I had three really great interviews in the last two weeks and felt extremely positive about all three experiences. It was a bit of a heartbreak to get the rejection letters, but, alas that is the way of the market right now.
Which leads me to the current slump. I had been extremely diligent in my job search for the past few months and am currently slacking. I’ve hit that low point that all long-term unemployed individuals hit. Why can’t I find a job? Why won’t anyone hire me? What’s the point.
It’s a low point. We all have them and most of us will recover from them in due time. I say “we” because I know the cycle, I recognize it for what it is, and I’ll move on. For the time being I work 40 hours in retail, listen to a lot of Muse, Jed Whedon and Lykke Li and wait it out. Then it’s back to the all consuming job of finding one that pays.
