I bet that by the title, you probably think I am writing about how my dog has separation anxiety… Nope. The opposite actually.
I am starting work tomorrow and am already feeling separation anxiety from Arko! This is so sad and a bit embarrassing but I am really going to miss the bugger. I have always been obsessed with him, but these past 8 months of being unemployed, I have become even more attached and obsessed with my little baby! Ok, he is not so little, he is almost as tall me in full length and weighs close to a 100 lbs, but still! He is little to me.
So after almost 8 months of being unemployed, searching for jobs, applying and then getting rejected or getting unreasonable offers, I am going to be employed!! And best of all, it is for a great organization!!
I have been looking for a job for 7 months. In fact, it was 7 months this past Friday. I have had little to no luck. Currently unemployed, I have applied to probably 100+ jobs and have had 14 interviews. I was offered one job at a hospital foundation, but the offer was just so low, almost disrespectful, that I had to decline. Let’s just say I got paid that amount when I was 17 working in a kitchen. Since I come from a non-profit background, money is not the main factor, the passion and love for the sector is. However, I had to decline that particular position because it was just impossible for me survive off of that. Besides this, I have gotten no offers and It has been bringing me down.
