Endlessly Searching Endlessly

I have spoken previously on why job searching is the devil. Yet once again this is the position I find myself in. It’s a familiar routine, really. Update your résumé, gather a list of contacts, contact said contacts and hope someone has something vaguely resembling good news.

There’s a sort of desperation. Every time you meet someone who might even possibly have passed by someone who might have once known someone who works in your industry there’s an awkward “As it happens I’m currently looking…” But as awkward as it gets sometimes, there’s also a quick learning curve to realize that it doesn’t matter. You never know who knows who.

I was once attending the birthday celebration of a good friend. The party was catered by a well known restaurant. I found myself talking to the owner of the restaurant who, as it turns out knows someone fairly high up at NASA. Might be time for a fancy date night. After all, a nice restaurant is probably an infinitely better place for an interview than an actual interview room.

I’ve done quite a bit of job searching over the years and probably the one lesson I’ve learned is to never leave a stone unturned. Every meeting, every phone call, every meeting, every blog post…

As it happens…

I've traveled the world, but the exploration never ends. I've run marathons, but the race is far from over. I've completed life goals, but strive for more. I have questions with no answers, and answers to questions I've yet to ask.

Where are you going? Where have you been?
