(Still) Unemployed and in need of encouragement

I'm feeling kind of down in the dumps about finding a job.

I know it hasn't been too long since I've started seriously looking for a job (about 4 months), but I'm starting to doubt myself.

Today I filled out another application, this time for a part-time job because it seems like I cannot even get entry-level office jobs due to my lack of experience in an office setting. Even though, really...how hard is it to pick up a phone and file some papers, and type data? I KNOW I can do all of those things! I was feeling slightly happy about turning in my application. My husband, Alan, told me that his coworker would even send the director of HR a letter about me since I applied for a job she was in charge of filling and I ended up not getting a call back for an interview. But she really liked my cover letter and everything. I was in her top 5 choices, but they only interviewed her top 3.

Anyway...I was talking with my husband and we've been talking about how annoying it is that the girl they chose to get the job I applied for last (not this part-time job) was straight out of college. She got the job because she worked part-time in her admissions office while in college. Well, I brushed it off. Today, Alan told me that he heard this girl also got the job because when she handed in her application she introduced herself to everyone in the office and "dazzled" them. So, the director of HR called Alan's boss to tell him about how great this girl was.

So, after hearing that I felt kind of down on myself thinking "Gosh, I guess having an amazing cover letter and being fully capable isn't always enough." It's just frustrating.

I know some may say "Well, next time you hand in your application go introduce yourself." But that's not me. I'd feel so awkward doing that. Not to mention we only have one car and I have no way of getting there. Maybe I'm making excuses. I don't know. Ever since I graduated college I feel like my self confidence has slowly been going down the drain. Like I'm in a constant battle between knowing I'm capable but feeling like I'm incapable. I don't know if that even makes any sense.

I had been doing relatively well lately with thinking positively, even after not getting any interviews for any of the jobs I've applied for. But hearing about a college grad getting the job over me just sent my head into a whirldwind of negativity and self doubt. I don't even know if that girl went in there thining she was going to "wow" them all. That's probably just who she is. So, then my illogical self starts to tell me that who I am is not enough.

Blah...just looking for some encouragement or something. I know I have to keep trying, but am in need of something to raise my spirits back up because I'm feeling pretty crummy.

The best you can do is all you can do! You are trying really hard to find a job and I know that can be frustrating. It is really tough right now and I do feel that technology has ruined the job search....For everything else I feel like its a great thing but I find it amazing that you cannot even go into a company anymore and just drop off your resume and cover letter. Everything is done by emails now and that has made a huge negative impact on the job searching for people. My brother is going through the same thing and has even asked me at times what am i doing wrong.
It is good that you have a loving and supportive husband to keep your spirits up. It does help! I hope something goes through soon for you Good luck

Twilight,

You are not alone. So many people are in your shoes right now trying to find a job and feeling down on themselves because they aren't having any luck. The fact that you haven't found something yet has nothing to do with you or your skills, it's just a crappy economy.

I'm sorry you are going through this. I hope you find something great soon. I will be thinking about you and sending good job getting vibes your way.

Thanks ladies

I also wanted to clarify that I have nothing against college grads or their capabilities. I reread my original post and there was an air of hostility when referring to college grads.

It's just annoying when you're told that you weren't called in for an interview because the other applicants were more qualified. But I must admit that my job experience is quite unconventional compared to most others. I have an arts background, so that often times doesn't "translate" into the real world, even though it absolutely can! Most employers want literal work experience rather than something that, while different, can prepare you with the same qualities and maybe even more.

I think just getting an interview would be a bit of an encouragement, even if I still didn't end up getting the job. At least it would mean they thought I was somewhat qualified!

I know I'm whining now. I know there are a lot of people who are worse off than I am and have been unemployed far longer than I have been. I should be grateful that my husband at least has a job.

I just want to have my confidence back. That would be enough to keep me going anyway

Thanks for letting me vent.

