I'm a #PhD of #Psychology and work #psychologist at the Swedish National Employment Service. I have a keen interest in #PhilosophyOfPsychology, #PhilosophyOfMind, #CriticalPsychology, #HistoryOfPsychology and #Phenomenology. I blog (in #Swedish) at https://fenomenologen.se. Is that enough as an #introduction?
I meant "I was refused…"
They want to hire me.
Everyone in #Umeå talk about this magical place at the Baltic Sea called Kont. I've lived here for 20 years. Today was the first time I visited the place; @Linuxtjej and I had a simple picnic dinner there.
It was nice, sure, but pretty underwhelming given all the talk. It reminded me of the western Sweden archipelago, only smaller, more pines and the sun in the wrong direction.
I didn't even use my camera much.
We made a trip to Bäcksjön near Umeå. We had lunch by the lakeside. A gentle breeze prompted av improviserad solution to be able to play Uno.
I sent them an email and retracted my application.
Then they said I could do 40% distance work, despite the fact that I had clearly stated, in my application, that my conditions were at least 60% distance work. Then they went completely silent, as if that was unexpected.
This was a complete joke of a job interview. I felt as I was part of a group assignment on an introductory personnel management course.
I just had the most amateurish job interview I've ever experienced. They started by insulting me. Then they kept on talking about how great the workplace is, despite the fact that it was reported to the Swedish Work Environment Authority because of severe work environment problems. Then they asked what I do in my spare time. No question about my profession as a psychologist.
