Are You Going to Hire Me, or Not?
I’ve had two job interviews within the last week, and I was not hired for either job. The most recent job I interviewed for, a marketing company did not even hold my interest as I was being interviewed. Absolute Marketing is a company that holds events at electronic stores such as, Best Buy and Fry’s, and Sam’s Club. They are responsible for selling DirectTV memberships. I was immediately skeptical because I was contacted for the job, instead of the normal “apply and contact”. Interviews were held on the same floor as a law firm in Culver City’s Corporate Pointe, near the Fox Hills Mall. The interview who’s name I immediately forgot (Alex?!?) told me they are looking for people they can hire and began to train as managers. I am not sure why they need managers if the job is for marketing. Whatever. Alex also mentioned to me that Absolute Marketing was under a lot of pressure from DirecTV to produce sales and that is where they needed my help. I respectfully declined.
The first job I applied for, Dog Haus Beirgarten is a cool concept fast food place that serves Hot dogs, Sausages, and Hamburgers, as well as a full bar and stage for live music.
I love a good chili dog with onions and jalepenos. Yums!
Live music is oh so fun!
Dog Haus was my number one place to work. I prayed hard to work here because I wanted a fast pace, yet flexible job that would not interfere with school. I waited about a day, and while sitting in my Cinema 3 class (History of Motion Picture) I got the news that they hired someone else. I will admitt, I was very upset, so upset that I left class half an hour early because I could not concentrate. I absolutely knocked out that interview, answering all of their questions and letting them know my availability was very open. Here I am sitting in the library of LACC expressing my pain over not getting the job that I wanted. I’m sure you have been there, too. But while I may be disappointed at being rejected I must, as always, press on and continue to put myself out there for employers. One of them will be a taker.
