Update

Here’s a quick update:

September 2016 – end of contract.

I worked as an assistant grader during the fall 2016 semester at the local college. 

In March I wrote and created several play books for a local Tech hub.

March and April found me developing curriculum, instructional plans and all associated documents for 5 courses.

Currently, I’m going through the process of phone interviews and in-person interviews with several companies, for contract work.
Most recently I’ve been rejected for a specific role. This leads me to ask if it’s time to toss in the towel and find a new field.

I’ve been searching for the full time, permanent job for 12 years. I’m tired of applying and interviewing, only to be rejected.

A Girl Back on the Hunt

We’re back at it. My contract ended September 2016.

I was working part time until the middle of December.

So I’m back on the hunt. This time around I’m finding more jobs to apply for. Is it because I’m checking more places, there are more jobs out there, or that I’m qualified for more?

Interviewed!

So I interviewed for PR gig this week. It’s the first time in a long time that I’d interviewed for a relevant gig. Over a year.

I think it went well. It was the most relevant interview I’ve had. The gig was for a PR position at my current company.

However I think they have someone in mind for the position.

We’ll see.

Contract extension!

So I started my position in December of 2014. Since them I’ve had my contract extended when it finished in September. The new end date was in December of 2015.

With a co-worker leaving they asked me to take on their role. So I’ve been doing that.

This week my immediate boss came to me and through an awkward conversation, they’ve decided to extend my contract again until April 1. Because I’ve been on contract for over a year, HR has decided to extend benefits to me.

I haven’t had benefits since April of 2005.

Needless to say, I celebrated!

An Update of Sorts

So I realize it’s been a long time since I updated this. So here’s a quick update.

Still at my current position. But on Friday, I got confirmation that the area where I work is being restructured.

I was confused at first, but now there are several new opportunities to take advantage of. There’s a new assistant manager position, a new coordinator position and a new support coordinator position. It’s my understanding that the role I’m doing now, will be phased out. Now’s a great time to mention that I’m on a contract that’s ending very soon.

My plan is to apply for the new positions. I think I could handle doing at least 2 of these new positions without much trouble.

So big changes are coming, but it’s going to take some time to get it all figured out.

Job status update

Turns out it’s been almost a year since I blogged here last.

Here’s a brief update:

-I had my contract extended twice.
-But at the end of April I finished the end of the final contract. I was deemed “redundant” which is a humiliating designation. But just meant that the position I was doing was changed into a slightly different role and they hired someone else.

So I’m back looking for a new job. If you hear of available positions in marketing, communications, or public relations please feel free to pass them along.
