The thoughts and stories of someone who wants a job, but not just a job... a quality job!
So, I know everyone is in suspense about updates on my latest/only interview. Well, either wait longer or go watch the news cause I got nothing. Can you believe it!? I sat in an office, which took me an hour to commute to might I add, for one hour, blabbering away about considering the giving up of my soul to the damned company and not even an email back. Even after I wrote this lovely thank you email stating how appreciative I was for the opportunity, which wasn’t even a lie. Even if let’s say they did not receive my email I still believe they owe me a response one way or the other. I am feeling quite bitter about the whole thing to be honest. I understand they have a lot of candidates to interview and it takes time to get back to the ones that didn’t tickle their fancies, but then why sit with me for an hour? In any case, it is like they say about relationships better to find out early than to get married and have to hire a lawyer, go to court, and fight custody battles over little Tiffany and Daniel. Those names certainly weren’t hip enough. Is it me or are names getting more and more “different” as time goes on. I babysat for children named Aubrey and Garrett and their friends’ children Hunter and Paige. Don’t get me wrong Mike and Rachel were boring me too, but we must really put the limit on Jet or Apple-how are they ever going to be taken seriously in the real world, as if I know anything about that.
Wow, slightly off topic-back to the blog at hand. I have still been sending my resume to different places. I thought about spicing it up a bit- like my friends who are graphic designers do. I am not sure if that is the right way to get attention though. It would be fun to be like the people in Being John Malkovich who go into his head and actually become him for a period of time-but of course not John Malkovich rather some big kahuna CEO or even the small time manager who was assigned to look over 500 resumes most of which will never be read. What a pity. What do they want? Maybe I should really not focus on that though? I would like to know why the non-responders at my last/only interview didn’t want to hire me. I think it could help give me tips on other interviews. But maybe jobs really are like relationships. You don’t see me going around collecting old phone numbers from past boyfriends trying to figure out what I did wrong. Maybe it just has to be the right fit, like a puzzle piece. One thing I say can impress someone in one interview and insult someone in the next. Just like Teddy whose wet kisses might turn someone on one day but only managed to turn me running. Each to his own, as my mom always says.
In the meantime I am thinking about getting a part time job to pass the time more productively than sitting in my sweatpants and old high school t-shirts. I always feel badly about doing that though because then you have to face the boss in only a few months time, I hope, to let him know that you are off to big and better things than the local diner. That can’t make him feel any good. I could always go visit or help out when he needs on the weekend. Haha, nah, he’ll find some new high school kids who are proud to wear their t-shirts and who will proudly serve the hungry people of New Jersey while earning money for trips to the mall and the consumption of alcohol bought by one of them who is 17, but has a license that clearly says he is 27. They won’t notice.
