Adventures in Job Hunting

October 26, 2009

Maybe I should change the name of my blog to Adventures in Job Hunting!

It isn’t fun!!

I had 2 interview scheduled for today.  Showed up for the first one and the guy was out sick with the flu.  Ugh.  Left a message with him to reschedule.  The second place had no applications and basically just took my resume and said they would call me.

After that I drove around and dropped off resumes at 3 other places and called a total of 22 places.  Not one nibble! No one is hiring.

I think I might have to re-think my strategy.  Need to reformulate my plan!

The morning started off so well…all dressed up and optimistic:

Made a snack before I left..greek yogurt, a dab of raspberry jam and half a Kashi pumpkin spice flax bar..mmmmm

By the time I got home my attitude was a little different.  I changed my clothes and made a turkey, avocado and giardiniere sandwich. (not pictured)


Thanks to everyone for their encouragement and kind words…hopefully I can come up with a new plan tonight/tomorrow and keep moving forward!

    Sounds like you’re on the right track and working hard. Keep doing what you’re doing and I’m sure it will pay off. Plus, that suit looks fabulous on you! 🙂

    Keep at it and something will pop up! 🙂
