Job Search, Job Search, When Will You End
By gerene0313 on July 14, 2013
Since April Fool's Day (note the irony) of 2012, I have been job searching. In some form or fashion since I received my MS in Counseling, I have been in the Student Affairs field. From Residential Life to Academic Advising, to Career Services to a position that had me wearing every hat and then some.
In April I was laid off and have been looking ever since. In addition to being laid off, I will let you know that the last three years I've been in acute crisis. My dad passes, his sister dies ten months prior, and I went from a manageable 4 pills a day to 20 for controlling epilepsy. There's more- due to the acute stress I developed stress alopecia and I'm still waiting for the hair to grow back.
Naturally I don't share all this sunshine in an interview, but I'm guessing I project it. I know I need a job asap.
