When it rains it pours...

I have been job searching for a year and a half.

Let me tell you, its been a learning experience. Job hunting overseas isn't easy- no matter what ANYONE tells you. I swear I have never been more frustrated and disappointed so many times in all of my life.

Ive gone months without interviews now. Sending in application after application with no response or email inbox full of rejections.

Until this past week.

So far I have had three interviews. In a week. For really really great jobs.

I just got home from two excellent interviews. One lasted an hour and a half. One went so well I left feeling like I was on cloud 9. (and I would LOVE to work at the company!)

I got home and started some laundry preparing to go to my current job. I glance at my phone and see that I missed a call.

Another call from another job I applied for. I have yet ANOTHER interview for tomorrow morning.

Wow. Just wow. I am so thankful for these interviews. I know they aren't job offers but they are something. A move in the right direction. A sliver of hope that my life might improve for James and me.

I really hope that someone sees something in me that they want at their company. I would so love to get my foot in this employment door here in Ireland. I just feel like I would be so much happier here when I have a job that not only sufficiently provides for my family,but that gives me the job satisfaction I left behind in the states.

Heres to hope! Keep you fingers crossed for me people!

  2. I'm definitely keeping my finger crossed for you hon!
