Overqualified, and too good -- 03.21.12
 
Well, I didn't get the job. Apparently I was passed over because I’m “too good” and my talents would be “wasted” at that position. Oh, and that I was “overqualified” for that position. I call major bullshit. You’re either qualified or you’re not. I was not. Don’t give me some cock and bull story that I’m SO great that they would rather use me somewhere else. Hey, it’s my business if I want this job even if it does waste my skills. Why? Pay raise bitches! I need the money. I didn’t try to get this mother-fucking job because it’s my lifelong dream. I wanted it because it would have paid me more money.

The person who got the job is the least qualified of the candidates. How she got the job I’ll never know. That job was MINE to lose, and it turns out I wasn’t even in the running. This isn’t sour grapes, but I’ve worked with this person for three years and I know her. She doesn’t have the skills to do this job. But whatever. Let my bosses find this out for herself. I can’t take this personally, because I know I’m liked more than her. So yeah, I guess that means she was more qualified. But wait, I was overqualified. Oh... that makes me feel a “LOT” better. Fuck!

End Communication.
