During all this, of course, I'm still searching for a job because getting our house ready to sell just isn't ENOUGH fun by itself. I can't remember where we left off with the charity recruiter saga, but as I have an update, let's recap:
- National charity #1: Kept setting appointments either without confirming times with the other parties, or which the other people completely disregarded anyway
- National charity #2: Assured me in no uncertain terms that the particular position we were discussing required NO fundraising of any kind--which I found out to be untrue in the in-person interview, right after I said I was tired of fundraising
- And last week's cake-taker, national charity #3: Called on Thursday to set an appointment for a phone screen the following day, then completely blew off the interview with no follow-up at all.
I had an in-person interview last week with a company I liked, but for a job that would have probably bored me to tears and been a nightmare for my hip, and while I was a bit shocked when they didn't invite me back for a second interview, I could understand completely and think it's for the best. While part of me is just wanting to find A job, the more intelligent part of me is holding out for a job I really want--or at least could enjoy. And not having to go through an inept recruiter would be a HUGE bonus...........:)
