Job Search Update

Tomorrow I close and lock up my residence hall for the third and final year here at Truman. This is the date that I had unconsciously set as the deadline for finding a new job.

But unless a miracle happens, the university I visited a few weeks ago doesn’t seem likely to be offering me a job. Another school I conducted a phone interview with a week ago declined to invite me to campus. And many of the other schools I applied to haven’t ever replied to my emails asking about the status of their searches.

But I’m soldiering on. I sent out 4 new cover letter and resumes yesterday. But the problem is that even after widening my search beyond the East Coast, there aren’t a ton of positions still open nationwide. And finding a Hall Director job in a hip area at an academically superior university is becoming more and more difficult.

My new job search deadline is June 30 — my last day on contract and the day I officially become homeless.

just remember that everything happens for a reason, and although that reason may allude you now, at some point you will realize and embrace!
