Job Search Update

Filed under: Daily life — Tags: , , , — chiroptera @ 8:16 am

RCP did not seem like a good fit for me, so after the interview I sent a thank you note that pretty much said thanks but no thanks.  I have an interview coming up at DFE.  I have actually studied for this interview.  Of course I hope to do well and get an acceptable job offer, but even if I don’t get the job this time, I need to  impress them in case this job or a similar position becomes available again in the near (or distant) future.

Job search continues

The job at DFE has been posted.  I am somewhat upset because my mentor did not email the job posting to me.  I saw it posted without her pointing me to it.  I’ve got to get my application together for that one.  I just can’t decide what to say in my cover letter.  I’m starting to have some bad feelings about this position.

Another job was posted.  This one I’ll call Rural Crossroads Place [RCP].  I’ve kind of got a good feeling about this one, even though the listed salary range is a little low.

I received my rejection letter from CMP.  I didn’t even get a phone interview.

Planning my escape from Hill Valley

My mentor has informed me that Dream Former Employer [DFE] will have my sorta dream job posted soon.  I’m excited!  There are a couple of other job prospects, too, including Certain Metropolitan Place [CMP].  But I’ve decided to leave Hill Valley Employer [HVE] within the next year no matter how these prospects turn out.   I will go somewhere and do something and I will get by.

Bad times, good times

Things are not going so well lately, but hopefully I will get to talk about good things as well as bad things on this blog.

 One good thing that happened recently:  I learned that a job I would really like may be posted soon.

 One bad thing that happened recently:  My ex-boyfriend made me cry.
