Curriculum vitae’s, cover letters, elevator pitches, strengths, weaknesses, where I see myself in five years and thank you emails…
“R” is for rejection.
Hey! Girl With No Job, move over, there is a new Queen in town and I am ready to reign!
25+, taken and unemployed. There is only one positive word: taken. Well, thank God for that. Seriously #GirlWithNoJob, you need to pass that name onwards.
No so since receiving my bachelors (and I know what you are thinking… 25+, it was about time! But hey, everyone has their own road to travel so mind your own beezwax, no hate on this page).
Dear “Forget Everything You Learnt In University”,
We appreciate you taking the time to submit your application to XXX XXX XXX.
We regret to inform you, that at this point in time, we have moved on with other candidates. However, we will keep your information on hold.
I cannot begin to count how many of these letters I have received in the past three months, and no matter the companies, they are all the same… Side note, I have gotten through to interviews, so not all bad.. don’t think I’m that unwanted. Seriously though, I know that these are automated emails that they send out to everyone who is not qualified or does not that the 15 years of experience that they expect you to have. And I am too proud to have an internship and work for free, well, I just cannot afford to work for free…
25+, unemployed and not broke yet, but getting there.
On behalf of all of me and my fellow soldiers who are in the same situation that I am in, please hire us, we are a lot of fun, most of us are hard workers and passionate about what we want to do and we live in a world where we cannot afford to be unemployed and not doing anything might be the most boring thing on the planet!
