|You raise an age-old question, and the most obvious and unfortunate reason for the lack of callbacks is that some companies still turn their backs on the law and on some of the most valuable resources in the labor market. However, setting such companies aside, which is exactly where they belong, there are plenty of companies that would be interested in a person with your background. |
The first step is to review your resume in terms of content and format. It should clearly spell out your expertise and demonstrate that your career is still moving upward. It should also include your knowledge of software programs commonly used in most offices today. If your skills are thin in this area, you should take some classes.
One of the best ways to get your resume to the top of the pile is to be referred to a company by someone with a connection. This means you should work your network and contact everyone in it. You should also continue to build your network by joining groups and clubs, volunteering in the community, and taking classes. These steps can help you find a job and a lot more.
