What kind of world is it that I live in that people don't recognize me for what I am: a skilled, fairly well educated individual in a desparate situation? Why can I not get a job? Fuck, why the hell can't I even get an interview?
It's now been about a full year since I last had a job interview, or even a call back about a job. People are beginning to suggest that I go and work at Rite Aid or at my sister-in-law's company. While neither are bad suggestions for a desparate person, I refuse because I still have some dignity left. I continue to apply for the jobs for which I believe I'm qualified: Software development, support, and/or quality assurance engineering positions. But not only do I not get calls about these positions, I don't even get rejection letters any more. Why the fuck not?
Does this mean I'm not good enough to waste 37 cents on to tell me I'm not good enough?
