It certainly feels like you are on some kind of ‘Do Not Hire List’. I like applying for the same reposted jobs that I am overqualified for and know the future boss wants me. The HR goons definitely ignore any resume in which you are not currently employed. I just wish they had the balls to be honest about it. They are clearly lying when they keep posting the same job.
Amusing, how many of these would convince everyone this epidemic exists.

My ethics are being challenged because I find myself thinking a good business would be fake employment just to get a job. Basically pay someone to let you work for free just so you can say employed so that you can get a job. Just thinking… how can I get my foot in the door? Please comment if you have any idea’s.
