Jobs, you can take ’em or leave ’em! Ok, well in this current economic climate (my new saying) you really can’t.
Even if you are the most qualified in a mile of CV’s there is no possibility that you’re ever going to reach the last hurdle of a 2nd interview. I should know, I’ve had both long bouts of unemployment and internships where even after high praise for a job well done I’ve been met with the dreaded “We would love to keep you on but (insert incomprehensible business jargon)”. After recently securing a new gig as a Social community manager (mini yaaay), the sheer weight of starting a new job, the responsibility and workload that may fall across my desk finally dawned on me.
