On Tuesday, October 25, 2005 I applied for an Office Manager position with an Ecommerce company in Venice. No word yet.
On Wednesday, October 26, 2005 I had a 45 minute interview with Hilton. It went well.
On Thursday, October 27, 2005 I call my temp agency and told them I was interviewing for the position that I currently hold as a temp. But I did ask them if it doesn’t go in my favor if they would be able to suppy work for me. The temp agency said that had lots of work.
On Friday, October 28, 2005 I had another 40 minute interview with Hilton; this time with the woman who has been my “acting boss”, since I am a temp in this position.
On Tuesday or Wednesday of next week I will find out if I have the job.
On Tuesday, November 1, 2005 I was told that I did not get hired for the Training Analyst position at Hilton. I was told that the other guy had more “experience”. I know the real reason and it wasn’t because I was not qualified. I’d been doing the job for 6 months. I was told that the transition will take place November 28, 2005. Also, she alluded to that I may need to train the guy that got the job. I have to get another job before then and fast. I do not want to train another guy that will be taking over my job!
Also, today I spoke with the temp agency that I work for and told them I will need a temp to hire position. They asked for an updated resume and I gave it to them. They sent it out for an Executive Assistant position at a Real Estate Firm. We will see if I get an interview. It I do not hear back by November 3rd I will call them.
Today, Wednesday, November 2, 2005 – I have been trying to keep myself busy since I have no work to do. Apparently, my boss has stop giving me any assignments. So, I have taken the opportunity to look for jobs and contact my temp agencies. I emailed my resume to one of my temp agencies and asked if she can forward on my resume for the Office Coordinator position. I sent an email to my pastor asking for an time where I can just vent and bounce ideas off him. I wrote an email to my friend that has been praying with me regarding my job situation. But mostly the prayers are for “letting go”, to have faith that God is going to pull me through this one.
I am feeling a bit overwhelmed but I have to stay focus and know that God’s got my back. That there will be a job for me. It’s so hard, because I want to run my own photography business and do my films on the side. But that all costs money and what do I do in the mean time? I need to pay my bills and live. Temping is no way to live. It really restricts your lifestyle. I would like to go out with friends and date more than I do (which is pretty non-existent presently).
November 3rd I am going to contact my temp agency and ask for the status of the interview for that Executive Assistant position. If they say it’s not going to happen then I will ask them if they have anything else. Either temp to perm or just temp. They are the best paying temp agency so it would be better if I got a position through them. This is so hard.
