Negativity

For about two months I've been looking for a job now but it's a long process. I don't complain, I know it takes time. Rumor has it to be 4-6 months.

Yesterday at the party there was a guy from human resources of a company who asked me about my situation. (Last time we met, it was before my phd exam.) I told him, I was still looking. His response was: "I don't think, you'll find a job - the economy is really bad right now. We don't hire anyone right now."

Really nice... Thank you for over sharing. I didn't apply anyway but thanks to you, I know your company isn't doing too well! Isn't that like classified information? After that, I didn't even want to talk to him anymore.

One of my best friends also work for human resources but for a different company. She told me the exact opposite. Her company is almost desperately looking for people to hire...

Later that night the host told me, I should talk to that guy because he's in human resources and I should show him my application and what not... No thank you, not interested. I'm fine. I've had a couple telephone interviews and the first interview in person is coming up as well. I think, I'm okay. So far I don't panic, it's not that long and I treat it like vacations. I can sleep in, meet my friends, even finish up some research work for my upcoming publication... The last thing I want to hear is negativity from some random guy that I don't even know. I can't rush companies to interview me. And I don't want to be or look desperate because it might drive me to accept something I don't really want to do.

  2. Don't worry, it really can take up to one year. You will find a job. I went through this with my hubby in the past year. He is such a sweetheart and really really good in his job and he worked for 25 years only for one company. So loyal and even for him it took some time. He got some offer but for very low conditions, so he said no to those kind of opportunities. He had the luxury of having a job and believe me he was also worried to get a job, absurd, eh!

    Stay positiv!
