As of July 18th, I quit my job! Not that I didn’t love my job because I did. The bad aspect of the job was the boss! At the end of the school year, I asked for a little raise and more hours to which I was denied both. I was appalled by this for a couple of reasons. One, she gave a nurse that was hired one week before me a raise. Two, my boss rants and raves about how wonderful I am and how she would hate to lose me. So needless to say, we went back and forth on negotiating some agreement to no avail. So I gave my notice and am currently unemployed.
I hit the internet and applied for job after job after job. I think it was 20 jobs total. Some at hospitals, some at clinics, schools, etc. I have been searching since June 16th. And since then, I have only had three interviews. I did get a few phone calls as well but as I looked back at the job and salary, I decided not to call back. All three interviewers had offered me the position. FANTASTIC! So I waited a few days and called back the interviewers, declined the ones I didn’t want and accepted the one I wanted. GREAT! Right? Wrong! So, so wrong. I accepted the job yesterday and today three other jobs called wanting interviews! What the hell took them so long to contact me. I filled out applications weeks ago and they are getting back to me now that I took a job. It is so damn frustrating!
Do these people think I have time to wait around for their call while I have no income? HELLO PEOPLE! My cover letter stated, “Available to begin as soon as possible!” Which means I currently do NOT have a job and would really really like one!
Needless to say, I did schedule an interview for August 12th even though I did accept another job offer. I am trying to keep my options open here. They are the exact same job just in a different county so it will all depend on the salary! I do have a mortgage to pay here.
As of now, I have a job! Yippy for me!
