Wow does job hunting dredge up so many yucky thoughts.
So many jobs that list tasks that sound dry and boring and not at all what i want to do.
Or a list of tasks that I have no experience in doing. Or I have some, but not all, and you can’t help feeling you’ve failed if you don’t tick everything on what is realistically their wish list!
Or a qualification I don’t have.
Or I have the qualification but not the level of technical proficiency they are seeking.
Then there’s development and overseas jobs. At first blush: adventure! At the second: one day, I hope to have a partner, have children. Is this running away from being a grown up? It is tossing away established friendships (not even romantic relationships) to do something that will be physically uncomfortable, and emotionally challenging? It’s enough to return to looking for a nice office job. With that pesky list of tasks I don’t warm to.
