.job hunt.

In the past, I've been blessed to have had jobs offered to me, with very little effort on my behalf in finding them.  Having given in notice at my job, I am faced for the first time with the difficult task of applying for jobs and facing rejection.

  • having been actively recruited in the past, I have higher confidence that people will want to hire me
  • I have great work experience and excellent references
  • I have little to no interview experience
  • I don't really know how to "brag subtly" about myself, or advertise myself as a desirable candidate
Mostly so far I have struggled to find posted positions that I would love, and even after applying I have been rejected (for lacking male genitalia, and for various unknown reasons) and have only actually gotten one interview.  I keep trying not to get my hopes up too high, but with each application, I picture myself in the job, and some of them I would really love.

Anyhow, at this point I just have to wait and keep putting myself out there.  I am certain that something great will work out.  God is faithful.
