Only read first page, not sure if someone else stated the same...


I wouldn't hire someone who previously didn't get hired, then blasted the company about it online.


"I would love to work for your company, cuz I'm proffesional!"

"Ooooooohhhh gaaawd you SUCK, cause I didn't get it!"



Now I see why companies check out facebook/myspace/twatter, n .

Sorry to hear about your job situation, when we were a small company we didnt have a HR dept. so i had to conduct the interviews myself, in my years of doing this i have encountered a few people in the same situation as you are right now, usually the problem is not "YOU".... the problem is other candidates trying to get the same job you applied for.

So far 4 people have called me after they found out that the position was given to another person instead of them and i gladly asked them to come and discuss the details of my selection process.

Most of the time, i pull out their resume and the other candidate's resume side by side and ask him to read it and use a green pen to check whenever he saw a "skill" or "experience" that was not on his resume. Most people go through the 4th or 5th checkpoints and give up. You see in our minds we are always doing the best that we can do but the truth is that they are many more capable people than we are and more suited for a certain position than we think we are, there is nothing about race, age or discrimination when it comes to hiring, most companies are looking for productive people who can be integrated into the company without having to invest too much time in training that potential candidate, in oder words..... the most skills & experience you have that is directly related to the position you are applying for, the better the chances you have of possible getting hired.

If you still think that their decision was mainly based on the color of your skin, then ask to speak to the HR manager and kindly ask him/her if you can see the resume of the guy that got the position you wanted, i am sure you will understand their decision after this process.

I know the economy sucks right now and job hunt and interviews are frustrating but maybe it's time to pick up some new skills that you dont have during this time in order to make your resume stand out from the pile of other resumes laying around.

Also, if your application was anything like your post, then I'm surprised that you even had an interview...

Seriously though, what happened? You didn't actually tell us anything. Except that you didn't get a job that you wanted.
Dont hate... Appreciate

Last I checked this is just a "Blog". What's up up with all these "wanna be" grammer school teachers?! Get on a Kindergarden level forum and critique each other until your blue in the face if you "haters" got nothing better to do.

On a serious note: This issue is serious to me. And for those of you who can't relate, good for you. Maybe oneday when you become discriminated against you will take to a more sympathetic point of view. Until then life must be just green for you at the moment. Well that's great, but don't hate! Remember life is cyclical.

The facts of why I am so adamant on this. First of all, I get it. I understand that any employer has the right to choose hire or not hire whoever whom he feels is right and fit for a job. I'm not on here because I'm bitter that I didn't get hired for the record. Only because I feel I never got an honest decent fair shot.

Here's my true story: Like all of you, I really love HONDA. I mean I literally do. Yeah you could call me crazy obsessed whatever. It's my passion. Since I was a kid I dreamed of oneday working for Honda. so I took this Job opputunity and interview very seriously. I always imagined Honda environment to be as honorable as the brand and legacy itself. I was shock to find otherwise.

Here's what happened.

On my 2nd and 3rd interview, I arrive at 9:45am each time. And patiently wait for my interview which is at 10:00am. The manager then nonchalantly arrives 30 to 45 minutes late to interview. To me it shows a lack of professionalism. These are my impressions, but okay overlook this and carry forward. I expect what happens next to be an experience to embrace. Example I wanted to learn more about the company etc. What I see and hear is quite opposite. He (the manager) talks irrevellant off subject comments the whole time. I was so disappointed. I mean I looked up to this place. He was so blunt when he said he had hired this girl off the street because of her "looks". I was shocked! How unprofessional! I know it's not illegal to hire whoever he wants but come on! I'm here for an interview. Please be respectable. Then he does't want to hear what I can bring to this business. My assets, my valuable endless knoweledge and never ending constant study into the latest news and technology coming from Japan's Honda home.

Yes I know I'm young. I lack experience. the truth is he didn't have to hire me. But come on, I never even was given a fair chance from the word GO!

Welcome to the real world, sunshine. Hiring managers almost always show up late. Why? Because they can...and they wanna see if you stick it out or leave. So if you stayed, you passed the 1st test. The rest of it, well, I don't know but you up somewhere lol

I don't think you have a case. Just suck it up and move on.

Also, I'm pretty sure everyone here has been discriminated against in one form or another.
