You know the other day I was thinking that I could use another blog. I have one that's strictly about my house building experience which isn't much thus far but still. I'd like to talk about other things too and this is a proper outlet for such things. I'm bored with my job. I like it pretty much and it pays well but it's been slow lately. I *hate* the projects my manger comes up with which is moving stuff from one place to another only to move it back in a couple of weeks. A monkey could do it and probably enjoy it more. So I've been job hunting and I applied for a really good one but haven't heard anything either way on it. Patience isn't my strong suit. I'm trying really hard to keep my hopes up though and not think negative thoughts. My best friend says thinking negatively about it is the best way not to get the job. I'm also looking for another place to live. The place where I'm at is okay. The neighbors are quiet. Still I want to be closer to my building project. Also closer to my sitter. With gas prices the way they are driving fifty miles round trip a day is costly. So that's where I'm at. Job hunting, rental hunting, waiting to start building my house, and waiting to hear on a better job. I feel like I'm in limbo sort of...looking, waiting, and hoping.

What I have found interesting, is that in almost every case, the jobs I have had found me through someone else. My first employer was recommended to me by my High School electronics teacher. My current one I landed thanks to my Mom talking to a local business to who she was selling a phone book ad. To me, the most powerful tool in job hunting is networking. Let ALL your friends and family know that your on the career prowl. Let them know what your looking for and what you can do. They just might find someone who needs to hire. I've even done the same for my friends. I think this works better, because most business get their first idea of a potential worker on a paper resume. Or a mysterious phone call. People aren't paper. What they can really get excited about is hearing another person talk about the candidate. After all, it's how we usually learn about other people. Good luck on the hunt! I had to move states to find what I was looking for. Don't fear change!
