job searching, uni, etc etc

June 21st, 2011 at 09:17 pm

I am not dead, I have just not had the time or energy (or motivation) to blog, or think about money.

Things seem to be going well and our bank account is looking healthier than it has in about six months. Which is nice.

I finished my Law subject last week and had the final exam. I think I actually did well. I hope I am not being overconfident with this one, as last time I thought I did terribly and recieved a Credit for one, and a Distinction for another. Still am not sure how I managed that.

I enrolled in my next two subjects, starting 20th July. They are: Data Analysis & Business Information Concepts. Data Anaylis, ick. But, I am kind of looking forward to the BIC subject. I think it may help me get a job, more so than now anyway. I have to shell out around $350 for textbooks and supplies in the next few weeks. Better start looking for things to sell on Ebay!!! Unfortunately I have already looked, and there is no way I can buy these used or second hand, as they come with computer programs I need. To buy the programs separately, it is nearly the same price! Pfft. What a rip.

I heard back from three out of the four jobs I applied for a month or two ago. Didn't even get an interview for any of them. The one I haven't heard from, well, I'm assuming they just aren't letting people know they were unsuccesful.

I applied for two more the other day. Already heard back about one (no interview) and still waiting on another. *Sigh*. There are SO many people looking for jobs. Oh well. Atleast I am in the position of actually HAVING a job as I am looking for one. That is a luxury I am sure not many job-seekers out there have at the moment.

I heard that a woman who advertised for a receptionist, recieved 410 applications. Just for a little office in town. So, that gives me some idea of what I'm competing against!

    I have started putting many of my textbooks on a Kindle... it's a little cheaper (not LOADS cheaper, but it does lead to some savings) and I have the insurance of being able to carry most of my books in one little machine. So far it is working out well, but I think the entire textbook industry is an absolute racket. Good luck with the job search! I have friends looking here, as well, and it's a tough market at the moment.
