Job Rejection

I found out today that I did not get the job. They said it was due to the high qualified applicants that applied. My feelings right now are a mix of disappointment, sadness and anger. I do feel like they should have hired me. I know that other people might have been more qualified, but I bet anything that I was more passionate.

It is my opinion that for non-technical jobs, abilities do not vary greatly. I feel that most people could have completed the tasks required by that position. Of course, some people would need to be trained a little bit longer, but in the end, they would be able to do whatever was necessary. I am confident that I would have been able to do that job. Ability, I do not think is the key. Passion is the key. Passion is what separates the good and the great. They should have hired me because my passion would have given me the strength and creativity to contribute greatly to their cause.

Although I am sure my relationship with them is not over, I wish I had the stability of a job right now. My current plan is to fly back home to LA and write that book. I will probably be unemployed for the next two months so that would allow me to focus. I might apply to graduate school next year, I still have not decided.

Because I did not get that job, I am not satisfied with my previous year.
