Hello. Sorry I haven't been around for so long. I've been busy looking
for jobs and its quite depressing. Even worse my phone was disconnected! BT don't appreciate
people not paying their bills it seems. I sorted it out though and they reconnected me
very quickly once I paid up.
Good news! I have a job interview! It's booked for next Monday.
It's not the kind of job I was expecting to take. It's a position as a techical writer for a
small magazine in London. I don't think it's going to be particularly well paid (I will find out on
Monday) but sounds like a lot of fun.
Having done an Electrical Engineering
degree I assumed I would move into something quite technical. However, the harsh realities
of the dole queue have changed my perspective and I've been tempted by (and taken) jobs I would previously
have rejected out of hand. While at University I kind of assumed that
things would pan out. I'd never contemplated being an unemployed graduate. I guess I'm not alone
but it's nevertheless a pretty depressing prospect.
During school and college and even university, my life was both safe and planned. There was an order to my days and a schedule to my weeks.
Now though I face uncertainty and daytime TV.
