I have applied for dozens of jobs in the last couple of weeks (more than dozens I am sure) and many, many more since I started looking for a new job. There have been a lot more postings (that is an understatement) since I opened up the areas that I am now looking in. Essentially, I am looking anywhere in Canada except for Quebec – my lack of French language skills wouldn’t do me well there.
Anyway, I have had a lot of positive responses, prospective employers or recruitment agencies wanting more information on my background.
I am hopeful that this will lead to a new position in the very near future. If I don’t have a new job by the end of March (only two weeks now), I will have to give notice to vacate my rented house. That will mean I can stay here and continue paying bills until the end of May. Not too long really…
Not sure what I will do if I don’t find an IT job before then – I guess I will get something, likely similar to the job that I was offered a few weeks back and turned down. I don’t regret turning that one down, I think it was the correct decision.
Guess time will tell.
