Reliable sources not yet addled with Alzheimers and dementia tell me that you could go from job to job once upon a time in the West. If there was a job available and you were first to get to the employer and you looked reasonable, bam! you have a job. Clearly times have changed for better and worse. I’m not here to say I wished I were alive in the 60’s (although I doubt that would have been a terrible thing).
My problem is that getting a job is a terrific bore. Even the most menial shitty jobs that require zero learning beforehand seem to require some sort of personality test, brain scan and stamp of medical approval before you come on board “for a trial period”.
Then you try and get a proper adult person job and the whole process is even more horrific. I understand employers wanting the ‘right’ person on board but it’s at a point where the prospect of even searching for a job is hellish – that’s if there are any jobs available, the robots haven’t taken over yet.
Anyone else share in this burdensome modern job hunt where being yourself just doesn’t seem to be quite enough?
