Job hunting has got to be the most tedious and thankless cause ever to befall the affairs of your HP. Hitting up the on-line job listings, writing and re-writing cover letters, receiving constant and conflicting advice regarding resume formatting, applying for several positions a week only to be greeted in return by a deafening silence from the other end--its no good. No good at all.
Potential employers, listen up! I know you're busy. So busy in fact, that you're looking to hire somebody to take some work off your shoulders. That's where I, and my fellow competitors come into play. But you know what? This tendency you have of ignoring us really sucks. I'm sure that communicating with us losers, those of us unworthy of becoming employed by glorious you, is probably the very last thing you care to do. But consider our welfare for a second. Even deign to place yourself in our shoes. How would you like it, if after two months of active job seeking, all you had to show for your efforts was two interviews, a condescending phone call with a recruiter who completing slammed your resume, two really soul-sucking 2 hour+ writing tests, and absolutely no solid leads? Would the prospect of continuing on in your quest begin to strike you as just a wee bit futile?
Add to that some truly dull winter weather; limited funds; and the fact that I said something to D that in the moment sounded perfectly romantic and honest that I now wish I hadn't said, and today is turning into something of a drag.
blah, blah, blah. Just had to get that off my chest. You may now return to your fabulously high paying, rewarding career that I will in no way ever feel capable of identifying with.
