Yesterday, I decided to apply for a job at a local CC that I know all too well. It's another administrative position similar to the one I had at Tech College.
I know, I know...didn't that same job cause you significant stress, so much so that you had to quit?
So why in the hell would you go back into the fire?
In my defense, and I need one, I thought long and hard about doing this.
This particular position is a much shorter commute, like 10-15 minutes. So, that is way better than the 45-60 minutes with the last job. This would be way more do-able. I know how to do the job and do it well. It complements my work in PhD program. I really could make a difference there. It's not like anyone has been banging on my door for faculty positions, although HBCU did confirm that I will be teaching on camps for the fall. But that's one class. And, who knows what will happen with my admission situation at PhD U. I just wanted to see what will happen. The worst thing is that I get no response or the classic FU letter. If I did get an interview, I could decide for myself if this is where I want to go. I am in a better place physically, emotionally and mentally. I have the coping mechanisms to deal with this or any stressful situation.
Rejected due to lack of education and/or experience.
