So, about a week ago I had a panel interview, and I'll admit, I feel like I totally fell flat on my ass with that one. My employment specialist seemed to disagree, because he felt I was able to answer some really tough questions pretty well. Either way, I was met with another one of those 'We found a better candidate emails.'
I just love those, because they just go to show just how useless applying for a job is these days, at least in the tech field. Because no matter how qualified you think you are, even if you're an exact match for the job, there's always 5 or 10 candidates who are better than you (Not really, employers can just get away with a lot more crap with those candidates).
This latest failure in my job search also proved something else: Connections don't mean shit either. I worked for someone at this place, who gave me a glowing reference for the position in question, and they're probably one of the few folks in this world who would even go that far, and in the end, it didn't matter. Not one bit.
So I guess I'll still be stuck at home a while longer going stir crazy because employers don't want to hire people without a driver's license, or any other excuse they can dream up but never admit with their generic emails. And telling me 'you'll find something' won't help either, given the fact that Florida is the land of no opportunity, unless you're one of Rick Scott's friends.
I just know I'm getting sick and tired of sitting at home and surfing the web seeing ads saying 'Billionaires tell 'Murica to prepare for financial collapse (That they'll cause)' or Sugar Daddy ads for college graduates with massive debt (I'm not making this up).
See you around,
