I'm going to take a bit of divergence from my usual cross stitch nattering. I need some support more than anything.
While I'm blessed to have a job at the moment, I have been for the past year searching for something else. Something that is gratifying and something that inspires me. I have spurts of those moments where I'm at right now but... well lets just say it's just not fast paced enough. Add this too the fact that I'm on 3month contracts, with the fear of not being extended whenever the deadline approaches. Now the time is starting to creep upon me once more where I feel like I'm in a perpetual state of limbo, never knowing if I'm going to be here one day and gone the next. So I've been looking... but there's hardly anything showing up on the job boards that reflects the skills I have! I've just applied to my first job in over 6 months!!! That's how sparse the job market in my given field is. I'm feeling hugely insecure about it all at the moment... and part of me is dreading the day when I can't find a job before my contract ends.
Am I hopeless no... but as a new entrant into the labour force I never imagined it being this hard to find a secure(ish) job!!! I have the education, I have experience, I have the charisma, WHAT MORE CAN THEY WANT????? Yet no call backs, no interviews....
Hopefully I'll have good news soon to share... SOMETHING HAS GOT TO GIVE!
