I hate applying for jobs.
« on: March 26, 2007, 02:00:36 PM »
I mean... I really love writing, "Hire me for the love of God... I'm smarter than all of you even though I don't have a college degree" over and over again... followed within the week by calling and begging for interviews.  But it's getting to be a bit much.

Looking for a job when you have a job is fucking annoying.

That is all.

I know what you mean. What I hate worse about it all is when I have to dress up in a suit and tie. It sometimes takes me longer to get ready for the interview than the actual interview. I dread the day I have to go on another interview.

Maybe annoying, but looking for a job when you don't have one is even worse (IMO).

I understand, Benj chéri, what you're going through 'cause I do have a job, and will (perhaps) look for another one --- just in case!  My boss keeps calling me asking when I'm gonna go back, and I keep telling him the same damned thing now for a year...!  "At the end of the month!"

However, at the "end of the month" (any month) I just don't feel like working!  I'm on a sabbatical that may become another sabbatical this year, I guess.  But, I will look for some literary and/or artistic kinda job for sure.

Yea benji

I think you will be a great writer in both french and English.

Or perhaps a college professor. I like your sarcasm too so maybe a column in a newspaper like the chic from Sex and the City.

Holy shit.

It looks like that all paid off and stuff.

So, I was bitching because I was applying for numerous jobs within the same company... of course it was online, which I thought was an exercise in futitilty.

I just conducted a lovely telephonic interview with two very nice ladies who called me thanks to my qualifications and experience.  I spoke with them while I was on my way to work, ironically enough, and they're begging me to come in for an interview.

Oh yes.

And no one can say no to me once I interview.  Blue eyes+dimples+projection of competence= I can do no wrong ev-ar.  Tee hee.

Thanks, Al!

For once, French fluency seems to have worked in my favor. 

Oh, and all that crap I do at my job now.

I'm very pleasantly surprised and happy that they're beating down my proverbial door!

Je sais, mon cher Val... mais il veut me payer plus d'argent pour le parler!

C'est mortel!   ;D

I just realized that if hired, I'd be working for a European-owned company that provides travel insurance... which helps to explain the emphais on languages.

Whoo hoo!
