    So I’m a seasonal employee right and with that comes the down time called winter. Winter is quickly coming up on us and I’m worried because of the purchase of my Audi and my jet set life style. So I’m looking for some work because Pogie doesn’t help as much as I thought it would, so like many people in my broke ass hood I’m looking for work.
    I’ve applied to 7 to 10 jobs a day through the paper and monster.ca, it’s at like 320 jobs I’ve applied for in the last month with 12 CALL BACKS. I’ve been on five interviews and 3 have sucked the big one. I got a dope opportunity designing shoes, which are panning out but what the fuck!

    Lets hear your job hunting stories, stupid interview questions and general laughable shit that comes along with a new job!

    i avoid this shit at all costs....ive probably been at my latest job for a year and a half and most likely will stay for another year. the are quite a few good things keeping me there at the moment but on those really bad days, when i feel like faxing out my resume on my lunch break, the one thing that has me returning to work the next morning is the prospect of job hunting. i prefer nailing my scrotum to the floor personally....

    You knows worse, being told your over qualified for a job.WHAT THE FUCK? I'd be happy if someone that was a dental assistant wanted a job with me laying sod all day. It's cool to have some one around I can talk to with out saying "fuck'n rite bud" about a mustang driving by! So why not have me in your office doing data entry while I have a portfolio of art at home you'd die to have in your ikea mansion!

    it's all about who you know, and who they know, and all that. networking, connections...i applied for a ton of jobs, which all led nowhere, then i called my old boss, who put me in touch with my new boss, and i've been doing the gig ever since.

    so fucking true.

    and on top of that, the last "real" interview i went on, this guy analyzed the fuck out of me writing furiously and making comments on my handwriting (not how bad it was, just how he could tell of what kind of person i am through it) unlike most poeple, i almost never get intimidated and i can always seem to keep cool under the whole stupid pressure thing which im thankful for. and theyll always throw in stupid questions asking about your family and how well you get along. what kind of retard is going to say that he hates his family and is furious and rah rah rah. stupid fucking interviews fuck them i need to go back to school.

    Winter starts December 21st, so technically Santa would have a job for 4 days of winter.
