    Brian, a newly graduated sociologist

    I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct. I believe that my sentences do not sound natural.


    Brian, a newly graduated sociologist, became deeply disappointed after he had not received a single offer for an interview, despite sending his applications to dozens of different institutions. He could not believe that employers could ignore him and were not interested to know about his knowledge and abilities.

    Perhaps:

    ...and did not want to know about his knowledge and abilities

    Or:

    ...and did not care about his knowledge and abilities

    Or:

    ...and were uninterested in his knowledge and abilities

    Or:

    ...and did not want to find out more about him

    Or:

    ...and were uninterested in learning about his knowledge and abilities

    Maybe one of those will work.
