Just applied for jobs for 8 hours straight

Jul 29, 2015 11:18 PM

Just realized I've been applying for jobs for 8 hours straight, non-stop. No food. Nothing. Just robotically entering my information over and over praying.
Now, of course, I have a migraine brewing. Plus my pelvic pain was already off the chart so I've been in bed doing all this on my smartphone. Yeah, that's real smart. So much pain. Everywhere now... Didn't sleep last night because I was applying for jobs. Better sleep tonight I have an interview for one. So exhausted. Feel like a ghost or zombie. Robot something. I should find food and medication.

Wynnbliss, go rest and take care of yourself. Eight applications is a lot. Pamper yourself and even take a nap, but definitely rest. Wishes and prayers the right job is going to come through very soon! 🙏🌼

That's a long time to be on your phone, good luck with the interview! In the future, you could try getting an oversize yoga ball. Don't bow it up all the way, and let it be bouncy. It helps me a bit when I need to be sitting for a long time.
My dad's likely going to be doing the same thing the next few weeks. I'm looking for places my friend can work without parent permission being needed because they're either of of the country, or have disowned her. She'll be 18 later this year, so we're looking for places that might have use for Japanese/English translating.

What about using Monster, indeed or Career builder? They do not require you to input all the information repeatedly. Put it in once and mostly done. Don't do this on your phone. You know you are going to be in pain later. Hope you get some relief from the pain and find a job soon.
