I’ve been unemployed since the end of October, and I’ve had one interview. I was so confident walking out of that interview. I was literally smiling in the parking lot going good job you got this! Unfortunately, never heard back!

By the way I’ve applied for 50+ accounts receivable/collections positions. I have spoken to 30+ recruiters!!!

Looking for job searching suggestions/ openings and just some friendly positive advice!

I need to lift my spirits up again!

Thank you in advance!

Are you a CPA?

Unfortunately, I am not!

Maybe aim higher than just AR/collections? Considered expanding your accounting skill set beyond AR/collections? Or do you not have a traditional Accounting background to begin with?

How did you get 30 interviews?! That's a lot

A recruiter for a company that I was excited to work for has ghosted on me (it’s been a week since they have given me updates). I’ve been told that things are delayed bc several key folks are on vacation atm.

How should I approach this situation? Several other companies I’m interviewing with is reaching final rounds, but tbh I’m not as interested in those roles. Plus I’m getting antsy being unemployed for several weeks since I was laid off.

*recent graduate* Whenever I ask an employer why I didn’t get the job or get to the second step in the interview process, they never respond. So, I’m assuming my lack of experience (I never did an internship in school🤦‍♀️ ) or portfolio is the problem.

Is this a red flag? - I interviewed for a financial analyst role with a company -

Had several rounds of interviews back in May, all signs pointed to that they all loved my resume and personality and I made a great impression. I was told that the role was on hold due to “beaucracy” but the hiring manager from the role has kept in touch. He then reached out to me yesterday asking if I’m still interested and want to move forward..no offer letter, just gauging my interest.

What would be your take?
