I watched the Day 1 video and in it she suggests job seekers make a list of their fears. Well since authenticity and vulnerability are the new buzzwords, I will reveal my top 2 fears:
Not being a perfect match for a company.
That all I’ve learned about grief, job searching and social media will have been in vain.
All my life, I have been the oddball, the odd man out or just plain odd. It was always obvious that I never fit in whether it was with a group of friends in school or in the different companies I’ve worked for during my career.
Even at the bank, I knew I was not a perfect fit for that organization. But by the grace of God, I managed to survive a couple reorganizations and collect enough money to keep management happy for 13 years.
“The Age Of Aquarius”
I attribute the feeling of not fitting in with being an Aquarian as Joe felt the same way. He only fit in well enough but was not a perfect fit.
Guess that is why it hurt so much when he moved to heaven. The one person who related to how I felt was gone.
“You’re So Vain”
There is so much knowledge floating around in my head about grief, job searching, blogging and other forms of social media. I pray I can find a job where this knowledge is put to good use and not go to waste. It would be a shame if all I’ve learned is in vain.
But Wait!…There’s More
There is more to Day 1 of the JSAP course but I will not reveal it. You will just have to click here and sign up to receive the information.
Now if you will excuse me, I am off to “Storm The Bastille!!” (this is my mantra for 2012 – I told you I am odd.)
