I have not had a full time job in 3 years. For 3 years I have gone on countless interviews, I have been to resume writing workshops, I have submitted my resume more than 3,000 times, I have spent HOURS searching ads, I have gone to several work force/temporary agencies for help (currently I'm active with 3 companies), and I have been turned down every single time.
I have gone on a handful of interviews where I nailed it. I said all the right things, the position was in my league, the interviewer was responsive, and I had all the qualifications they were looking for. You always know when you spanked it or totally dropped the ball. You just know.
This last interview was one of those times where I did everything perfect! I was confident when I walked in and I was confident walking out that I would be getting a call back. Then the dreaded email arrived this morning explaining they "picked someone else for the position and would keep my resume on file".
WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? It isn't fair! I'm tired of trying so damn hard!
