Frustrated  Posted: 10:55 AM, April 14th (Sunday), 2013View ProfileEdit MessagePrivate MessageHomepage

The company I work for prides itself on being frugal, which translates into salaries on the real low side. It's been a good learning experience, and adds some more skills to my resume, but it's not a company with any growth potential. Which I knew, going into the job. It was always intended to just be a stepping stone.

And my youngest will be 18 next month, and that means no more CS. Budget-wise, things have already been a little tight with the CS. Without it, well, let's just say it's not going to be pretty.

Sigh, I had really hoped to be in a better position financially by this point. I thought I had an almost sure thing on a new job last month, but I guess my sister's old boss was talking out his ass. Which really sucks, because while I wasn't counting on the job, I did at least expect him to interview me, because he told my sister he'd call me. And if I got the job, it would have given me a skill set I could expand on, and have career growth.

Oh well, it is what it is. But what it is, is that now I really need to work on looking for a new job.

I'm mostly just whining here, btw. I'm hoping if I get the whining out of my system here first, I'll be more likely to start looking at the job search sites again.

I hear you. I'm looking, too. It takes a lot of activation energy to keep looking at those job sites, day after day.

Good luck to both of you!

The job market is opening up here. My optometrist said when they advertised for a receptionist last year, they got 99 replys. This year, they only got 20.

Networking is great, but I'm sure you can find opportunities on line. Do you use indeed.com? They aggregate from all of the jobsites and also directly from employers.

Let me know if I can help in any way.

ETA: On indeed, you can set up email alerts; they send you the jobs that match your request.

I've got alerts from indeed and simplyhired set up, and have been scanning those on and off for the past couple of months. But I haven't been actively applying, yet.

The job I was hoping to get was an entry level document control position, so my resume is tweaked for that. I need to do an updated admin assistant version, since I just took over some new responsibilities at current job.
