Applying for jobs just plain out stinks.
I have a good job, and I happen to like it, so you wonder why am I trying to change careers at this point in my life. After all, I am 45, have been a teacher for about 20 years, and am in a very good school district. Yet, I want to change fields and break into administration and possibly throw my whole life into a frenzy.
I have been on a few interviews, and felt that I nailed that part of the process, only to find out that I hadn’t. That gets a bit frustrating, and more than a bit discouraging. I feel like Enzo Hernandez, a lifetime .199 hitter, I can get to the plate, but haven’t hit the ball, and when I do hit it solidly, it gets grabbed.
So, I took a few weeks off from applying, and then faced myself and asked again if I wanted to go into a new field, and said yes. Hence, I am sending out about six more resumes tomorrow. Maybe one will hook me into a job.
Applying for jobs, just sucks.
