If I need to, I will definitely hold on to the job I get and try to work our way around this job-related-misery in whatever tiny ways I can

There is a lot of debate going on about certain comments Prince Harry made on what is being dubbed as the “great resignation”. He said he’s quite happy people have quit jobs that make them unhappy or negatively affect their mental health. He said, and I quote, “Many people around the world have been stuck in jobs that didn’t bring them joy, and now they’re putting their mental health and happiness first. This is something to be celebrated.”

I truly feel like I’m starting over but I can’t start because I don’t know where to, and this bout’s acceptance process has left me holistically exhausted, apathetically hopeless, and aimlessly wandering

I have absolutely no desire to find a job in my career field and I lost the one person who fully knew and loved me throughout my life. What do I do with that? What, of value, do I even have left? I don’t know who I’m turning into but I know God can make something of her with however much time she has on earth.

I wanted to know that I matter, that my life matters in this world, that my existence has significance

I realized that everything I had been doing in my life, everything that I had been building up to, such as my high-paying job and my condo ~ it was all an illusion, it was all a facade. What was the point of stressing myself out for five years if I were to lose it all one day? Why did I have to suffer for nothing? Losing everything in the pandemic made me start to question what the purpose of everything was. Why was it that we spend our whole youth spending six hours in a classroom, which most subjects we don’t even use and why do we take such big gambles such as paying thousands of dollars for an education that does not guarantee a job or if we get one, we could lose it in an instant due to factors outside of our control? Why did thousands of people need to die needlessly in the pandemic, including someone I knew, who was young and vibrant, at the start of her career?

I stepped back, regrouped, and put my intention out in a detailed and specific way

Keywords: posts

I chose a couple locations and told the Universe that I wanted to be there. I was willing to compromise on the job, but not the setting or the living situation. I also wanted a specific sort of housing. I will not live with a roommate, no matter how perfect s/he is. I have already decided that even living with Jesus would be a challenge. Though, that whole water to wine thing would be handy. Anyway I got clear and specific. I was feeling this process way more than previously. I had found my vibe.

If you don’t have an “in” with the company you are applying with, you have a little better than a snowballs chance in hell of getting hired

When companies post jobs on sites like Indeed; the majority of the time that post is there for HR reasons, and they will most likely already have a list of candidates to interview. These candidates are F/As that they have a prior connection with- by previous contract employment, a referral from inside the company, or someone that the hiring manager already knows and likes. IF they run out of those candidates, then they will move on to the hundreds of applications they got from the websites. I am telling you this because It is reality in corporate aviation, and you NEED to know it to get a job…

I advise you not to apply for jobs through LinkedIn and instead go directly to the company’s website or other job boards like Indeed or Glassdoor

One advantage that I do utilize LinkedIn for is your ability to search a company and then look at the employees who are currently working there. You can find people in positions similar to what you are looking for and try to connect with them that way, or see if you have any mutual connections. Better yet, after finding these potential connections try going to the company’s website and looking at their leadership/team page and see if they leave their contact information. Do they have an email address listed? Is it a uniform format for each employee? If so, you can bet that if you use that email format with the person’s name that you found on LinkedIn you want to connect with that they will receive your email.
