(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #238 - Chronicles of alienated labor: "Hey, you smiled! "Clemence, unemployed" by Lise Gaignard. (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 10 May 2014 23:26:06 +0300

"Well, you smiled! "Clemence[1], unemployed" ---- Tuesday morning 9am. After receiving two invitations to two different dates and opted for the first, I headed "my" Pôle emploi, stuck in the middle of an industrial area. I arrived in the lobby, and after waiting a quarter of an hour, a lady greets me and asks me if I brought my "small identity card". Not being my first appointment, I did not think to bring. I explained that I did not but I have my call and my card Pôle emploi. She wants nothing to do and requires my identity card, "otherwise, we can do nothing". She suggested that I go home, I explained to him that I might miss my appointment. She replies that it is not serious and that I will have to wait until my counselor is available again for having me later in the morning. And as I am unemployed, I have nothing else to do of course. Half an hour later I'm back with my little identity card. She rummages through his papers and finds that, indeed, she did not need since I do not was my first appointment only.

So I sit on a chair to wait for "my" counselor. She finally arrives and invites me into his office. I explain why I'm late, she does not care and made me realize that all this would have been easier if I had had on me my identity card. The appointment is a real torture. My resume is very bad. Look at this presentation she said. And this picture then, that as nothing to put it. Frankly, I see that I do not call you, she connects. I also learn that sending applications it serves no purpose except to feel good and that the most important thing is to get interviews! Even if there is no offer I asked? Yes, even if there is no offer. I lack choked when trying to send me forcing techniques worthy of VRP most clumsy who worked for her so she does not see why they would not work for me.

At the end of the interview, she looks at me and says "Hey, you mouse! Not because from the beginning you do not smile at all. You know, it is very important to smile at a first meeting, the first contact is very important! ". A few days later, I receive an e-mail telling me that because of my absence to visit last Tuesday, I risked radiation.
