Fellow Reditporeans, this samurai is on the verge of a breakdown. (Not going to do anything foolish, but just crushed. Utterly crushed.) I am going to refrain from disclosing too much, especially given on a public platform like here …
I have been roaming around Reddit for fun & giving strangers emotional support (because benevolence is the code I get by) , but now it’s time for me to admit that I need help. for myself.
I’m in my 20s & I have been hunting for a job since Jan 2018. Have went for interview after interview … & I keep failing every single one of them. I wear the best attire, put on the best attitude … But cannot pass. Today having been informed I failed another one yesterday, I am just wondering if companies have discovered something horrible (i.e: a criminal record) in my background check so as not to hire me.
I confess: my life in childhood & adolescence had a lot of challenges (Illness, hardship, school struggles, etc) … I had severe anxiety disorder, social anxiety (all which were of many years past & not affecting me anymore) .. But there was once upon a time I had suicidal ideation bad enough to be admitted to SGH. I am just wondering if that is the culprit that prevents me from securing a job… Please advise. (Serious replies only. Thanks.)
