In that moment it felt like nothing in my life was working. I failed to get this job too. He asked me a few questions and I think I answered them well, but by the end of it, I felt like I had messed up.
Both jobs involve using scissors. That would be a yes! And plenty of it. On my way home I started thinking of all the things I should have said but failed to think of during the actual conversation. Naturally this leads to things going from pleasantly polite to super awkward VERY quickly!
I failed at something that should have come naturally to me. So many years ago I attended a rather fancy work function with a very good friend of mine.
And so I applied and went to this job interview not knowing what to expect. At the same time, my voice sounded very timid and soft — the perks of just having had a cold, I guess.

All I had to do was pretend to be the person who answers the phones and runs errands for my very lovely and very talented faux boss. My headache intensified and the world started spinning that little bit more.
Then I realised that I am always looking for validation. I had been looking for jobs because I felt like I wanted to do something meaningful, I guess.
How do people deal with rejection again? I calmed down as soon as I realised this.I learned a lot, saw lots of smart people giving interesting talks, got to see friends from all over the country who I really like but rarely get to see, and came away with all kinds of.

the very definition of a shitty call centre. you had a target of 8mins per phone call i think it was, it took over 5 just to get the users details on the system as when you bought something from the store the store members should have added their details in against that.
