You would’ve thought that an unemployed person should be able to write more often, no? My blog is so badly neglected I couldn’t remember when was the last time I actually sat down and wrote something decent.
I’ve been unemployed for four months now, although my CV reflects a longer period of inactivity due to the omission of my ill-fated stint at the three-lettered company. Up till now I still don’t know what possessed me to accept that damned job. Anyway my point is, I don’t know what I’ve been busy with. Time seems to just fly by when you’re doing nothing. Well, let’s see. I actually started on a new design for Devilishly Red but the project was abandoned after I was done with the graphics. No surprise there since I’m not an expert in coding.
I’m supposed to research and plan the itinerary for my upcoming trip to Taiwan with the girls but I’ve been too occupied combing through the various job sites to look for a job. Let me tell you, job hunting can be such a pain in the ass. I truly hope I’ll be able to stop doing it soon. Sorry girls, let me settle down first and I’ll try to continue with the research. On the job front, I’ve attended countless interviews, received a few job offers and turned all of them down. I don’t know if I’m being picky but there’s nothing wrong in choosing the job that I think is suitable for me, right? I know there’s no such thing as the Perfect Job but if the job scope/manager/environment is not ideal, I seriously don’t think it’s a good idea to take on the job. Once bitten, twice shy I guess. Sometimes I wonder if I’m being overly cautious because of my previous bad experiences. Now I’ve learned to ask questions on the management style, team dynamics within the department and culture of the company. It doesn’t hurt to be too careful I guess.
Here’s a question for all of you – If given a chance to change your profession, what would your dream job be? Think about it and share your views.
I think I’d like to be a movie critic. Or a video games tester. How cool is that?
