one job found

February 16th, 2009 at 02:53 pm

Good news - SO found a job. In fact, he found one so quickly that he ended his last job on a Friday and started the new one on a Monday! Not only that, but the new job pays over twice what the old job paid - a very, very good thing, considering I cannot find a job in my field to save my life.

I had a couple of interviews at one place, but they didn't call me back for a third. I asked for feedback from the interviewer (because frankly, I could have done that job in my sleep, not that I said that!), but she never responded. At least I am able to collect unemployment - that will help pay the bills until August, anyway. The bills are piling up, too. I just got one for a medical appointment I had in March 2008!

I thought staying at home all day would be fun, and that I'd accomplish so much, but I never factored in the inevitable depression. I should be happy as a clam, but the combination of being laid off so soon from a job that I thought was perfect for me and being unable to find anything remotely applicable is taking its toll. Combined with freezing temperatures, ice, snow, sleet, and no sunshine....I'm trying to be positive, but it's hard.

I wish spring would come! That would help!

    That's really good news! But hope you find a job as well, if nothing else, so you wouldn't feel so depressed....

    That is good news about your SO finding a job.

    How is the photography website going? Is there any chance of making that into a good income?

    {{{Kashi}}}} Here's hoping you find something soon!

    Congratulations to SO. Now for you - any possibility that with unemployment, temp work, the job search, you might consider doing a little bit of volunteer work? A bit of an oldie-moldie piece of advice, but it will keep you out of your pjs in the afternoon, you make new connections. You definitely have some great skills to offer up. Something as simple as helping a shelter photograph animals for adoption, for instance.

    Oh wait- I'm sorry for being stupid earlier on my comment. So you haven't found a job - yet? Oh, I'm sorry but on the other hand congratulations to your SO Smile I hope you find a job soon. You sound like a good guy anyway so I'm positive you'll find one in no time. Patience and prayers, my dear.
