I managed to finish my brother’s cover letter and resume for the last job listing that he sent me last week. I had told him that I could help and send it to him in a couple of days but with the distraction with my house guests, I just couldn’t get to it. I finally stayed up late last night and worked on it until I was finished.
The last time I helped my brother, he got a job interview from his application. He didn’t mention how the interview went but then he never mentioned a second nor a job offer. I hope that he gets some response from this one.
Job Reference Successful
I wrote a job reference for a friend a while ago. I hadn’t heard back from either the company I sent it to or my friend (whom I had bcc’d a copy) and had almost forgotten about it. It had taken me a while to write it so I had hoped that it would help her with her job application.
She emailed me today and was so excited! She got offered the job she had applied for! She had been busy with subsequent job interviews and meetings so that this was the first chance she had to let me know. She was now going to start three weeks of intensive training before starting her new job.
I was so happy for her. She thanked me again for the job reference I had provided. She said that she was told that they were impressed with what had been written. I couldn’t help but feel proud that my job reference had helped her.
It’s a little ironic that I seem to do a better job doing job hunt related activities for my brother and my friends rather than for myself. I wonder what the difference is? Am I too close to my own job application? Maybe I need to relax more.
House Guests Leave
After seven days, my house guests finally left. Although they were okay guests, as the days went by, it became more of an imposition for me to have them. I’m not used to having anybody here. I didn’t feel comfortable in my own home.
I didn’t feel like I could do everything that I needed to do. I bent over backwards to try to make their visit as enjoyable as possible but I don’t think that they were appreciative. When they left, I was relieved.
Help Friend with Computer
After I dropped off the house guests, I went to my friend’s to help her with her computer again. I had helped her last week but she needed more help. Actually, I was happy to help her. I stayed for only an hour or so and then went home. It was so nice to unlock my door to complete silence.
