Underemployment Day 4

Thursday, October 11, 2012

Well today I actually hunkered down and worked on looking for a job. I stopped by a place that someone told me was hiring and they told me I had to go through Job Service. So I'll check it out later. Then I wen to a temp service on line and filled out their application. They wanted information from my last four jobs. That means salary, titles, phone numbers, etc. from 1997. Who remembers that kind of stuff. So I typed up an Excel document with what I can remember and when I get home I'll try to find out more info and then go the site and complete it. I figured having most of the information was better than not completing it at all.

Yesterday I called a "friend" from work. (I never know how to use that term any more.) He is someone I work with at work. I wanted to let him know what was happening. I have called him in the past when I've had a rough day and he has provided support. He just brightens my day when he calls. Sometimes I actually get in trouble when he calls because we chat too long. We were on the phone for almost two hours. He was telling me how this will be the best thing that happens to me, it may take a while to see it. One thing that he mentioned was that I should enjoy this time without stress. Just take the 20 hours after all my husband has benefits and find work here and there. Don't worry about a full time right away. Just enjoy my time with Richard and take it easy. I'll worry about the future after awhile. After all there is nothing we can do about the past or the future, just our present ...which is a gift, right?

Now let's hope I can remember this philosophy for more than a day emoticon

    Know exactly what you are going through as I am unemployed. It is an adjustment after a lifetime of having a job. Harder to get a job at my age and in my region. Hoping for a change though. Keep on sparking!
