I don’t believe it would be an outrageous statement if I were to say that today’s highlight was the colonoscopy I had in the morning! Still a pain in the arse, but maybe not quite as much as searching for new job or position. (Kind of reminds me of the old joke, why did the [insert group to be insulted here] keep hitting himself in the head….because it feels so go when he stops) – Same with colonoscopy – because it feels so good to be done with the day-before prep.
Got a rejection letter from an external position I applied to yesterday. That was fun. Actually, it looked suspiciously like an entry-level position and I’m guessing my salary range knocked my resume out of contention. Otherwise, I was more than qualified for the job, or at least I thought so!
I think that’s my advice for today. Don’t settle for a position just to have a position. Know your worth and stay positive. It’s okay to apply for a position that sounds interesting, just don’t think you need to take less money to get it. At least not in the early stages of a job search.
In the words of Stuart Smalley, “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, people like me.” Now, if you’ve never heard of Stuart Smalley, then you probably don’t have to worry about landing on your feet – youth is clearly in your favor! In your vernacular, “google” him for more “inspirational” quotes.
