The joys of beginning to look for a new job.

Well, my losing weight and getting fit timetable seems to be slipping (yeah, yeah, yawn) but my search for a new job now begins. My one year contract ends in April (maternity cover) and I believe university policy is that if someone wishes to return to work from their baby having downtime they need only give one months notice.

So, where to begin? Deciding what to do would be a start! Having gone from an IT career to part-time admin so that I can have a life outside of work I certainly like working part-time. I suppose if the right job came up full-time would be OK.

I have enjoyed the lack of responsibility – no staff and no real pressures are good but then the lack of involvement and influence over things is frustrating at times. I miss being more involved but I guess I'm getting that with the volunteering at the moment.

I've come to the conclusion that education is not my industry and would like to do charity work or perhaps SME - somewhere you can become more involved.

Admin is OK, Finance is OK. I also miss any real customer contact and involvement here – I'm used to working in a strong customer-care environment.

Emailed one application out yesterday and posted one just before Xmas but nothing else in the pipeline at the moment. Can I take all the rejection out there?

In reality you don't get too much rejection just a lot of silence….. In todays world of email, it's disgraceful that you don't here from companies you've applied to. Application forms can take ages to complete and a lot of companies don't reply – maybe it's an indication of what sort of employer they might have been.
