Merry Job-Hunting!

It’s officially the holiday season. Time for partying, shopping, and gift-giving. Not the time for job-hunting, right?

Wrong. At least according to this article I found today, which suggests ways to keep up your search during the holiday season: Tips for Job-Hunting During the Holidays

It’s my birthday …

with one comment

… and I’ll job hunt if I have to, job hunt if I have to, you would job hunt too if you were unemployed too ….

So far, I’ve spent my favorite day of the year (besides the holidays, that is) filling out an application for a job I would really like to have. Instead of the retail and administrative assistant jobs I’ve spent the past few weeks frantically applying for in order to just survive.

Of course, I’ve written this latest application in between checking my Facebook page and email for birthday wishes. 😉

Maybe it’s lucky to fill out an application and write a cover letter on your birthday. I certainly hope so.

Anyway, once I finish the application, I’m taking myself to the movies. I’d like to see Julie & Julia (which happens to be about a woman who blogs and cooks to change her life), but it doesn’t open until tomorrow. So I’ll see something else instead.
