I hope I'm posting this in the correct place.
My questions concern the practice of "blackballing".
My recent job search has been so unproductive that I recently discussed the issue with a job placement director at a local technical school. She informed me that it is possible that I may be being blackballed. I am interested in determining if this is true. I do not believe I have burned any bridges or left a job under negative circumstances but I would like to verify that I am not being blackballed for something of which I am unaware.
I am not currently employed.
What is the best method of determining whether or not you are being blackballed?
If you find that you are being blackballed, what is the best course of action?
Thanks in advance to any who reply with useful information.
