I know what I'm doing, I think.
One of the things I've been trying to do is find a decent job. I mean, I've had a fast food one for a while now but it doesn't look that great on a resume. Plus, if I could get a good job and maybe take a year off and just work it be a nice break from studying. I would get valuable job experience and maybe even a reference. And it would be nice to actually make some money instead of constantly being poor from buying textbooks and paying tuition.
But that's part of the problem. I've been trying for the last 5 months and I haven't gotten anything yet.
It certainly isn't from lack of trying. I've sent in a resume, cover letter, etc., etc. to eight different places, managed to snag interviews for four of those places and got rejected by all four of them. Something about finding someone most qualified or a better fit for the job. Well what did you expect? I'm a University student with minimal real work experience.
I still have a little ray of hope however, I found two more jobs that somewhat appeal to me. They're both hospital kind of work, one with seniors and the other deals with the mentally disabled and I'd be alright with either one because I certainly can't afford to be picky.
There are just a few problems though. Like, if I fail to get either job by the end of August I'll be just heading off to another year of University, and because I couldn't get a summer job I'm kind of low on money and will probably need my parents to pay for my tuition for now. And that both these jobs are about an hour drive away, and I applied for them about a week ago and I still haven't heard back from either one.
Yeah, I'm still a bit bitter about not landing the job as a lawyer's assistant, that payed well, was close to home, and potentially offered me part-time hours when I decided to head back to classes.... But what can you do? I'll take what I can get it. It be nice to have a bit of a breather and re-evaluate my bearings in life.
ASSUMING I ever hear back from either of those guys.
