    Exactly. I would count on it as being a practice interview, although really I think your best long-term bet is to collect some unemployment and look for jobs not in Hawaii/finance.

    That right there would be a bonus. If I got called for a random I would get my wish of losing my job and probably not get severence if that were the case. Thank goodness we are cutting back on overhead costs and they haven't pulled any randoms lately.

    I work for HUD, dealing with people affected by Katrina/Rita.

    Ike and Gustav just got our contract extended until 2010. After which I'll probably transfer over to Blue Cross/Blue Shield.

    So. How do you find a job with very close to no work experience, a worthless incomplete education in film & video, no professional contacts, no real skills (including social ones), no confidence, and a hatred for the general public that isn't fast food or the like? Because I can't figure this shit out.

    Also, are technical schools for picking up professional computer skills a good idea? What technical fields are tolerable/well-paying?

    I went to a technical school and learned all I could about computer programs that were available at the time (14 years ago so we are talking Lotus123 ugh). I also picked up computerized accounting and am now doing pretty well for myself, although I am bored out of my mind but it has helped me and the kids survive for the last 14 years.

    Let me take an opportunity to mention how much online applications with those personality tests really truly are the work of soulless hatemongers intent on killing all joy in the world. I nearly have a nervous breakdown every time I fill one out. Does anyone know what kind of answers they're looking for? Do they expect you to lie to make it seem like yr a model worker or does it make you seem like a psychopath?

    you can't fake a personality test. they rig them so that they ask you the same question 10 different ways so that when you lie it knows it. I use to give out those tests to new applicants here when I did a brief stint in the HR department and we prefered candidates that were honest to those who were trying to be shady.

    Not the best of times in a lot of industries. The capital fuck up is definitely affecting production. i was mentioning to a co-worker today "apparently we should be grateful we have jobs". A production assistant who was there getting something from us followed by telling us she hasn't worked in 2 months. my place of employment is still getting jobs, but compared to Fall seasons past, the commercials are way off. Tough time to be looking in LA.

    why would you want to fake a personality test? wouldn't you rather be honest and work somewhere where your personality fits? sometimes they are looking for certain strengths for a team. if you have leadership qualities, that's great, but if they have a department full of leaders who just need to you process shit all day, that may not work. be honest.
