Job Hunt

Applications since 2/1/2006: 16
Interviews: 6
Job Offers: 2 so far, but I couldn't start immediately so they were offered to others. 2 still possible.

I'm ready to get off this rollercoaster. I want a job already. Also? I thought we'd be okay financially until June but no. The van needed work. Need I say more? I need to start a job May 1st. That was my goal from the start but that was so we'd have a cushion. Now I need it to buy groceries.

The interviews? All went well. It's so strange applying for jobs now that I'm older. I'm pickier. I mean, not to say I wouldn't take something just because we need more income but when I walk out of the interview I have a definite feel if it is a "fit" or not. Of the two possibles, one is a better fit but either would work well. Also, the ones I didn't get? None really felt right.

Strange fact: I have been the first interview for 5 out of 6 of them. The first person they saw in person. Do you know how hard it is to gauge how much they like you when you're the first person they see? Very difficult.

Good luck with the two that are on the table.
