Happy 2015

Happy new year, everyone. The last post was quite a while ago. Therefore, my new year's resolution is to add posts on a regular basis. Just in case someone is reading all this1. Good luck to everybody. More interesting things and an update about my job search coming soon.

Update (2015/01/05):

I already submitted three applications (For privacy reasons I won't tell to whom the applications went). I'm still struggling for the right search terms when looking up the job search websites like stepstone, greenjobs, etc. I think it has to do with myself struggling to nail down my skills and to focus on what is important to me, at least for a new engagement. However, instead of me giving a detailed description of what I would like to do next, I broaden search patterns, instead and seek through the much more general results.

Not counting the days between Christmas and New Year's Eve, about 20-30 new job offers hit my mailbox. If one or 2 of these hits match my idea for a new job or even better show me a new idea, my goals is fulfilled. Next:

  • Prepare a motivation letter!
  • Apply!
  • Wait for response!

The latter being the worst part, though I really like the first two steps!