Hey Marisa, it is true that jobs are not plentiful enough in the states. They still need to smooth out the economy and it will it is coming. It always does! These hard times come around every 10 years and one of them had 19% on mortgages and no jobs or apts.

Hang in there, and I do know that taking in your resume usually does help alot. Hard to say no to your pretty face! Don't be discouraged, something will come soon enough, dont give up!!! Hugs, and keep us posted!

Hey Marisa, I feel your pain cyba sista! I had worked for 21 years finding jobs for people with special needs and never did the stereotypical grocery bagging or maintenance positions that so many folks with challenges seem to be stuffed into. I had some people that were pretty tough to place due to physical, cognitive or behavioral issues. However, I did it and absolutely kicked butt at it!

However.....it appears that there are just so many more people that are out of work than there are opportunities. I am not even getting interviews lately. I am signed up with every job website that seems worth a darn and have exhausted all of my contacts within my field. It is just brutal out there. I saw last night on the news that there was a job fair in the detroit area for 10-15 days of work. they had over 1000 people waiting in line overnight from like 3 am.

things have got to get better soon pal, keep plugging along and just do the very best you are able. you are a wonderful person and deserve better, strong & proud baby! Better days are ahead.

I went through this when I first graduated from University only in reverse. No one wanted the girl fresh out of school, they wanted experience (which I didn't really have). I ended up taking a job in my boyfriend at the time, Uncle's company that was (I felt) way beneath me, but it turned out to be the best thing I ever did because it led me so many unexpected places.

I know it is especially hard for you as you don't really know a lot of people in Chicago, but networking really is the key. Do you have any relatives or people your husband may know that have an "in" at certain companies? Is there something you could start on your own, like a home based business even if it's something small that could lead you to more contacts and perhaps a future job? I really feel that if you could just get a small start you'd be well on your way to bigger and better things.

The job market sucks everywhere right now and all you can do is keep trying. I'm a college grad as well with a Masters in bologna apparently. Not really but that's what it feels like cause once you finish college/grad school and try to get a job you realize that you have no experience and everyone wants 2-6 years worth of pointless pubic hair trimming or something. Anyone can do it but the point is that they did it already and you didn't therefore they get the awesome jobs while we have to start licking boots.

You have to do whatever your can to be remembered. Some people are financially capable of flying their private jet over to the hiring crew's house and make them dinner and give them a massage and get the job because they remember that person when the application comes across their desk. "Oh ya, that's the person who made the roast beef and gave me a full body massage. Totally hired!" Sure going there in person is important because its personal and you'll be remembered. But in reality, you can only do what you're capable of. If you can hand in your application in person, then I recommend it no matter how shy you think you are. People like hiring confident people. So stand up straight, smile, don't fidget, extend your hand and introduce yourself. It has a longer lasting impression than a name on a piece of paper. But if you can't then maybe try a phone call instead. Always try to go in person when you can though. Personal connections is how most people get jobs.

I graduated over a year ago and still have no luck. My boyfriend just got an entry level job after graduating 4 years ago. Its hard but don't give up.

Thanks to all for the responses.

Not 20 minutes after my last post I received an e-mail in my inbox:



Hi Marisa:

I received your application for Human Resources Assistant. I would like to schedule a time to have you come over and meet with me for awhile to discuss this position.

I have some time Thursday afternoon or anytime on Friday if this will work with your schedule.

Please let me know a good time for you.

Thanks,

Janet
Director of Human Resources
Trinity International University






Now I know that this doesn't necessarily mean anything. I am actually not even sure if this is technically an interview. Is it? But, at least I'm finally meeting with someone! Yay! And the director of Human Resources at that. If this doesn't pan out, maybe she'd recommend me at least for future job openings if she likes me.

Kelly - The husband has been trying to use as many connections to get me interviews. Trinity is actually where he works in the admissions department (also the school I attended for a short period of time). We don't know any relatives up here either, so yeah. It's been difficult finding those connections, but we've been trying our hardest! Hopefully, I'll meet with the HR director this week and at the very least get my foot in the door!

