Job hunting in the time of Covid


Recommended Posts

Months later, I got an offer. It’s a pay cut but I’d rather take a pay cut and not be miserable. And this is getting into a company I want to join.

Oh crap I actually got the job.

Well, it looks like I’m skipping the first two levels of interviews for the claims job. Doing it online tomorrow, and hopefully they’ll offer me a job soon. Of course I have to survive COVID but that’

I hope it goes well, Ender! I have an interview tomorrow morning for a job maintaining and updating contracts for a property management company. Basically stuff that an attorney would do, but who

Thanks! With my current job, I was pretty much maxed out on where I could go. My current boss has poisoned my career and was trying to fire me, so starting over in a company with lots of room for growth is fine.  And I can apply for promotions in 6 months. So I can spend 6 months kicking ass and then use that to catapult into something different.

We've had some ups and downs in the last year too.

My wife got let go from her job of almost fifteen years back around May.   Museum attendance plummeted, and attendance for their camps basically went to zero overnight.  It sucks, but she'd in theory be one of the first back if things ever pick back up enough.  I don't think anyone is counting on that though.

I've heard firsthand from her how tough it is.  For the places that have money to hire, it's definitely a buyer's market because there are so many mid-career professionals looking for work who got cut this last year.  Some remote work is available, but when you work in PR for an organization like she did, you really have to be on the ground to really make it work.

In good news though, we've both made it through a few rounds in the process for civil servant jobs at KSC in Florida.  I basically just applied this time around to get my name in the hat for when things really pick up in the upcoming years.  I really want to be down there when Artemis gets going.  But we'll see.  The way things are only just now finally coming out of stasis, I'm not really planning on anything in the next year or two that I don't entirely control.

I think management may not be allowed to contact you while you're on medical or family leave. At least that's how it works at my company.

I've talked to her a couple times before this, so it's distinctly weird.
