Day 83 - A New Lead
Today was a quieter day. I didn’t have anything on the calendar except one networking meeting. I was able to do some chores, cook a nice souffle for dinner, and generally take it easy.
Then I got an email from an HR friend (also looking for work) about a training position that was posted by a recruiter. I sent the recruiter a message via LinkedIn right away. Then I saw his posting via an HR Network email list I subscribe to, so I sent him an email with my resume attached.
I fight my doubts about my chances. I try not to allow myself to think about all the other training professionals in the area with more impressive resumes. I just sent it off as quickly as I could with a cover letter that explained how well qualified I am. (I’m going to avoid thinking about how I didn’t talk about my passions and what makes me who I am - important information for a cover letter that I totally forgot to discuss.)
At least I have a new lead. Thank goodness they come in from time to time. And thank you, Virginia, for thinking of me.
