Now What?

That job I was "anon" about? It was Macaroni Grill....and no I don't want to hear about how much you love it because it's got a crappy backbone when it comes to hiring. I finally got the balls and called to find out if I was still an applicant or not....turns out I'm not and all this waiting was for nothing. Thanks a lot.

You know, I waited for days for that stupid recruiter Dona to get back to me. I find that to be rude and assuming. My frustration isn't that I don't have the job....my anger is that these people don't know my back story. The heartache that I've gone through to get to where I am....the heartache that I'm currently going through and that I've persevered through it....now I'm making a comeback by finding a job. You have to walk through the fire not around it. I get it.

Part of Human Resources is understanding the humanity part of people; where they come from and how they got to where they are today. To assume everyone is the same is preposterous and to understand that everyone has a story gives each person a depth and a quality of intimacy. To me, I've not experienced that during my hiring experience.

I'm angry because (obviously) I don't have a job. I'm angry because I was treated like someone who just had nothing better to do than to hang around and wait for a job. I hated that Recruiters said they'd call me on Tuesday and I didn't hear back until Friday or even worse yet they said I'd hear back "by the end of this week" and then I never heard back. That's the worst.

You pick your brain as to what you did wrong....you know you did some things right. You're wondering "Are they not calling me because I don't have the job and they're regretting having to tell me?" or "Are they not calling me because I have the job and they're just too busy to do so?" You're already devastated in your mind because you can't possibly have gotten the job, certainly they would've told you....since they would've told you, when they said they'd call A WEEK AGO.

Look, all I'm saying is to hold yourself accountable. If you say you're going to call, then call, dammit so I can go on with my life. And yes, I do have one. I have to find a job. Recruiters need to put some sort of blind heart into their job....meaning they need to think that every employee has some sort of back story even if they don't get to know it....because most of us have one....and some of us have one that is pretty dang interesting.
