I spoke to soon yesterday. One company that screened me is moving to next phase of application process, a 1 hour interview. I got two more offers to interview today! My feet are sore from working retail all day, but I am happy.
First day working my part time minimum wage job, and my feet are absolutely killing me. Other than that, I have an upcoming interview. I think if any of the other places I interviewed for wanted to hire me, they would have contacted me by now. I'm trying really hard to stay positive.
I'm trying so hard to stay positive. To appear calm, cool, and collected.
Everything is not okay, but everything is going to be okay.
Spent mother's day with my mother and family. And what a great day it was.
I am frustrated. Listening to this person makes me feel the absolute worst. And I often wonder if they are hearing the same things I am hearing? Because how can they perceive something so wildly different? If I could be doing something better, fine. But there is no need for name calling or talking down to. No need for unsolicited advice. And no need to jump into conversations, uninvited, to start talking about things you do not like. If I thought you liked a particular topic, maybe then would I try to talk to you. So now I can not even have one word with you because you're mad I told you I wasn't talking to you to begin with? After you raised your voice to me and started complaining about what you don't like? Do you not know what your own name is because I didn't use yours?
Job searching is stressful but I think writing about it here is helping me manage my emotions. So without further ado, another update: The recruiter accidentally called me "Taylor" so I wasn't sure if the e-mail was meant for me. But turns out, it was. And more- I have another interview. It pays more than the job I'm interviewing for next week, so that is something. And there are benefits, like paid leave, which is something I've never had before. So, yay me!
Another job I applied for, the position is being "held." They are going to re advertise the position after they gain more funding to offer for the role. I asked the recruiter to please keep in touch because I would the opportunity to reapply. More money- yes, all the yes.
One of the three potential interviews turned into an actual interview, so I am nervous yet excited. But the position calls for 2 years experience, and I have 4, so hopefully that alone impresses them. Hopefully, I'm not over qualified, because it's decent pay. I won't say no.
My mentor bought me lunch today, and we had a nice talk. I wonder, are we friends now?
Someone tested positive for covid in my building. I certainly hope I wasn't exposed. I have not been ill once since the pandemic started- I think these masks are worth keeping around. I really hate that I have to spend my last three weeks on an 80% telework schedule. But, I suppose it could be worse.
