Default Inability to get a job

Hello hello,

My inability to get a job is really really getting me down now.
I do volunteer work but find that even that stresses me out because I have to talk to people and I just feel completely useless and rubbish!

I am just not qualified for anything/ I don't have to personality to get jobs with people. I want to be loud

I really wonder how people do jobs! A lot of people have jobs and I don't understand how they do them! How do you interact with people all day long?

sorry I am frustrated
gah

I feel like I can't get a job too. I do have this 5hrs a week job, but obviously I need something more, and I can't get it. I have to fake being normal at the interview and I must not do a very good job and can't make my voice loud enough. It's so annoying how I have to try to act in some artificial way, because I know that if they know I'm scared of people, I have no chance of getting the job.

Same here.
I have to sell my house soon. That's just so ****ing great, and I'm in no way depressed about that [/sarcasm].

We can't get a job because we suck. And because most people get jobs trough connections.. or even by being really extroverted and super confident and having non-foregin names and generally being "perfect".

I want to get a job but i am afraid of talking to people but, when i talk to people i start to panic really really bad. Sometimes i cant speak properly and i just get the urge to walk away.

I have the same problem. I've done volunteer work but now I need a real job to support myself. I know the only way I can do that is when I conquer my SA.
