Just wanted to say I have been encouraged by so many of your stories during my job search. I will finally be starting a new role in a week, my first FTE gig since college (25 years as a contractor)! Even though the manager for this role liked and wanted me for it and discussed it in depth on my last day of my last contract, it has taken 3 months for this to come together, then a few weeks for onboarding. In the end I will have been out of work for 4 months and without a paycheck for 5. But the point of this story is that patience, perseverance, and persistence have paid off. I had a number of very nice jobs slip through my fingers during this period, at times I felt carefree and at others I felt desperate, but I kept at it all along. The point is don't lose face and keep planting good seeds, turned out one of mine sprouted, but it took some watering for sure. My next steps were going to be to create a personal bio website, basically a highly customized online resume and print up some calling cards. I didn't need to take those steps, but not a bad idea if you are wondering what to try next. Also, don't forget, network, network, network! Anyway, thanks for the great stories, congratulations to those that are finding happiness and best of luck to those still seeking!!
