SG Sitrep 03.

The job opportunity I was hoping would pan out (mentioned in SG Sitrep 01) just fizzed out, crumbled into dust and blew away. Did not even make the interview shortlist as they found couple of other candidates with a much closer skills match.

Am demoralised. To say the least. Back to square one and cold lead generation.

But I'll live.

To quote my own email tagline years from years ago:
Nothing that a big hug, a pint of Haagen Dazs and a bottle of vodka cannot fix.

Whenever I didn't get a job, I'd tell myself that it happened for a reason - maybe it wasn't a good job fit or I might not be able to get along with the people there. Sometimes, just halfway through and interview and I know I won't fit into the company culture.

Perhaps it is a good sign, that you don't fit the job or the job doesn't fit you and that there's a better fit out there.

I agree. Sometimes things happen for a reason. The silver lining just takes a while to show itself. You'll find something soon I'm sure.

Hope you'll get something you like soon. How's the 1000 resume mission going?

Perhaps now you'll think about being on this island when you are 40 with no job in a different light.

Life has a way of giving u the things u deserve. Unfortunately (or not, depending on how u look at it), it may take some time between "deserve," and "get." But just keep believing, ok? In between, that's what u need to do, in order to hang on to that eventual reward at the end.

Maybe God's way of telling you to move on ! ie move to Oz. Was apprehensive b4 i came to NZ in end 2002, leaving a high pay (n high stress) job n good schools for my kids. But I got a job here in NZ quite quickly in a totally new field (from IT consultancy to part time pre-school teacher). My brother , in his 50s did a 1 yr post grad teaching diploma here and got a job after his course n b4 official graduation. Doubt very much if he could get a teaching job in SG. Not to pan SG, I miss all the folks n food n convenience. But there is something great abt being able to slow down and smell the roses and get a life ! You don't get much $ but you don't need much to have a good quality life here! And the kids love it here !
