the dream job

Received the rejection call today. Uh huh. "You did very well, it was a hard decision, but the other candidate had more relevant experience. We really liked you and want to keep you details on file." I should be happy that I got to the final 2, beating out others who probably had more film experience than me, for a job at the most desirable company to work for in the independent film industry.

Getting this far through what was a very competitive job application process has given me a confidence boost. I can probably get a job at any boring company and get paid heaps more, but I don't want to. I'm not going to rely on looking for jobs online anymore either - it's all about making the right contacts in the right companies. I will not give up on getting my dream job, but in the meantime, I still want to leave my current job for anything else because I've had enough of babysitting incompetent people who would fail a grade 1 spelling test. Urgh, enough of complaining about my current job. The only positive thing to come out of my job is a really funny script I'm writing about the oddballs/losers/stupid people there. Time to start networking and building more relevant experience.

I have trouble networking because I'm hesitant to approach people a lot of the times. It seems to come more naturally to many. But you're right - it's usually about who you know that will help get your foot in the door.

You'll get your dream job soon enough! Like Echez said - at least you have a dream job in mind.

Tell me about it! I searched for over six months to get a decent job. I still havent found it... I settled for something else coz I need the money, but I'm still looking.

I hate when they say it was too hard to decide... pick me!!!
