And work sucks, too. Just sayin…
I’m at the point of having a love-hate relationship with my jobs. Yup. Both of em.
One I like what I do. When I’m left alone long enough to do it. Revamping the website/SEO, social media, and blogging. Plus updating the courses and checking grades. It’s rewarding; I’m getting results, views are up on the site and blog. Followers have doubled on Twitter and tripled on FB. Students are very happy. And that’s a great feeling. But like I said, 9 times of 10, I’m not left alone long enough to get much of anything accomplished.
My other job, well, that one I do not care for at all. Not in that the work sucks, but in that there’s barely ever enough to keep me busy for 1/4 of my scheduled hours. I don’t work we’ll like that.
S’anyways, I had an interview yesterday. I was confused from the get-go. The email said “I see you want to expand your experience in Internet marketing. We may have a position for you”. In sales. Uhm, huh?
If you know me at all, that statement would make you laugh in itself. Short funky hair, gaged ears, visible tattoos. Not really salesman material, if you get my drift. But I went anyway. Kind of a waste of time. And gas. Not even gonna lie. And I don’t think my resume or cover letter shows ANY interest in sales at all, aside from listing sales classes as core courses.
What’s my point?
I read a really cool article the last night. About job hunting. One of the key points was to not settle for something you don’t want. Don’t take an interview just because its an interview (shoulda read that a week ago, before I accepted the interview).
The only problem this poses, for my location and I, anyways, is that there isn’t much for me. And I’m not that finicky, fairly easy to get along with. I don’t mind working for someone as long as its in my field of interest, but I don’t want to be someone’s bitch, either.
I do have my freelance work. And I LOVE it. But it’s not enough to bring home the bacon.
Hopefully my interview tomorrow for webdesign and social media goes well, even though it’s only part time.
*Sigh* I’m getting frustrated already and have just gotten back into the hunt. Just gotta keep telling myself to be thankful I have a job. 2, at that. 🙂
