But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Job search not going well.

Have had some interviews...one place wanted someone who could be with them as long as their former bookkeeper - 30 years - yeah, probably not.

Yesterday I had an interview at a place where I would really like to work. The owner was emailing me up until 7:30 last night, even asked when I could start.

Today the recruiter called and said he hired a person he interviewed today. Undecided

I have one more paycheck coming and no prospects.

This sucks.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Tell them you will work for them forever. There's no way they can call you a liar, if anything happens downstream. It is unlawful for an employer to insist on the longevity of your employment. Not that that helps you any.

Then it their loss, though that doesn't help you much. All I ever ask in a (fellow) employee is competence and don't fuck with me. I worked at a major corporation for decades, and those expectations never seemed to be what management had in mind. We could have gotten at least twice the work done if people quit screwing around and did their jobs. Before the internet, it was reading books, and just plain goofing off instead of doing their jobs. My wife works at the corporate office of a major bank, and she sees people sitting there watching sports and movies all day on their cell phones. She wouldn't normally see it, but they are all packed into little cubicles where one can see into the next what a person is doing. How those people don't get canned on the spot is beyond me.

No one stays at a job for 30 years these days. They're fooling themselves. Remind your prospective future employer of that and ask them if they want a position filled with a revolving door of wet-behind-the-ears employees for the next thirty years, or one stable, loyal employee with 30 years of experience?

FWIW, when I got laid off from my aerospace job in '91, I interviewed at a dealership for a mechanic job that I was overqualified for. The interviewer (the service manager) told me straight up that he wouldn't hire me because the minute the job market turned around, that I would leave. As if any other person interviewing for that job wouldn't do the same, given better circumstances!
