on looking for work part 40040

Looking for work is harder than working.
Looking for work is a stressful enterprise that no one should be subjected to
Looking for work in America of the new Millenium goes somewhat like this.
You apply by answering pages and pages of information.
Then, you have a quiz.
It's not just a quiz, however.
It's a series of questions that are determined by a machine whether you're the ideal candidate for the job.
You get graded accordingly.
You, next depending on your grade, get selected for an interview that could come tomorrow or half a year from now.
You might actually make it for an interview WOW
Now you sit in front of one two or three people, all very serious looking and with paper and pen ready to write down their comments as you go along.
You start after a while to figure out that they only write what they think is pertinent so if they write something that goes on their database.
At this point you should be able to start using key words that triggers their little brain neurons.
They then, thank you and call the next person.
They tell you that it could take up to a month for them to decide or even a second interview. You go home.
You're hopeful
You're dejected
You're bummed
You're confused because hey, you've worked before and you know you're good and you said everything that was supposed to be said
Maybe you have a chance
you fool
they're going to hire their friend's daughter
that was just to
1. keep them busy and justify their salaries
2. pretend that they actually hire people for their qualifications
I'd better get out there and start NETWORKING!!!!
or I'll never get a job
