Okay. I’m gonna go and rant about how frustrated I am about not finding a job. I AM SO FREAKING FRUSTRATED.
First, I don’t know what to do to make me stand out even more. I don’t even get called to an interview and yet, I match all the descriptions in the job listing.
That’s what’s frustrating. Each day goes by and I keep wondering if I’ll ever move out of my parents’ house and be on my own.
I want a job not only to fulfill a childhood dream, but I want a job so I could move out and move back near my friends. Being isolated 6 hours away doesn’t do me any good.
And no I’m not impatient, this will be my second year straight of applying to jobs and I haven’t really gotten any calls. I was so damn close with the SBT job but that slipped through my fingers and they hired someone else last minute.
I apologize for a whiney post, but I really can’t take it anymore. I apply to about 3-5 jobs daily/weekly and I don’t even get a call. I want to do something with my life but if I just sit around and do nothing that doesn’t really motivate me much. I even compare myself to my classmates that are hired… how in the world did they land the job and I didn’t? What don’t I have that they do? Experience probably… but even then the most common rejection note I get is that my background is impressive but I don’t match the company image!! What the hell! Don’t they know designers are supposed to be known to be adaptable to change and other styles?? Isn’t my work varied enough that I do have my own style as well as a clean style??
My goal was the end of the summer and I almost made that goal, but now my other goal is to find a job by Thanksgiving. I want nothing more right now than to move out and finally be on my own.
