In Which I Face The Silence

More than one person has remarked to me that this is a terrible time to look for a job, because it's the holiday season and everyone is busy with end of year hustle and bustle, or taking time off, or planning holiday parties and Secret Santas, etc. I don't begrudge anyone holiday cheer, but the silence is starting to grate on me.

My headhunter turned out to be a bust, I'm not corporate enough for her client. I've had a few rejections, and more silence. I've applied for three jobs today, and I am working on arranging an informational interview with a contact of a friend.

One thing I keep coming back to is the idea of teaching. I'm thinking of it as a way to return to my love of learning and take on something more challenging than I've done with my life so far. On the other hand, I don't know if I want to take a pink-collar job. I don't necessarily want to be typecast in a typical female role. Although, to look at the development world right now, that's becoming a pink-collar job too.

Update:

Just got a request for an interview! And at one of my top choice institutions! Huzzah!
