More Misadventures in Finding Real Employment
What did I apply for? Helpdesk. That usually involves repairing PC hardware or troubleshooting software, which I actually have experience AND education in, you know, in addition to database and web programming.
Hell, even today I had an in-law call me because she waited six hours and Windows 10 still wouldn't allow her to log in. Somehow I suspect the hard drive is the culprit given she's stuck on the login screen for that long (wouldn't be the first time, as I've had to replace a laptop hard drive for said in-law before).
Yet, I still got this message in my email:
Thank you for your interested in Blue Origin.
Unfortunately, I do not currently have a position open that matches your skill set but I would love to keep your resume on file and active for our future openings. We are steadily growing and will open more opportunities soon.
Again, I really appreciate your interest in Blue Origin and thank you for allowing me to review your resume.
Bullshit. If that's the case, then why post the position in the first place? This is supposed to be a booming start-up company? Bullshit, extraction racket is more like it.
Here's another laugh: My latest in a long line of employment specialists actually tried to get me a job as a cleaning assistant for 10 dollars an hour. No offense to people who clean for a living, but that's work I can't physically handle. You'd think my E.S. would know that given that I talked about that at length.
I seriously wish I had a real way out of this damned rut.
