Job searching

I've been actively looking for work since September. Last week on Wednesday I had my first ever interview. An interview that was a product of my spontaneous application for a job rather than me replying to an employer looking for employees. I went there and I thought the interview went smoothly. I could answer all her questions and I thought I had the experience and qualifications she looked for. On Monday I got an e-mail from her saying that they had chosen other candidates. What did I do wrong? It felt like such a failure, not only because I didn't get the job but because I thought the interview went well when it apparantly didn't! :(

After a dismissal like that I feel like I'm never gonna get a job. I feel like finishing a book is my safest bet to an income and that's just a huge gamble! I feel like the only thing I'm good for is studying and I'm running out of study support so I can't even do that.

We are young, but we have heart
Born in this world as it all falls apart
We are strong, but we don't belong
Born in this world as it all falls apart

  1. Vad tråkigt att du inte fick jobbet!
    Men om det känndes bra så gick det säkert bra också! Den personen råkade bara ha nånting som prioriterades, kanske hade den blivit intervjuad först, kände arbetsgivaren eller någon tidigare erfarenhet maybe?

    Sluta inte tro på dig själv! Du vet ju själv att du är bra på att studera = du kan mycket. Keep it up! Men ta en paus och andas emellanåt.

    Sök jobb hos gamingtidningar? Du skriver ju bra recensioner, du skulle kunna visa dem dina blogginlägg som är sådant.

  2. Det är svårt att tro på sig själv när man bara får en massa nej :(

    Jag sökte till fz.se som frilans. De sa nej för att mina recensioner inte var bra nog. Vill inte en nättidning ha mig så tror jag inte att en "riktig" tidning vill det heller :/
