I feel you maam.
I am on my way to an interview right now. Was in your exact position, left an OK job because they retaliated against a bunch of us, stole wages, the
So I took a month to heal my body, was wrecked.
I was keeping my eye on the job market the whole time, but was dreading day one of the search.
Time has come and I found this advice most helpful.
Stay active. Take breaks, make it work, but stay active.
As long as you fill out an application, make a new resume for a different type of job, what ever.
Keep positive. This one sucks ass, but is true.
If you get weird it will bleed through to your emails and applications. Interviews will be less than spectacular.
Apply to everything, dont limit yourself.
I was at that frustrated point when you go to craigslist and start to consider prostituting yourself. Lol.
I was only applying to crap jobs because I lacked faith and clarity.
I took a break, reworked a resume I didnt even use and applied to different jobs after looking for virtues I could sell to these employers from past
Long story short, I got some great interviews this week for pretty damn good jobs. You never know how what you know or have done is percieved by
others who have never done or dont know what you do.
There are entry level jobs that even educated people would like to have. These are dependant on character not education or title.
You can take away from all this:
Retweek yourself and your searching. Leave no stone unturned.
Also, I wouldnt waste time on jobs you know arent worth it. A job is a job, but you never know how close that great company is to firing the guy that
has your future job. You could miss it if you are off trying to stay sane. I know though.
Dont let the crappy ones get you down. We all know how we try to put our best foot forward and take whats offered....but you dont seem like you should
be selling yourself short.
Dont let your sense of pride and purpose make you feel guilty for not being at work every second you are looking. Its fine. As long as you keep trying
it will happen.
I dont know what else to say. Stay positive maam. You need you.
Hold it down.
