Sound off

If I hear one more person say I don't need to worry about my job situation because I'm extremely 'hireable', I think I will scream.

I know they are just trying to be reassuring but it is not helping. I have been looking high and low for six weeks now - revising my resume, writing the best cover damn cover letter ever, spending hours on the internet scouring for jobs, sending out literally dozens of resumes, networking my little fanny off and not a single, flipping phone call. Not even a wrong number.

My head knows that I am blessed because we are fine financially without my income. Things could definitely be worse. But my ego is not too fond of the idea of being labeled 'unemployed', even for a short period of time. I take a lot of pride in the things I have accomplished and where I've managed to get in my five short years with my company. It is hard to imagine starting over somewhere else and being a nobody again.

Okay, rant over.

Rant as much as you want! I can totally understand how you feel. I've been there and I know how frustrating it is... and I'm going to be there again very soon. Maybe we should all get together and feel sorry for ourselves =)

That's terrible! I know that they are just trying to make you feel better and I know you very 'hireable', but there are alot of people out their look! I know it can take forever to find a position, but the right one is out there some where! Good luck with your search! Have a great weekend!
