Banner Week for the Job Search
I have completed three in person interviews this week, two alone today. I have another in person interview, tomorrow, and am trying to schedule a phone call to talk to someone I didn’t get to meet at my interview on Monday. These are all new prospects that have just developed in the last couple of weeks.
A couple of people I have talked to have remarked that many people looking for work right now are failing to secure any interviews. When I start to feel anxious about being unemployed and not having any reasonable offers, yet, this thought gives me some comfort. It also validates my theory that I am as strong a candidate as in past searches but that job market is very depressed and moving very slowly.
As far as I can tell, all of the interviews this week so far went well. The one this morning will require a second interview which I hope to secure and schedule this week. The one tomorrow morning also will require a second interview and I am equally optimistic about that.
Given this spike, it seems reasonable I may have some solid options by the end of the month. I am broadening my search and considering more leads than I normally would to increase my odds. Hopefully I can pin down a few more interviews next week to keep the momentum going until I have something firm in hand.
