So it is day four for the first workweek of being unemployed. I also started spring semester this week as well. My classes this mod are kick ass. I am taking venture financing and evaluating an entrepreneurial opportunity. Obviously these courses are of major benefit to someone looking to go into business for him or herself.
The job search is going, I can’t say that I am out applying for any and every position out there (what few there are). This week I did revise my resume to reflect my desire to remain in commercial real estate; I even included a few technical skills, which will set me a part from the pack on paper. I have a few networking events coming up, beginning next week. Unfortunately this industry (like many) is about who you know.
I am not too worried about finding anything this month. January is the worst time to try and find a new job. What’s funny is; I was in this exact position this time last year (unemployed). Yes, I have issues with keeping a job long. Part of it is due to the fact that I must be my own boss and I also don’t play well in the sandbox with retards in managerial roles. I found my last job in March; of course there wasn’t a major economic crisis either at the time.
My feeling is this; why stress out over things you have no immediate control over. I am not going to worry right now because I don’t have a job. To me it’s truly a blessing. I am blessed to be able to support myself financially while working on some self-development during my time off. My last job gave me unnecessary stress and that is now over. I have a spa appointment tomorrow for four hours (yes).
I am extremely excited about this New Year. After all it is the year of hope and change…
