Very pathetic question

This is a really stupid question, but have any of you ever not wanted to get a job out of fear that you would screw up somehow? I feel kind of embarrassed asking this, but I feel alone with these fears. Help?

I think that everyone has those fears. It is a natural fear. I just had a job interview last week for a job that I really want, but am not sure that I will take it should they give it to me as I am not sure that I am qualified. Natural fear reaction to the unknown.

Re: Very pathetic question

First of all, your question is not pathetic.

I just got my first job recently and I was very scared.

I walked into my interview and my face was red and I was so nervous. However, once you start, and then you get to know some of the people working there, everything gets a lot better.

Don't worry and have fun.

Re: Very pathetic question

Well, I had that fear when I got my first job...and now I'm almost 21 and two weeks ago, I didn't want to walk into my interview for a computer networking and tech job only because most of my co-workers at the company would be much older with more experience...so it happens more than once, even if it's not your first job.

Everyone does have these issues. I am 22 and have been working since I was 15. I mostly worked in the music business. In Sept. I change jobs over to be an insurence, now I was scared about doing somthing wrong because I have never done this field. Today things are going well for me and I have learned a lot.

You need to do the same..Even though you are scared this is the best time to get one so you can expierence a lot of things. Some of the prizes is knowing new people, gain responsibility, and respect.
