|Happy Valentine's Day. |
might be more enthusiastic about that if I were celebrating it
with someone... my husband, a friend, even my family... but
I'll be going home to an empty apartment tonight.
went out on a job interview. The company is located in a
historic building near the waterfront downtown, so I had a
wonderful first impression. After talking with the "team
leader" and the "job supervisor" though, I had an idea that
they thought I was way overqualified. Their description of the
job sounded more like a mailroom distribution type of job. Not
exactly what I'm looking for.
However, that does not
mean I am giving up. Just the opposite. That was my first
interview in the current process of looking for my next career
move. This is a numbers game. The more I do, the better my
chances of finding something that I really want.
What do I really want? Well, I want something where I
get to work with computers. If I had net access so I could
check my email at lunch or after work, that would really rock.
I want to organize and be in charge of something. Is that too
vague? I love to be in touch with people, putting projects
together or making sure that projects stay on budget, or on
time, or just keep running right. Surely there's a place for
I also want something that pays enough
that I can take care of myself. I want to know that my rent
will be paid without a problem each month, and some left over
to go to the art museum or see a movie... I want to have
medical insurance and all the other good benefits. I want a
position that I can stay at for a few years, learn something
new... be challenged and fulfilled...
Well, it doesn't
necessarily have to be fulfilling, because I can find
that outside the job. If it was for a not-for-profit company
or some firm that did something wonderful for humanity,
though, that would be cool. If it was for a real competitive
corporation, that would be okay, too, though. The bottom line
is I am looking for something that is satisfying for me.
Please don't tell me I'm asking for too much!
In the meantime, tonight I will be going home and
reading a book tonight. Woohoo! No really, I have been reading
some really good books, lately, and I plan to get an
up-to-date list up on this website soon... so you, my precious
visitor, can take a look at what I find interesting.
Now I am laughing my head off at all that I have
written... I'd better go before I really get started...
