Is there anything more annoying or time consuming than applying for a job? I suppose I’m thankful that I have all the resources that make it possible – a computer, internet access, education, time to interview, time to research companies, a car to get to and from, know how about job fairs – I’m grateful.
I think the hard part is
“selling myself.” bragging about myself. I’ve done this, I know how to do that, I’m really good at this, I started this…. I hate it. No worse anxiety than trying to remember everything and not look like a fool when in an interview.
The job that I held the longest was the one where my bosses said it was the worst interview they had ever experienced. Scoreboard! I still got the job!
I think the hardest part about applying now is finding the time to do all the necessary things in between caring for my children.
Me: fixing resume
Kids: Mommmmmmmm.. I’m thirsty!
Me: writing letter of introduction
Kids: Mommmmmyyyyy… where’s my potty seat!?
Me: back to letter of introduction
Kids: Mommmmmmm… I need a wipe!!
Me: back to fixing resume
AND SO ON.
I suppose I found time to write this blog and you know what?! THEY DIDN’T INTERRUPT ME ONCE. Grr.
