the spot was taken although I thought that spot was for me & I waited for the calendar invite despite it not being sent. Rescheduling for the 2nd time wasn’t helpful either even with an invite. Seems strange.
