Yea that's the main problem. CEP and pay is too closely tied to academic scores.

The job might require more critical thinking and hence the PT test. of course, i guess sometimes luck plays a part too, interviewer wise.

be confident in your abilities. know what you can do. you yourself know whats your capabilities as compared to others. dont give up hope!

I have a fear of corporate office, evident in my interview yesterday.
I have a fear of how strangers look at me.
I have a lack of confidence.
I already inform my family, please be mentally prepared I will take long to come out of it.
People tell me to lie in interviews, but i am not a good liar.
I was once fired like you, now doing pretty ok. Young man, forget what had happened, it over now, learn to be humble at work especially you are learning from others who had greater experience, be sincere, be not afraid of criticism and losing, btw you have nothing to lose when you are at starting stage. There is no absolute right or wrong decision, learn how to work with people, EQ.

Seem like you are in pretty bad stage now, go and get professional help. Heal yourself first.

Be positive about your future, learn to hope for better future.

Went for an interview the other day, the interviewers were very sharp, i think they can sniff out depressive episodes in me. Didn't get the job, when the recruiter called me, she had a sympathetic tone.

Anyone wants to have a modern day slave, like keep working nonstop type. I can do it. I need money to survive.

Maybe go overseas to find a living.
i think in the meanwhile you should do things that keep you happy, like hobbies. you sound like you are rushing, thinking that a next job will fix the problem. you will probably run into thr same problems again from the looks of things. perhaps in the meanwhile, maybe do some part-time work 2-3 days a week and give yourself some time to reorientate your life, say 6 months. you won't earn a lot but it is the healing process that matters. i wish u all the best buddy. if u cannot handle the depression yourself and havent seen a professional, please do.

My depression blinded me to see every negative, my inside world is like hell.... everything response from other, I take it totally negative.....all new tasks assigned to me I view it like punishment for disliking me...

See a doctor for help... get yourself cure from depression....
