Another Jobhunting Post

Posted on: March 16, 2009

I should be delighted. I’ve got a really good chance to have a job again soon. I should be happy. I’ve made it through the short web screening and the phone interview. I should be glad. I have another phone interview tomorrow, this one a role-playing  one (assuming they send me the description they said they would). I should be smiling. We really need badly for me to get a job. I should be jumping up and down.

I’m sure you’ve guessed by now that I’m not.

I guess I’m spoiled. I thought by earning a Ph.D. and then building qualifications in two more fields (including an additional degree) I’d done what was needed to escape all those jobs for which they kept turning me down because I was overqualified.

But it would seem that I haven’t escaped them all.

I hope they’ll take long enough to hire me for me to come to terms with the type of work I’ll be doing. At the moment I’m very worried that I will hate the work so much that I will not be able to maintain a decent work attitude. That I will hate the work so much that I will do a bad job at it.

Yes, Im spoiled. I’ve spent very little of my working life doing work that wasn’t interesting to me. In fact, I can only think of one full year during which all the work I did was temp work and horrible. By the end of it, temp agencies were refusing to place me saying that employers were complaining about my making it evident that I could do so much more than was being asked of me. I cannot stand being bored, and I cannot seem to help showing it. So I’m worried instead of happy.

Whatever that says about me, so be it. It’s the way it is just this very moment.
