The 100 Day Reality Challenge

Season 1: Day 43 (Jobless *again*...well, sort of)

I'm so bummed out. The job that I thought I had? It was terminated not even 4 hours into my shift :( This was because the company I was temping at did not have the budget for my position, so they called my agency to tell them that they couldn't take me on. I felt sad, because I LOVED the work environment and the people who were training me. I LOVED the purpose of their organization: to assist military personnel and their families to find housing on base. Not just the Army, but other branches of the U.S. military. These are the men and women who are out there, protecting our country, whom I have great respect for.

In any case, I am back to just having my parttime job on Saturdays. I'm not going to change that schedule, because it's just not fair for my bosses of that job to have someone who is inconsistent schedule-wise. It would not be right for me to call my boss today and say "Well, the other job terminated, can I go back to working during the week?" Then when I get a fulltime job, call him back up and say "I'm sorry, I can't work during the week anymore. Can I have the Saturday schedule again?" I would rather be consistently available for him on Saturday than waffle in my schedule, which I think would decrease confidence in me.

So...I found out Monday around lunchtime that I lost the job. Monday night, I put out applications for 6 jobs. Tuesday (yesterday), I put out applications for 10 jobs. Out of the 16 job applications, I got one callback for an interview for an accounting firm. It's scheduled for 2:00pm today. I think my chances of getting that job are slim to none, but I will still go out and interview with them. Today, so far, I've submitted one application. Most of these job postings I've found on Craigslist, but I've had a couple of hits through one of our local televisions stations, who has a link to JobLinks. I put out applications for two jobs through that link.

sooo soon you'll be visualizing yourself in a full tim position, that pays more than enough to meet all of your financial needs!

OUTSTANDING! I have another interview scheduled for tomorrow at 1:30pm. It's for the same school I interviewed for before but didn't get that position, but it's in another department (I think it's HR). It is a temporary position but it will give me WORK until I am able to get something more permanent. WHOOOOOHOOOOOO! So I have today's interview at 2:00pm (not through a temp agency), and then tomorrow's interview at 1:30pm. TYG!!!

Thank you very much, Sunny Side Up. You are right in that what we create becomes our reality. I have been feeling so down lately, and therefore and creating more down feelings for myself. are would be AWESOME to get that job :)

I"m sorry to hear about the job but good luck today Sherry Ann. Some advice? Try not to say "my chances are slim to none" as you will make that your reality. Maybe you want to try what I do when I need to feel more hopeful and positive--"wouldn't it be nice if you got this accounting job!" I think so!
