January has been rather eventful on the Five Sixteenths front but not so eventful on the job front. I'm not quite sure what I'm doing wrong, getting interviews & being rejected hasn't ever happened to me...especially two in a row. This week I was rejected from a small data entry gig I found off craigslist, the second interview & rejection in a row. I'm really at my wits end here! Seriously, I don't know what's going on & I don't know what to do. I tailor my resume & cover letter, send them out with an application or nice, professional email overviewing my qualifications........then either don't hear back or get passed over. Am I the only one who thinks I've got something to offer? I know I'm competing with other candidates both equally & more qualified than myself but I don't know how to make myself a better candidate. I don't know what more I can do, say, or be to make an impact.
I'm sorry to make this Fan Friday a little downer, but I want to keep 516 an accurate representation of my life & right now a big part of my life is struggling with finding a job.....any job. But below are some things that I have found or made that cheered me up this week:
This awesome chevron, black & white Vintage Crochet Blanket pattern from Churchmouse Yarns & Teas on Ravelry. I've been looking for a great bold patterned crochet blanket to make for a long time! I've wanted to make a super awesome black & white blanket since August!
Not to toot my own horn here, but I love the new prints added to my Society6 shop. I am in love with my color palette.
Valentine's Day is around the corner & these fonts are perfect!
Trying to keep this in mind.
++ Dana of Wonder Forest added some lovely handmade fonts to her design shop. I'm in love with them!++
++If you've ever wanted to cut acrylic felt perfectly, check out this awesome tutorial over on Dream a Little Bigger. I wish I'd known this ages ago!++
++I just discovered a site called Wanelo (short for Want Need Love) & would love for you to follow me! I've been using it for a bit & am going to do a little review of it here soon! ++
I hope you have a great weekend, Zach & I are going to paint I believe. I'm also going to apply to more & more jobs. It's really a downer to get rejected & to apply to a million jobs then never hear back.
