    Too Much Competition In The Marketplace:

    I have emails from employers where the employers turned me down for work because they told me that they had decided to ‘pursue other candidates’ without even seeing my face or calling me in for an interview thereby wasting my time in filling out the applications in the first place. I actually used to have an email from a college recruiter that told me that I had to have a real job in order to get one at a college and this was right here in OC, I went to a job fair hosted by Todd Spitzer a few weeks ago where they said in the paper that they had 51 employers that had thousands of jobs open at the Hyatt Regency in Irvine where the host did not even show up for the event and the table for OC was devoid of any reps for OC (the table was empty), I was there for about an hour to an hour and a half and I even took a list of the employers with me after I left and applied online for many of the employers that were there at that job fair and I have yet to hear from any of them so at this point I am wondering what they are doing with my info on my resume. I have been to many job fairs and have never recieved any jobs from any of them, I’m filling out applications on a daily basis and still get nothing but rejection letters and form mails from them. So they must be selling my info for advertising purposes or some other wierd reasoning, but that’s just speculation on my behalf, that’s the only thing I can suggest, and you said yourself that there have been alot of other candidates that are being considered, I will admit that I don’t have a consistant record but that is not my fault because I do my research and the economy is not in good shape. Yes I will admit there is some frustration and anger in my reasoning, but I suppose that it can be justified to a certain extent but it’s not aimed at you. A few years ago I even went to an EDD rep to have my resume redone and the person there asssited me with it and told me “in the process that many of these employers have their synopsises for thier job postings set way too high”, anywhere where it states as to how many years experience they are wanting that it says as much as “5 or more or as much as 10 years experience” and that is way too high, nobody that I know of has that much experience on most jobs, so why do they do things like that when it’s just plain wrong? It’s as if they don’t want anyone at all even when they are advertising. I have been passed over for jobs that I am qualified for.

    ** One employer that I went into pulled a stack of applications from under the desk that was at least 300 applications thick, how are you supposed to get hired when they can’t even hire one person out of 300 applications. I have 173+ applications filled out in my emails and no contacts.

    Santa Ana is the out of order toilet bowl of OC….the only solution is to fumigate, sanitize, and flush repeatedly…

  • Uh, can I go overdrawn on the Visa card and then tell the bank to take a flying leap.

  • After more than three years of combat operations, Iraq announced Saturday that the fight against the Islamic State group is over after the country’s security forces drove the extremists from all of the territory they once held. Iraqi and American officials warned, however, that key challenges remain despite the military victory.

    Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi formally announced the victory in an address to the nation aired on Iraqi state television Saturday evening.

    “Honorable Iraqis, your land has been completely liberated,” he said. “The liberation dream has become a reality. We achieved victory in difficult circumstances and with God’s help, the steadfastness of our people and the bravery of our heroic forces we prevailed.”

    “The flag of Iraq is flying high today over all Iraqi territory and at the farthest point on the border,” he added, standing before the most senior members of Iraq’s security forces.

    Following al-Abadi’s remarks, his office declared a public holiday Sunday in celebration of the victory, according to an official statement from the prime minister’s office.

    That’s because you supplied the weapons to them then sent the troopa to burn the place to the ground.

    So they can afford $1.5M, $1.35M and $2.7M pay increases for various classes of city workers and even fund CIVIL immigration attorneys for illegal foreign residents while running a $600,000 deficit for 2017 which is projected to escalate sharply for each subsequent year for the next 3 years?

    My guess is that the majority of SA city workers live outside the city limits.

    Imagine if a business behaved so recklessly in the management of it’s financial operations? lol. It would be forced into Chapter 13 quicker than a rattlesnake bite.

    I won’t shop in Santa Ana or Westminster any longer. In good conscience I can’t support cities that treat their residents with such disrespect.

      “I won’t shop in Santa Ana or Westminster any longer.”

      If you’re really an LF old timer, I don’t imagine you’re doing that much anyway.

      • LFOldTimer

        Well, every so often I have to reup my supply of Fixodent and I’m a sucker for specials on prune juice.

        But it’s not how much I buy, Rivett. It’s the principle of the thing that matters.

        Now go out and make your mark in the world, young buck. Join the rat race. Be a good consumer and max out the limit on your Visa.

        Heed the advice of GW Bush. “Go shopping”.
