Happy Hunting... My Rear!

I was so excited the day I graduated from Stephens.  I thought, "now I will finally be able to ride more, I'll get a full time 8 to 5 Monday through Friday job and have the entire weekends to myself!"  WRONG!!!!

Now it's almost July, I've had one interview and never got a return phone call from it and I just found out today I didn't even get an interview for a position change in a department I've worked in for the last two years!

I've applied for probably ten State jobs and haven't heard anything back from any of them and I'm going in two days to sit down for like five hours to take some crazy required written exams for three of those jobs.

If you can't tell by now I'm REALLY frustrated.  I guess if I wasn't tied to this area it would be easier to find a job but we've bought a house and my husband already has a career which he can't just pick up and leave from.

So now I'm stuck working full time hours for part time pay at a department that doesn't even want to give me a chance to change positions because I apparently had a bad interview over a year ago as well as working part time at another department but only being able to work the hours no one else wants or when someone calls in sick or wants a vacation day.  Which includes working over nights, working double shifts (both jobs in the same day), and working almost every weekend.

I guess the only upside to the situation is I don't have to go back to class, downside... I'm afraid we're going to lose everything!  Obviously these part time jobs do not pay enough to cover everything and with buying a new house and what not the extra bills are really starting to freak me out.  The stress is mounting and I'm just not sure what to do about all of it now....  HELP!!!


  1. Just popped over from Hay Net to congratulate you on your blog being being made blog of the day over there. Sorry to read about your job frustrations, it's very difficult in the current economic climate.

  2. Thanks for the comment! I'm happy to say I HAVE finally received a full time job, only a couple of days ago actually. I start in two weeks (so long as the background check comes through haha!).
