End to one misery?

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

The suit is at the cleaners, shoes are shined, and my best shirt is pressed. Why? Because I have a job interview (finally) tomorrow! I have to beat out a few others to get the job so I'm a little nervous. I even caught myself looking through the fridge after I got the call, but was able to recognize it before I did something I'd regret :-).

I'm nervous because I am extremely qualified for this position, but have bad luck in these situations. I don't know why. It just seems that whenever I'm a perfect fit, the employers always go with another candidate. The last time this happened was when I applied for a job with the Park Forest Village. The call after the fact went like this:

PFV: I'm sorry, but we decided to go with another candidate who is a little "greener"
ME: I'm sorry to hear that; was there anything in particular you didn't like about my qualifications?
PFV: Oh no, your qualifications, answers to the questions, and overall demenor were excellent; We just thought you were too good, and thought you would leave when something better came along.

This is what I get these days. It's very frustrating.

Anyway, we'll see how it goes. If I get the job, I'll post, if not, I won't mention it again
