I Hate Job-Hunting

OK, update on the job I am waiting to hear about: yesterday I called to check in with their process around one--I am not trying to be a nagging Ninotchka here, I just happened to recall from the interview that they wanted people to start TODAY, so it seemed prudent to check to see if I was being hired.

The very pleasant, distracted man who is the principal, told me that he was calling references for a number of candidates and I was one of them. He will call me, perhaps today (yesterday), or tomorrow. (Today).


In about fifteen minutes I need to start getting ready for ANOTHER job interview, this one in Berkeley.

I don't know if I've mentioned it, but I hate job hunting. I hate the weird questions. I hate finding new places while wearing pantyhose. I hate the hope, the calls, the sickening disappointment when you don't get a job that sounded nice.

I also hate financial stress.

And I am finding it very hard to focus on wedding details while also job hunting.


In other news, I just got another call from a local Jewish agency, who I called some months ago with a request for help finding a rabbi to officiate at the wedding. They gave me some references, and I went my way. Twice now, they have called back to tell me that they have a NEW message on their machine, from me, giving my number and asking for help finding a rabbi to perform the wedding. I feel vaguely guilty about this, but have no idea what's going on. Is it possible that the original message is somehow resending itself?

Sadly,...the reason that you are having a problem finding a Rabbi to marry you and your intended to be do not belong to any shul...if you did, all the privleges that go along with that would be make it do not pay dues...Good Luck with your search, and many blessings..

Not to worry. I am not, actually, having trouble finding a rabbi to perform the wedding. I have a rabbi. She's lovely, and the wedding is going forward. What I am having trouble with is finding a job. ;)

I have belonged to a shul in the past, and will in the future, however the rabbi from my old shul would not have been able to perform this wedding, since Groomra is not Jewish--so that wouldn't really help much. At any rate, we're good to go...

Good luck with the hunt. I'm about to jump in myself now.
