Three days ago I had my first job interview in the land of milk and honey and I believe it went pretty well. The interview took place in Washington, DC — the city we plan to settle down in eventually. In order to get there on time we woke up early to give me some extra time to explore the city and see some of DC’s famous monuments before my interview.
Right before leaving the homestead, I got a chance to watch the NBC Today show, where Queen Rania was being interviewed that day by Katie Couric. The queen looked extremely beautiful, as usual, and spoke very eloquently about Jordan’s efforts to empower women in the country. I saw it as a good omen for the beginning of my day.
Regarding DC, the city itself: I loved it, especially Georgetown. It just looks very European and extremely trendy. I think I will like it even more once we finally settle down there.
Back to the issue of landing a job, I have been unemployed for over a month now and I think it started getting to me. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed every month of our last four weeks of constant travel. But the workaholic inside me is itching to get out. Looking for jobs is the part that I hate the most. It is a tedious process of distributing as many CVs as you can and then waiting for your fate to unfold.
I have done this so many times in my lifetime that the idea of doing it yet again gives me a headache. Ah, if only job opportunities would come knocking at your door. I’m very open to suggestions and recommendations from anyone who has contacts in DC/Metro area in the media field. Any job-related tips would be highly appreciated.
