I just found out that this completely stupid inexperienced twat face got this really awesome office job at my local university that pays really well, like way better than graduates normally get first out of university, even more than people with law degrees fresh out of uni.
I am absolutely fuming, because I’ve been job searchign since I was made redundant in March and I didn’t see this job listed back in August when it would have been advertised.
I’m so qualified for this position, I have the required IT skills, I have 10 years of admin experience, I have all the organisational, time management and communication skills required, and I missed this job.
And that’s not just why I’m pissed, but I know the person they gave the job to, an they are the most unfocused, unorganised, easily distracted person I’ve ever known, and they don’t have any admin experience let alone the specific IT requirement. One of the selection criteria was also have have an actual degree, and I know they got the job before they graduated, AND they took 10 years to get their degree instead of the usual 3 (in Australia). This person has worked in hospitality their entire life and gets their jobs by flirting with the managers. And somehow they managed to write not only good enough selection criteria, which I still struggle with sometimes, but managed to convince the interview panel that they were qualified for the job when they clearly are not.
And they are earning SO MUCH MONEY. over half again from what I was earning at my IT job, which, I have to admit, is kind of my fault, because I low-balled myself.
HINT WHEN SOMEONE ASK HOW MUCH MONEY YOU WANT, DO NOT THINK THEY MIGHT SAY ‘OH NO, WE’LL PAY YOU MORE THAN THAT’. YOU NEED TO FIGHT FOR A GOOD WAGE.
And i can’t understand how this totally unqualified, un-graduated person could get such a great job when they are literally the worst employee ever.
I’m sick of watching other people walk into nice jobs with good wages when I’m struggling so much right now.
They other thing that really annoys me is this person always used to complain when I wouldn’t go out with them because I didn’t want to spend hundreds on booze, and they always expected other people to pay just because they’re ‘pretty’ (or whatever). I was trying to save money and thank god I did because I’ve had unstable employment this year. And now they’re out of a minimum wage job and into one that’s earning even more than a regular job of this type AND IT IS SO FRUSTRATING.
HOW DID THEY GET THIS JOB? HOW? HOW?
- No experience
- Easily distracted, confused, and unfocused
And all my job interviews are telling me I don’t have ‘enough’ experience or ‘the right kind of experience’ or ‘the other candidate had more relevant experience.’
Why is the universe doing this to me? What did I ever do wrong?
