Job Search Update

Filed under: Conservative,Economy & Business,Job Loss,Unemployment,Work — Amazing Jake @ 2:49 pm

Blogging has been light  non-existent over the past week due to my job search.  There's been a lot of potential tpoics to discuss, from the French riots (I really missed out on that one) to the illegal immigration demonstrations.  I'd like to take a break now and then to write about that, but looking for a job is a full-time job.

Since my job was eliminated last Monday, I've had 5 interviews for positions ranging from call center middle management (my background) to individual sales rep positions, and made a lot of networking contacts.  I've also done some exploration of self-employment options, and did a short contract writing job.  I've been through this layoff thing before, so I'm pretty regimented about my search. 

So on that note, back to the grind.  If only those French protesters would be as focused on finding and keeping a job as they are on protesting, there wouldn't be a need to protest over job security.

  1. Good luck with the job search. Getting laid off can be pretty tough, but there is always another opportunity.
