Rejected Again
Spring - luna_ann

I didn't get the job. Got the rejection letter today. They found someone with more experience.

IT PISSES ME OFF.

They said in the advert that the job would be ideal for a graduate with languages, which I am, then they hire someone with more experience?! What do I have to do?! Yeah, you can go ahead and tell me that you are 'confident' that I will find 'an excellent opportunity' to 'suit my skills' but that does bugger all for me! Why even bother having me back for a second interview if I just don't have enough experience? It feels like you screwed me over, even though that isn't really what you did. BUT HOW AM I MEANT TO GET ANY EXPERIENCE IF NOBODY WILL HIRE ME?!

I want to punch somebody right now. My only consolation is that it took you this long to tell me, which means that someone was fighting in my corner.

So, I'm skimming your previous posts, to see if I can find the reason you were in Lux. I'm really sorry, and I so hope you get a job soon, if you don't have one already. It's been a while since I was in that situation, but I do remember it. The most incredeible version was when my mum kept applying for Norad (Norwegian aid whatever) and frequently was told that she was the best applicant, but as she didn't have any aid experience (i.e never lived in Africa before), the job went to #2 on the list, a man of course, who had that experience. Gah. ("We don't like to hire women" would've been more honest). It really is Catch-22, I seriously don't know how they think you're supposed to get experience without a job. :-(

*hugs* You'll get there.

Nope, still jobless, but I have an interview on Thursday.

That's just ridiculous. It really is. Did she ever get to go out there? :/

*hugs back* Thank you.

No, she never went to Africa. :( She wasn't the only one suffering under this attitude, so thankfully they've changed.

I'll hold my thumbs, cross my fingers and send "job thoughts" to you on Thursday.

*hugs*

Thanks! I'm sorry she never went.
