Still on the job

Hey! Guess what? That job they offered three months ago? I’m still doing it. And I’m liking it.

It’s a proposal manager job at a national I.T. company. I’ve been nervous about passing that three month probationary period because my career history over the past five years has really shaken my confidence.

But I’m still there after three months and I dig it. I do not miss going to the office at all. And I couldn’t go anyway because my “office” is in suburban Toronto.

So that’s my update. How are you guys?


More Job Huntin’

I just had what I think was my best interview since I lost my job in February. It’s a remote job for an IT firm to act as a proposal writer, which I’ve done in bits and bobs at my other jobs.

There will be a second interview, if I move on, in front of a panel, which is slightly terrifying and I’ll really need to get back into gear with my Word and PowerPoint skills but that’s what offline learning is for.

They keep saying Canada is in the best labour market ever but boy, you wouldn’t know it from my perspective. In the perspicacious words of Ms. Olivia Rodrigo, it’s brutal out here.
