I think job hunting and interviews are like dating. When you get introduced through friends you have more success. You have to go through so many to find the right one. You either click right away, everything goes smooth and you book the second date or everything goes wrong and you get ghosted. After the first date you meet the friends. But you have to win them over to continue. No matter how careful you are choosing, most people end up breaking up after 1-2 years to have different experience.

This is so accurate. If everything goes well, you might meet your soulmate and stay with them forever. But chances are high even if you stay together for a while, you'll end up divorcing when you change and get older lol.

We can keep going, and it would still work.
Some people like to stay in long-term relationships, some don't like commitment and want to play and see what’s out there (freelancer), and some date multiple people at the same time (double-dipping as a freelancer). 😂

I also think conceptual creative’s job (art and copy) is very similar to actors. I will start a new post about it.

So beyond frustrated with this job market! Had an owner reach out about a CFO role last month, went through his ridiculous interview process spending ~10 hrs total. Only to be turned down due to “not enough experience”

He contacts me again weeks later - his Controller left during the search for CFO and now he has no finance dept. We talked and he wanted to extend an offer by EOW. Followed up after a week and he’d been introduced to another candidate, decided to go with her instead. What gives!?
