Job seeking

If you are reading this, you probably also want a new job. Many people will tell you how it is easy, simple and so fast if you will doing things under some rules, and I will write you the truth. Its not easy, not simple and you can try to make things and to think about it in any possible way it wouldn´t be easy. Yes you can think in possitive way, I also tryed it. I am still trying it. I went on many job interview with positive mind, I learned everything possible about that firm where I went, I was checking the possible questions which can searcher give to you and have answers. I have also education on those positions, also practice, I took nice dress and of course nothing helped me. So I was on many, many bad job interviews and met there horrible people and here they are:

1. Sloth

Yes, sloth as an animal. If you already saw film Zootopia you saw also that terribly slow sloth. He was ok, he was slow but fine. But now to that slowly sloth add also the biggest boredom ever. It was the most horrible combination. And this bored sloth lead the job interview where I came. Still have that idea in mind and this person, this person, told me: "we want somebody excited for this job. We want somebody who will work each day with enthusiasm." Still in shock...

2. Why you want to work here?

Many times you are not going on job interviews to your dream job. You just need some job. Same as me, I went there and the lady which lead the interview said: "well you have great work experiences for this, you have education, why you want to work here and not somewhere else?" My first idea was what?! So they didn´t take me there because I was too qualified. To be truly when I am seeking a good worker I will take to job a good worker...

3. Yes you need connections

Sooo many people will tell you how you don´t need connections and to know right people on right places. YOU NEED TO. Once I was on job interview on position of court reporter. I am writing really good and fast. So why not to try it. There was around 30 people on this. It was on nearly whole day, and there was more parts. Like if you have right education and if you know how to write on PC, etc. During the day I was a witness as a worker of court (don´t know the position) went around three adepts and said: "aahh, this is only formality for you, you will get it." I was stupid and  I believed that I had a chance (HA HA). And will win justice but she´s sooooo blind. So how it ended. There last 7 people. I was there, three "only formality" people and three unknown people. These three unknow people went on last round, I was also waiting on it and when somebody came from the room I asked how it was there. The answer each time was: "oh, nothing, they only ask me on my study and why I am here." So I though fine, it wasn´t. I get finally to the room. And they started to ask me: "on which departments is divide this court? what are doing these departments? with what efficiency,?" And how it ended? Those three "only formality" was already working there on some lower position, so they get those three free places, those three unknown people get their previous positions and I was sended away. I have education, I answer on their questions, I write on PC as one of the fastest and it didn´t helped me, why? because of NO CONNECTIONS. If someone from you have now a crazy big need to write me on this a comment why I didn´t do this and that and I should say this and that just don´t. In reality, it works like when you want the justice and you are in right, everything on world will be your failure and you will be pusnih, so just don´t write comment on this...

4. Yes you really need them

I was a witness of this in my previous job. Boss wanted a new worker but it was like a "ask all your friends about which you think that could do this job." And this is each time, first is firm looking for some worker on lower positions, then workers are asking some friends. Yes you will do it, again, if you have crazy need to comment this with NO, just don´t do it. And why you will do it? Because when will came your boss and he/she will ask you if you don´t know somebody good or right for this you wouldn´t said oh I will write right in this moment on internet that we are seaking for worker. No, you will think and you will get idea like oh, wait, Johny, Mike, July (or any other person) is searching for job. And you have candidate. I have also once talked with one lady who were already in retirement. She was working on half time or from time to time in her previous job to help new worker. She didn´t have any knowledge about the thing, or education or practice. Just nothing, just knew the right person. But when I asked how are people getting there jobs it was like you need more practice, don´t you want to go back to school to have more and more education? Like a, thanks for nothing...

5. Stupid questions

I was before few weeks on a job interview where it started in a normal way. There were a man with woman. The man asked me : How are you? I said Fine, thanks. Then he told me that job interview have three stages and this is first part with some basic questions and that How are you was the first. He asked me what  I answered. Like a when it is such a needable answer he should listen, remember and write it down. I answered him that he can write what he want and give me second question. Yes this was the RIP of whole job interview. Because I said what I really mean and not going crazy from his "awesome" questions. The second was also "really" good it was what you want from job? I said that  I don´t understand, from job I want job. In this way went whole interview and didn´t call me again. You can think that these questions was important in psychological way and so on, but those questions will help if will be better specified and if will the person write down the answers...

6. Personal agencies

Oh, yes, personal agencies. I think that everyone at least once tryed to find job through them, maybe have somebody luck. I don´t. I was before a month in once of these agencies and the man who led the interview asked me on how many job interview I was from the start of the year. I said 20, I am active person, I want to work, I want to be independent. I am searching for job. And he asked me why I didn´t get a new job? Wau. I told him that some of them wanted the starting of work as soon and that time I couldn´t, or they want some special skills which I didn´t have. And he ended it like oh these couldn´t be reasons each time. And I really like to told him that I don´t have enough connections and friends to get a good job...

7. Library

During the writing of this article I remembered on one really "nice" job interview. It was to library. It wasn´t nothing special, you don´t needed practice or education and I need job, So I tryed it, I and the 200 more persons. It was a big library, we were going up and down to see everything like idiots, after few turns I have no idea how to get out. Some of the rooms where so small that only few of us could listen why is important this room. That job was in my view horrible, it was like a whole day going up and down on the ladder for and with books, you must carefully in this part because somebody can lock you in the big special cupboard, and then carrying many, many books throught the city on wheelbarrow. So, really not a dream, wholelife job. But for some time, ok. I have luck that I get to the final part of interview after half day. And I was so positive I said that everything is fine, I will like that work, I wouldn´t have problem with works in archive, and after those years, I have no idea who got that work...

8. Student jobs

We already tryed them. Student job on one time, one day, one evening. One of the many which I tryed was to clean the office. I get instructions from one woman: "you will make clean tables and cabinets first with wet dishcloth, then with dry one, then you will polish it." To make all these things on each every part it tooked some time. After really not enough time she came and was surprised that its not already everything done. I really don´t have superpowers...

9. Don´t work with people

I was also on one student job which was a worker in dressing room on of the students parties. The work was to take the coats, give paper with number to person and second paper with number on coat, and give coat on hanger. Then will that person come and will get coat back. In ideal world it will be ok, but we are not in ideal work. The number of people were much higher than number of free hangers. I was trying to calm down all of those people, to explain them the situation, to find the solution, we want only few minutes, of course we didn´t get them. It was horrible, people where screaming, some total big stupid was turning off the light, and it ended that people where throwing down their coats on the floor. Of course some of them get lost, or we have a big problem to find them, and what was doing people? Screaming again. To write something to all these people: if you don´t want to lose your things, don´t throwing them away and wait that they will wait on you...

I can easily continue in this article, but it will be crazy long, so I am ending. If you are reading this, congratulations, you are a bookworm. Its not in bad way wrote, I am also bookworm. Through this article I don´t want you to write that it will be only horrible and you wouldn´t get a job. You will, you can. You can do anything you want. I am only writing that IT WILL BE HARD. GOOD LUCK.
