How I Lost Two Jobs I Needed Today. by Sashafm(f): 7:08pm On Nov 23, 2015
One of my greatest selling point had always been the fact that I am very outspoken. Well that advantage turned into a great disadvantage for me today sad. I have always heard about people saying how they kept on saying rubbish at interviews and they new it but could not stop themselves, that was exactly what happened to me today.

Today I woke up very optimistic, I had an interview in V.I, that was number one and another job consideration, number two. In which, conversations had already begun on it.
I got to the venue of my first interview very early and I was person the first person to be interviewed. After the interview I got a call to come back for another testing to decide who will get the job. I was already congratulating myself,only for me to shoot myself in the leg sad sad as my brain was coordinated but my words refused to follow suit when asked what I thought of the job.

Alas , my mouth started spewing out jargon about how not tasking enough the job was, shuuuu shocked shocked for someone that has been sitting down at home for over a month after service. I tried to rephrase my words but Iro o, the deed had already been done. After listening to my self and seeing the expression of the interviewer, I new even I wouldn't employ myself. I was devastated at how, so close to the job I was and how I lost it to over-zealousness.
Not long after that I was dismissed while, the other girl girl stayed behind. That was when I realized the gravity of what my mouth had done, I already passed all the test to the best of my ability but why would you tell an interviewer that the work is not mentally challenging enough!!! who does that

Now the second one was supposed to be easy, as the owner of the business has already called me and I thought we were on track only for me to return back b from the island and receive a message about how someone else closer to the office has been found and even had an experience in customer service. Alas that was the Last straw, I received the message and I WEPT.

Maybe the job wasn't really meant for you considering your energies could be better utilized elsewhere

Don't worry , your time will still come. I have an Uncle that went for bank interview, but ended up telling them he wanted to be an Engineer. They still employed him. So maybe its not your job.

God have reason for everything
The Jobs wasn't for you
Something better is coming but learn your lesson
About four month back I was going after two things
The first two things I was going after didn't work out . There was delay
Guess what I had two better opportunity
The First two was going to cost me about $120,000.00 with monthly return of $2000.00
The second opportunity thank God cost about $100,000.00 monthly return of $2350.00
Long time value, second opportunity was better
