When I joined, I was promised assistance at finding a job. The first six months I got three 'leads" that went nowhere. In order to avoid communicating with me further, she sent me a list of businesses in my field with their contact information.
Um, yeah, fuck you, this list is hundreds of businesses long and I'm NOT going to sit there and dial each and every fucking one to figure out whether or not they're even hiring. It's YOUR job to find people who are looking. That's what I was promised.
I didn't hear from that career councilor again until the end of six months when she pawned me off to someone else.
This one attempted for a few months, got me a temp job, then didn't contact me again for months. When I got on her case, her feeble excuse was "no one looking in your field." Yeah bullshit. You mean you didn't even look.
When I showed up to talk to her face to face, she suggested I use Craig's list to find jobs. Uh, fuck that. I know the horror stories, and they've been in the news so I KNOW they're not hoaxes. People get robbed at gunpoint. People get put into the hospital. SOME PEOPLE HAVE BEEN MURDERED! I'm not putting myself in danger like that, even if some people "swear by it."
So now there's no peep from her, and I'm on an email list that just gives links to websites where you can job hunt. WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU THINK I'VE BEEN DOING FOR THE PAST YEAR WHILE YOU SAT ON YOUR ASS?!
If you weren't going to do your job and give me actual help, I wouldn't have gone to Heald in the first place! But of course, they would never say that. Better to sucker somebody in with false promises so they owe you money, to their mind.
May all your companies Actually do what they promised,
