That’s the way I have to feel after getting my second job rejection within the week. Both interviews, I thought, went well and I would have been a good fit in either position even though they were both different types of jobs. Trying to find a job in another line of work is proving to be difficult.
Edited to remove ramblings about job hunt
So after finding out about the rejection I thought we would go out for Mexican and couple of beers at Mad Mex. Happy hour of course, got to watch the budget. 😉 I had my Lumix LX3 with me and shot the bottles of hot sauce at the table. Just couldn’t pull myself to do a food shot. I know, it’s a crappy photo and I apologize for putting little effort into the shot. I’ll get my wits together tomorrow and all should be well.
Why did you remove your ramblings? I know exactly how you feel. It can be disheartening but a beer is always helpful. I hope you find something you want soon.
I was rambling on about how I don’t think people use the best judgement when hiring a candidate. They only seem to focus on one or two aspects instead of the overall abilities of the candidate. I’ve worked with people who probably met that one point when they got hired but they were some of the lousiest, laziest, dumbest people I have ever worked with. Of course, they were soon promoted. I didn’t meet 100% of the qualifications for the jobs I interviewed for but i probably was around 90%. The part I was lacking was industry specifics, something I could easily learn. Heck, give me a good manual and I could probably do surgery!
Sorry I meant why did you edit the post to remove them. I had read the post as it was before and I know exactly what you mean. I have worked with some ‘characters’ (nicest word I could think of) and I sometimes wonder how they manage to survive in life.
Sorry, I didn’t think anyone saw it before I edited. I just thought it was best if I didn’t look like I was being hostile. Ranting online is a delicate balance. You know, in case any prospective employers decide to Google me.
Ah you are wise!
