You know how I was boasting about how I was such a good job-seeker, I should get a raise? (No? That might have been on Twitter. It definitely happened.) Well, I’ve recently let my high standards slip a little. To the extent where I hadn’t even touched my little grey book since last Tuesday :o! Not because I hadn’t done anything – although I have let a few days go by without me applying – but because I didn’t bother filling it in. the result is, of course, that I had to play catch-up today. Well, I didn’t have to do it today – I could have waited until my next appointment but I haven’t quite sunk to the level of last-minute-scribbling-on-the-bus yet. Who am I kidding – I could never sink to that level.
But I still need to pull my proverbial socks up. It’s getting to the point, now, where I find all these vacancies, type them into Evernote and when I get around to applying (I’ve got a big back-log) they’ve vanished. Poof! Before the deadline. Now that’s just cheating. You can’t move the deadline and not tell anyone. What’s the point in having a deadline if you’re just going to ignore it? Gah.
So, yes, I need to catch up and start applying on the day I see the advert. We’ll see how that goes.
