I’ve been applying for jobs again. This time, I’ve widened my search to include places that *aren’t* Melbourne.
In my time in Melbourne I’ve probably sent out about 400 job applications. I’ve gotten three responses.
In sending job applications outside of Melbourne, I got two responses from my original ten queries. I like those odds a lot better.
It’s a really nice break, as well. When every day is sending out application after application and getting nowhere, it eventually starts to feel like the only common denominator must be that I am un-hire-able.
It’s so incredibly amazing to be getting positive responses after weeks of silence.
Though that does leave me in the bittersweet position of having only a fortnight left in Melbourne.
Ah well. Sounds like a fantastic excuse to live it up with the amazing people I’ve met here.
