Snow flurries outside. 71 degrees here by my computer. Yet I am still freezing (even in a sweater and fleece jacket). I think I'd like some non-florescent lighting down here in the basement. Would that help anything? *shrug*

Phone interview this afternoon for the SysAdmin job at Quest went very quickly. I'm going to interview in person tomorrow at 2:00. I think I might end up meeting with one of the same Linux guys I met with last week. I'm guessing that is a bad thing, but I'm not sure. He may have liked me and the other guy didn't. But it might end up being a short interview, since he really can't ask me the same set of questions I got last week. But maybe he'll ask me more/worse ones. I'll try not to get too worried about it.

I have a phone interview tomorrow morning for a position at SIG in Bala Cynwyd. And a phone interview on Thursday for a position at Comcast in West Chester. I wonder if Michelle still reads my blog?

I don't really want to commute to either Bala Cynwyd or West Chester, but they are positions worth looking into further I guess.

I don't normally get all depressed or whiny in this journal, but the job hunt is taking its toll. In my mind I know that I shouldn't have expected it to be done already, but part of me thought it would. I've only got half a month of severance left, and then it will be just unemployment.

Well, I need to do a little more searching now.  And then I will have to get ready for class.  My next course begins tonight.

As someone said to me soon after I was laid off and worried.. "you're young, talented; you'll land another job." He was right, and that was at the tail end of the "dot com bubble burst". Another point is that you were not laid off because of something you did wrong, or poor job performance. However, it's obviously important to prepare for an interview before going in. During a job interview when I mentioned that I was laid off along with half of the other employees at that location, I was not prepared for the question "why were you in the half that got laid off?"

Are you aware of the following career fair going on tomorrow?

Thanks for the heads up. I had some other phone interviews scheduled that made it not possible to go down there.

Yes, He will provide :-)

Good luck with the job search. I'm continuing to pray for you. The one good thing about this is, at least it's gotten you to post often.

I suppose that is a good thing :-)

How was your birthday?

PS. You have not written since Nov 17th :-p
