I've mentioned before that I'm a contractor in my current job. I was originally there for six months, then two, then two, then two again.
I've been watching the Ottawa job postings - not terribly regularly, but I have been keeping my eyes open.
More accurately, I let Peter's New Jobs e-mails pile up in my inbox for a couple of weeks, then read them all at once and open tabs for the relevant jobs.
That's where the system falls apart. After about a week, I give up and close the browser, usually without actually applying for the jobs.
It's so hard to look for a job when you have a job.
Anyway, last month my contract was extended until September. I immediately made a resolution - not to even think about applying for a job unless it looked like a perfect fit.
I then proceeded to ignore the e-mails for 2.5 weeks. (Some things never change.)
Tonight I went through them and found one job that looks worth applying for. It's open in my browser as we speak.
No, I haven't applied for it. Some things never change.
What’s in your mail?
