I don’t know why I always get so freaked out when I have to search for a job because I am literally a machine when it comes to job hunting. Here’s how I’m doing so far:
- Jobs applied for: 47
- Recruiters met with: 9 (and let’s say I met with an extra 5 who weren’t on my calendar.)
- In-person interviews: 2
- Phone interviews: 3
- Other emails sent to contacts: 10,000 (that’s an exaggeration but you get it.)
I have a call tomorrow and two in-person interviews on Thursday. And this is just in my first week. Like I said: machine.
Searching for a job is a full-time job, and although it’s not always fun, at least I still have time for yoga. I have a full day tomorrow and in between appointments I’ll likely apply to the 13 job listings that I found this morning (having a Macbook Air is a lifesaver – so easy to carry around).
I had to stop by my old office today to pick up a bag of things that I’d forgotten and one of the account girls followed me out the door, hugged me, told me she was so sorry and that they missed me already, and then confided that she’d resigned yesterday. Maybe I smiled, just a little bit.
