This was after the involved application stage, the skills test, and two rounds of interviews. My background is eclectic enough that I’m not an obvious hire for almost anybody, and the jobs I could get with at least some degree of ease wouldn’t pay me enough to both pay the bills AND pay for child care so I could actually do the job.
Was excited about this one, and felt like I’d be a great fit. The next stage would have been to interview with the CEO. Welp. That’s the way the cookie crumbles, amirite?
Means I have to throw my heart and soul into my side ventures and pray they take off sooner than later. But not tonight. Tonight I’ll have a stiff drink and let myself feel bummed to get that self-pity out of my system. Then it’ll be back to it.
