work: I think I'm pouting

Just called somebody in Admissions, trying to dig up a little dirt on what's going on with their new hire. They're in second round interviews.

I didn't even get an interview. Half of me is offended, the other half is wondering how I can suck so much that I didn't even merit an interview.

Maybe this is a sign. Wayne has a few positions that just went up that sound really great. I guess I'm putting in for them.

Dude, I know what it's like to see that a job is filled and you didn't even get an interview.

I will tell you what everyone tells me to make me feel better--everything happens for a reason, and not getting this means you're destined for something else.

That comforts me somewhat, but I think it's perfectly OK to be bitter too. :)

Just think, there are 100 qualified people for every job. I myself have sorted through stacks of resumes and it becomes random at some point. "Oh, I like eating where he worked..." "This lady has awesome grammar," etc. Whereas all things being equal, the cheap-ass paper stocks go first. :-P

Keep applying, baby. One's bound to investigate you.

I hear that. I can't even get an interview around here. I did get ONE call back (to report that I'm overqualified) but sitll no luck. It seems a Master's degree is a job repellent.

Bum boo bum. There's a reason for everything...but I'm certain those aren't the words for right now.

Wishin' you the best. KEEP THE FAITH!

i'm frustrated myself. however, i'm frustrated because I have a list of places to take my resume to but I can't fuckin find the places because one is on NE 20th st, which sounds easy but really there's a NW 20th st, SW 20th, etc. I have no idea where anything is unless it's on Archer Rd., Newberry Rd., 13th st (Martin Luther King BLVD), University Ave, or Main St. Notice how the roads I know don't contain numbers usually??? I'm so frustrated! AND we don't have a phone book so I have to look up places online and mapquest wasn't working earlier! ok, i'm done now.
I'm sure you'll find something great. We had a great education and you have alot of good experience and know people. Keep me updated hon.
