My life is a storm and today I'm struggling to find peace. I'm at that weird place where I'm overqualified and there are no jobs in my field at the moment. So I'm applying for jobs that are unwilling to hire me because they're afraid I'll move on as soon as I find more money. And the challenge is that I probably will. So would anyone.
After driving to Birmingham for three interviews - I lost out to the unknown candidate. And...I have no clue why. Where they younger? More qualified? Less qualified? What? And I know they can't tell me - that's a lawsuit waiting to happen. And I'm not writing this to solicit sympathy...I'm not. Actually the answer that I got from a friend that I liked the best was "those bastards." It made me laugh out loud.
So, how do you keep peace within yourself when panic mode is settling in? What do you do? And if this blog disappears....don't be surprised because I'm embarrassed even writing this but I'm having the struggle with "why" today.
