I’ve been using the Wake County Public Library as a means for escape and an excuse for not being more diligent in my job search.
After all, it’s hard for me to get a lot of quality job application work done when I’m restricted to 45 minutes. I know that I’m not alone in this, but to write a good cover letter takes a lot time and effort. And articulating a cover letter with specifics as to why I want the job and think that I would be a good fit is an important aspect of the application. Without those things I have a hard time going through an interview process with any sense of conviction and investment. A “buy in” is important to me.
So I’ve hidden behind both the accessibility and restrictions of the library’s internet policy.
But this afternoon I made another visit to the Geek Squad and the technician provided me with a cost-effective plan of action. The first step involves me calling for the VAIO recovery disk. I’m going to do that today. As soon as I leave here.
My dad and Joe both offered to get my computer back in tip-top shape for me. I declined though. I have to be responsible for the health of my own computer. It’s one of the doors to employment and I need to be the primary guardian and conduit for accomplishment.
