.. who are able to decide whether or not I am eligible for consideration for a job or not? I mean these bloody recruitment 'consultants'. Every job requires experience, even though I could do it blindfold. If I'm not already doing it, I'm no good. As if I'm too stupid to learn. I'm assessed as a person... my whole life, my personality, my gifts, my knowledge, my experience... by a three page CV. And nothing else. Nothing about my priorities, my values, the things I've seen and known (across four continents), my intuitive understandings, the way I relate to people, where my heart lies. Nothing, in other words, about me. These damn fascistic demagogues that declare their right to determine my right to be considered for any given roles in society. I hate these bastards with a loathing that borders on the psychopathic. They drive to me to apoplexy. The control they have. With no permission from me. Who am I sending my CV to, with all it's personal details? A name on a webpage, with no acknowledgement or response. Could be anyone harvesting marketing material. I apply for a job and hear nothing. I feel like a piece of meat, surrendering myself to a mincing machine. They're leeches. Bloodsucking middlemen. I regard them with contempt and, as I sit here weeping into my rum, facing homelessness despite two masters degrees, 30 years commercial experience, a breadth of knowledge and world awareness that could only be described as unusual, and a iq that only 1% of the population could achieve, I truly hope that one day each and every one of them, 'recruitment consultants' I mean, suffers the same fate.
