Job search Day 12: Interviews and a mini-vacation

Haven't been doing all that much in regards to job search this week. Neighbor blaring stereo into wall makes me want to destroy his equipment or kill him moreso than look for a job. Been on a few interviews, so didn't have much in the way of desire before or after to really apply for other positions.

Job search Day 8: 25 jobs applied to. Or adventures with auto-apply.

Date: 2/18/08
Position: Instrument Repair Technician
Company/Temp Agency: ITC Medical
City: Roseville
Source: Dunwoody Career Services

Got a response from a Diane Norton last Friday afternoon about the job I put above. She wanted a more thorough explanation of my job history and where I found out about the job. Thing is, I mention where I find the job in the first sentence in the first paragraph in my cover letter. Always do.

Tried a site's auto-apply feature. Good and bad things about it. Good thing is that I applied to quite a lot of positions in just one day. Bad thing is, most of the positions that were applied to, I didn't qualify for or never would apply to in the first place. So, I stopped the auto-apply feature. Means I'll have to do the work myself now, but at least I'll know what I'm applying for.

Since last Wednesday I've applied to 25 positions, which are listed below in chronological order.

Back at it again.... unfortunately

Time to start looking for yet another job. I swear it sometimes makes me so frustrated that it makes me want to go on a rampage.

*groan*

Trying a new thing this time. Am keeping track of all jobs applied to in an Excel Database. It's a little neater than before plus I can keep track of when I apply and how long it's been before a response.

If I apply to at least 5 jobs per day, I'll be happy. Going to do as many as I feel comfortable with each weekday.


Jobs applied to this morning listed below the jump.

Scott Tissue

A few weeks ago, GF™ and I found a coupon for a pack of Scott Tissue in the Sunday Ads section of our local paper. So, we bought a small package just to try it out. Well, we just cracked it open and we both feel it's too thin for our tastes. Feels like I need twice what I normally use to just clean everything. Definitely we are not going to use Scott Tissue again once we use up this pack.

Reminded me of the tissue used in public bathrooms practically everywhere.

Way too thin.

Twelve hours

Twelve hours ago I did something I thought I would never do. At least not in this apartment where I live.

Twelve hours ago, I received a call that I had been fired from my new job.

Twelve hours ago, I became so enraged that I pounded on the wall so hard that I put a hole in it.

New Fish, Cleaning tank and new tank filter!

We went to the store and got another fish to replace the one that died today. Picked up a few new plant decorations, a couple that glow in the dark.

The new fish is a female Gold Twinbar Platy.

We had a bit of a shock when we finished cleaning the rock strata of the tank and filled the tank. Went to go plug the tank filter back in and it didn't work. Nothing happened. Added water, tried the wall socket. Nothing. So, we made an emergency run to Wal-Mart to pick up a new tank filter. Fortunately, they had tank filters in the fish section of the Pet Supplies. Would never get fish from them, however. Their tanks have no decoration for the fish to use or interact with. Not even rock strata. They had a few dead fish in their tanks, but that almost seems normal. Not even much of a selection, though.

So, we grabbed an Aqua-Tech 5-15 Power Filter and rushed home to get it set up. Or else it would have been until after 9am this morning before we would have had a new tank filter set up.

We'll stop by the pet store today and pick up a new tank filter like our old one and swap when we get home. The one from Wal-Mart just bought us some time.

We also tossed our old gallon jugs and picked up 9 new ones. Will be operating on a system of 3 gallons each week. Every 4th week, will do a cleaning of the tank. Tank filter will just be replaced when it's needed.
