Drives me I insane. I’ve been in the market for a new job since October while working somewhere temporary in the meantime. I’ve been applying for everything from sales/marketing to receptionist and clerical. I’ve been VERY diligent about my job search and have applied to over 100 places in 4-5 different ways. But, it’s a hard time to switch career paths. I’ve gotten interviews but either:
- It’s some bullshit “thrown together in a day” firm that wants me to sell perfume door to door in Philadelphia.
- They won’t give me a straight answer on pay and it always comes down to being based either solely on commission or its 60+ hours a week for basically, $9/hour.
- It’s a scam.
Needless to say, I’m beyond frustrated. I’m a great employee; I learn fast, work hard, and show up. My resume is pretty good and I have a lot of experience in a lot of areas, especially for my age.
Yet, it’s a bitch to find a job. It seems everyone is running scams or some kind of hustle. I’m ready to flip shit. There’s so many bad employees out there that knowing I am a good one just makes this harder. Mentally, that is. If one person would give me a chance I would surprise them. But there are thousands of people looking for jobs and we all have to wade through the bullshit. Ugh.
FUCK JOB HUNTING.
That is all….
