I have been interviewing for the past few months. I will get thru various stages of the interview process (initial interview, several plus assessments, final), then hear "thank you but no thank you." I will state that I am trying to change careers because I am completely burnt out from my last job (food sales). I don't want to go back to that industry (or any type of sales) but it seems like I may have to. And that thought actually brings tears to my eyes because I hate it. But I need to work. So, on top of feeling that I'm not good enough, I have to try to go back to waking up unhappy every day. I guess this is what adulthood really is, huh? Thanks for listening.
Edit: Please know that I NEVER say in any interview that I am burnt out from sales; only that I am looking to change direction and use all of my skills in a new way. As I said, just venting. Thanks!
