So I know I can't be the only one feeling this way. My problem is that I feel like I'm kind of dumb and incompetent, so coworkers/bosses/customers get mad at me. I was never in danger of failing in school, I've always been an A/B student and I was in GT and NHS so I know I'm not entirely dumb. I'm currently a senior in college and am trying to find a new job to get started working after I graduate, but I feel like my social incompetence will make it difficult if not impossible. I misinterpret people and get confused easily. I try my best to do what is asked of me, but I always end up doing things incorrectly somehow. It doesn't matter much to me what job I have or how much money I make, I just want to be able to get a job where I can do a decent job and not frustrate everyone and make their jobs harder. I also really want to stop being dependent on my parents for money, but I have no idea how to find a job that I'm capable of doing that will pay me enough to support myself. If anyone has any advice or just wants to talk about how frustrating this is if you're dealing with it too, please share.
I'm pretty shy and I have gone for many interviews, I think as cheesy as this sound you need to have some confidence in yourself when going for the job, if you lack confidence in your own ability at doing stuff in interviews this might come across in interviews. However if you are just out of college and going for jobs then don't feel too bad if you make a mistake everybody does, the best thing is that you learn from your mistake and don't let it make you feel far worse in yourself as a result, if you're new to any job you will probably make mistakes and that's an inevitable part of any job so don't feel too bad about it.
