Surprise!

I finally got a job. The thing is after so many interviews and so many rejections I felt basically unemployable and hopeless. The last interview I did I felt like I was on autopilot, uninspired, flat and dull. I imagined moments after leaving the interviewers mocking me and laughing at my CV as they toss it in the bin. Much to my surprise they called me the next day! I almost called them back to make sure it wasn't a joke. There is no moral to this story. Job interviews fucking suck and good luck and godspeed to anyone out there looking.

It's a stressy work world, you are probably replacing a COVID hole which brings its own stress. Co workers may be more aloof than you're used to. Good luck!

Ya I’m pretty sure employers realized people hopped on Adderall and uppers... well they burn out mighty fast. Slow and steady wins the race. Shame on these psychiatrists.

Going through the same right now, except for the getting hired bit.
Job hunting is always a depressing experience, just like you described.
Good luck with everything!

It's been my experience

That displaying a cavalier, lighthearted, I could take it or leave it kind of attitude in interviews leads to job offers.
