Trainee Grade Scheme I applied for. TRAINEE! Not MANAGER or even ASSISTANT, TRAINEE! Hi Selina, unfortunately you have been unsuccessful in getting the job! Me, ‘err why?’ said in a lovely shocked and disgusted tone!
Basically, I answered the questions fantastically, but I lack experience! EXPERIENCE?! I’m sorry for a poxy Trainee Grade Scheme where you don’t need experience?! So having 10 GCSEs, 3 and a ½ A Levels, NVQ Level 2 in Business Administration and a year’s paid work experience at the Council clearly means I’m unqualified. I sound bitter don’t I?
I would have preferred them to be honest, well they were honest in saying I came across really well etc and they can’t actually fault me, but they should have said we already have a couple of blinkie learners at the college who we promised the job to!
They were also unsure why I had applied for the position. Let’s see now it’s not brain surgery, it was only open to blind and partially sighted unemployed individuals. Humn, so did I apply because I wanted a job perhaps? ARGH!
Anyway, they can stuff their little job that I didn’t want really. I’m so much better than that anyway, but was willing to lower myself to their level just to say I work. So they’ve done me a favour.
I have a job interview on Thursday at the Council in the Highways department. I would say fingers crossed and all that jazz, but let’s face it I’ll be just as surprised as you if I ever find work!
