Searching for a Job in the Middle of a Pandemic

It's an odd time to search for jobs. 

What I've learned...
  • Look for things I know I can do
  • Look for things I want
  • Keep trying
I have three or four interviews this week. I say that because one I haven't heard back from yet, after I emailed them.

One I kept emailing, only to find out they weren't getting my emails. I guess it was through a job platform, not their actual email. I called them using the fourth of July as an excuse. I just said, "I started thinking that you may be out of the office due to the Fourth of July, and I wanted to touch base..."

For me it's not about how much money I make. It has more to do with enjoying the job. I'm not so sure I want to work somewhere that's in constant routine. I want to have a bit of variety. 

I want to work for a place where I feel like I'm making a difference. I'm not just a number in a crowd. It should be a team that we're a part of. Some places...you walk in the door and you feel like one person is against another person right away. If someone is under me, I don't want them to feel so. I want them to do their job, and we have respect for one another. I scratch their back, and they scratch mine. When it comes down to it all humans matter. 

What do you want out a job?

Good luck with your job interviews this week! I agree. I want a job that I love, not one where it's just going in and collecting a paycheck. Too many people stress over jobs they hate. I can't have that kind of negativity in my life. I'm thankful that I'm able to use my talents to make money from home, but now that Allison is older, I am thinking of applying to outside of the home jobs. But I have to be passionate about the work! I also subscribe to you help me, I help you. We're all in this together!
