A little update...

Still job hunting, but now having more time to do this during my unemployment is fantastic!  I'm seeing one of those career transition reps, and it's been a real help, as things have changed tremendously during the 12+ years it's been since I last did up a resume.  Holy crow, that's a long time!  Trust me folks, you may want to consider updating any resume you may have - not as a just-in-case, but simply so you can remember to write down every skill (soft and technical) you pick up / learn over time.  If anything, it'll serve as a great reminder of just how awesome you really are, and prove to you that you know more than you think.  A great confidence booster during tough times.

Over a month has gone by since I became redundant.  I've been focusing most on getting the extra flotsam and jetsam of paperwork and articles I'd kept over time thinking it might be useful.  Did I mention that I'd become a bit of a hoarder over the past 10 years or so?  Not TV-worthy, but enough that I've run out of room in my room for my stuff.  SO, I've been shredding, donating, and recycling like crazy over the past few weeks, ad still have more to go.  Sooner or later I'll have to get the proposed shop going on Etsy - why not make a buck or two while clearing out?  Goodness knows I've shopped on Etsy enough to have learned a few things *lol*

Anywho, must get back at this whole resume / company research / job hunting well as playing around on Etsy and Pinterest.  ;)



  1. Way to go on getting so much tidying and organizing done during this transitional period between jobs, sweet lady. I love a good fall clean out, in fact, I'd say it even trumps spring's for me, as I really (!) like to ensure that we head into the long Canadian winter with our little abode looking as spic and span, and organized, as possible during those hibernation filled months. :)

    That's wise advice about staying on top of one's resume. Thank you for the reminder to do so, even if you're not hunting for a new job at the moment. Speaking of which, I truly hope that one comes your way on the double and that it's something you really enjoy.

    Big hugs & happy tail end of November wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

  2. Good luck! Hurray for the positive mood.
