Job Hunting

So I’ve been job hunting since July 11th and have had very little luck. Most places don’t even call/e-mail back. The market is terrible and although I’m a very talented person, it’s just been rough. Luckily my former employer has kept me on contract.

That changed today. I’ve been praying that God “drop” a job in my lap — that He just provide one for me so I would know it was Him and where He wanted me to go.

This morning I got an e-mail about a webmaster position. It looked like a good fit so I sent off my cover letter/resume (the same one that has yielded zero results so far). I had a call back within hours, and an e-mail a few hours later.

Here’s where it gets crazy: The person who I will interview with and would work under… is my friend’s dad. So tomorrow I get to call my friend’s dad and arrange an interview. How cool is that?

The main office is 5-10 minutes away, and I love the vibe of their web sites (cool, clean, simple, beautiful).

I’m super excited. Please pray for me — I would love to get this job!

    Hi, It is 12:45 am, September 27, 2006. I’m a 63 year old woman with a lot of life left. I’ve needed a job for over a year. I typed into the computer, “drop a good job in my lap”, and the above article appeared. How did you job turn out? Do you have any comments??

    I did not get the job mentioned in the post, but that’s a good thing, because I got a much better job!

    Instead of working on a mortgage website (bo-ring) I work for a Christian Book Printer. In the 2 years I’ve been here I’ve changed positions a few times and now do new business development and am planning to move overseas to spearhead a new division of the company.

    So, it turned out really well, just not the way I thought it would. But God does that a lot- He gives us what we need instead of what we want 😉


    Don’t lose hope — the right job will come in the right timing.

    Sorry is that sounds pithy, but it happened to me- my contract was running out and my current position came along just in the nick of time.

    If you’re looking for practical advice, I’m not sure I can help. I’m 27, have never been unemployed, and jobs just keep falling in my lap. Sickening, I know 😉
