I Did Not Get the Job...Again
Wednesday, January 19, 2011
What irony...my last blog was about working towards happiness. Ha ha...I'm not laughing.
I found out today that I did not get the job I really wanted. I interviewed for the position in late October and was supposed to hear "within 10 business days." Well, I FINALLY found out today that [surprise!] they hired someone with more experience than me. If I hear that one more time...well, if I hear that one more time I still won't have a job, will I?
The really sad part is that I've essentially been doing the job since October...without pay, but still they decided to choose someone else. If they know me and am happy with my work and won't hire me, what chance do I really have of getting hired by an office that only knows me by my resume? I've now been unemployed for twenty-one months. What good are goals if they're unattainable?
I'd say I am too sad to cry, but I just proved myself wrong. Can I give up yet? Can I run away from home? From my life? I know...pass the donuts, please! Just kidding (not really).
