I’ve started to turn to blatant honesty when talking to people who could possibly be in a position to hire me. Perhaps desperation isn’t the best plan. Then again, it seems to work better than the standard ‘please hire me’ speech. I just can’t tell, since none of it’s actually worked well enough to get me a job yet.

I’m severly disheartened after going to Wilderness Dreams today. At this rate I’ll be doing cashier at a grocery store and coming home to cry every night. If I’m doing retail, I’d like to at least be interested in the stuff I’m selling. Groceries to me is like the bottom of the barrel of retail work. I can do so much more, and it’s not like I’m hiding that fact. Nothing is working.

    Hopefully this will make you feel better.

    If the axiom that “misery loves company” holds let me tell you of my recent job struggles.

    If it makes you feel any better Jenny I live in Fredericton a town of about 50,000 people. I have submitted 31 resumes and/or applications in the past three weeks for telemarketing, retail, and restaurant postions. Out of those attempts I received only 3 callbacks for an interview. Of those three, two declined me and one was for a position I really wanted..an inbound sales reservation agent. (Not that I consider it a dream job or anything but still…) I am now taking a job at Pizza Delight as a cook. I feel that I can do better as well so I will cry every night too! hahaah

    So good luck and keep on trying! I will try to search for better employment in the meantime but eating for me is not optional! 🙂
