Yep, it's officially that time of year. The time of year when most everybody is sick of winter. It's been wet, snowy, icy, windy, cold in what seems like a never-ending cycle.
Job hunting is kind of like a never-ending winter: searching ads, filling out applications, strewing resumes around like confetti. You rarely ever get a response from anyone.
When you do, sometimes it's worse than no response. One company called me in an all-fired hurry to set up an interview, only to call back an hour later...oh, well, I guess you're not as qualified we thought, never mind. Thanks, that really did a lot for my confidence. At another, I had two interviews, cleared the drug, background and physical tests, then get told that the job is on hold. Couldn't you have told me that earlier in the process?
Like this wind-blown cardinal, I sure hope that the seasons are finally changing and that my luck will change with them.
