Gettin' in the Way

I'm behind schedule. I don't have another job yet, and I'm getting closer to my deadline of October. This gives me two options. I can either find work in NJ and move up there earlier, or I can stick it out down here a little longer. Seriously, I'm at the end of my rope, and I don't know how much longer without a job. This is really getting in the way of my plan. Even if I do find a job soon, I'll have to wait before moving back in order to get adequate experience. However, if I can find a job in NJ with the experience I DO have, then I can go back no problem. I guess I should start considering that as a possibility in my job search.

I should use LinkedIn more to what it's good for, which is networking. I shouldn't view that as a job site. It's a site where I can build relationships with professionals and learn from theirs experiences. If I do get a job out of it, that's great. However, that shouldn't be my primary objective when I log on. I need to expand my network; I think I only have 7 connections. That's pathetic. I need to stop being so shy that it gets in the way of me building relationships with others outside of my circle, especially when it can help me in the long run.

And the beat goes on...

Well, This Is Cool...

So if this post gets through, then that means I can blog on the go, and I don't need to be at my computer to do it! I might be incited to update more often, then.

I got a job interview next week! It's a PC technician position at Santee Cooper. I'll be driving, so I need to get on the ball about getting my driver's license. This is embarrassing. I'm 20 years old, and I don't have a driver's license yet. I'm supposed to be starting my own life soon, and I can't even go out to look for apartments or even look at cars. I can't even drive myself to freakin' work! I need to get this license, but if my not having a license turns out to be the dealbreaker at this interview, I'm gonna flip!

And the beat goes on...the go! (Tee-hee)
