I’m job seeking and I hate it. I hate feeling like no one wants me, like I’m worth nothing. I hate putting my soul into cover letters and getting nothing back, not even a no. Sympathy to those of you who’ve been job hunting a lot longer than me.
So today I email a BIG firm. The CEO was expecting the email, on recommendation by SO (bless him). It’s not exactly what I want to do, but something I have a lot of experience in. And within seconds of me hitting send I realise there’s a typo in the subject line. Before I can cancel – it’s sent.
I am exhausted and fed up, and now I’ve blown it with probably the only company I had a chance with. I burst into tears. I am so upset. Thing is because SO and I are unmarried I need a job for visa reasons as well as my own sanity! One thing that keeps me going is at least I’m not looking for work in the flooded UK job market.
Anyway. After tears and a drink (a soft drink) I get an email back. Literally less than 10 minutes later!! It’s good news! The CEO says he thinks he has something for me! Is passing my details onto the office manager and I should hear from him about an interview very soon.
And now I could cry again, for a totally different reason. I am such a sap!
