The job hunt is back on…

Not in full effect, but it is.

After experiencing bouts of extreme job-related malaise, I decided to take things into my own hands (again) and start back sending out those job applications.

To this end, I have sent out 3 applications for the month of July. Two were agencies, (that want you to pay a fee and send in your photo, references etc…been there, done that), and one was in the newspaper, and I sent out that one last Friday.

On the advice of a friend, I called them (the newspaper ad) this morning to find out if they got my application and they said no, to send it again. Lo and behold, when I was sending it again, another friend hailed me out on Google Talk and when I told them what I was doing and who I was sending it to, they said they knew someone at the company and would mention me to them. Trinidad too choonky again…

So I’m happy at the moment. :D

I’m not resting on my laurels though, (das a real funny saying eh? “resting on my laurels”…anyhoo…) and I’m still on the look out for a new job.

I’m currently pursuing my LCCI Marketing diploma, with exams in November (studying fuh dat go be a next toree in itself, since meen like nuttin name study) and the lecturer told us in class last week, that we shoulda started studying like yesterday!

So if I missing in action more so than usual, it probably means I’m studying. Or maybe not.

Afro why do you need to send a pic with your resume? Is a modeling job they think you are applying for. Sometimes I have to wonder if Trinidad have any type discrimination laws in place.
Good luck on the job hunting.
