Yep, it is pretty darn silent around here. With both kids in school it is weird. For the past 7+ years there has been some type of kid noise in this house, practically 24/7. Now every day I will have 3 hours of pure silence. Even the husband is taking it in…sleeping style. Nothing goes better with a little afternoon silence than an afternoon nap.
I didn’t get the job I was interviewed for last week. It was such a hard let down. I felt so confident about the interview, especially with both people telling me “good answer” each time they asked a question. Unfortunately they gave the job to someone with more health care experience. It was just a school health clerk position, I am pretty sure anyone with substantial health care experience isn’t going to settle for a 4 hour a day job (a few bucks over minimum) with no benefits. Though…it would have been perfect for me.
So I am now applying for more “would be perfect” jobs, and crossing my fingers that I at least get an interview. It is disappointing to get notified by email that I didn’t get a job, when I didn’t even get an interview for the job.
A little voice is telling me I need to rewrite me resume or something. Tony tells me there is just a exceedingly large job pool here, and he is right. This county has a huge unemployment rate, apparently it is the 6th worst in the state of California. So, it really isn’t me…it just is what it is. On top of that, I am returning to the job market from being a mom…and…I don’t speak fluent Spanish, which is a big deal in my area. Perhaps I need to invest in Rosetta Stone.