Thanks again everyone. Keep your toes and fingers crossed, pray, and send your best thoughts my way that this "meeting" goes well!

Hi Marisa, sorry to hear you're feeling depressed about your job hunt. I am fortunate to have full-time work, but I know many people who have been unemployed for months or even years. It's a terrible job market out there. Many talented, smart, experienced people are without jobs just due to the poor economy and bad job market - unfortunately, that means you're competing with a lot of people for what few jobs there are.

I think in another thread you've said that you're a singer (?). Maybe you could advertise your musical services, you could sing at weddings or something like that? Just something to keep you busy and get you out of the house for a few hours a week until you find the job you want. Otherwise, is there anything you can do to boost your resume - maybe take a class or volunteer somewhere? I know you're an animal lover (you've mentioned your cats before), and I know places like animal shelters are always looking for volunteers. Good luck with whatever you decide to do, and I hope you are able to cheer up soon!

I feel your pain.

My problem is that my last job I held for 2 years, so I kinda have to put that on my resume. Thing is, when I apply they contact my previous employer who tells them I was fired for going over my sick days, so that causes me to lose the interview. So now, after not working for 10 months I decided to apply for SSD & SSI. And if I don't get it for the crohn's, I'll reapply and most likely get it for depression.

I did decide to go back to school for Legal Office Management (Legal Secretary) and found out that the field is nearly as good as the medical.

See what field is hiring the most in your area, and if it's interesting to you apply as much as you can in it.

Hi Marisa,

My girlfriend is 46, and Crohn's took her out in her last job. It was a real bad scene, and the "institution" should have been sued, they were so hostile and agressive. Believe it or not it was a "church".

She is having a nightmare with posititions and interviews. Twice, she has made it to the top two candidates, only to be rejected. The last job she was a "shoe-in" and the president loved her. But the board of trustees apparently owed someone a favor, and they selected a "college grad" with virtually no experience - and the job was an executive position. Incredible.

The job situation is extremely competitive, and employers can select as they please.

So there are a a couple things you can try that will bring about encouragement, alothough you might not get immediate results with a job.

There are hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, and a number of not-for-profit organizations that welcome volunteers. When I'm feeling down, nothing works better than finding someone who needs help, and then rolling up my sleeves. When I feel like you do about myself, I need something other than a paycheck. Helping someone without any expectations may be "out of style", but to someone who is in need, you can make a difference in someone's life. There are countless volunteers in their red suit jackets at the Cleveland Clinic who do nothing but escort people to the many "cities" in that center.

The other thing was mentioned, and that is working to develop "human" networks. Facebook doesn't mean a thing - in fact I haven't joined Facebook because most online "social networking" isn't social at all, it's a mere pretense for sexual encounters most of the time. Married, single, old, young...lots of extensive keystrokes going back and forth for the sake of orgasms. Phooey! Or how about playing "blackjack" for hours with Turkish nationals trying to secure green cards through arranged marriages? The internet has become so disgusting, obscene, and degenerate to me that I often want to throw my computer out the window.

Getting to social events such as organizational benefits at schools and universities, alumni get-togethers, and volunteering for educational or fine arts service will get you in front of people. You have a HUGE and beautiful art museum that is quite impressive, and over the weekends, tons of people walk through the doors.

I hope you catch my drift...put one foot in front of the other and get your face in front of people, so they can see your smile and sense your warmth. That will help you feel better about you, and it might help you get connected to someone who can help you find employment.

Thanks, Joe!

Volunteering is a good idea. I'm rather far from the city currently (just moved into the 'burbs), so I'm looking for something a bit closer to home. but, I catch your drift on getting out there and extending my network of contacts. I'm sure this will be helpful to know for Alan as well as he's getting his MBA and will need to find a "real" job eventually.

Thanks for all your suggestions and encouragement!

