I was venting a bit in chat yesterday, with what started out as a minor comment about something that frustrated me: How at job interviews you're asked about your personality, and you have to be an "outgoing" person etc, and talk yourself up. I said this is not fair and they should not fucking do that. It turned into a discussion, and I started being actually frustrated, because no one was listening to what I was saying. It was like talking to a wall. People said it was fair, I said that it shouldn't matter, they said it should, I said that with that system I would never get a job because I am not outgoing and I do not like talking myself up. They kept insisting that it should be that way. They said a lot of weird things about how it didn't matter, I said how does it not matter, they said "it does matter!" etc, frustrating and confusing and contratictions galore. Basically they all agreed how good the job-interview system is, which is the same as agreeing it is good I will never get a job. That pissed me off. Anyways, my issue is with the job-seeking-system. They should not ask me about my personality, they should not require me to talk about what a great person I am, how easy I am to get along with, how quickly I connect with people etc, because I am introverted and I don't see that changing anytime soon. They should STFU about my personality and just ask if I can do the job. My personality type will never land me a job. So the system is unfair. I do not appreciate people saying this IS fair.
