At my place of work we have two busy seasons, one at the beginning of the year and one in the middle of the year…My work, in general terms, is to help students enrol into their classes at an Adult Learning pace. It’s not like High School where we have to chase them, but its not as complex as University either…For my Australian readers, I work at my local TAFE. We have two semesters, Semester 1 which is from January to July. Then Semester two runs from July for the rest of the year.
Well I am glad I don’t have to deal with 800 – 1000 students a day anymore. However, this means that my work dries up…Incredibly…My work place doesn’t always think they can justify having us casuals about the rest of them time. So where we might get a couple of days a week, the work is now drying up…Which as you can imagine is scary.
I’m applying for job, but it always makes me sad, in the last few quieter seasons I have been lucky with people going on holidays, or leaving entirely, leaving space for us casuals to work. I’m just not sure it’s going to happen this time.
This weekend I am going to try and have fun and try not to be to hard on myself. I have been applying for work and have had a couple of interviews, but nothing yet…So I think that I definitely need a fun weekend this weekend and try not to worry…Wish me luck!
