I feel like an idiot. That interview I had last week? The one where I was again told that I had the job pending my references? Well, my references weren’t even called. And I have not been able to get anyone to call me back and have the decency to tell me they changed their mind.
It is so hard to stay optimistic. I keep telling myself that something awesome will come along soon. But when I can’t even get acknowledgement that my applications are being received…Well, I’m starting to feel like, “why bother?”
Job Search – Next Steps
Today while Rory was napping, I found a few job postings on Kijiji that looked interesting. Tomorrow, since I’m not babysitting, I will send out applications. A couple of them are going to require complete rewrites of my resume. So those are the ones I will tackle first. I will also contact my career counsellor and see what she suggests.
Lately I feel like I am just flogging a dead horse. I hope I can get things to turn around soon. I’d love to find out that the horse is just sleeping.
