Ok, I have been unemployed since May 2008. I got a job in October 2008 working part time at a localdoing collections. My hours range from 9-14 per week, plus I collect partial unemployment. So you’re saying whats the problem, right?
I will elaborate: I need full time work in order to pay my bills on time and in full including my mortgages (1st & 2nd). I have been on several interviews in the last 4 months and was sooo close but eh…no job offers. I am very frustrated. There are so many people out of work in my state that unemployment is almost at 9%. Oh BTW my husband is only working part time now also and recuperating from a car accident last month.
I am now starting to second guess myself after the interviews. Did I over sell myself? Was I too aggressive, was I not aggressive enough? Its getting so hard to be myself at these things. I call it the “interview dance”. I have followed every bit of advice that the career builder, & jobs.offer. I am registered with 3 different . I have gone to (which are useless). I have my resume posted on , linkedin, ,
Well tomorrow I have yet another interview from a post that I applied for on Feb 5. they just called me today to set it up.
Cross your fingers, toes, hair follicles and anything else you can think of. I will let you know what happens in a few days-cause of course I won’t know anything right away.
