Day 7, The Lesson of the Day.

Homework first today.

7.1 Are some job markets more secure then others?

First response was sure, but then i started to think about it and think i want to say not really. Everything can change at any time, right?

7.2, What are the best places to look for new opportunities?

According to this chapter, friends and family are the two groups with the highest percentage of landing a job, other then the walk-ins IE fast food and retail shops looking for warm bodies.

7.3, What are the biggest mistakes i have made in looking for a new job?

I feel that my loyalty has held me back, IE not looking or taking advantage of an opportunity when was given to me because i was already happily employed and i think I can be too honest for my own good during the interview process.

7.4, How do i feel about promoting myself?

Like to think i do a fair job of selling myself. But when you are this amazing it is hard not to share, right?

7.5, How do you know when to change careers?

I don’t know. My signs in the past have been when i was told there is no more for you hear other then doing what you are doing. I like to keep moving up both in salary and challenges.

7.6,  How should we apple the principles in Colossians 3:23-24 as workers in this time?

First of all here is Colossians 3:23-24: Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. 

I think this means give it your all everyday. While there are rewards now for doing a good job they are secondary to the rewards for doing a good job in the next life.

I am feeling a little blue today. Think it has to do with the lack of sleep coupled with i have an phone interview with the unemployment people today and that made me “dream” about how things ended at Great Plains and made me wonder if there was something i should have do
