It feels like my job hunt is just not going anywhere, and I'm the only one to blame. I've scoured the usual resources, i.e. job websites and want ads, and so far I've come up relatively empty handed having only gotten 2 interviews. I feel so inept at this whole process that it just makes me want to give up.
When I last talked about my life, I wrote about an interview with a certain firm. That very firm wrote me back within a matter of days with my very own Dear John letter. While I didn't necessarily want the job, it was certainly disheartening to receive a response like that for a job I felt I'd interviewed so well for. I'm not heartbroken over the whole thing, just a little brought down by it all.
All of this rejection has me thinking about life as one massive series of acceptances and rejections. The menagerie of it all goes into every facet of our lives: socially, professionally, romantically, educationally, and metaphysically. In this, I can't lose hope because of the simple fact that I can't be refused and rejected forever.
I'm just going to keep plugging along until I find some place that will recognize me for the talents I have. Until then, I have to keep my head above water.
