Well, another week gone and still no job for me.
Last night, I learned that a freind of mine who is in the same profession as I am and who lost her job 6 weeks ago was hired at a urology office in the Fort Myers area. I am so happy for her, believe me, but it just compounded my frustration even more.
I have many years experience in many disciplines in the medical field and I am wondering what is different about me? Am I falling into "file 13," because of so many job applicants or am I missing something? I wish I knew.
My brother suggested that I e-mail some of the potential employers and find out what was making me different from the rest. I will see if the employers respond. I hope so. It will give me guidance to do a better job search for sure.
As for me, my frustration and worry has gotten worse and I am trying to keep my head up, but it is hard when you have to tell your children you can't buy that toy or book they desperately want to have, because of lack of funds to do so. Wow, how this hurts.
