What happened to all people who interviewed me for jobs? What happens to all applications and resumes? Do they go to that great resume/application cloud in sky or are they shredded into a million tiny pieces never to be seen again.

There are probably others out there who fill same way. Fear not, there is a job or profession out there with your name on it. If you really canít find a good paying job you can always go into business for yourself. Remember, someone made millions selling pet rocks.
