5 Months of Unemployment

Kicking off 5 months of unemployment. What a joy.

I have submitted over 500 resumes’ so far and had dozens of interviews via telephone and even a few live interviews. I have been on the shortlist for a job at least 5 times. Most of the shortlist jobs were put on hold. It has been a difficult start to 2017 to say the least. I have a had a chance to do a few things like spend time with my kids, take care of my Mom who has had several ailments over the last year or so. It has given me the chance to get more grey hair, work on my marketing skills and deal with various stages of depression, with depths that I didn’t know I could reach.