Marisa, so excited about your conversation (preliminary interview?) on Friday! You'll be great!!!!

I'm aware that you have been reading about what to wear and I've said a few things on your FB page about it, too. Here's the crux of the matter: if it makes you feel CONFIDENT and tells people that you're well put together, then it's a good outfit.

Thanks, Kelly That is helpful.

I asked Alan how he thought I should prepare for my meeting on Friday (still not sure if this is a real interview or if it's a getting to know you sort of deal) and he said he wasn't sure, but he got the sense that she is the type to use more of a behavioral interview rather than "Tell me about a time where you had to deal with something unpleasant." But, he's going based on a hunch, so there's no telling.

I think my biggest concern is perhaps being too honest. Not oversharing, but I'm pretty honest when it comes to things. I know some people will say you shouldn't say certain things in interviews (ie telling your potential future employer you have Crohn's and may be out of the office for doctor's appointments or unexpected hospital visits), but for me I'd be uncomfortable withholding those sorts of things. I kind of feel like, if you really want to hire me you will hire me despite these things!

One main area I keep going over in my head is the fact that I'm applying for a job at the university I used to attend and decided not to go back to recently (realized it wasn't right for me). I'm worried if it comes up in our conversation it may be a "turn off." But on the other hand, shows that I have an understanding of the environment and atmosphere at the university!

Am sure you'll make the right decisions for you!

Re. you being a former student -- if the matter comes up, you could maybe consider softening the statement by saying that their academic program isn't quite right for you at this point in time (according to where you feel God wants you, if this is the case).

Getting a job is like being a salesman or rolling the dice. It is a numbers game.

There is a statistic out there some place that says if you apply for 100 jobs, you will get x amount of interviews and out of x amount of interviews you will get x amount of job offers.

Of course anything you can do to tip the odds in your favor, will increase that outcome, whatever it is.

It is a matter of persistence, and large numbers. You get better at it as you go, and your odds are ever increasing the more you do it.

Sorry to reduce it to math, but it really is a matter of the most persistent person wins.

So be persistent.

Dan

It's funny you talk about persistence.

Right after I posted this...I went down to the kitchen to put away my plates from lunch. I was standing there looking out my sliding glass doors to watch the birds land on the bird feeder. I started thinking about the darn squirrels that keep getting to the feeder, even after we put up a "squirrel guard" to keep them from getting to it. At first they weren't sure if they could get to it, but they kept trying and trying, even after multiple scare tactics on our part that caused them to scurry away quickly. Well...one day I look out and there the squirrel is hanging upside down by only his feet eating the bird seed out of it.

I just have to be persistent like those squirrels and eventually I'll get to the point where I'm not afraid to be hanging from my feet and getting what I've been trying so hard to get!

So glad you got an interview!!!
I feel your pain, too. I got my master's degree about a year and half ago and after that, I was completely at a loss. I stepped into a horrible job market and didn't get a job for about 6 months. It was tough and I got really down. Finally, I got a job...it was only a part-time position, but it has led to some extraordinary experiences and a great, compassionate team of people (very, very understanding about my crohn's!). I hope that great things turn out for you, too!!!

The Squirrel is one perfect analogy. Nothing is more persistent than the Squirrel trying to get into the feeder. And they almost always get there eventually, even though they are up against the most intelligent species on the planet.

Be the Squirrel.

Hey Marisa! Did I read somewhere that this position is part-time? If it is and you know that you'd be working, say, MWF and T/Th off, then you could plan ahead for your appts. on your days/times off. Since you would just be committing to part-time employment, what you do with the rest of your time wouldn't necessarily be relevant to the university. And as for unexpected hospital visits, these could happen to anyone, not just to a Crohnie!

Anyway, good luck with this appointment!

Something else to look at - check out Civil Service postings - that is a GREAT way to get a foot in the door - most are by examination, usually really good benefits/retirement - the playing field gets evened out.......there is protection too for illness, a lot more than in the private sector.
