Well its been a long time since I had a 9 to 5 type work to go to, and it is frustrating to say the least that I don’t have it as yet to go back to.
I might not have liked the getting to the office or leaving it, but I enjoyed being at a work environment and in general working for that constant paycheck.
I know that harper and what not say that employment is on the rise here in Canada, and that more jobs have been made in Ontario, and even more in Toronto itself. Well I for one would LOVE to see where!
I’ve spent since 2003 sending out resumes from one end of the country to the other end, and save for a handful of replies I’ve gotten nothing to speak of, some odd work here and there that helped put a small dent into my CC debt that only got taken over at a later date more incurred debt, mostly costs towards getting insulin and other medical stuff.
Oh well its life and I am happy that I have it, but sending out resume after resume without much response is getting to be an issue, my skills that I once had though there are not horned on the newest technology that oh so many companies are now asking for, and I can’t upgrade what I have to re-horn those skills without the funds to get the software (and no getting it though illegal means is not a workable option to me). Same with going back to college and updating some of my skills, it can’t happen without the funds to do so.
I know I am not the only one in my field from college who hasn’t gotten work in the field we took at school, but it does feel like I’m the only one who’s not had steady work of any sort since college ended.
I know I have my own business and all and that I am trying to generate leads for work it seems that people in general wont as much as they can get for as little as they can get it for, yes I now its the old getting a good bargain or similar that is in play, but its like what happened to hiring someone who can actually do the work with quality?
Sighs, I know its how things are and I know I don’t need to take it personal and I try not to do so, but at times like now its hard to keep that in mind.
Oh well post more later everyone, take care for now.
