Candid Teacher Admits: Though I dislike the tedious process of applying for jobs, I actually secretly enjoy it. It gives me a high to think, “Who will love me on paper today?’
It’s difficult to apply for jobs and wait, hoping the phone will ring, to find that nobody calls. However, it’s slightly addicting to get a multitude of phone calls. It makes me feel wanted, even though it is only on paper. I enjoy writing and editing resumes and get a kick out of making my skills sound even better than they truly are. Is that deceitful, or just good marketing?
Oh well, no matter what it is, I do hope I get to go on at least one interview – if only for the thrill of it. Am I the only one who feels this way? Though it’s never fun to be without a job (as I’ve found out already!!), it is fun to have the “courtship” of finding one. And I must say, if I can apply online, it’s even better! Click, and it’s in… very little effort is required once the application materials are together. What a beautiful thing.
