So it’s happened. After waiting for over a year to get a job, especially a job in my field, I’ve finally got one!
I am now a microbiological technician for Lab Support, signed on for a six-month contract with Silliker, Inc., a food safety company right here in Columbus. Although I’m not working closely with any bacteria yet, I’m enjoying the work enough that I hope Silliker hires me at the end of the six months.
To close this update, I have a word of advice for anyone who’s struggling to find jobs by online search engines. Try looking for jobs the old-fashioned way, using employment agencies, and if you can, try contacting those employment agencies the old-fashioned way, using your phone. Because that’s how I found my new job, when I was about ready to give up on Monster and Indeed.com.
