On a different note: is there anything worse than waiting to hear back from job applications/interviews? :(

very little is worse than this tbf
it kills your confidence, distracts you from your current role (if you have one), and the endless geeing yourself up process so that you appear to be a good candidate - gaaaaah !

my tip for this whole process is not to try to smash through loads of aplications in one hit, don't feel bad about zapping a 'jobs you may like' auto email in case you miss a goodie, and just liken it to going out on the pull and yes you will get blown out a lot, but the next one you ask may well be 'the one'

hopefully this will cheer you up Salanya:

Spoiler: show
go on, admit it, you were expecting something rude here ! good luck anyways, I start my new job in a few weeks for a measly 30% pay rise plus car, but have recently just gone through this exact same process

Is that really you Yeeb?! :shock: - Good luck with the new job.

I resigned from my job, and now have 2 weeks left to find a new job and a new home. So the circumstances are the killer here.

Had a second interview last week, but still haven't heard back - apparently the GM is away. Got an interview tomorrow, and had a call that I would get details for an interview on Thursday, but still haven't received the info for this. And then another interview next Tuesday. All decent jobs, but some are better locations or pay better.
It's the whole mindfuk on the possible scenarios: what if they offer this before the other interview, what if I don't hear back from them, am I actually going to be good at any of these jobs?

Well, actually, there are many things. Leavy's injury puts things into perspective a bit :( And then there's ER's challenge to fight the cancer, or things like miscarriages etc.

But as common mental health tests go, it has to be up there.

Why would you resign from a job without another one in place

Maybe she could take no more? One reaches the end point and has to get out? I can imagine this does happen.

Maybe the job caused a mental burn out, which my manager was keen to enflame further, and I was too proud to admit to it and take sick leave and get the Union to support me?

Um- may I suggest this isn't the thread to have a go at someone about anything, whether its a career choice or whatever the subject ?
she's just had the shock of me being nice closely followed by the utter disappointment of not even get to see my Ascii jazzing cock - you should give her a break imho.

Spoiler: show
jayz, that's twice I've got you now Salanya ! stop thinking about my beast ! :lol:

Shit Everready, that sucks but you go this. You'll kick the big C's ass.

Having had a few friends in similar situations I will suggest one thing: when things are tough (and there will be times), don't just bottle it up and pretend everything's ok. Even if it's just to vent on here, on this thread, let it out. Same as everything else we talk about on here, you need some outlet to vent.

You make it sound like a bad thing and are criticising yourself, for something that was a brave and needed call. Big yourself up - you had enough and you weren't willing to take it any more and you did what you had to do, what was best for you: you left. So many in that situation would just put their head down and suffer in silence. You decided to get out. That's not a bad thing, it was brave and good on you. Remember that regardless of what else may happen.

Cheers Leinsterlion, though in fairness I suffered in silence for a good 6 months - it was only once things got tricky that I pulled the trigger. Two interviews this week, and one next week, and still to hear back from one other, so fingers crossed something will come good.
Oh, and I should probably add to the circumstances that I have emigrated so don't have the option to hide with my parents or family, and we're in the middle of a Brexit situation. Luckily there are some friends and a dodgy rugby forum to count on...


Winnie: remember this as the day that you were a bigger dick than Yeeb, shame on you.

See, you're still not letting yourself be praised or be proud! :lol: That's understandable. But from the outside looking in: "though in fairness" nothing. You got out. You did right by you. That wasn't easy - even more so after 6 months of grinning and bearing it. Good on ya.

And yeah, do lean on and hide out with dicks on rugby forums, it's surprisingly helpful :nod: :thumbup:

Never got to say Thank You for the kind words LeinsterLion :thumbup:

Hasn't helped me to find a job yet though. To the point of questioning what I'd actually enjoy in a job. Most jobs include working with people in some form, which is a depressing thought.

And yes, I'm quite aware that in the olden days, people didn't have as high an expectation of a job for it to be
'enjoyable'. But it's 2019, when one expects a job to be 'rewarding' and/or 'enjoyable'.

I read through this thread occasionally, my reaction from FUCK on reading your first post to PHEW in the space of 40 seconds, after reading this one.
Good luck.

Keep at it!

I've quit or took redundancy several times without a job to go to

Don't worry how it looks on your CV, most good companies don't care.

I burned through 49 applications last November. Trying to get a contract in Sydney just before Xmas is almost impossible. But things happen.

Week 1 and a bit in. Not committing to weekly reports as I suspect I won't be arsed fairly quickly. Head and neck cancer treatment sucks and blows and then sucks again but sure tis what it tis. Last Thursday week they started by giving me a anti nausea and steroids in a drip for two hours and then sent me down all hooked up for my radiotherapy. As I am a massive girls knickers I don't like the feeling of being clamped to the table by the head while they zap me. Turns out I am actually ok with it. Image
They then brought me back upstairs wheeling the oul drip and put 100mg cisplatin chemo into me. Turns out this is the highest dose. I get it every three rather than one week and I know so about it. Said It is because I am young and fit, who is to argue, but I am not sure It is worth It. It f**ked me up from Tuesday to Thursday bad. Thought I was a different species and couldn't really move much . Lots of nausea and puking and shit. Wasn't actually able to watch or read anything for days. Would just lie there eyes closed focused on the moment. Not sexy though obviously I still look amazing. The neck tumour is now How to Get Ahead in Advertising big after each day of radio. I suspect by looking at people it may be talking to them but is remaining brutally silent with me. The burning of the throat by the radio is sore and the taste issues annoying but the weakness and nausea is the worst. Fingers crossed I am getting a break from the worst of that until week three. 7 radio sessions of 35 and 1 of 3 chemo and I can report standing again and a solid 6 out of 10 for cancer. HURRAH

Having overcome a far less ingressive cancer than you ER, I'm obviously inclined to say, man-up you soft-cock. However, knowing your situation, readily and without cynicism or sarcasm say, good on you fella; you're stronger than any of this on faux show of big nobs. All the best dude.

My wife was a little 'man uppish' for a few days :lol: Look the treatment is shite but unlike some of the people I am hanging out with the prognosis is good. I am going in and out to a cancer hospital in leafy Rathgar. The serenity is somewhat punctured by the sickness in the walls. The kids I see knocking around are good for any self pity. Actually on the radiotherapy machine they have all stickers for the kids and that gave me a big jolt of man up. They should show me one child each day
