4.8 miles. Untimed.
This job search has been an eye-opener to say the least! I continue to feel blessed and overwhelmed by the support of my friends, family and colleagues. Some opportunities that I never dreamed of have come up and they create an interesting dilemma. I’ve never thought about doing freelance marketing, but I’ve been approached to do just that for a gentleman that has been amazing to me over the past 2 years and for whom I have a lot of respect. It’s one of those things where I’d almost rather do the work for free.
Yesterday, I had a second interview with a company that I really like. Not only do I like them, but I genuinely feel that they could benefit from my experience and perspective. It feels really good to be able to say that. Hopefully, I will have an offer from them by the end of the week.
I have an interview tomorrow with a big company that has always intrigued me. This interview kind of caught me by surprise because I submitted my resume online. I never expect to hear back from those types of things. I always assume that they’ll hire internally or that they don’t really go over those resumes. It’s nice to know that mine made enough of an impression to get an interview.
I can’t help but feel optimistic about all of this. I know that I’ll have good days and bad days, but that’s the decision I made and I wouldn’t want it any other way. In fact, I have several friends who are unhappy in their jobs. There is a difference between a bad month and being unhappy in your job. For the people that are genuinely unhappy, don’t spend one more day doing something that doesn’t fulfill you. It’s not worth it. That’s probably the most important lesson I’ve learned from all of this.
Okay, lots of school tonight so I can spend time with my friend who just moved back from Korea…I CAN’T WAIT!!!
