Another Post About Finding Work

Even though I’ve been in Oregon for about 2 years now. I have looked and applying for jobs for most of this time, and there were a couple of places that I got an interview at. Yet at each interview that I did I somehow screwed things up during the interview. It’s either the way that convey information, drawing a blank about stuff, or saying not enough to the interviewer while during the interview.

This last week I had an interview, and the person said they would be in touch this week; which I doubt that they will be.

One of the thing’s I need to improve the way I conduct my self in interviews when I’m able to get an interview. I also need to improve the gathering of information about companies before I have an interview. I know that there are ways to improve one self for the interview process, and since I’m taking classes, I’ll be looking into these workshop’s for help. I just need to look for these workshops at the school that I’m attending at, or through the state employment center’s.

There are other factors that go when I’m applying and getting interviews for jobs, but I won’t really mention them here now, or anytime soon.
bye for now….

Finding Work

Note: This is cross posted with this post.

For most of the year I’ve been putting in applications to a lot of companies with no luck. I’ve gotten an interview with one company but wasn’t offered a position that I had an interview with.

With the amount of time passing by I don’t know if I would be able to get a job. I know I could go to school and further what ever knowledge that I have, but at this point its just going to keep my busy and there’s a possibility of not being able to get a job after getting a degree of some kind.

It seems like that I have a constant run of bad luck over the last 6 years or so. I’ve been a caregiver for the 10 or so years – which had been a full time job (at least 50+ hours) in which I wasn’t paid for. I was caregiver for a relative with a some what limited income during this time. Not being paid to be a caregiver which is “screwing” me over in a few ways. The obviously way is preventing me from me getting hired on at company in Oregon.

All I want is to find work someplace and save some money to live on. Granted the way the job market is happens to be an “employers market.”

Seems like that I’m looking in all of the wrong places or answering those “assessment” the wrong way on online applications.

I even put in for McDonald’s and I don’t know if I’m going to hear from them. If I don’t, I just wonder what’s wrong on how I’m approaching on filling out applications or whatever related to filling out applications. Don’t know if that made any sense but whatever.

Anyways, all I want to do is to work and go to school …. is that to much to ask. Seems that no matter on what I try to improve my life seems all I get are road blocks of some fashion. It’s like that I shouldn’t have left Alaska in the first place, even though I got really tired of the cold, snow and the long nights.

later…..
