Happy Hump Day, bloggies! Those 3-day weekends sure do make the week fly by!
I thought I’d take some time this morning to further explain my journey in job searching.
As you all know, I’m currently living in Maryland and searching for a job in California. Because of the internet, it’s been rather easy to search for jobs. In fact, I’ve applied to 10 so far! I’m very proud of myself for that.
However, there is one problem that I believe is truly hurting my chances.
I have a Maryland address.
Not a California address.
I honestly think the recruiters for these jobs are looking at my contact information, seeing a Maryland address, and tossing my application aside.
Here’s the thing that’s even more frustrating. The husband and I know where we’re living. However, we won’t get our address until we show up to move in. He even called yesterday to see if we could get a temporary address. Nope. Isn’t that a little crazy?!
So what does this little road bump do to my job hunting quest?
Well, at first I was rather frustrated and completely disappointed. But then I realized that I can’t change this situation, so I’m just going to forge ahead and still apply to all the jobs that I possibly can.
I know that something will eventually work out. I know that I am doing all I can in this job hunt. I know that’s all I can ask of myself. *deep sigh*
In other Three Months news, I had a ballin’ workout yesterday! I’ll be heading to Body Pump shortly and am looking forward to it! I’m really glad I got the 3-month gym membership…it’s been a great distraction to the frustrations of job hunting.
Ok, so I realize this was kind of a Debby Downer post. Let’s end on a good note…
What makes you happy?
I’ll go first: my husband, wine, ice cream, hand-written notes, to-do lists & random phone calls from friends.
