The Search for a Job
I've decided that I hate job searching more than anything else in the world. I hate a lot of things that are obnoxious, but I hate that the most. It tops my hatred for apartment shopping.
I am just not good at the being fake and selling yourself part. I am who I am, and I am good at whatever you put me to do, so why waste my time if you don't want me? I have had so many interviews and gone into the city and wasted my minutes on my cellphone, to have these people just waste my time! It is SO annoying --and it costs money!
Between the round trip train ticket to the city $24, any sort of subway $2 each way, parking at the train station $5.... and then doing that multiple times, and then to just go there for like 15-20 minutes?! UGH.
For instance, today I went to this magazine in the city. Nice place, nice office, cool company.... but what happened to the HR woman? Why was she a complete nasty bitch? I was literally there for 10 minutes at the MOST. AT THE MOST. I woke up at 6am to be in the city by 930, walked in the FREEZING cold just about 3 miles....for 10 MINUTES?!?!?!?!?
If the place wasn't as nice and I didn't actually want to work there I would have been like thats?!
I think I have applied to every job in sales/marketing/account management in my area and now I am getting down to the last dollars that I have and unemployment has yet to come in yet since their phone wait was insanely long.
So I really don't know what to think of everything.... I have some jobs I might be able to get off the books and then school starts next week! Ahhhhhh. And all I really want to do is just go on vacation........
Once unemployment kicks in I will feel a little bit better because at least then I can pay my rent.
