ok, to start with a bit history on this before I post today’s occurance.
As most of you don’t know, I am currently unemployed. I lost my job towards the first of September. I worked for a retail hardware store since college. I was let go since receiving two bad checks during the summer and couldn’t afford to keep me. Go figure, had a spotless record for a long time and this year, have two to come back. I really felt bad that week, but felt a good deal of peace after. It might of been God’s way of saying move on.
So now I’m searching for something in computer networking or reapir or just anything to get into IT. I made a bad decision of getting comfortable at my old job, so I have an Assoc. of Computer, Electronics and Telecom and being out of college five years. Also have my A+.
So its been tough not having too much written experience, but had some bites so far.
October I had an interview with staffing agency and got an interview out of that. Then called a friend’s previous employers and got two more interviews. The last one was real hopeful, I thought I had landed it, but haven’t heard from them since few days before thanksgiving. So it has been either filled or realized they couldn’t afford to fill another position. Also applied to Best Buy and another place but no word either. Best Buy would of been nice, it will combine both my knowledge of retail and IT and least get some deals during the year on things.
So that brings us to today….
Last night saw a posting on Monster, decided to apply on a whim and today got a call. I have a interview with another staffing company Monday, Great! Its a Help Desk position for a radiology company in Birmingham.
So I’m hoping I have enough experience to do this, so be in prayer for this. I’ve gotten lazy being here at home receiving unemployment (which is another story, I fubar’ed one of my filings and had to straighten it out other day.) But also made some quick cash by selling on ebay, nothing big, but least got little from it.
so wouldn’t mind prayer for monday and job searching all together. That I will take the one God wants. That my hobbies and talens and gifts this year will be more for Him. Haven’t written much music lately either but plan on getting back soon as job searching is done.December 11, 2008 at 11:41 pm #26428

praying bro! this has been a long time coming for ya and im sure God will provide this if its his willDecember 12, 2008 at 10:20 am #26430
Prayin 4 ya now!March 30, 2009 at 4:29 am #26431
So tomorrow, monday, at 3pm CST, I have another job interview, thank God. This time its for a part time board operator positon at a local AM radio station. I could use some prayer, cause my unemployment runs out at end of April. So this coming month its crunch time. If I don’t find anything in IT, Multimedia, then I’ll go for something that might still benefit me in that. Thanks.March 31, 2009 at 1:36 am #26432
interview went well.
guy was impressed with my audio background and said should be easy learning their system and programs. Said he’ll let me know in a couple of days.
After the interview he showed me around and showed all the radio station studios, its awesome, like walking in a recording studio.
job is for one of the AM stations that Crawford Broadcasting handles, so bigger than I thought and the local christian station is in this building as well.
They have digital boards, use Adobe Audition for editing and then the main program handles their automation of commercials, PSA’s and music.April 1, 2009 at 2:01 pm #26433
May God Bless you with that job. praying man!April 29, 2009 at 3:09 pm #26434
so yeah, forgot to update this, I contacted the station twice and never heard back.
so yeah, bummer, I still need a job. I’ll be out hunting this week and next. Unemployment runs out this week as well. There’s some kind of emergency filing but don’t know all about that. I’ll see this sunday when I do weekly filing. If its a hassle, i’ll just quit and start claiming self employment.May 13, 2009 at 7:53 pm #26435
so to update, like I said unemployment ran out but thankfully week later (last friday) tax return came in. But really don’t want to use all of it so still need a job asap.
AS far as me as musician and knowing about music/recording, not getting the radio job and being told I didn’t have enough experience by a studio before christmas really has me feeling like crap. Makes me feel 15 yrs of my life wasted and nothing to show for.
On the IT, computer side of things, definitely feeling the effects of poor decisions with not immediately taking a job after college and as well based on bad presumptions. Now feel like I can’t even get an entry level job.
so past week or two, been applying for retail positions as well. Re-applied at Best Buy, also Guitar Center and start riding around soon when weather clears.
it just sucks right now for me.May 13, 2009 at 10:38 pm #26436
Dude Dan, I am sorry to hear that man! That really sucks but I know you will find something you are a super talented man! Don’t feel like its wasted years, music is more than about getting money. I know for one your mixes have influenced me as a DJ and influence is something that is worth more than money! Also, keep in mind God has you in His hand maybe he is putting you through this time for a reason.May 14, 2009 at 4:03 am #26437
well right now, anything I’ve learned or know how to do isn’t helping me get a job, so yeah, I feel pathetic right now.
this is just topping off a bad past couple of years:
2007 – lost two uncles, a husky put to sleep, left my last church, and lost all inspiraiton for music and sunk into depression.
2008 – mom on oxygen, couldn’t find anything in a studio job, was fired from first and only job, lost an uncle to cancer
only difference, I leaned on God for support in 2008, where 2007 I didn’t
late 08 into 09 least been learning more biblically, and begging that 2009 will start to look up.July 24, 2009 at 7:58 am #26438
Dun Man i see u have gone and aré going through some tough times. I havent postes up My testimony but will soon… Might help. Any way, be strong man have faith. Remember if our faith is at least as big as a mustard seed we can move mountains. I wasn’t sure why I had passed through so much tragic stuff but know things are much clearer. I never lost faith on the contrary tried to increase it all the time and looked for any moment to praise Him. Still in the situation I am right now that we basically have no money at the moment not even for food or gas and bills have to be paid soon I see a very bright future. I let Him to do his job and I try to follow the pAth He has for me. These fights are won praying down on ur knees before Him. I am sure God has something great for you but remember it’s at His time. Let’s give all the Glory to Him cuz without Him we are nothing. God Bless!August 13, 2009 at 12:30 am #26439
well got good news, got a job…..my old one back. Start monday, good timing cause I’m about out of money. I’ll be still looking into IT and Video jobs, maybe further education.August 13, 2009 at 1:26 am #26440
Congratulations! God always comes through… usually it’s when it’s too late – when we’ve burned through our own resources.August 13, 2009 at 3:27 am #26441
