It’s the wee hours of Saturday. By all rights, I should be in bed. Apparently, I do not have the good sense to go to bed, though and keep combing job sites, looking for things I am qualified for and applying for jobs. (And then coming here to blog about it).
I actually have quite a bit to get done this weekend that does not involve looking for work. I know I will feel like a slacker, but there comes a time at which you have to get a grip and realize that you are doing all you can do and then you just… let go.
This week was REALLY slow in the job hunt department as far as interviewing and contact with potential employers. I suppose there is the fact that I have been out of work for 2 months so I am being viewed as “damaged goods” because, of course, if I was any good at what I do, I would have gotten a job right away. This is, of course, a fallacy. I am being selective about what I apply for (to a point). I don’t want to take backwards steps, I don’t want to take a job I know I will not enjoy and I really don’t want to have to worry about getting two jobs (because finding ONE job is proving enough of a challenge). But, being a realist, I know that if I don’t find something that I WANT soon, I will have to settle for whatever is offered. That does not make me happy.
I need to print out a bunch of stuff so I am probably going to need some ink cartridges soon. It’s insanity, I tell you. But, what do I expect at this hour of the morning, really?
And, with that being said, I think I will actually try to go and get some sleep.
(Except that I am going to take a minute to, once again, complain about the trend of contact simply ceasing when the job is not going to be offered. I took the time to interview, it would be COURTEOUS if you, Mr./Ms. Employer could take a few seconds to send me a quick email saying “Never again darken our doorstep” so I can quit wondering if I have a chance. Break up with my via text message, if you must, but at least COMMUNICATE YOUR LACK OF INTEREST with some sort of WORDS and not just complete and total SILENCE! Thank you and Good Day! or, ummmm…Good Night!)
