I also don't know what kind of jobs I'm suitable for anymore

Perhaps you can remove this coy from your resume at least you wont need to explain to them

Before interviews maybe you can do a rehearse so that you will know what to say before hand

What specialist skill do you have e.g. acct , hr , logistics

Cannot remove because I worked there for longer than 3 months

Yes, maybe I need to rehearse with someone, good idea

No specialist skills at all, and my generalist skills also like not very good

I feel terrible when looking for jobs. Many times, the job that I REALLY wanted always comes after I signed acceptance offer with another job role.

Can someone tell me how do you guys manage this? Do you guys just let go or throw letter and join that dream job?
