My Last Week Of Joblessness And I Hope It Will Be Yours Soon Too. by okeniti: 11:15am On Sep 15, 2019
Due to some unfortunate circumstances, i've been jobless for almost one year and seven months. My applications were rejected over 200 times, attended over 20 failed interviews (aptitude tests, meeting recruitment consultants etc ect not included). Finally, the application I sent weeks ago and interviews I attended this week was the one that returned the congratulations we would like you to join our team to resume this coming week email.

I've had some tough times in my life especially in the last few years but this period has definitely been one of the toughest in my life so far. There's many bad things about being jobless in these times but more specifically, there's not many more degrading things in this life than not being able to stand on one's own feet (the only person you can rely on is yourself with more money). Having to ask family members for transport/cv printing/haircut money, the travelling from place to place in harsh weather, nerves getting better of self, being laughed or insulted out of interviews by hiring staff who think they are demi-gods and sadly those who forgot that life is seasonal looking down on you when they really need to focus on themselves.

When the offer came through, and still now, I don't know how to feel. Whether to celebrate, even to smile has been hard. I'm grateful but I just don't think it's truly sunk in. The company is a multinational too which offers lots of room for growth, so long as you want it.

So what am I trying to say? I got interview invite last Friday for this role. That Sunday, I told myself this is the last week that i'm jobless. I'm going to speak what I want into existence, research company, brush up on my skills to handle technical tests and make it work; and it did work. For those with interviews this coming week, remember your thoughts and words become realities so try be positive. They called you so they believe in you so far. Be mindful of your thoughts, humble yourself, brush up on what you need to, looking good = feeling good and most importantly, making this work means I can get my life back on track.

To the people (including some of you here) who went out of their way to uplift me in some dark times with words and actions, I just want to say thank you, when my day arrives I will remember. And those who things are not going well in the job hunt, your time is coming very soon. Social media if used correctly can be a great place to find work. Hang in there and don't give up. Every loss is a lesson leading to something better, if you learn from it.

Congratulations to you, but you didn't tell us how you got information on the job before you applied. The most difficult aspect of job hunting is getting the job advertisement. Most of the advertisement on job vacancy section of nairaland are just full of spam by some bloggers hungry for traffic
