I'm Highly Skilled Yet No One Will Hire Me!I'm such a failure! I've spent my life (it seems) running around in a big circle. I've spent a lifetime working my pants off and I really only have my experiences to show for it. Everything I've gained from all this suffering is inside my head. No matter how much I learn it's just never enough.
When I get a rare job interview, I try to show that I'm a competent valuable person that would be an asset to their company. They say that I have a good chance. I follow all the interviewing/job hunting rules. Still I never hear from them again!
I don't know which new programs I should learn next. I already know more than 20 and it hasn't helped me so far. No matter what ads I read, there's something I'm not good at and a skill I have yet to attain. I apply anyway since I must... Really, must I know how to do everything!!! If that is what is expected of me, then I'm going to need some funding. I'm willing to learn how to do everything; but, I can't afford all those classes.
I wish I could go to a magic genie and tell him/her all my skills, the genie would spit out job openings that I would actually be hired, all I would have to do is apply(I'm great at applying). Yeah, I know for merely $700 I could hire myself a professional career counselor to help me do just that. That is if I could afford this person.
I'm just so tired...I wish I could get paid to sleep. I'd make millions. I'd be willing to do some obscure non-conventional job, just as long as if was w/in 25 miles from where I live. I've considered personal assassin. I could do that. Great way to get out my aggressions. Haven't seen an ad for that though, or I'd apply.
My neck & shoulders are stiff...here I am complaining...instead of looking at the million websites out there w/a million jobs that I'm NOT QUALIFIED FOR SINCE I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO EVERYTHING!!!
Update: This is the very first story I wrote and how I found EP. I have since found work and am grateful that I don't have to be reminded daily how much I don't know.
