An end of bumming [Apr. 3rd, 2007|05:19 pm]
So, I've more or less been doing a job search for the last few weeks. I say "more or less" because there really hasn't been enough effort, as job hunting scares me into paralyzation. Before that I was a bum, more or less from end of January until mid-March. Why? Because I had the money to coast, and I will coast if given half the chance.

The point of all this is that I got a call from the security company I used to work for. They want me back, albeit at a slightly different position which pays less. I start tomorrow. I'm glad because it means I'll have money again, and I don't hate the job. I'm sad because overcoming the fears and anxieties related to job searching is something I really should do for my own personal development, and now I won't at least for a while.

Of course, having a job again means that I will be able to stay in the area, which I would like to do if at all possible, so that is good. I do need to move when my lease expires, because living alone is too expensive and too isolated to be good for me.

I don't know why I'm being this candid. Oh well. Take care, all.

I've found that jobhunting while you already have a job is infinitely nicer. Now that you're set, you might want to casually look into other options. The knowledge that you don't have to actually even interview for them might help make it less horrible.
