So there’s this project that teamed up with my school’s ROP program that allows students to do a paid internship next semester. The project would assign us to different hospitals to work in and get a feel of what the medical field is. Of course, I wanted this internship because this is an opportunity that wouldn’t be coming up very often.
I think I did well; I dressed well, all formal and business like. I said that I really wanted to be a part of the program because it would be a push for my career choice, and a good thing to show me what it’s like to work in a hospital. I also told them that I’m very punctual, and being on time is very crucial, especially in a profession workplace. They asked about my academics, and I’ve maintained a 3.0 since 7th grade. I told them that I want to be surgical tech and I want to attend college either in the LA or Bay Area. I thought I did well.
But I thought I did well.
It turns out that they wanted less motivated students who would greatly benefit from the program. But it doesn’t make sense. I had thought that they wanted the best of the best. But obviously not.
I wanted to cry because this is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I didn’t get it.
This is something I really wanted but I didn’t quite get there.
They’re having more interviews but I’ve been placed on a waiting list. I don’t even know if they’ll even reconsider my application if thats how they’ll choose.
I find this complete and utter bullshit.
