Me & My Muse – Day 282: Job Impossible

If I were James Bond, this would be easy.  Infiltrate the place of employment, get captured and interrogated by the manager and get a job offer.  Easy, right?

There is only one problem.  I am not James Bond.  Even if I was, being a secret agent would pay a lot higher than your standard job.

But I don’t have to be Bond to have a successful interview.  All I need are the right “gadgets” to ensure that my interview is a success.  Right clothes?  Check.  List of questions?  Check.  Extra resume?  Check.  Arriving at the business 15 minutes early?  Check.

There is no denying it.  I am landing a full-time job and I’m not taking no for an answer.  To refuse me would be making a big mistake, as they are turning down the most qualified candidate that they will be able to find.  A candidate with great potential for growth.  And a drive and desire that far surpasses any other candidate.  I’m almost 30, so I want that job that much more than anyone else.

This is turning into a hard sell for a potential employer.  A desperate attempt to lift the veil off their eyes and for them to see that the ideal candidate is right in front of them.  If it is a hard sell, let it be so.  The employer needs to know how hard of a worker I am and the level of tenacity I possess.

Have I ever missed a day doing this “Me & My Muse blog” since I started it? Now it’s granted that every day is not going to have the same level of quality.  Life happens.  I have other things to do.  This blog takes a back seat.  While it may be the back seat, this blog never misses the bus.

I will re-emphasize my point.  I don’t take no for an answer.  If one employer refuses me, I go to the next one.  And this process will be repeated until I am fully employed.  Afraid of Obamacare?  Don’t let that trample your hopes of hiring what could potentially be your best candidate.  It’s too expensive to hire someone else full-time.  No it’s not.  That’s an excuse.  Cut some expenses somewhere else in the budget and hire that employee!  I don’t take no for an answer.  I have received numerous rejection letters.  These rejection letters could’ve possibly been from your business.  Have employer bias?  Are you afraid that the candidate that you select will be the wrong choice?  Well, allow me to liberate you from your anxieties.  I am qualified and I am able.  I am teachable and I learn fast.  I’m a self-starter that always finishes.  A goal-driven individual that always delivers.  An effective communicator and an amazing leader.  A creative thinker.  A planner.  A dreamer.  Always early and never late.  Always ready but never unprepared for the job.  These are only but a few of the qualities that I can think of off the top of my head.

In terms of employment, I am currently working at a pizza restaurant.  I am working on getting a management position there.  While the job isn’t that profitable, the skills that I have learned have been quite profitable.

Getting back to the mission, James Bond can keep his job.  I will use his “gadgets” to make my mission a success.

I will search for new missions and undergo the interrogations until I hear the words “You’re Hired”.

I don’t take no for an answer, and neither should you.  After what I have already said, you should go for it.  Give this candidate a chance, allowing him to begin a new chapter in his life.  A chapter that he’s been waiting to see written for the longest time.  The chapter that reads “Full-time Employment”.


Ghost Muse:  Do you think that an employer is really going to read all of this?

I hope that they do.  They really need to understand how badly I need a full-time job.

Ghost Muse:  I understand how bad you need a job, but what if that were to backfire?

If it does, I’m no better off than when I began, right?  I don’t take no for an answer.  I will try every other employer until one says yes.

Ghost Muse:  Corporations may not say yes if they were to read this.  Maybe a smaller employer….

Big or small, they need to look at the candidate.  The candidate needs to have the drive, right?  And I have plenty of that.

Ghost Muse:  Well, good luck.  I don’t know if any employer is going to see this, but it’s worth a try.  Time to check on Remedy.  His cure is almost done!


Well, there you go.  A piece about finding a job with a secret agent twist.  As for writing, there’s plenty more where that came from….

Today’s high is going to be 43 degrees and the silver lining is having the whole day to accomplish my “mission”.

To those of you who are still trying to find full-time employment, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Tee hee!  Playing with that snowman was fun yesterday!  This pretty giant ball would make a nice playground!  Pretty soon, I will buy it and it will be mine!  Tee hee hee hee hee!!!!
