Viewing the 'Job Search' Category

I'm totally doing the happy dance the past two days. I found out yesterday afternoon that the job I've been interviewing for is putting together an offer for me! Woo Hoo!

What a long road it's been. Nine very long months of looking does not do well for the psyche, marriage or finances. But, things are starting to look up and the challenge now will be to rein in the bills/get current/start saving and making progress on paying things off.

Once I see the offer in the next few days, I'm going to come up with a list of goals to work towards and a list of wants. None of it will really qualify as a need but I of course will have a hard time keeping it separate so I'm thinking if I make a list, it will help keep that in check.

Job search update

I had the second interview Monday and got good feedback. I also had a third interview Tuesday with the same company. I can't imagine that they won't hire me but you really never know. I'm waiting to hear from them and plan on calling later on this afternoon to see if I can get a status update before the weekend.

I also had an interview for a part-time position yesterday. It went well and I got a couple more contacts for my search. Hopefully something comes through from one of these soon. I also sent out 12 more resumes this week.

Cautiously Optimistic

I just got a phone call for a second interview from the one I had last week. Unfortunately, it's not until next Tuesday because of scheduling stuff but that's okay - at least I got called back! Please continue to keep your fingers crossed for me as I keep looking for a job!

Follow up to interview

The interview went really well. I'm optimistic about it and am anticipating a follow up phone call this week. I will keep updating!

I've been looking for a job now for about 7 months and it is getting frustrating and slim as far as income. I really don't want to settle and definitely don't feel that I would be with this job but if if doesn't pan out, I will have to revise my strategy and look for something else.

Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Job Search

A job search is a pretty frustrating thing. Especially when you have a new degree and no experience in the field you are looking to break into. I can do the work, I just need someone to take a chance on me and give me the job. Once they hire me they will realize it was, of course, the best decision they ever made - it's just a matter of getting in the door. I have sent out easily 50-100 resumes over the past 6 months - not just in the mail but online submissions too. It just stinks. I want a job...I need a job...I want MONEY!

Hopefully my interview today pans out and I get a job offer from it. Who knows how long the hiring process will take.
