Didn't get that job...

January 11th, 2011 at 05:02 am

Remember that 2nd job I applied for at the company where I temped for 3 months? I just got a form letter emailed to me saying they found someone better qualified. I had been fairly confident after my phone interview that they'd call me in for an in-person interview. Wow. Proven wrong again. I'm very disappointed, and there's a part of me that can't believe I find myself in this same situation again. The situation called U-n-e-m-p-l-o-y-e-d. I'm highly educated, smart and very good at what I do. It's really not sustainable.

Kinda feel like a lost lamb.

    Geesh. I am so sorry to hear that. I totally get it. There are many times when I feel like I've done everything "right"-- went to a prestigious college, graduated with straights As, interned, built a portfolio, and it got me nothing. I worry about America's future. The dream used to be built on work hard, get ahead. Now you can work hard and get nowhere.

    Something better has to come along for you.

    (((HUGS))) Don't despair. Think of this as a temporary set back and keep applying for jobs. I am in a similar situation. I am over 50, over qualified, over educated, and I NEED to work. I have been unemployed for three years and our savings are dwindling down. I have applied for all types of jobs and not one interview as of yet. I search indeed.com everyday and apply for any jobs I am remotely qualified for, I network and tell everyone I come in contact with that I am looking for a job. I do have some health issues that prevent me from doing some types of work but I am able minded and able bodied. Never give up, never, never give up.Smile

    I'm so sorry. I would be happy to send you a link to the work-from-home situation I mentioned the last time you were unemployed, but can't find a way to send a private message to you. It doesn't pay very much at all, but I can assure you that it is 100% legit and the hours are extremely flexible so would not interfere with your hunt for a "real" job. I guess you could look at it as a "better than nothing temporary situation" ... if you're interested let me know & I'll make more effort to figure out how to send a PM.

    I'm so sorry to hear this didn't work out. {{{hugs}}}

    Thanks so much, scfr, but i think i'll just keep at the online surveys I do, which are basically limitless as far as how much time you want to put into it. I was making $50 a month doing them last year without too much trouble; I think i'll try for $75 a month...that would take care of my electric bill...
