Microblog Monday--Long Term Unemployment Hell
It went well--at least I thought so. I coaxed a smile and shared laughter from what I am told was a panel interview. I was excited leaving it. I started planning for possible call backs and other things. Friday I got a call from the headhunter that set up the interview and was told they hired internally.
If they were going to hire internally, why bother interviewing me in the first place? I'm not saying it was a waste of my time, but it was a waste of my hope.
I've been over a year without a job. Unemployment is gone and I am eating rapidly into the savings I have. I'm lucky to have my safety net, but I need to be earning money. The hope was nice but knowing I didn't have it when I walked in is not.
