limelight Posted August 20, 2008 Share Posted August 20, 2008 Hi all just wanted to share this with those out there who are unemployed/soon to be and hope it gives some much needed cheer or at least a bit of perspective . After 3 months of rejection...feelings of total inadequency...isolation from friends. avoidance of (curiously more frequent) 'family gatherings', dread of the 'So what do you do?' guaranteed number one question at social events..Ive landed a job. Granted working in a call centre its not the most exciting job in the world but it feels like the weight of the world has been removed. To those of you feeling lost right now, just dont give up. Unemployment is something anyone in the world can face...dont put yourself down..be receptive..more open minded. It will not last forever. The reason im saying this is because for me at a certain point of my hiatus I generally thought it would NEVER happen. All that time at uni a complete waste...but it wont be..I am to do some freelance writing in my spare time and be safe in the knowledge im supporting myself. Im still abit wary of negative reponses from family who may think 'hmm she has a degree why work in a call centre' but thats ok because im aware this is the real world, and paying your dues sometimes requires more than a piece of paper (tho its my favorite piece Whatever the job its still working experience....and it doesnt mean you are chained there for eternity! Good luck to everyone currently going through this xx Link to comment
