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...
