Well, the interview went very well. I made it to the next phase. I will be interviewed again next week and will know if I have this job by mid point of next week. I believe it is between me and one other candidate. Fingers crossed! This would be a job supporting an organization that matters.

But, for now, it is back to “the pavement” and continue to apply for other jobs. I’ve applied to so many jobs and met with so many agencies. I ended with the agencies after registering with 17 of them. I couldn’t even keep up with all the business cards. And, I stopped counting the number of jobs to which I have applied when I hit 280.

You know, in truth, my job search is going well. I’ve only been looking since the second week in May and am getting lots of “bites” with the “bait” of my resume. The average job search takes from 2 to 3 months — and that is in a good economy. However, I did not anticipate that I would not be able to secure temp work. …and, that is not for lack of trying!

Chin up! Focus forward — and keep moving!

    OH MATT! I’m so happy to hear it went well. I’m rooting for you. I’d say I’m praying for you…but you know how I feel about that business (your Mom’s financial prayers for you don’t appear to be working, for example).

    Seriously – my fingers are crossed, my thoughts are with you, and my optimism is shining.

    I haven’t commented in a few days, my apologies.

    Reading you quantify the job search like that (280+ applications, 17 agencies, etc.), it floors me to think….

    There seems to be a great disparity between having a job and competence in the world. There are these wonderful, qualified, focused people like you who have to put out so much effort to find stable employment. And then there are ignorant, ridiculous fools who have jobs when they are not even qualified to operate a stapler.

    I seem to be encountering a lot of incompetence in the world, so forgive me for using your job search as a soapbox, but it is troubling.

    Regardless, I am glad you opted out of the porn store path and also that you have such a wonderfully calm perspective on your job hunt.

    As always, my best wishes continue for you…

    Good Luck Mate!
    That surely is alot of pounded pavement.
    It really blows my mind someone would seriously consider you to model anything porn related.
    I mean, bloody hell, are they daft?
    Awesome Aussie

    As interesting as it might have been to hear of your escapades in the porn industry, I’m crossing my fingers for your interview.
