I am having a tuff time getting back into the field. One of my old jobs called me up and wanted me to come back but I refuse to. I am willing to work for low pay, have experience and a degree. I am also in the Army National Guard. I had a few interviews. I email, fax, snail mail places. I give them my resume, cover letter, and applications. I also send follow up letters (I sent my résumé not heard anything or I had interview not herd anything.) A few places send me a rejection letter (your credentials are great but not good for the position). I even send letters when they reject me (thanks for the letter but if something comes up please remember me). I had a few interviews and sent my resume/portfolio to a few places and never heard anything. In my state I am DCFS director and teacher qualified. However under state board of education I have only a substitute license. Also, I am an EMT-B. Also I have CPR with AED card. I even have a State Department of Health Food Sanitation card. I even got experience in the field. I see jobs posted all the time and apply. It got so bad that I have to apply to places further away from me. My old work found my résumé and begged me to come back. I refuse to work there. Other then they think I am spamming what am I doing wrong? I applied/interviews at some chains and private daycare. This is costing me lots of money in stamps, time, copies and other supplies. I applied at public schools, private schools, churches and even park districts. If you like to see my resume please let me know. The other day I went to a job/teacher fair at a chain daycare. I sent them my resume and brought a copy to the job fair. I was the first one there/interviewed. Is this bad or good? Can anyone help? If I posted this in the wrong spot I am sorry.
