My deadline is fast approaching (four days, to be exact), and I still can’t face the thought of having to leave the area. The good news is that there are lots of irons in the fire right now – on the strength of a telephone interview yesterday I have a face to face interview on Friday, coupled with an interview tomorrow and another on Thursday at other companies.

I had a third interview at a firm last Wednesday, which I’m STILL waiting to hear back on. I was quite hopeful about that job but given the length of time now elapsed I’m not optimistic any more, so I’m concentrating my efforts elsewhere. Luckily, the consultant who put me forward for that position has submitted my CV for another contract role starting on Monday.

In a nutshell, that’s it. I have to say in all my years of being employed/job hunting, I’ve never known the market to be this bad. Despite the reports on the news about how the economy is meant to be picking up, I don’t believe a word of it. People are staying in their jobs and those who don’t generally don’t appear to be replaced, especially on the administrative support side of things.

Still, as I mentioned in a previous blog (“The mindset”), it’s important for me to remain positive, so here I am, staying hopeful. The fat lady hasn’t quite sung yet…
