Trying To Believe In Something Better

BELIEVEWell you all know how the job search has gotten me down.  No one in the security field will even contact me in response to my resume.  But, I can’t believe that these certifications mean nothing!  I have 25 years’ experience (lots of starts and stops, thank you Bipolar Disorder) but still I do have the experience in the IT field.  So, I thought, maybe I should shoot for an entry-level Systems Engineer job, because Systems Engineers become Security Engineers!  I mean, I have to be strategic here and play the long game.  So, today I have been applying for every single entry-level Systems Engineer job I can find.  Maybe I will have a better shot at getting a response.  I don’t know.  But I can’t just give up and go back to my old field.  I didn’t work so hard these past few months on these certifications just to go back to Desktop Support.  There HAS to be a way forward!!!!!

“Believe” is my faith word and it is what has gotten me through many a hard time.  Believe things can be better.  Believe you can get through this.  Believe you can rise above.  I have to Believe.  Bipolar Disorder doesn’t have me beaten.

P.S. – I put this “BELIEVE” sign in every room of my house to remind me 🙂

  1. relax…if it all happened at once you;d be just as freaked out… these could be your last days of freedom for a while once you get a job…try and enjoy them… give my love to the birds xxxx

  2. If its any consolation I was in similar state a few days ago, and then everything changed… for the better, fingers crossed.. 🙂 keep the faith… also, do all companies drug test ? might be worth narrowing down to those that don’t, also… you have 25 years experience plus qualifications…start looking for a compnay YOU wnat to work for …value your ass :))
