Just did a scary thing   20 comments

I just hit send on a job application.

I haven’t applied for a job in almost 18 years.

What if I don’t get aninterview?

What if I bomb it?

What if they don’t want to hire me?

What if they do?

  6. I wish you much success. 🙂

  7. Oh good luck. I have to do that within 9 months as my boss is retiring and I’ve been here 14 years. It will be fine. And if you get an interview and don’t get the job you can consider it practice for the next one.

    • In my head I know that.. in my stomach, it is a different story. 🙂

      Kind of scary to be looking out at 9 months to no job – but I am sure you will find a great one to replace it with. I hope it involves some train travel so you can work on your knitting and crocheting!
