I am pretty much sick of searching for a job at this time. But, I must continue. Finding a job is now my job.
I have received one rejection already. But considering the number of applications I have made, it is not surprising. Better to have bad news rather than no news. That is what I like about the RayJobs site. They let you know what your application status is. It sucks to see "No Interest", but that is better than not having any feedback.
My day is typically spent doing the job search in the morning and then learning C++ in the afternoon. I need to add VHDL to my afternoon studies. I am finding that hardware design techniques have advanced greatly since my time at Dell. I need to learn new skills to remain relevant to my chose trade.
I can't go back to school right now since I have no income. Also, I don't know where I might be living in a few months. That is a scary concept. So, my studies must be on my own.
