This Thursday morning started with another “Thank you for your application, however we have decided to move forward with other applicants” mail, the type of mail I am fairly sick of receiving! At least let me come for an interview people, so you can meet me and understand just how awesome I am!!
It is getting frustrating to not even be called for interviews, I am dying for something to do during the days just to activate my brain a bit, it feels like it’s melting away and deteriorating. I don’t really care that much as to what the job would be at this point, just anything would be awesome. However, the people who employ people for jobs have a serious attitude towards the whole over-qualified vs under-qualified issue and it seems to appear that for all the jobs out there I’m one of those two, never just qualified.
I know, all I can do is keep applying and applying and applying and one of these days there will be someone who wants to hire me and then I will be the happiest camper on this planet. Until then I will continue to try to fill my days so the lack of socializing with colleagues doesn’t become to apparent. Like today, I think that I will move some furniture around in my apartment, thinking to move my comfy chair from the living room to the bedroom and make a reading corner in there. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?
It doesn’t help that I’m living of my vacation pay, I have been trying to get in contact with the union for some unemployment benefits, it seems that their response time aren’t the quickest. So in order to make my vacation pay last for as long as possible I’m now living on the same level as the poor swedish students, this year for real not like last time when it was by choice. I wont complain, I have enough for food and I have generous friends, it would however be nice to be able to do some excursions and the like when the weather is amazing and I have all this free time. Maybe I should spend the day going through my stuff and see if I can sell any of it…
Oh well, guess the time for ranting is over! Thanks for listening and you have an awesome day!
