The hunt is on

For a job that is!  I know that this city is a difficult place to find a job in right now, but I didn’t realize it that it would be THAT difficult.  Most of the jobs that I would more than likely get are in Toronto and area,  but that would mean I would have to move to Toronto and well, I don’t have a desire to do that.  I want to stay here because my family is here and that was also one of the reasons why I moved back to Canada.  I wanted Isabella to be close to her grandparents and other family members. 

The frustrating part I think for myself anyways is when they show experience wanted,  ready for this?   More than 2 years but less than 3 years.  SO you are telling me you want 2 1/2 years of experience???  Seriously??  I have yet to find a job that wants more the 5 years experience.   Frustrating?  Yes.    I get they don’t want to pay top salary to someone with more than 5 years experience but if your job has been posted for 4 weeks and you haven’t found someone who can do the job with only 5 years experience then maybe just MAYBE you should look for someone with a little MORE experience… just sayin’.

So right now I’m searching every website I can think of from monster.ca to the jobbank to workopolis.ca and I find the same thing on all sites.  I never thought I would be classified as “over qualified”  but I guess there’s a first for everything.

Come May I would like to finish off my schooling through George Brown for Medical Transcriptions and then hopefully I can find something in that department.  I found a few sites that allow you to do this from home which would be perfect for me.   To be honest, I love spending this much time with Isabella.  I thought I would start twitching to get out of the house and get away from her, but in reality I hate leaving her behind anywhere and would rather she be with me.  Even on her cranky ass days when I want to hide in a closet and just let her scream.   So for me to be able to stay home with her as much as possible until she goes to school would be a dream for me. 

So on that note, it’s time for my bug to hit the hay.  This should be fun since she’s currently wired on I don’t know what and running around playing in her ball pit.   I foresee a few minutes of screaming in protest as I try to put her down for the night.   Wish me luck!

About Melissa

This is my "start over" blog. I had moved to the Netherlands for 2.5 years and found that it wasn't for me. I guess I'm too much of a Canadian at heart. So now I'm here in Canada with my toddler daughter who was actually born in NL. My dog is with my dad enjoying the good life and I am here trying to start over and get my life back.

    I really like the new name, welcome in your new incarnation. Good luck on the job hunt, I don’t envy you having to do that. I’ll be in your boat in a couple of years and I dread it already.
