|Almost Got There Now I'm Depressed Cuz I Didn't by gonkin(m): 9:46am On Jan 14, 2022|
I lost my job as a power plant operator in December 2020 due to site restructuring. It was an IPP, they weren't generating up to proposed capacity and had to relocate. Some staffs were retained, few were laid off. I was amongst the few laid off.
Till date I'm still unemployed holding onto my hopes to get future opportunities to prove myself
Last year July 2021. I applied for the position of a fireman at seplat energy. Over 800 applicants too. Passed the first written interview the numbers dropped to 120 for the assessment. Passed the assessment it was down to the last 16 and 5 were to be selected for medicals. I was really good at it and thought I was gonna get it.
From July through September, October and December.
A close friend I always helped cuz he had no clue and looked up to me so for tips on what to do cuz he's never had such interview experience told me yesterday at 3pm that he got his invite for medicals and asked if I saw mine. I told him NO. He fell sad immediately that it wasn't the mission that we were supposed to succeed together. I told him at least 1 of us made it. I was deeply sad inside cuz i had the positive feeling I was gonna get to medical stage.
I need help getting motivated cuz im sad I didn't get there after 6months. I'm back to searching for jobs.
Please help me get back on my feet. I was too overconfident I was gonna get it so its killing me psychologically. Its not my first time failing but I actually had the mind I was gonna get this one for sure.
Please guys if there any job offers out there I could really use it to suppress this depression. Its worse than heartbreak. My appetite just vanished.
I need advice on how to get it out of my head.

It's going to be all right sir. I assure you. I'm also in need of a job. Keep your head up.

I have to but the effects ain't wearing off easy. The pay is just over 270k in a location where life is cheap and easy. That would have made a big break for me. Losing ur job isn't easy.

I need more links to get applications. Screening is easy and fun but not getting there after being successful through all stages is a killer. I need more applications

God knows what is best, and will do what is best for you bro. I used to believe I would find it difficult in getting a job because I have zero connection and come from a very humble background. Finished service last year November and got a job this month out of about 80 applicants, where less than 10 were selected after Aptitude test, Interview and Medicals.
In essence, put your hope in God and keep pushing sir, may God ease our affairs.

There is a reason for everything, I believe that God has a better offer for you very soon.

Don't stop pushing bro, I got to an advanced stage with nnpc about two years back but didn't get the job. I was equally depressed so I know how it feels.

Keep on being positive bro.
I have gotten an offer letter from Eko Atlantic for me to resume in a months time only for their director to call me to apologize that the management has stopped any recruitment immediately cos of buhari policy immediately he assumed office.
What can not kill you will definitely make you strong.
But if you can still gate crash to try your luck sha. You can never tell.
