Job Searching Again

The past couple of weeks have kept me busy. I’ve been driving all over the county putting in applications and resumes at all sorts of tech companies. I feel a sense of urgency to get settled in someplace new since I don’t have much cash saved up. My loot is running out fast. I’ve been making lots of phone calls every day to electronics and manufacturing companies to find out as much as I can in the shortest possible time about what they do and if they’re looking for people. A few places have already called me in for interviews, which is good. Things are starting to gain momentum. Each place I’ve interviewed at so far has been interesting because I seem to know in the first five minutes whether or not they’re serious about me. I don’t know what it is that gives things away between interviewer and peasant but when I feel like they don’t really give a shit that I’m there I can tell. Then I don’t put much effort into the rest of the conversation. The reverse is true too. Sometimes after I find out what they work on I’m not interested in them at all even if they want to give me a job. Job is a job though and I might end up making a comprimise again just so I can pay my bills and eat. Besides, even the worst tech company would more than likely be better than flipping burgers in some fast food joint or being in the Army hunting for land mines. Gotta keep it all in perspective.

One of the places that has called me back for an interview has spiked my curiocity. They mostly do micro electronics work but they’ve been delibrately vague about specifics on their products or who their customers are. It’s all a big mystery. They said they would tell me some more once I come in for the interview. From the phone conversations with their Human Resources department it seems they are in a bind for people with experience. That’s exactly what I wanted to hear. So I’ll be heading over to check this company out in a couple of days and hopefully be able to worm my way into a job.
