Pissed off!
« on: February 03, 2006, 08:45:44 PM »
I'm pissed off.  I took a test and had an interview with a company the other day.  They called to tell me that I didn't get the job.  They informed me that I tested very high on the test and my interview went well.  I know most of the people who got the positions and I'm embarrassed that I didn't.  I have 2 college degrees and lots of experience.  Most of the people who got the job didn't have any college or much experience.  I know I am way more qualified then most of them.  I pissed because I know one person who works there couldn't get into college without taking extra classes but I can't get a job there and I have 2 degrees and more education.  AAAAGGGHHHH!

Often the company doesn't want to hire based on qualifications because they won't be able to keep you. If you accept the job now, and are over-qualified, Chances are before they really see a return on there investment of training you, you'll find a better job and move on. Then they are back where they started from, minus the time and effort 'breaking you in"
 I feel into a similar trap. The Tech schools poured out electronic tech's faster than the job market could absorb them. By the time I got out, the companies could hire an engineer for a technicians job and pay. Thats what the did. Now prospective employers see the education and I'm a no-go. They don't seem to concider that there aren't any jobs in my field of training nor have I done that kind of work in 10 yrs.

The job was a customer service job which I have been doing for years.  I have  degree's in Computer Networking and Information Support .  Plus a real estate license and years in mortgage lending.  I am very well rounded but I live in a small town that doesn't have many opportunities.  Most people around here log or work in the mines.  

Hopefully I'll find something in the next couple weeks or I'll be unemployed!

Rice, I hope something turns up for you soon. I've done the unemployed thing before...no fun.

KS, it would appear we do have alot in common.

Rice river, that's what they tell you when someone has to hire their brother in law. It's still the good ol' boy system, even for many big companies. I have seen it happen many times where I work. It's certainly not fair, but it's the way they do it and they get away with it. Companies like that are difficult to work for, too.  >:(

My company just got done laying off about 300 of their software engineers.  In the news release, a company representative was quoted as saying that due to the slow down in the market, these layoffs were necessary and that when the market picked up again, they would hire "young new tallet" (quotations added).  What this equates to is that they layed off a bunch of the people that had been with the company for several years and were making some big bucks.  When the market picks up and they rehire, they're going to hire new kids, probably straight out of college and pay them the bare minimum!

Sucks, but that's the way big companies work! >:(

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
