I Did It!

November 28th, 2007 at 12:54 pm

I just sent off my resume with an on-line job application! Big deal, right?

Well ... In my "career life" I got one job right out of college that I kept for almost 17 years (survived 2 mergers and moved steadily up the ladder); did a couple temp jobs in-between that didn't have very strenuous hiring procedures; then I started my own business.

So, it has been ages and AGES since I sent out a serious resume. Mine was kind of dusty! Feels good to have it dusted off.

Hiring has sure changed quite a bit with the whole on-line application business. [When I got my first job out of college, our office did not even have a PC. We had a typewriter, a fax, and a teletype machine.]

The job I applied for is a temporary government position. I don't know if I'll be offered a job or if I'll even want it if I am offered it, but I thought I'd give it a shot!

I like that it is TEMPORARY. Since we haven't bought a house yet, I don't know what part of Austin we'll be settling in, so I haven't started looking for full-time, permanent work yet. And to tell you the truth I really enjoyed being self-employed, so I may decide to go that route again.

It feels good to have pushed myself to try something new.

    Awesome! It takes guts to step out of your comfort zone and try something new and unfamiliar like that.
