In February of this year I was laid off from my job at a call center. I figured okay, fine, it’ll be okay, I can just focus on school. That was an awesome idea, honestly, because I got a break and my grades were awesome. So good decision there. Yay, me.
Now, with school being out of the summer I have attempted to find a job, again. However, I will be attending school full time in the fall, so I have something like two and a half months before I either have to go down to part time or quit altogether. It is frustrating because no professional position wants a worker for that short a time frame! Even a lot of the temp positions I’ve looked at all want a six month commitment which I cannot give. So, for now I am jobless and… not quite regretting my decision. I am regretting that I didn’t start looking for another job until after finals, though. I don’t know how I would have done that, but I wish I had figured it out.
Also, all the jobs that would be temporary like diners or grocery stores have been taken because the high schoolers are out for the summer, too. Dammit!
