Online Job Sites – ARGH!

Filed under: Random — Little Miss @ 9:55 am

<RANT AHEAD> Talk about frustrating. Find a job online and you’re directed to register on a job site, enter all your information – which, by the way, is already in your resume – and then when you’re all done with that, you get this message:

[company name] has opted to have you complete the application for Technical Writer – (Project) on a site they specified.
If another browser window has not automatically opened for you,
Click here to complete the employer’s application.

So you click, and it says the job is no longer available. How frustrating! <END RANT>

So, if I’m starting my business as a freelance writer and editor, why am I applying for jobs? Because until money comes in from my self-employment, I need something to keep me afloat. The last thing I want is to be tethered to a corporation again, but it it means the difference between keeping my mortgage and bills paid or not, then I’ll take the corporate job.

Meanwhile, I am plodding along doing everything I can to get the freelance business going and building income — with the exception of the last couple days where I goofed off and spent time with my daughter.
