The hunt

Back at the beginning of April I left my job as a nanny of two in order to pursue a "career." I planned on taking a month off to collect myself and recover a bit from the emotional stress I had been under and in the meantime search for a new job. For those of you who are terrible with math, it is now almost five months later and I sit here still searching for a job, forget about a career.

I have a degree in Elementary Education but have been struggling with whether or not that is still the path I want to take. A lot about me has changed since choosing that career path and I am just not sure if it is for me anymore. Not that it would matter since teaching jobs are some of the most difficult to find right now anyway.

So I have been applying for other jobs. Like secretary type stuff. And some teaching jobs at private schools. Front office positions. Anything that doesn't require the phrase "would you like fries with that?" or "our tank tops are two for twenty dollars!" Me and retail don't get along and I would rather not work anywhere that required a hair net and gave me (even more) pimples.

Five months into the job hunt, dozens of resumes sent out, and only two interviews. Awesome. One of those interviews sent me away as soon as I walked in. Not because my appearance frightened them but because they had just filled the position. The second one went wonderfully. But I didn't get it.

Being a SAHW (stay at home wifey) isn't nearly as respectable as being a SAHM. So the hunt continues. And the hunt? It's not so fun.

In the meantime, I will be locked away in my sewing room, pretending like it pays the bills :)
