They told me to volunteer at a local primary school... so I rung about 20.
They all either already have volunteers or don't need anyone so I am back to sq 1.
Can anyone think of a reason I shouldn't call the high schools?
I have made a list from yellow pages...
Who'd have thought volunteering would be such a competitive market?!
I get really annoyed when people who know nothing more about you than from reading your CV and talking to you for 10 minutes decide they know whether a job would suit you better than you do
I've had this happen a couple of times, including one particularly annoying time when I was going for my first job - they said the job wouldn't challenge me enough, and that with my qualifications I should look for a management role. I had very little experience FFS! How was I suppose to get a management role if no-one would give me an entry-level job to get the experience?
I hate the whole job interview process. It all seems like such a waste of time!
You're overqualifed you'll be underwhelmeed by the job and you'll soon get fed up over working for a pittance... so we'll give the job to someone who'll not aspire to anything instead. That way we won't have to worry about readvertising 18 months - 2 years from now.
I am still really niffed off about this. I walked the technical test, as far as I could tell as no-one else could connect the network printer/join the domain even if at the time I didn't know that shadow copies were to do with 2k3 server and VSS I made a good stab at an educated guess.
I don't blame them for picking the other guy, I guess but I perceive the job as mainly technical, why pick someone who couldn't join a domain??? Factor in that I was looking at least a 5k pay cut you'd have thought they'd bite my hand off.
I think I will ask them if they want a volunteer LOL
