Job Hunting Sucks

Recommended Posts

So, here I am in Washington...looking for a job. I've had one major interview process that has netted zero results. I've met with a recruiter who has a few interviews scheduled later this week for me. I also have an interview with a consulting firm tomorrow. Progress is good, but the thing that bugs me is that I'm worried that I'm going to choose the wrong job. I did that about 2 years ago, and it almost killed me. The wrong job just really f's me up mentally in a bad way. That last experience was so rough, especially because I thought I'd done my due diligence, and it turned out to be a complete farce of a job - they lied about a lot of things. So, I guess ultimately I am gun shy. I will just have to do the best I can & be willing to walk away from the next one if it's not right for me. Am I sounding sane??

That's understandable Christa especially since youve been F****d in the past.

 

Funny how you post this because I was just about to write a thread pretty similar. I had this amazing job lead as a personal banker aproving mortagages and stuff which is differnt than my usual work. Anyway I was pumped all week long to hear from the branch manager who stated earlier n the week "he would hire me in a second". Guess not cuz I just got an email from his boss the regional manager who said my resume had only accounting experience thus no finance experience.

 

I'm totally bummed. We can be bummed together if you want Christa :P

 

I HATE job hunting.

Thanks girls! Glad I posted - we can be in this together. I just need to remember that I can be picky & wait for the right one. I am able to make a bit of money working remotely for my last employer, so that's good. Honestly, being home is getting a little lame. Social life sucks. Blah!

 

I've reverted to "poor" mode. I was extremely excited that the dinner I cooked last night that everybody loved cost less than $8 total! Ahahaha!

Christa - what happened to that one that just wouldn't budge on the $$ - but otherwise seemed super excited about you, and you said it seemed like a good job? i am guessing this is the one that didn't work out. that really sucks.

I HATE job hunting too. smile27.gif I know I should start looking for a new one if I want to advance in my career, but the whole interview process and finding the perfect fit job is keeping me from feeling motivated. Good luck and hope you find what you like soon...

Christa, I keep telling myself to start looking for a new job because I die of bordom on most days.. But I haven't done it yet because, like you, I hate looking for new jobs. Hang in there, the right one for you will come along..
