As of tomorrow, I'm a working girl again.
I had an unexpected summer off, and it was fun, but I'm looking forward to getting back to work. This is a temporary job, though. Probably just two weeks, which is fine. It's a paycheck. Just in time too.
The job search is terrible. I had a couple of contacts when I first moved, and both of them turned out not to have any positions "at this time" but both recommended I set up an account on Career Builder. Since then I have been on Career Builder daily, in addition to calling in response to ads I see in the paper, and stopping personally at local businesses. I have a reasonably wide search field, too, since of course I'd love to live closer to my dear Brett.
No dice. I've had a few interviews, and since I'm not in a destitute position, have had the freedom to say "no thank you." Actually, I've turned down a couple of options the Temp agency had for me, because I will not make an hour-long commute for the tuppence they offered!
So I'm using my discretion. This job is in an office closer than the previous offers were, doing a specific task for a specific office that is changing a procedure and needs to update old files. Not exciting, but something I know I can do, and in a decent environment.
This is just a post to keep you updated, that I'm here, but haven't anything exciting to say at the moment. I'll work on it, I promise.
