It's a Dating job but someone's got to do it....

Do u realise how mentally strenuous dating is? The whole processw is like a Job interview from start to finish. Let us compare the two processes, Dating and Job hunting

Job application: You see dis potential "employer" you think you fit the job description, you size up the benefits and propects and think you can handle the responsibility and meet the requiremnets so you send in your CV. Some Employers have been serioulsy understaffed and they set up an interview immediately. However, some employers handle a lot of applications daily and so it may take a while and a bit of luck to get the call-back and the invitation for an interview. Before you get the call back you are tense and anxious, you think they've forgotten about you, you want to call them and remind them but you think it's too soon, you think they've thrown your CV in d Bin and you want to email them and ask if they still remember you, You are scared they've tucked ur application under the growing pile of candidates but you don't want to come off too strong so you hold ur peace...waiting...anxious.

The interview: What do you wear? what if you don't impress the employer? what if they don't like your CV? should you use cologne? The interview is one of the most nerve wrecking moments of self evalution and pretence you will ever go through. It's just you and intended employer and this is where they find out what you are really worth. Some pple lie here, some project exactly what they are worth while some simply fluster. It's not an interrogation but ur heart rate sometimes says otherwise. In your mind you are reviewing the job description and the potential benefits of landing the job and you'll do anything to impress the employer. Some employers will be very impressed wiv your presentation and you'll land an employement letter immdiately after the interview but some may need more time to scrutinize you so you'll be shorlisted for further assessment.

The second interview: Employers usually set up a second interview if theythey didn't go out wiv you or give you nookie after the first interview. The Second Interview is less tense but even more important, now you are getting closer to being hired and you can feel it. You smile a lot more, you feel less threatened by the assessment board and for those of you who are very confident you know that when you walk out of the room you'll either get an employemnt letter or one hell of a recommendation.

The employment letter: The official confirmation that you are in association wiv d employer, this may be on a contract basis ranging 4rm a one night stand to an open relationship or on an indefinite basis wiv the lifespan of ur contract based on your performance on the job and your ability to deliver on the promises you made in the interview stages. The employement letterwill describe yoru job role once again, the things expected of you and what the employer will do for you in return.

Your career: Now your career is based on the details in employement letter and can last between one night of meaningless passion to a lifetime of marital bliss/torture depending on ur work environemnt. Career progression is also a factor some employers will offer and you can go 4rm merely a platonic friendship to an intimate relationship and onwards. Employees are varied in nature, some pple work freelance and aren't tied down to one employer, some pple just can't take the pressure of the work environment and quit altogether while some build a career through diligence, hard work and understanding. In summary, we are all employees and employers in one way or the other, some are unemployed, some employed, some understaffed and some sacking, some working away 4rm headquarters and some working freelance and like every work environment dating and relationships can bite you in the posterior or be the most pleasurable thing in your life if you work for the right company.

if dating is a job...then what is marriage? A dead end job? or worse..a death wish??

Lady X said...

I agree with CC. That's the reason I'm scared of marriage! Dating someone is work not to talk of marriage. But maybe when you date someone and you don't feel like it's work, it's the real thing?
