Compromise. Or is it admitting that I was wrong?
Maybe I am not suitable for HR. Maybe it is just not “meant to be”. I am not giving up. Until I am employed I will going.
I have another interview tomorrow. Is 8:30 am too early for an interview? It sounds wrong to me. The position is in a shop, it is entry level but contains the promise of scope for progression and overtime. It is not what I would have chosen but with apologies to Terry Hall I long to be “wasting my time…working for the rat race”.
Among the things that suck about being unemployed is having nothing more specific to aim for than get a job. And the biggest problem with having that as your only goal is that each “unfortunately your application…”, or worse: “you interviewed well, but…” is a failure. Imagine you have a job (I barely can) and you have this target, that target and every day/week/ year you fail…
So it ought to be counter intuitive to increase the volume of your potential failures…no wonder there are so many long term unemployed! Who can take this kind of rejection?
Another job I’ve applied to, I applied to because it has the same job title I did. This is immensely appealing and even though it is in an industry I know little about, I know that I can do it. It is all the parts of my previous job that I liked: Improving services, helping others to fulfill their ambitions, meeting and impressing people and sometimes burying the bonce in a spreadsheet.
Please, wish me luck on that one.
