    I have an interview on Tuesday for a company that I've applied to 4 times in the last two years. I'm very excited and nervous. I'd be working directly in the LGBTQ+ community which I've always wanted to do.

    This is the first time I've ever felt passionate about a job and it would be the highest paying job I've ever had, so I am kind of freaking out and wish Tuesday would get here already.
  2. I have a Skype interview in half an hour (decided one hour ago) and... yeah it's probably gonna be a disaster.

    Good luck.

  4. They switched off their own camera, it was awkward as fuck. Telling them that my own Italian university didn't offer either the time or the option to do pre-graduation internships left them confused. Yes we're Italians we don't follow the European rules even if we should let me live.

    Dealing with rejection from employers can be a real problem for people with underlying mental health issues. I failed to get a promotion I went for earlier this year and it sent me into a spiral of questioning whether life was worth living for a good week or so. I look back now and I'm like

  11. I’m still annoyed as we’re too busy at the minute for me to get feedback so I’ve gotta wait till next week at earliest. Once I’ve had that, I can let it go.

  13. I applied for a job at my dream company and had 2 rounds of great interviews with them, but then ultimately they decided upon the only 1 other candidate that also made it that far. Fucking sucks.

    At least the current project is interesting to learn from and probably gets me an overseas visit.

    2 years and 4 failed attempts later, I finally got the job! I knew I would get it if I could at least finally get an interview.
