Job Searching personal stories

The infamous post about not posting and other jazz.

He, I have committed the cardinal sin of posting about why I haven’t been posting but don’t worry it is not one big long whiny post!

I am feeling a bit better today! We are once again waiting to hear from Indiana, I wonder how many posts I have written about waiting for them to call… I found one here, here, here and here

Anyway, N got a quick email response this weekend from Evansville about how they are putting together another offer for him. They said it was not 100% what he was expecting and that we could expect it on Monday (today). Now don’t hold your breath we have heard that before!

Over the weekend we were job searching/ applying machines! We burned over 10 resume DVD’s, labeled them, addressed padded envelopes to those hiring and today I am busting out cover letters for them so we can have them in the mail by tomorrow! N also submitted about 5 e-applications this morning linking to his online resume reel.

All in all we have applied for about 20 different stations all over the USA this week, that way if the Evansville thing doesn’t pan out we have our butts covered, plus we may get an even better offer from someone… I had a positive dream about the job search saga last night so I think my hope and positive attitude is back today.

We saw Sex and the City yesterday for fun, it was a good movie and we kind of related to it as we are still not married/ engaged but are long term committed. Speaking of engagement we were ring browsing (again) on Saturday and we both found a ring that was just perfect… It was a bit more expensive but N doesn’t seem to care about that…

I just want something unique and dainty, I am not all about the status of an engagement ring. Granted someday I will want a ring upgrade and perhaps a carat diamond, eventually, but I don’t think it is a requirement for engagement. He has different views.

Also, I just got word from a coworker that my presence is requested this summer at a Colorguard clinic I have taught at before. In previous years funds have been tight with the organization so they could not pay me to teach, I am not sure what is different this year but I am happy to get my mind off the job stresses and do something I love.

So, yeah… That is the weekend update in a nutshell! How did your weekend go? Oh, if you haven’t already could your vote for my mom in the lifetime tv photo contest? Thanks!

  1. I know it is as stressful for the partner of the person applying for the job as it is for the person applying for the job.

    I’m glad you put out more apps this weekend. And how great that you’ll get to do a colorguard clinic!! Something that’s important to YOU.

    It’s now mid-afternoon on Monday. I hope you have heard SOMETHING from Evansville!

  2. I am SOO glad that you guys got so many more apps out!! Now N will have other offers to help him negotiate the job that you both really want! You are now so empowered! I am excited for you! The colorguard will help with the waiting for the replies to the apps – great job!

    My husband got me a good quality CZ for the engagement ring – then upgraded to a real diamond about 5 yrs later when we could afford it… most could not tell that the CZ was not the real thing ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I am sure I voted before but I just did it again. Hopefully I don’t get disqualified!

    I know something is going to pan out for you and N in this whole job search thing. I will keep sending good energy your way though.

    Oh, how exciting about you both finding rings you like. I hope you will share pics with us when you get them. I love to see stuff like that. ๐Ÿ™‚
