I went down to an employment agency today because
a friend told me that they helped her get a job and were great to work with. I
decided to wear a collared shirt, tie, slacks and dress shoes instead of a
t-shirt and jeans, even though I knew that I’d just be filling out paperwork
and taking some tests. It never hurts to make a good impression. Especially when
working with an agency.
Turns out I had nothing to worry about. I made a good impression but never made it to the testing. While talking with a representative about their open positions I was told that I’m "over-qualified" for EVERYTHING that they have. Do I have to look shabby, deny my education, understate my experience and forget to comb my hair to get a job? I’m 39 and over-qualified.... grrrrrrrrrr.
Sorry for the rant, I allowed my frustration to overcome me. We now return to our regular scheduled programming.
