Will I ever get a job?
Recently I managed to secure an interview with an organisation I’d always wanted to work for. I did lots of preparation beforehand and was invited back for a second interview. But I felt one of the two women took a dislike to me. She was abrupt and had a lack of eye contact. I left the interview feeling thoroughly deflated. Sure enough, later that afternoon, I received an email to say, ‘we regret to inform you, but on this occasion you have been unsuccessful’. They also said I wasn’t able to contact them for feedback, which would have been helpful for any future interviews that I might go on. with no further job prosects on the horizon, I’m wondering if I will ever be employed again.
One swallow does not make a spring and one interview that does not show results does not mean you’re doomed forever. For a start, however much you wanted to work for this organisation, hasn’t it shown you it may not be a desirable working environment if the interviewer had poor communication skills and refused to give feedback? You did exactly the right thing – preparation, plus commitment. Keep plugging on and you will find the company that really deserves your obvious skills sooner or later.
