So the interview wasn’t all that awesome. Sometimes, you can just tell.
I’m trying to stay upbeat, but I also have three big events over the next three days and I’m frankly a bit bummed. I wish there was a way out, or at least a way to get some time off. I have 200 hours of leave owing to me, and a full summer calendar ahead.
One of the things that is playing most on my mind is that I only have a limited window in which to find a new position. If our house building proceeds on schedule, we will need to draw down our new mortgage in late April. In order to be approved for that (it’s part of their conditions) both my husband and I will need to be outside of any 90-day trial period in our jobs. So if I’m starting a new job, I must start it by late January. I also have a 4-week notice period at my current job.
In other words, if I can’t find a new job in the next two weeks, I may as well give up and hang on until after April.
I don’t want to hang on until April. I’m sick and tired of going to work sick and tired. But sometimes there is no choice.
