Why can't I get a fucking job

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

hr person e-mailed me, telling me I was one of three finalists for two staff photographer positions at a well-sized paper. e-mailed her back with available times for phone interview (anytime), and of course no response.

Yeah I've sent off tonnes of CVs for shit I have experience for and could easily do. No such luck. It's fucking depressing.

at least. easily more in certain industries. this is your biggest problem.

i'm sure you are already considering this but is there someone in your personal network who might be able to help? don't ask everyone you know. be strategic and think about your closer friends and their families. asking people to help you find a job is the worst, but you'd be surprised how many people actually get off on this. being the connector. make clear to them that you'd be happy to do informational phone calls/interviews.

in this economy, you need a relationship plain and simple. and if you don't have one you need to try and build one. honestly it can be as simple as calling the HR contact at some point in your exchange rather than emailing. to clarify something or ask a question, whatever. HR people wield a lot of fucking power in this process. if you can show them how much you care and make them laugh or otherwise be endearing, it can go a long way. you need to be more than a piece of paper and every little bit helps. personality and chemistry are every bit as important as qualification, especially so with HR. they are vetting thru that filter.

i also wouldn't rule out delivering your resume in person. depending on the type of job/company this could be awkward and totally inappropriate, other times it's totally fine and can help you start the relationship/give you some distinction. use your judgment.

also, do hella deep research on anyone you might be talking to. i'm talking stalker level. learn every fucking thing you can about this person.

dress well and look your best.
