    your mom.

    you know, I can draw a line between business and my feelings and opinions and how I judge things don't have an effect on how I behave
    I'm patient, maybe too patient and I actually waited for a call that would have said me that I'm in or I'm out, well, that call never came, so you want me to speak nice about people who were afraid of telling me that I wouldn't get the job? he wasn't helping me at all, he just delayed everything(I noticed it when I spoke to the secretary, she helped me, but muppet? no)
    my approach sounds rediculous to you? how? because I tried to talk to the people, when I was at their places? because I was very nice and helpful?(you know what all the other people did? I know it, I spoke to some: they showed up, said "hello" and left, ofcourse my 1hour conversation must have been strange to them)
    there's a difference between what happened and how I behaved and how I felt and how I feel now, don't read too much into things, I hope you understand that and I'm sorry if my words were a bit vague :)

    no sh*t dude? :eek: ;)

    maybe I even showed too much effort, maybe they just wanted someone who came by, cleaned, cooked and wasn't interested in how they feel and stuff, who knows
    well, I don't care anymore, I'm through with them and know that I made my best, but that I'm not the kind of guy they were looking for(now I'm not pissed off, because I didn't get the job, which causes some extra work for me right now, I'm pissed off, because they didn't told me and would have never told me if I hadn't called and tried to reach them

    to my hair(because you guys obviously can't get enough of it ;)): it's not suuuper long and it's washed, I always wear washed clothes and don't stink, don't worry :D

    get a haircut and join the army, punk!

    seriously, would have been better if you didn't go for social service from the begining but try to get your t3 at first. from the guys i know who didn't serve in bundeswehr three of four had problems getting a place. but i guess you've allready heard this a lot of times.

    i've had similar problems when leaving army and waiting for my studies to start, the arbeitsamt was expecting me to provide at least five job application per month, or they would stop my payments (0,00 euro to be exact). i guess this stuff is pretty much typical german.

    problem is they get far more then enough applications for these jobs usually, so they will search for the more "serious" looking ppl most of the time. personality doesn't count, if you want the job cut your hair, get a 1000euro suit and carry your parteibuch, or you will hardly stand a chance. welcome to the 50's.


    easiest way to make a joke of yourself over here, honestly.



    ps: since i left army two years ago (best time of my life so fat btw) i didn't cut my hair once, and i for shure wouldn't for the single reason of somebody considering it unacceptable... to be honest if this were the case i would rather dye it lime green then cut it...

    I tried to get T3, but I'm build burly and they're looking for that type atm :hmm:
    yeah, the only guy I know without any problem with it is an active member of the SPD :p
    (I know some others who got places very easily too, because of connections)
    it sucks that you really have a better chance, if you're a member of a party(which I could never be)

    I don't want to be in the army for the same reason balton left :D

    you mean being stuck in an elite unit while you wanted a bureau job? Oh yes, that sucks.

    don't know why balton left, in the retrospective i call it my best time, but while i was there i was trying to get my t5 all the time. while my unit didn't have an easy time at all (our general was no more then two kilometers away, from what ive seen form other german/danish/polish/american units we actually learned something) i've got full respect for everybody going for social service... and sadly most intelligent womens seem to think the same :p

    tbh i would'nt care to much about these nine months... your studys/job will suck far more unless you have luck from the beginning. im currently visiting lessons with 600+ students and applying to tests with a 96 percent failure ratio... should have gone for politics from the begining, four years landtag equaling 6000 eure pension atm are nice nice indeed

    not shure about this, but i was one of three guys within the battailion to be actively offered an officers job (got my own squad after four month, never shouted at them once... they actually had more freetime then the other groubs all together). the main reason for me not to stay there was that i as a t3 would have no chance to stay in active service but get an bureau job without any chance of doing anything but carying papers from one room to an other..

    most of the nco weren't a problem, shure there were true *******s, but these were mobbed by the others and hardly stayed more then four years. if my time in army did teach me anything it is not judging ppl by the first look or by there degrees. my secondary source of income at this time was portraying the children/girlfrieds/women of my comrades/nco/officers.

    What do you mean with elite unit? :)

    DSO, paratroopers, combat divers, recon?

    depends on your officers. if your officer is proud of his french foreign legion trainig you'll have a much harder time then when you get to an more relaxed guy. what i noticed during my maneuvers was that most other units, be it polish germany, danish or american units were trained realy bad compared to what was expected from us. in the bundeswehr you can easily have an happy time, or you could be ass****ed to the extreme. when i was asked weather i would like to join army, navy or airforce i joined army, because i wouldn't be caserned all to far from home. nonetheless the unit i was sent to was located 600+ kilometers away from my home, proppably for the reason the officer didn't like my face.

    Look, I'm not German so I have no idea if how you acted is par for the course with people seeking these kinds of jobs, but as a Social worker who works with seniors, I can't say that I would be overjoyed to let you near any of my clients either based on what you wrote. I'm sure they want someone who is friendly, stable, and dependable. Now, I don't know you of course, but it certainly doesn't sound like you gave them much reason to think you were any of those things. And yes, how you dress, groom, and carry yourself are all things that people take into consideration when you apply for a job. Shocking news flash for you man, not everyone can tell that deep down you're a wonderful guy in a single job interview. It's up to you to convince them of that.

    so what? you think I was bitching around in front of them like I do in this thread?
    and it's not like I didn't show any interest(I asked them many questions to prepare myself for the job, next to the usual talk, it seemed like they expected a "hello, I'm the new guy, so you're ok with me? fine, bye") or that I gave signs that I didn't want to be there(and they were quite suprised that I shaked their hand, which don't seem to be common)

    btw. now I know why I had no chance to get the job: all the guys passed the jobs to their friends(maybe the muppet knew that, I think that's why he asked which guy gave me their number, the secretarian didn't seem to knew it, because she was very suprised that I didn't got the job, it seemed that I convinced her, even if I spoke to her about 1/5 of the time I spoke to the disabled people, don't think I'm a guy who thinks that everything will fall in his hands)

    how do you know that I didn't gave any reason to think good of me? all you know is that I was there and it was creepy to me(which I didn't show ofcourse), but that means ****
