Still Looking for a Job

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

So, I got this back from the performing arts department:

"Thank you for your interest and interview for the Events Usher position in the Arts & Humanities office. Your resume and skillset are impressive. At this time, the position has been filled. Due to your strong interview, I have your resume on file and will contact you, should another position with our department become available. "

Hmm...right. Oh well, I guess it just wasn't meant to be.

I had another job interview yesterday with the physics department, and I'm waiting to hear back from that one. I have a good feeling about it, but then again, I had a good feeling about the position with the performing arts department. So if that doesn't work out either, I have two more interviews on Wednesday, one with the School of Management career center, and one with the president's office. I also have someone I've been playing voice-mail tag with from environmental services.

Hopefully, by the end of the week I'll have a job. I'm not sure what I'll do if I don't. Keep looking, I guess, but since work study jobs for the semester are supposed to start on September 1st, which is Thursday, I'm not sure how much point there is in looking after that. I already applied for twenty different positions, which included everything I was even remotely qualified for, and I don't know if after this point any new positions would be listed.

    I'm looking for a job too. At least you are getting lots of interviews... I have sent out about 40 apps and only got 2 calls back - both from personnel companies...
    Good luck

    You could try finding out where the person you're playing phone tag with's office is and just stop by, which would be bad form for a job most places but at college I think it would work. Good luck with the hunt! You should see if your school has an America Reads, America Counts program. Because they send tutors into public schools they have a lot of openings compared with most of the financial aid jobs.
