I have been searching for new jobs for a while now. I like what I am doing now, but it involves a mix of five part time jobs and no long term security.
One job search earlier this summer got to the point where I was in the final two, but they chose the other person.
Another job late in the spring was at the point where I was a finalist - second interview - but they decided to wait until they could do an in-person interview before moving forward.
In that time frame, a novel virus turned into a global pandemic, higher education budgets everywhere exploded and I got an email yesterday saying that they decided they couldn’t fill the position.
