So let me make this clear to start I lost my job on January 30th of this year. Why did I lose my job you may ask? Well because I was full time and the company restructured to get rid of us hard working full timers. Which sucks too because I followed policy and rules and was a cheerleader for the company. I was such a cheerleader I cheered myself right out the door. I was Lucky I got a small severance and some unemployment. But here it is July 16th and I still have not found a job. Yes, I am being critical of finding a good job because guess what I worked for a huge corporation before and my soul got sucked from me. No, I am not being funny I am being serious. The company I worked for previously for going on just over eleven years did not believe in a work-life balance. Well, let me rephrase that unless you were someone who kissed the managements booty you were not given or allowed to have a work-life balance. Now I can freelance which I am setting everything up for and other stuff from home but seriously this has become super depressing.
Now have I interviewed for jobs yes of course. Did I ask all the important questions? I sure did! Did I answer all the questions the way I was supposed to? Yup! I actually overheard one of the managers say to another well if she couldn't keep her job with $#@%& then why would we want her here. This is after I explained why I was let go from my previous job due to restructuring and they got rid of a bunch of us full-timers. Another interviewer actually insinuated that I might be a tad too old for the job. Are you serious I am almost 41 years old that is not old, is it?
So I have put in a ton of applications and have scoured the job sites. Then the other day I was playing around on Pinterest and came across a post that said work from home. I read the post and believe me it was a long one, but it gave me hope. I went to the search bar and put in work from home and lo and behold there were over 250 posts with information on companies looking for remote workers for almost any field I could qualify for. In three hours I had submitted fifteen applications and had emails back from three companies. I would love to work from home and save a commute or for me the Uber. I was happy to see that all my options hadn't been gone through and I saved close to 100 articles from Pinterest and have about 75 left to go through but the sites and resources I have gotten have been amazing and I am feeling hope in this job search lets just hope it pans out!
So if you think you can do any of the following type work from home and good luck!
-teaching other languages
and much more!
I will also make it easier for you with a link to my Pinterest Board with the articles I have been applying from! If you are looking for a job happy job hunting I know we will both get one soon!
Blessings and Love,
