Yep. I have been having all the fun that comes with a job search.
[insert: nausea, self-doubt, double the daily stress and some occasional diarrhea]
I’ve kept very busy these last three weeks; I had three job interviews so I spent most of my evenings learning about the companies I was interviewing with, prepping for (and practicing) the interview questions, and coming up with a bunch of reasons why I needed to ‘step out’ from my desk at 3:15pm. I think I used all the excuses by now –
- gotta go to the dentist as one of my fillings fell out
- I have that weird mole and it’s itching and I really have to have it checked out
- just stepping out to get a quick lunch! (and disappearing for 2 hours)
- my friend has an emergency and I am her only contact in town, gotta run and help her
Anyhow, it took so much out of me, it literally sucked out all of my energy to deal with the process. Not fun.
And what’s even less fun? Not getting any of those three jobs.
I am bracing myself as I am going to take a couple of weeks to recover and do it all over again in mid April!
