Looking …

Wednesday, March 7 2007

I am back to looking for jobs and … nothing yet. Mainly registering on websites directly at major corporations but the main effective part is get talking to people. Agencies are not really option cos of the time lag between the application and starting the job … and they get paid. The visa deadline is fast approaching and I am being realistic (=not optimistic).

After reading up on things, I found out one good fact which will be a good back-up when needed. No thanks to our lawyer but he confirmed that I was right.

Another good thing is that going to the gym is less boring the job hunting so I am doing that 🙂

I am still loving all the sunshine here – that is all goooood.

The other day I saw something that impressed me and made me pleased to see. We were at the grocery store Trader’s Joe, a member of staff walked around with a blind man and helped him with is shopping. I have never seen that anywhere.

    C’mon Lizzie, you’ll look good applying for jobs being fit and toned in the gymnasium.
    So get out there, press the flesh, and aim high.

    Better yet, you could build up the muscles and do a facelock on the the interviewer into giving you the job! 🙂

    Come on, don’t be pesimistic, just be patient. Things always get fixed up when you think it’s all over.

    I don’t think I am pessimistic, just realistic. When I find someone that wants to employ me, then they have to wait 6 months before I can start work and that is if my visa comes through. The employer has to invest in time and legal costs for something that is not a 100% guaranteed.

    wow. I had no idea you had to wait so long before you could even start the job. that really sucks. However, there has to be an opportunity for you … I know there is 🙂

    Post something. I’m bored. I need something to keep me occupied. I need some “thrift store” linkage. Come on. Seriously!
