How to Start the Day

14 Jun

There’s nothing like applying for jobs in the morning. The day is bright and beautiful, while you add your skills and experience. Imprint a little humour and creative use of words. Just to hint that you’re a funny, outgoing, smart, hardworking, team-player, independent, creative, experienced, social superstar of a human being. Then you send it, and it feels so good. Butterflies in your stomach. Imagining when they read it, they’ll nod to each other and say, wow, she’s got the right combination of funny, outgoing, smart, hardworking, team-player, independent, creative, experienced, social superstar skills. And then they’ll call you, and ask you to an interview the very next day. And it goes so well, so easy, so effortless and not awkward at all. Then you get a job.

In the morning, you can’t feel the disappointment that comes with not hearing from them at all. Except for a bloody rejection letter three months later.
