Putting my feelers out

I've been back in the work force for a year now, and its feeling like its time to move towards a more career oriented situation than I am in now.  I have the skills, I have the desire, I have the motivation.  Its time.  


I interviewed for a job with a mortgage company as an assistant processor.  I think I would be nuts to not take the job should it be offered too me.  I want this job.  The job market is tight and there are many other applicants, so not only do I need to figure out how to make myself more memorable (in a good way!) but I also need to have my feelers out for other possible opportunities.

I posted my resume online...I completely forgot that in doing so I would get a barrage of spam and a never ending string of e-mails from people offering me "amazing opportunities."  I wonder, if the opportunity is so amazing, why aren't the positions filled?  Many job that are open right now are getting hundreds if not thousands of applications, and yet these amazing opportunities can't seem to get an applicant.  hmmmm.

Good Luck! I think keeping your feelers out is a good idea considering how badly people need jobs and how many are unfilled.

Best of luck to you!

And I totally agree on the spammers. Obviously, they're not that amazing! Or they're a scam!
