Day 39: Denied
Saturday, September 29, 2012
Late yesterday I got notified that I am no longer being considered for the job I applied for at the Oregon coast. I guess it was nice of them to let me know before the weekend. But there goes my escape plan.
I was literally the PERFECT candidate for this position. I have experience in EXACTLY all the responsibilities of the job, and it's an unusual skill set. I was willing to drop everything and relocate. It's so discouraging not to have even gotten to the interview process. That has happened a lot in the past two years (since I lost my full-time job), but I thought for sure I would at least get an interview for this one. If I can't get this job (for which I am uber-qualified), it's hard not to feel like I shouldn't just give up trying to get any job.
I know I am sort of feeling sorry for myself, and I am sure I will pick myself up again. But right now this just sucks.
