It's been over 9 months since I last worked. I finally found a job in my field (xray) and applied and interviewed for it. The interview went so well, they even did a drug test. I really thought I was going to get it.
Just found out today that they interviewed one other person and he had experience in an orthopedic office, so he was better suited for the job.
I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up, but I did. It had been so long since I interviewed, and I really want to be working again.
Now I'm sad. I feel rejected, and I just don't know when I'm going to get a job again. I'm tired of leaning on my parents financially, tired of not having money, not being able to do anything. It just sucks, and I don't see an end in sight. I've applied at retail jobs, haven't heard back, and just don't know where else to look.
