I'm Sad

Why am I sad? I applied for a job at City Hall a few weeks ago. I got interviewed, and I didn't get the job. I'm the alternate. This is a job that I have been doing as a temp for a month and a half now. I have to ask, what does it take? They know I am good, they've seen me work. They know I will do the job to the best of my ability. I will try, I will put in the effort. My interview went extremely well. Everything there likes me. I'm respectful, honest and willing to do the job well even when I am not full time and I'm getting paid crap.

But no, some person who will probably turn out to be a bum like everyone else who has ever held that position turned up, so they hired that person instead.

So, I am sad. I don't know why I never get these jobs. I suck. That must be it.

I'm sorry to hear that...I've felt the same way recently. I'm sure something will work out!

Do NOT believe that for a second. The moment you buy into that lie is the moment that you sell yourself short.

Jobs can be a lot to do with luck and timing. Your time will come. You need to be patient.

I know it can get you down but keep trying.

You will find your perfect job.

It's times like these when we just have to trust in Providence. Especially when I look back on my brief career in showbusiness, it consistently seemed that every time I lost out on a job that I thought I was sure to get, it was because there was an even better one waiting down the road that I didn't know about. That pattern has persisted even into my new "office" career; right at the moment where I found myself having to make the decision to take a permanent job, exactly the opportunity that I was looking for opened up, and I got it. Just trust yourself.
