This may bore some but I figured I'd share, (also I need to get the "how I was laid off" story off my chest because its still bothering me..)

This is what I have accomplished this week (April 5-11)

*Interviews with Recruiters (temp and perm) on Monday and Wednesday

*Applied to about 15 different positions in the Boston area via monster/craigslist (live on edge of city)

*Posted new resume on Monster and Craig's list

*Applied to CVS & Target

*Had interview with CVS on Friday for 16 hrs a week part time and just waiting on the results of my "backround check" (*rolls eyes* that Secret clearance is doing me NO good right about now..) Should hear back from manager by Wed- he loved me so I may be in training as early as Thurs/Fri of this upcoming week

*Filed for unemployment- been hearing tons of horror stories that there's a three month backlog of people waiting for their first check

*Watched wayyyyy too much trashy tv/movies

*Slept too much!

So I'm waiting to hear back on Target, CVS and other Recruiters. Have an interview with a 3rd one on Wed @ 2pm.

Aaaand tomorrow I'm being forced to do a major spring cleaning of the apt by the roommate...argggg hate cleaning!

Ok that's it for now- hope everyone is doing well!

Hi All!

I'm getting ready for my first interview with a recruiter...you may be wondering why? Well I was let go from my job at the Government Contractor on Friday. I'm already doing all I can to get another job as I was only given my final paycheck and thats it. I cannot file for unemployment till Friday because my past employer hasn't told the state that I don't work there anymore..*sigh* And when I do finally get signed up for unemployment there is at least an 8 week backup before getting the first check. Soooo...since I have rent to pay I better get my butt in gear!

The actual "letting go" part from the former job was so cold. I had expected more from them, but then again the Government is quite cold. They are very picky as to who they have working for them, they have to be a certain "type" of person- and quite frankly I wasn't as tough as everyone. Just about everyone was former military, or had experience with the Government prior to working for the Contractor. (cannot say the name of the company due to Security reasons)

So I'll chalk it up that it was good experience and even though its a crappy time to be out of work, I'm confident that my skills and awesome charm will prevail- and land me another job, hopefully quickly.

So I will be using this journal to document the progress, stay tuned!
