I have been searching for a job and I have given up temporarily until the Olympics are over. I have been feeling discouraged and not good enough. See, whenever I go apply for a job, I feel bad when I see other people applying for the same position. people who have more skills and experience then me. Like last week, I found a job that was newly posted on the Department of Workforce Services site and went to apply right away, a day after it was posted and it was already filled. It got me so mad. When I am given job leads I get scared. What if they don't like me? When I tried for the position at the Delta Center, where the Utah Jazz plays, I did everything the job counselors tell me. Go with a good resume, neatly dressed and groomed, and on time(I was half an hour early) for the interview. I answered all questions truthfully. But she called me and told me that someone else got the job! All I think of applying for is McDonalds or some minimum wage job. I do have skills in typing and computer and I have great customer service skills. I always do what I am told and never complain! When I find help wanted in office, they are always asking for 6 months or more experience. All the good jobs are taken by people more experienced than me. I don't know were to look for. I need health insurance and I would like to buy a house in one or two years. Also a car. I wanted to go to mexico for my cousin's wedding in May. How can one stay positive when there is bad luck. I'd be happier if everyday after school, I'd go to my job. When I hear of other people complaining about their jobs, I tell them to give it to me. I will be more than happy to trade with them. I was going to apply at Kmart, but now, I don't think so. I am trying to not be afraid of the cash register. I need new clothes, makeup(I don't have any), and I need to start feeling good about myself. Sorry, I had to vent my frustrations at the economy.
