BEST FUCKING POST EVER
It’s like you’re screaming and no one can hear
You almost feel ashamed that someone could be that important
That without them you feel like nothing
No one will ever understand how much it hurts
You feel hopeless
Like nothing can save you
But when it’s over and it’s gone
You almost wish that you could have all that bad stuff back
So that you could have the good1 year ago
I don’t know why, but everytime before i have a job/internship interview, I always contemplate not showing up.
I go through what would happen: I decide not to go—> Interviewer gets pissed that I don’t show up—> I don’t care—> I apply for more jobs—> I arrange for a time to get interviewed—> I don’t show up
I don’t know why I think like this. I always do go to the interviews but I always have that moment of hesitation: “Should I or shouldn’t I?” I think I have this fear of not knowing how to respond to a question. Or that I’ll give a stupid response and want to kick myself after the interview.
Usually I worry for no reason. The interviews usually go well enough. Even if I didn’t end up getting the job, I know that it wasn’t because I totally blew the interview. It’s just that there are more qualified people than me.
Which is another thing! How can people expect you to have experience if no one will give you a job because of your lack of experience?? You have to start somewhere right? That is why you must be humble and accept whatever comes your way. You can always work your way up.
I remember this woman telling me that she used to be a stay-at-home mom but after all her kids left home, she had nothing to do. She had previous experience in retail and customer service so she took a job answering phones for some company. Fast forward however many years, and now she’s the VP at some bank. She started out at the bottom and worked her way up to the top. She started off getting paid like $6/hr. Inspiring.
The lady I interviewed with today told me about her husband who got his masters in counseling and wanted to be an MFT. He’s been looking for jobs but no one will hire him because his level of education is much higher than his level of experience. In grad school he only did the bare minimum and now no one will hire him. They expect that he’ll be ok and someone else will hire him because he has a high level of education.
I don’t want that. I know that experience is everything. School doesn’t teach you how to BE something. That is something you have to learn on your own through experience.
Just spewing out some thoughts because I don’t want to study for my final.1 year ago
