What I have been up to

It's been awhile since the last time I listed anything on my blog.  I have been a little busy.

Since the last posting, I lost my job.  I was part of a reduction in force from a government contract.  I was on various contracts at this one location for over 14 years.  The company I worked for was a major computer manufacturing company that has a government contracting division.  I have been looking for a job since.  I have had a few interviews, but nothing definite.  It seems like most of the people I get contacted by are head hunters or resume collectors.  They advertise they have a job and you apply.  They call you in and then inform you there is no job, but they expect some coming up really soon.  After this, you never hear from them again.  I hate dealing with them.  They get your hopes up only to dash them really quickly.

On the good side, I have had some promising interviews from a few companies.  I am waiting for them to call me back.  The good things are none of them are for a head hunter or a company that has a government contract.  I don't  think I want to go back to do contracting for the government.  It is unstable.  Every 3-5 years, you could be out of a job.  I was one of the lucky ones that stayed working for an extended period of  time.

I have also been working on my artfire studio and my web page.  I have been retaking pictures and editing them to make things look a lot better.  I have also taken quite a few pictures of some new items. I have them listed.  I have made it up to 180 items on my artfire page.  Once I get the web page done, I will be listing some more items on artfire.

I am hoping the next few months things will improve.
