I gave myself a 6 month paid break to follow my dreams, and I’ve captured a few and it has been lovely. I had hoped to build up enough of a portfolio to work from home but although that has gone well, and I do have some happy customers and the promise of referrals and more work, it hasn’t yet achieved living wage status, and can be maintained part time. I now have to go job hunting. Just the thought makes me practically tearful, which should make for some interesting interviews.
“So, why do you want to work here?”
“Actually” sniffs and wells up “I don’t, really” *breaks down in sobs. Escorted gently but firmly from premises*
Anyone know of any jobs where snivelling and occasionally weeping isn’t a bar to success?
