So I'm Probably Not Suited To Be A Sales Consultant....

About six hours ago, gave the worst interview performance to date. I look good on paper (resumes) but not in person. Could just see the poor (well, okay...quite wealthy, actually) guy wishing there was a red "Dismiss" button under the conference table. He kept bringing up such excellent points regarding sales and the way in the past, sales consultants often prejudged those who came in to buy...and I wanted to convey details regarding my unique forte in this aspect of life to NOT prejudge people...but I could see he had already sussed out any reasons why just by seeing me in person. No amount of dyeing hair darker, glossing and straightening, putting on makeup and nice clothing and mannerisms could disguise my features enough to translate to "could sell lots of expensive items" (though I have in the past...after someone else chose to see past my looks...and was put in another position soon after a better looking person could be obtained....) Of course, the "psychology major with intent to become a counselor" on my resume should have been a huge red flag to the lady who had sent me the interview invitation; however, I am the one to assume responsibility for my flop. If only there had been some way to prevent myself from spending time getting ready, driving someplace forty-five minutes away with only $1.40 and about one/fourth tank of gas.

Ah well. Suppose student loans and a "real" job can wait a while longer. I don't know how other people like me do it, but have read many stories of how they held multiple mismatching jobs to help them finally attain their original goals, and that is what I intend to do.
