How to get a job without looking like a dick

I had the opportunity to spend a month at a new company and I felt a little stupid.

I was in a small room, surrounded by people and I wasn’t wearing a jacket or shirt.

I’m not a dick.

That’s what I was supposed to be.

But that wasn’t enough to help me feel like I was doing anything.

I wanted to do something to help people and get their confidence back.

I felt like I needed to be a dick, so I went looking for the perfect job.

When I got to a recruiter, I felt so awkward.

He looked at me and asked: ‘How tall are you?’

And I said, ‘I’m 5’9”.

He said: ‘You’re not a dude?’

And he laughed and said: ”You’re a woman.

I know you’re not, are you?”

I felt bad.

I didn’t know how to respond.

I thought: ‘Oh, I’m a dick now.

I feel like a guy.’

I was embarrassed, and I didn’t want to be around this person again.

I ended up dropping out of the program.

I had no confidence in myself and I was afraid to ask for a job.

After the experience, I have never been a dick in my life.

I’ve been a good friend and I’ve found happiness in being a good person.
