If you follow this blog, you’ve probably noticed a few things:
- I’ve been lazy about posting comics.
- I’ve posted a lot about networking and job searching lately.
- This post was published this past Friday, I am re-publishing it because I forgot to attach the image.
And you are absolutely correct!
In regards to #1, I’ve been extremely busy with my transition after my promotion. On the bright side of things it’s going great. Last month was an on-boarding/training. This week I have spent 2 days in my new job and 3 days finishing training someone to backfill for me. Next week I should be on my normal shift (which will be 3pm-1am… much better for me IMO) and supervising my team.
Before my promotion I was busy with some other work responsibilities. After a long week of blogging and work I just didn’t feel like putting another 30 minutes in to get the comic post up. Thirty minutes seems pretty insignificant but I guess I haven’t been managing my time the greatest. And on top of that, my g/f (the creator of the comics) has also been extremely busy with job applications. I think she just passed the 60th application mark. Ouch. Applying for teaching jobs doesn’t seem fun! On the bright side of things… she now has her full-time job.
In regards to #2, with my girlfriend sending out over 60 applications and me getting a promotion, obviously the job search, interviewing, and networking have been on my mind. Knowing the right things have helped both of us greatly so I try to write about those topics every now and then!
There are a ton of intricacies and minute details that are applicable to only some people’s situations, so I try and touch on them here and there.
One thing that seems pretty consistent, though, is how we all get worked up over the job search! This comic is real funny because it pretty much mimics some of the conversations I have had with my girlfriend :)
Enjoy the comic and have a good weekend!
