Trudging Along

Well, I've crossed the 30-day threshold and there are really no strong prospects in sight.  Everything that is on deck has a pretty heavy element of doubt...

I was never able to get any sort of response from the agency that sent me on the interview last Thursday.  I've called and I've e-mailed and have been met with resounding silence.  I'm honestly not really sure what to make of it.

I'm not expecting to hear anything in what remains of this week so I am, again, getting ready to start from Square One again on Monday.  Well, that's not QUITE true.  Earlier this week I was contacted about a position that I hadn't heard anything about for over 2 weeks.  I had a phone interview and they wanted someone to start on Monday. And then everything changed and they will be spending the next couple of weeks doing face-to-face interviews.  Of course, it's a job where the commute is an hour, one way.  And I am relatively ok with that but it is not optimal.  Still, it would be a good job.  So, we'll see if it ends up working out.

I fired off more applications today, so in 2-3 weeks should start hearing about those. (That seems to be the standard delay time).

I've got a big project I want to get done tomorrow.  And I have some other things that are overdue, so that will probably keep me busy for the weekend (along with the usual weekend tasks).  Guess I'd better get some sleep!
