My First Career Setback: I didn’t get the job
Well, as the title explains, I didn’t get the job. I a pretty upset, but I am a firm believer in everything happening for a reason, so I’m going to take this as a learning experience, give myself time to get over it, and then move on. I don’t have a choice. I honestly thought I was a good candidate, as many people have been contacting me regarding my resume. I think, if anything, I was over qualified for this job. Not to brag or anything, but it was a step down from my current position.
There is good news though. The company I am currently working for is in better condition, and it looks like we’re not going to get bought out and everything will stay the same: same name, same people, same everything.
I do have another interview scheduled for Thursday morning at nine in the morning. I am most likely going to call to cancel the interview. I think I am going to just stay with the company that I’m with. 1, I’m having some health problems ; 2, I may change positions and step down because of the stress of the health problems; and 3, when we do decide to have children, I’d like to be a stay at home mom. Of course, many things will have to be in place before that can happen, so we’re going to try our hardest to get ready for us to do that. We aren’t getting any younger, and frankly, my health may not allow us to have kids later. While all this bad news bums me out, I’m trying to remain optimistic. Hopefully my health problems aren’t as bad as I think they are, and life will go on. That’s all I can do right now.
