How satisfied are you with your job?

Some people wake up and dread their way to work..thinking about how much they are unsatisfied with their job and all the reasons why they do what they do.

I got the call!

I got the call that I was offered a job! It doesn't pay as much as I would like, but I'm also working toward getting on with VIPkid. They mentioned several time that there is room for growth and I think that even if this isn't a forever career, the experience will definitely help my resume.
Keep applying! You can do it!

Good job. Make the most of your time their.

I've worked with technology and computers for over 30 years and don't deny that computers have made our world a better place, mostly. However, computers are not necessarily the answer to everything. Hiring is a perfect example as to how employers depend on technology to do something that only a person can do.

2nd interview. Update, I got another job.

I had my first interview last week, exactly, seven days. I was told I'd be contacted this week in regards to coming in for a second interview. Do I give them more time to contact me? It took them a month to call me after I sent them my resume.
