I have always heard that the best time to search for a job is while you have one. True, you have some financial padding while you are working, but as the title of this blog suggests, searching for a job takes A LOT of time. So now I am juggling my new job and all of its challenges (by “challenges” I mean ridiculous and unacceptable expectations), my home life when I am home which I never am because I’m on the road so much and when I am home I have other work to do for my company and the rest of the time I am doing laundry or collapsing from exhaustion, keeping in touch with friends and family (thank God for texting and IM and the almighty BLACKBERRY) and SEARCHING FOR A JOB.
I apologize for the long sentence but really, that sums up my life right now. One long, never-ending sentence of stuff that controls me instead of me controlling it. And in case you didn’t know, I am a CONTROL FREAK. (I hear the sound of my husband’s head bobbing up and down like a bobble head as he reads this.)
I am home today and tomorrow but hit the road again Wednesday night. It may not be the “best time” to search for a job as the saying goes, but have laptop, will job search.
In my house,
In the car,
On the road,
Maybe at a bar,
I do not like the job search scam,
I do not like it Sam-I-am.
P.S. DID YOU KNOW THAT DR. SUESS’S FIRST BOOK WAS REJECTED 27 TIMES BEFORE BEING PUBLISHED? PERHAPS THAT IS HIS GREATEST GIFT TO US ALL.
