Job Hunt Update

I've sent out lots of resumes only to find that nobody is calling me back. I blame the holidays. Those in charge of hiring are either on vacation or just taking time off. I've applied for unemployment in the very real possibility I won't have a job in January, though I do have one veeery promising interview lined up for December 30th (I know, right?). The other, much scarier possibility is that my job skills are not in demand, and the jobs I want are not the jobs I'm going to get. Sinking to a lower income level is NOT something I want to do. It's also possible that every company that would hire me is going through a hiring freeze, as my company is doing right now. I suppose the scariest thing is that no job interview is a guarantee of employment, and that this interview is taking place literally two days before they punt my carcass out the door at my current job.

NOT a lot of wiggle room there. More as it develops...

I press my thumbs for you... (translation: cross my fingers).

Best of luck with the interview. I'm in a similar position myself, and am finding the lack of call backs a real frustration. We'll get there eventually :)
