2 Months (plus 2 weeks)

Still alive, although the job search is on a ventillator tube.

The job search has moved beyond frusterating. Especially when I see jobs on the boards that have been on there for months. The companies are refusing to hire people with experience, they want people with really cheap salaries. They will end up paying in the end, you can't subsitute cheapness for experience.

So it's been 2 1/2 months and I have gotten exactly 2 calls, one headhuntr asking for a refreshed copy of my resume and another that was going to submit my resume to a job that bascially had already made their choice.

At least a third of the jobs I have applied for, I have applied for them several times hoping maybe this time they will call.

To say it's depressing is the worlds largest understatement.

I think the dogs are getting sick of having me around so much. The other day I saw them huddled in the corner whispering "is she ever going to leave the house".

And Mr Weenie keeps putting his toes over that line that is holding my last nerve in place.

And I am so totally over family that thinks I am selfish for not wanting to lower my salary requirements tens of thousands but go totally postal when anyone mentions cutting hourly wages by a dollar or two for the sake of keeping a job.

Hypocritical ass munchers the whole lot of them.

Well, that sucks. And as for people trying to tell you what you need... heh... constructive criticism is nice, but not when you don't want it, and not in a negative manner.

You know what you can do and what you want and need... Trust yourself. And I'm praying that you get a job soon...!

I went 5 months without an interview. I know EXACTLY how you feel. Now? The only thing FIRMLY on the table? Something I hate that will put me right back where I am now in about 18 months.

And you'd be amazed at how many people do not understand....

Hang in there.....

Hang in there Tammi. Don't sell yourself short. Most are worth more than they think they are. Good luck.
