I've been looking for a job for a while now. I've applied for a few but, frankly, I don't want to be a travelling carnival worker. Yes, that really is an option.
The other day I got an email stating that if I was still interested in a particular position I need to participate in some testing. Or, as they euphemistically put it, 'attend a prescreening exercise'. I knew I wouldn't really being seeing anyone who has any say in my being hired but it's still important to make a good impression. To me, it's also really important to feel like myself and not a corporate drone.
So I did the testing and it was not at all what I was expecting. I walked out of there feeling like I didn't do that well. It felt like the questions were designed for someone who had the knowledge that typically came from already working in that area. Oh well... And then I got a phone call to come in for an interview!!
Today I'm thankful that even when my faith fails me the Universe holds my hand.
