I'm really trying to not lose my mojo, but my spirits were crushed yesterday when I didn't get a job that I was applying for. I was sought out on CareerBuilder.com by an agency that thought the job was perfect for my skill.
I put so much work into trying to land this position. I bought a new computer set-up a while back, a new suit and shoes, books on Excel spreadsheet, ...
I went for 2 interviews with this company: the first I met with 3 people and the second I met 13 and was there 2 1/2 hours.
I did my very best at the interview, let my sparkling personality shine through, and they seemed to really like me. The decision was b/n me and one other candidate. I can't believe I came so close.
So I went out last night and got trashed to celebrate.
I have a job now, but it is only a job to me and it is temp work. I'm trying to not let this set-back phase me, but I'm a little depressed about it. I work in the laboratory field and all these jobs seem to be going contract these days.
Sorry, I guess I just needed a shoulder to cry on.
