Aside from the obvious
reasons, I really hope that somebody would HIRE ME because I'm getting so beat down by this job search. It's like a job that's not a paying job but is still a job that's hovering over your head 24/7 with no slack ... any breaks you take from non-stop job hunting, networking, resume cranking, etc. become The Time You Were Not Working Towards Employment.
I got up after about 4 hours of sleep, jumped into the various Twitter feeds of job postings, and cranked straight through for 8 hours before my brain got mushy (I had to re-send one cover letter because I'd neglected to attach my resume ... a sure sign it's time to stop). Then I had to decide if I was going to a Tech Tweet-Up tonight (to network with people who I don't know, but might know people who might be hiring) or to a Career Transitions thing (with the same old desperate crowd of job seekers) which was featuring an interesting-sounding speaker. I opted for the former, but researched the latter, and contacted him on LinkedIn.
Now I need to do a bit of work on the bathroom floor (I think the leveler coat is dry enough that I can sand down the irregularities left from the patching compound), take a shower, and head downtown to the Tweet-Up.
Then, when I get home, I have four projects that are hanging, waiting for my attention, including MORE job postings that have come in via e-mail (stuff like Monster, CareerBuilder, Jobs.com, 4Jobs, Climber, ExecuNet, and TweetMyJobs) which I can only get to about once a week.
If nothing else, I WANT TO HAVE A JOB SO THAT I WILL HAVE SOME FREE TIME
Stress ... stress ... stress ... stress ...
