Today I had one of the most humiliating experiences in my life. I was let go from my new job. They did not think I was a "good fit". I did not enter information fast enough and have not learned to do the job to their requirements. There was more, very non-specific stuff that he said - I was so stunned that I didn't really take it in.
I am so embarrassed and trying hard not to feel like a complete loser. I am not quick on the keyboard, I never really learned to type. I had not realized it was causing problems. Apparently I was not communicating things properly or to the right people or in the right way - it was not made clear with any examples and no one had corrected me at any point. So I guess the statement that I was not a "good fit" for them is apt because I did not see this coming.
Is it just possible that I am not employable? That I don't have the skills and mind set to operate in today's workplace? I know I am very good at the customer/client interactions, but that is not enough. I have a lot of education but few skills called for in the workplace now. I am outdated and feel very uncertain of my future. Actually, I have felt that way for a long time. Getting this job seemed so lucky and now I have lost it.
