In life we are told to be stoic and take it like a man but I'm not one to follow rules because all rules are made by humans and humans without doubt are not sacrosanct, they can and should be broken they are afterall subjectivities of people's privilege and perception.
Hence that is the hiring process. I am with you if you feel angry, frustrated and fed up with the notion that your opportunity depends on the perception of a person who we know nothing of, how they slept, how their life is going and even how the view the perception of you. I have the height, black hair, skin color and the gender that is not really viewed as appealing. The long list of female rejections prove that.
Yet that is how the job market functions because our fate, hopes, desires or ambitions revolves others and that is really the unfairness of life because if it was not, obtaining employment would not be so difficult but it is. And though I know everybody does not have the same experience mine has been rather difficult and even more so now 20 years after graduating from higher education. Because if it was not subjective then the resumes would speak for themselves but they do not which makes me think it is about subjectivity, what others think of you and that is something no legislation, even the Civil Rights laws have not been able to remedy. Unless they need bodies and they hire you without considering the qualifications because the job can be completed with their training hence why education is not really relative unless it is a specific skill like a dentist or lawyer.
When the inability to impress people does not work one just needs to think like when in a club, you keep asking until someone says yes.
