I know it hasn’t even been a week yet since I stopped working, but I have to admit to you guys, I’m freaking out. I don’t know what’s coming and I don’t know when it will get here and what I’ll have to do in between. I don’t know what “the right move” is. I don’t know what to do. All I know is what happened last time and I don’t want anything like that to happen again.
What I am doing, is sending resumes everywhere I can think. I check the job boards every day. I have been for months now. I have been telling my friends in the field to “keep an eye out for me.” But during a time when the place you were at can’t keep you, it’s really hard to find anyplace that has space for you. It’s sort of a “one in, one out” thing.
What’s a bit maddening about the whole thing is I chose this field with thought. It has been and is still listed as a “growth industry” for over 10 years (since before I went to school). I also chose it because it was something I wanted to do, but there was that implication that there would be work. Right now, everyone is just fighting to hold onto who they have.
Anyways. If you can spare them, some good thoughts for me would be appreciated. I will think them for you too. Thank you.
