I Did Not Get the Job...Again

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

What 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).

    I am sorry for you. I know you are diappointed. Keep on keeping on and don't give up. There is some ad for some athletic stuff and it says something like:

    Be tough...only tougher
    Be strong...only stronger
    Be you...only better

    You can be the best you and that is what you are striving for. The rest you can't control. You can do your best, hope, pray, wait and in the meantime, you can still live your best life. I am not belittling you feelings of disappointment. I say feel it. Let yourself feel it, then let it go and move forward towards what IS there for you! You do have VALUE and are a very CAPABLE and DILIGENT person! You will find the right fit for you.

    Keep on keeping on!
    You're stronger than you think
    You're tougher than you think
    You're more disciplined than you think
    You have it in you to live your dreams and reach your goals!
    That's not a slogan, it's the truth. emoticon

    Sim dealt with that too and got so frustrated with the line, "Someone more experience." How do YOU get experience then? At least you have your internship that is hopefully providing you with the EXPERIENCE a not-far-in-the-future employer will bel ooking for! :)

    I'm sorry. No perfect words for you. Just know that the perfect job is out there and you can't give up or stop believing in yourself!
    Good luck!
