"OVER QUALIFIED"




In order to generate more views to my Blog, I think I need to change my tactics.  Should I write about the story of me, looking for work, looking for that one opportunity to change into someone i can be even more proud of than I already am?  Should I look into going back to school, to venture into something completely different from the everyday monotony of my life?

I work only 2 days a week, in Administration, I have had 4 interviews for positions and have been told by all of them that I am Quote "OVER QUALIFIED" and end up not getting the job.  My husband works like a mad man, and I sometimes feel that I am not pulling my weight. I want to make money, I want to work a full time job, in whatever.  Heck, even Lowe's didn't hire me.  WHAT?!

DO I HAVE TO DUMB DOWN MY RESUME?

I have applied to countless number of jobs, simple Customer Service jobs, where all i do is greet and direct... results... NOTHING!  

Maybe I should start me own business... but in what?  And how will I get the money to start said business.  I love photography, but they are a dime a dozen here, getting jobs by reputation, photo quality and pricing.  I an not professional, by any means, I don't have the newest camera in the world, I have a beautiful SONY Alpha first generation, that is starting to show it's age.  To buy a new one, would cost between $500 - $1000 dollars, and that doesn't include the lenses.

Where have all the good jobs gone... let me tell you, they have all gone overseas where they don't pay nearly what they deserve for the shit that get's thrown a them.  I don't know what to do, where to go or even how to start over.

No one said life was easy, but they also don't tell you that when you have great work ethic, and a tonne of experience, that the guy interviewing you will tell you that you are over qualified.  They don't prepare you for the job you want, or the job you need.  Life does not prepare you for the let down, the turn down and the refusals.

If I could make money off of writing my blog, Lord knows I would.

So, I will keep applying to jobs, whether I am over qualified for them or not.  I just want to contribute to society as normal human being, who can do the job.  I know how much you are offering to pay me, or I wouldn't have applied.  I am not going to dispute what you can pay, or I wouldn't have applied.  Don't interview me, or interview me, it's your choice.  The worst thing someone can do after you apply is having them tell you, "If we don't call you, it's because we have gone a different way"  Screw you, call the people you interview a let them know they didn't get the job. 

RANT OVER
