And I'm doing the early shift again this coming Friday and morning. We're a bit short-staffed at the moment (the whole reason why I was brought in), so it's a little crazy.
The good news: they trust me enough to put me in charge of the website/Facebook/Twitter/livestreams by myself.
Being back in the newsroom has been really enjoyable overall. I've already worked a variety of shifts so I'm getting to know a lot of people and learn a lot.
Luckily, while there isn't a job for me there, I am working with people very willing to try to connect me with other places that do have openings.
And since I'm really not very good at job hunting, I'll gladly accept.
Because here's what I realized today: I've never really done a full out job search. There was a period in 2008 where I did job hunt, but I found my job through a friend.
Any position I've gotten has been relatively painless. And when I talk to friends going through interview processes and job hunts, I realize how lucky I have been (and feel a little unsure about what to expect).
For now, I'm going to set a few goals in terms of the number of jobs I'm applying for, continue to work on networking, and see what happens. Oh, and keep learning a lot at my current job.
Any tips for this inexperienced job hunter?
