Unemployman vs The Trial Shift
I recently did a trial shift at a cafe because I wanted to get a real job and be a real person, whilst getting some experience in that particular area. Most of the day was spent listening to people tell me how slow and inexperienced I was (which in all fairness was true, but I could have done without the constant reminding), sweating and feeling anxious. At the end of the day I was completely miserable, but it did force me to figure out what I really wanted to do – I took comfort in the fact that although I may not be able to carry a tray of lattes very swiftly, I do know what meringues are made of. Needless to say I didn’t get the job, what a relief!
