I would have never in a million years think that word would apply to me, but yet it does. For the first time since I started working (right out of school) at age 17, I now find myself unemployed.
It's been just about a month now and after taking a breather one week, a mini vacation to Tobago the next, scratching while playing Sims 3 (it REAL BAD! btw), I am now volunteering at the Trade and Investment Convention at Center of Excellence Macoya. I've also been keeping busy doing a small graphic design course which I had signed up to do while I was still employed.
I've only sent out one job application (had an interview out of that one) and forwarded my resume to a friend, I've been taking a real laid back approach to looking for a new job. I don't think I can scratch for very much longer though and I definitely need to be looking for something (so I can pay my mortgage) soon.
(Unless someone can tell me ow to get paid while playing Sims!)
So after this week I think I'm definitely going to get a bit more aggressive in my job search. Wish me luck!...better yet, if you hear of any jobs you think I would be perfect for...you can drop me a line!
