On the Job Hunt

I’ve been looking for part time writing/blogging jobs that will help pay the bills and keep a sense of sanity here where I’m sharing living arrangements with my mother in-law, Tom and my wife. I found a couple sites that I’ve been using that hold promise, though I’m sure I will soon discover how good they actually are.

Pro Bloggers is as the site implies about finding jobs where blogging is the main curriculum. I applied through them for a couple of potential jobs but hadn’t received a reply yet.

The other is Flex Jobs which is more in line of a job search engine such as Indeed or Monster. These guys promise a lot and they seemed honest and forthcoming with their promises. This group focuses exclusively with employers hiring for remote or work from home jobs, which is what I prefer at this time.

One thing that I did discover through this site is that they offer exams that tests one’s abilities and talents in a given field or career, plus certain classes and professional mentoring with a job coach that I’ve taken advantage of. They had me fill out a resume profile too which they claim is the fastest way to land a job.

Then, I guess when I put in for a job through Monster I got an interview, via Zoom that I attended yesterday. It was through a company calling itself AO. I found out during the course of the presentation it was an insurance company selling different types of policies to “working families.” I sent them my resume though I am certain nothing will come of it.

I was hoping for a sense of retirement but have since realized we still need money to live on and provide some sense of normalcy. Not working gets very old very fast.

My other writing projects are still progressing nicely. I’ve started a new book on a new series, finished editing another book I finished writing another book from the last series. I Albert Peabody is still being proofed by the publisher and I sent more marketing ideas on A Man’s Passion to the marketing team at Austin Macauley.
