Well, the job interview I went on that I felt went fantastic did not result in my dream job. However, the principal said that I was second on the list and I definitely wowed her in my interview but the board ultimately chose someone with more experience. I don't understand how you are supposed to gain experience if no one will hire you. When I got that phone call the other day it rocked me to my core. I cried for hours AT WORK which made me feel selfish but that was my dream. When she told me that I wasn't picked it felt like someone punched me in my stomach. Dramatic yeah...but no less real. I was truly devastated.
My bosses obviously knew that it was something that meant a lot to me and when they come back from lunch that day they kind of offered me a raise. Basically for each deal done successfully I will get extra money on my paycheck. We have had 10 successful deals this month so thats extra cash money for me. I truly appreciate their thoughtfulness, and I still feel selfish for being bummed out about the other job.
I called my mom crying and she was like its one door closing but it doesn't mean others wont open up. I really freakin hate that saying...seriously!
However, as I was on my way home the assistant texted me and said they just had another resignation to be on the look out for that job opening. Today (7-25) the principal emailed me and told me my interview was a pleasure and to please keep applying. I felt like she was giving me a hint so I checked the website, and sure enough there was the job posting. I applied but I am not expecting anything.
I can't get that excited again because that rejection hurt worse than any break up I'd ever experienced. All I can do is try my best at whatever it is I'm doing. So yeah, technically that door slammed in my face, but I got a raise and there's another opportunity knocking.
