Which of us are job hunting?

Interview with the VNA is on Tuesday. I'm going to strangle my vocational rehabilitation counselor because when I was talking to him about this job he freakin' asked me if I wore glasses or contacts and then tried to suggest that every eye doctor I've been to is wrong and glasses might help. Um, you've been working with blind and visually impaired people for how long? I am used to the general public having this idea that there must be some kind of fix for every vision problem but I can't imagine I'm getting this bull from someone who works for Services for the Blind.
2C/3A -- wurly!
1.) I had one for a job I REALLY would love on Thursday. It doesn't start until mid-August. The pay's not that great, but I think I would be very happy there. I emailed them to thank them (I met with two people) and the guy wrote back, "No, thank YOU! We'll be in touch soon!" please oh please oh PLEASE.

2.) Had another with this complete flake who played with her hair and chompedg um the whole time. It was for a theatre company and one of my good friends actually starred in a show they worked on, and I was planning on dropping his name in case I liked the place, and I really didn't...

3.) Had one yesterday, and I think it went really well, was in there for over an hour, BUT it is waaaaaaaaaaaaay uptown, making my bad commute even worse! I'd like to be able to walk to wherever I am working from my train station instead of taking another train, because that would be more time and another $70 a month!!!

My interview today went very well. At first the lady I met with didn't think I was fully qualified for the position, but I spoke up and I think I changed her mind! We'll see I guess. It definitely sounds like something I would love to do, my potential boss (and owner of the company) seems awesome, and the location and pay are good.

Fingers crossed!

I have never had a problem getting interviews, I just never get hired! In a way, it makes me even more frustrated, and I feel like other people don't get as many interviews, and then get the first or second job they interview for. What is WRONG with me???

I've read up to here - wow! You are so tenacious! Many blessings to you and all of you on finding and accepting the right job for you.

However, perhaps there's a history major out there who will get it instead...

She did tell me about a program that uses puts movie musicals in history class curriculums! (Like Oklahoma!) That interested me!
That's so funny - my very first unit plan that I needed to write for school, I decided to write one on Cowboys. For some strange reason, there was a rodeo/fair in DC that year. Anyway, I included the movie Oklahoma! as way for the students to see how cowboys lived. I actually showed it to mt students and they loved it. I was shocked - I don't even like that movie!

Anyway, if someone were to show teachers how to strategically incorporate all kinds of media into their units, it would really benefit our students who grow up almost possessed by media from birth! I think that would be a cool job, too!

just when i thought i would never find a job, one just fell into my lap. it's actually the job that i've been wanting. so don't lose heart and don't give up. it doesn't actually turn out okay in the end. this job is not what i anticipated being my first teaching position, but i'm so excited about it. it's excacty what i would have chosen for myself.

Welp, I'm on the job search now. After a week of unemployment (from my part time office job) and a month of no school, I'm a little bored. I'm also starting to get a little worried about finances, although FH makes enough to support us both, which means I can coast for a little while in order to find the right job. I'd like to do better than getting by, and actually start paying off my student loans and save some money for retirement/honeymoon/future house. He's already got some really good retirement investments, but I'm lacking in that respect.

I'm looking to either open my own massage business or get a good massage job, which seem few and far between. I'm also looking for a part time job to supplement my income. I'm being pretty picky about it, for probably the first time ever. I don't want to be an office drone, it makes me really unhappy, so I've decided I don't have to be. I applied for an assistant position for an organizing company, but they'd already hired 2 people. They said they'd keep my resume on file in case they need anyone in the future, so I guess I'll write a little email from time to time to keep my name fresh.

I wonder what I'll do!

Love the hair!
I am tired!!!!!

I don't want to do this anymore!!!!!!

It's too hot out for heels and businessclothes!








I'm becoming a nun.
I am having a rough day (and it's only 10:45 AM )

I just can't imagine ever getting hired again. I know it's a horrible way to think, but my last jobhunt really, really got me down. I was SO depressed and was actually on anti-depressants for a while and stopped sleeping and lost a ton of weight.

Then I FINALLY got that job and it made a lot of things better. I really DID do my best, and they kept absolute LOSERS

(http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlta...skank&start=60)

and let me go. I still am carrying around a lot of bitterness and anger towards them, and I know that's not healthy and not helping anybody but myself.

I just really can't do it anymore...going on these interviews, having a great interview, then not getting it. I don't know what else I have to do or how much better I need to be. And I'm so sick of seeing people go on one or two interviews and getting the job.

I'm just TIRED and drained and I'm not even working

I'm so discouraged.
CIBC,

Please don't get discouraged. Is it possible for you to take a break for a month?

(((Hugs)))

Thank you

I may take a break, in a way that I won't search for hours a day and only apply to things that REALLY sound like something I'd want.
I think I am going to write a "letter never sent" to my old boss, just to get my feelings out somewhat. Then I'll rip it up or put it in my journal or something. All this negativity is taking up too much head and heartspace for me. I am just SO MAD at them. My old boss was a complete WIMP for the things he let people get away with, the duties he gave ME to do (keeping track of how late everybody was every day and stuff) and then lets ME go while they still have jobs???
No progress here. I need to search for more jobs to apply for. This is the last week for my unemployment so I probably should be looking for a part time job. But I really have no motivation to do so. I have 3 family related graduation parties to go to in the near future, so get to let everyone know that yes I'm still unemployed. I'm really regretting quitting the newspaper I originally worked for. The job did suck, and I could've worked there for 20 years and would've still been making $12/hr. But hey, I guess that's better than minimum wage right?
Guess I haven't popped into this thread in a while. Things are going pretty well right now.

Had an interview on Thursday that went really well, but there is a lot of competition for this job. It is a great opportunity though. I would love to get it. She said they hope to make a decision sometime this week. Fingers crossed!

I have another interview this coming Thursday, for a job that seems good but not as good as the one I already interviewed for.

I also got a call from another place today and they want to set up an interview. I haven't called them back. I need to refresh my memory about this job and decide if I still want to interview.

Though I haven't found a new job yet, I am at a job that I like (have just outgrown) so there's no huge rush. And I am having enough interest with the jobs I really want that I feel no compulsion to take interviews for the second-tier jobs.

I have already turned down two interviews, one because the commute would be heinous and one because it just wasn't up to the level of the other interviews I was getting.
