That's okay, though. It was in an industry I had intentionally gotten out of years ago, but I have experience and would do well. Even though it bugs me on some level. BUT... I had AMAZING references. Ha!
As much as I thought I would be fully employed soon, I can honestly say I wasn't heartbroken to be denied. It was nice to have a positive feeling about the job search, even for a while, so I'll take it! And it's not like I stopped checking my online sources.
Back to this job, though.
At my temporary home for the week, I found I quite like the office setting, but this particular place is somewhat... austere? Quiet, certainly. I don't know if there's a rule against music, but it seems to be the case. No music coming from any cubicle. Yes, it's a cubicle farm. Excuse me: "open plan" as they say. Fortunately, being in HR, I have a door with a lock. I've been instructed that I need to lock my computer any time I step away from my computer, and lock my door if I leave the office.
I also have an officemate who is a very sweet lady, but who only works three days a week. She's "long-term temporary", but her job is about to be posted as a full-time position because they realized they need someone there all the time. She suggested I apply for it when it opens. ...but I don't think I could do the "no music" thing in the long term.
Oh! Extra bonus!
There's a rule. Like, a written rule, that says you canNOT eat lunch at your desk! At my previous job I ate while I worked 90% of the time. I LOVE this rule!
Anyway, I'm moving along. Still looking for something full time, before I actually need to utilize health insurance, which I no longer have. My advice? If you have a job, don't leave it!
