And Then There Was One

by Lawyer Working Girl

Last week was a good week and a bad week. The good news is that one of my friends/colleagues got a new job making more money and with a better title. The bad news is that she left me and now I'm all alone! *insert tears* Let me back up a bit...

Not too long after I started working here, I became good friends with three women here. Not only did we chat at work, but we also hung out after work and on weekends. Then it happened. One of my friends got a new job. Then it happened again. Another friend transferred to an office in a different city. And last week it happened yet again. The last friend put in her notice and now she's gone. *insert more tears*

It's funny how when one person leaves others start to get the itch to leave. I'm going to be honest. I've got that itch REAL bad. Ok, let me be really honest. I've had the itch for a while, but now I feel a sense of urgency about it. And I'm not the only one.

Why am I ready to leave? Well, one reason is that I'm so ready to do something that makes me happy. I've talked about it before so I will spare you guys a little. I envy those who enjoy going to their jobs everyday. I want that to be me! The second reason is that I miss my old city. I'm ready to move back. Whenever I go for a visit, it's always hard to come back.

So, now I'm on a mission to find the perfect job for me (of course, working for myself would be the BEST, so the perfect job for me that involves working for someone else). I'm keeping my fingers crossed that things happen for me pretty quickly.

Working Girls, are any of you job hunting? If so, how's it going?

Good luck with your job hunt! I hope you find something that you like. I'm studying to be a professor, and I do love teaching. But since summer's coming up, I have to start looking for a summer job. Unfortunately, the only ones available are the ones that pay low wages and require me to stand for several hours a day while being extra cheerful with customers (kind of like a robot would).

I hope you find what you are looking for. I have the itch as well. I need something stable with routine. Good luck to you!

I've been actively hunting since February, so not terribly long by job-hunt standards, but it feels like it's been more than just the past three months. Finding a job always comes with challenges. Finding a job as a professional actor makes those challenges seem like child's play. All I can say is, no matter how the job hunt goes, I know what I want to do, and that is what makes me get up in the morning and enjoy my work. So I wish you the same, and hope that your hunt for better/more fulfilling employment is a little easier than mine!

Terribly. I seem to sort-of fit in with a lot of jobs, not enough that I want to try super hard to get it, and not enough for them to call me.

The few that have been a good fit have resulted in no interview. It depresses me, and with each "the position has been filled" email, I am more saddened to show up at my current job.

I just landed a great job, after searching for 8 months, I went on 7 interviews and had three offers come in all in the same week. It was an empowering experience! After I left my last job, three peopled ended up leaving within one month. Good luck on your search!
