Job "Frenzy"

I am going to be honest, I don't know what job "frenzy" means.  I just feel like I have heard it in passing recently and I nod my head like I know what we are referring to.  I even goggled "Job Frenzy" and found no clear definition but a website.  Maybe it will help a few of us out.  It is a job search engine.  {Click here to check it out}

But the really reason I am blogging about this on a Friday is because I am having a fantastic week in the job search. Now, before you get all congratulations on me beware I said "job search". I have found splendid jobs to apply for this week.  Jobs I know I can do, do well and want to do.  Not to mention the locations are ideal (Greensboro, NC, Cincinnati, New York, Northern Ohio, Washington D.C.).  If I could land an interview with any of them, I would be happier then a bride on her wedding day. Anyways, I am having the greatest end of the week. I really feel joyful and optimistic about what might come.  But I have to say a lot of it comes from my wonderful friends/readers.  I got a few emails this week really inspiring me to keep going.  Then there was the change of heart on {September 1st} and the inspiring article you should read.  

I do have to congratulate two of my friends who earlier this year both experienced the job lay off thing and months of unemployment.  Both received word on Friday, August 21st about offers for jobs.  Both started training this week. I am convinced that both will kick butt and be stellar. Congrats to Courtney J and Steffanie. 

On to my weekend.  This weekend has always marked the final weekend of summer for me.  So as I embark on this holiday weekend with plans so fall, I wonder where summer went? The sister is coming home from a month away at college and Saturday, we are all headed down to the river to watch "Rumble on the River", a college football match between Miami University and University of Kentucky.  C-A-T-S! Cats! Cats! (No, I did not make that up.) 

May your holiday weekend be full of whatever season you hope it to be!

{Stay Tuned}

Laura! Good luck with those job postings you found! It can be hard, but I agree that it's so nice and refreshing to find jobs that you know you would actually want (and love) to do. All you can do is have confidence in yourself and the fact that the RIGHT job will come along. I'm right there with you on this 'applying for jobs' thing so you're definitely not alone! Miss youuu!
