I’m doing the job search today and hoping and praying that something breaks. It’s been difficult the last week trying to stay positive and to keep chipping away at it. Other than the mental scarring, it’s almost like the 3 months of working never happened and I am right back where I was those 3 years searching for a job. It’s as if I took 2 steps forward and 3 back.
I see the physical signs of those 3 months — paperwork, my badge (this company was so messed up they never even asked for my ID badge back), new work clothes and shoes, etc. And I remember all the places I travelled to while in their employ.
And yet here I sit, in my home office, on a Tuesday afternoon, going through all my job search websites once again. Truthfully I never stopped looking but now there is more at stake as I need to find something soon.
I just realized that my beloved Phillies aren’t the only ones who have a Mission October. Hopefully a “Mission Accomplished” blog entry is not far behind. For both me and my boys!
