Been a while

Well, I guess it’s been awhile as I look at the date of my last post – July – lots and yet nothing have happened since then so I’ll catch you up quickly.

July and August went by rather uneventfully until the end of August, when I was contacted to work a 1 month temporary placement at a local university.  As some of you may know, I have been looking for decent work for a good while now and this chance at the university was the result of a good deal of work and networking within a network.  It came about as a result of an interview that I had over a year ago, when I made a good impression on the Director, and my continued nagging and emailing to a certain HR Advisor within the university.  You never know.  Apparently, the impression I made in the interviews and meetings was good.  🙂

So I had a good solid month of work at a reasonable salary and one that I would be happy to earn for a living should my luck hold.  As someone who has been unemployed and/or underemployed for what seems like a very long time, this chance to work in an administrative position for awhile was like heaven.  I loved knowing what to do and how to do it  I enjoyed understanding the politics of the situation and staying out of them.  I loved earning a good living for a job that didn’t stress me out beyond belief and compromise my personal convictions.  In short, I thoroughly enjoyed the month of September while I worked full time in an administrative job.

I gotta say, they seem to have loved me as I got roses, a luncheon, cake, cookies, chocolates and many hugs when I left.  I hope it means they loved me, and not that they hope never to see me again!  I’m looking on the bright side, as I choose to do regularly.

I hope to stay more connected in the future!

    Don’t take the apparent rejection personally, it can be very frustrating and cause you to be negative, but with consistent effort you can make it. Good luck.
