noooooooo - i mean, it would be hella more validating to get paid for doing this much legwork, but seriously, I hate my life.
Haha. I suppose it does have to do with the idea of getting paid to do this. I’ve learned a lot in reading job descriptions and looking through each company’s website, and have had a lot of recent candid conversations about hiring with two ex-bosses as well as with friends who are or have been in recruitment or HR roles (and I’ve also bugged you with a few questions!).
The whole process is obsession-grade interesting to me, and I’ve got the hunt down to a good rhythm:
- Search, scan, “yep, I can do this…” save.
- Revisit, peruse, “yep, I’d like this…” apply.
- Lather, rinse, repeat.
I’ve also had a few instances where I see a company’s “about” page or mission statement and think:
- What does that even mean; has anyone in-house ever read that aloud?!
- Welp. That’s probably why you’re hiring a writer.
Anyway. It’s all fun and games until my final paycheck arrives. Then I will join you on the life-hating section of the job-seeking boat.
