I got a wave of rejection emails today from jobs I applied for a while ago, both ones I interviewed for and ones I did not. Odd timing.
Just now finally coming around to getting back into the grind of submitting applications. 126 is the current count.
I’m applying to a company my friend works at, doing quality assurance. She said it’s boring but pays well, although the specific project I’m applying for involves working with maps, so it wouldn’t be quite as boring as working on the other software.
Getting a job that is boring but pays well so I can work for a little while to just travel is an option I am re-considering, as opposed to getting a dream job somewhere and settling down and feeling really guilty when I have to quit so I can go travel more.
Anyway, I’ve got to go fire off some more applications now. 5 days ago
I got listed on the teachers on reserve website, so now I can do substitute teaching. I did everything, finger printing, etc etc.
Now I am an official substitute teacher, I just have to go to work!
(and not be too freaked out by my first day! I’ve done it before and it can be really hard) 6 days ago
i applied at a retail store yesterday, which hopefully will be okay. i also recently subsribed to the subreddit /tales from retail… so there’s that.
anyways i know someone who works there and he said he would recommend me… so we’ll see.
it’s not a high end and probably won’t pay that much but here’s hoping. 1 week ago
My interview today went pretty badly. I think the quality of my interviews is declining. It shouldn’t be going that way.
I’m still having a hard time pushing myself to apply for more jobs. I need a break, I need to go somewhere for a day, or just spend an afternoon driving in the country. 1 week ago
