You know where I am going with this?
I don’t mean to sound spoilt but so far, getting a job has always been fairly easy for me. Of course I never applied for a High Profile job but it was always work that filled my wallet. Whether it was a Security position in a museum, working at McDonald’s or in a Sushi Bar.
As you may know, from February on I’ll be living on the other side of the world so I can’t really take on a long-term job. Additionally I have to work part time anyway because a) I got two dogs at home waiting to be cuddled and fed and walked & b) because I’m not sure if I could deal with the pressure of a full time job yet. I mean, I did work the past year but I’ve come so far in recovering from my depression – I don’t wanna push myself too much and fall back into that dark hole.
What I’m applying for are easy, part time, short term jobs. You know, cashiers, receptionists etc…
Now, like I said, I’ve always been really lucky with being employed straight after getting through the first job interview. Maybe I scared the companies into hiring me, I don’t know?!
Anyway, it’s been a while since I sent out like 15 applications and not ONE has bothered to reply. Seriously! I mean, if they don’t want me, hey okay, I can deal with that, no issue. But not replying at all, especially when it says on the website that they’d get in touch soon – man that’s frustrating…
Christmas is coming soon and I can’t give my parents a note that says “10 free hugs between now and New Year’s” – it didn’t work the last time. Okay, now I’m kidding. Of course it worked – when I was FIVE *rolling eyes big time*
I suppose I’ll spent the rest of weekend looking for more job opportunities, sent off another 15 applications and wait another eternity to find out that nothing’s happening.
Did you go through a similar experience? Feel free to share it in the comment section.
I shall keep you up to date and hope you have a lovely, stress free weekend 🙂
Much love, Ju xx
