So, it’s Saturday morning, 7am. I’ve been awake for two hours by now. I made myself a cup of tea, trying to digest the week. Outside its 1°C, the first autumn frost will probably set in next week. The squirrel runs around on the lawn and terrace making quite a show.
My first week of Photoshop training was good, but hard. The basics are in place by now.
I got two rejections for jobs I really would have liked to have. Yesterday also a short message from a company that the interview round had been suspended. Strange, the job ad was publicised last week, I applied last Sunday so why on earth area they already suspending it?
Anyway, I got tools now to pimp up my applications. And boy I need to do that. Wednesday I got a call from my unemployment insurance fund. Apparently the nice lady had been going through and reviewing all my applications on Jobnet.dk where I log my job searches and upload all applications when they are send. She wondered why I was doing my applications and my CVs the wrong way. I was quite baffled, as part of my release plan from the previous job, I attended a 3 month coaching and job search training. I have updated my LinkedIn profile exactly as I was told to do, I write all applications exactly as I learned. And now, apparently it’s all been wrong… Damn, I need to start all over again…
Goodbye, weekend… I must read a 38 page report on the current job market in Denmark and employer requirements and adapt both applications and CV to that.
Last night we started up the Sports for Fun season. It’s in our sports centre where kids and parents can meet every last Friday during the winter season and do stuff together. You can play badminton, handball, football, rifle shooting, archery, squash, swim and finally the smallest guests can jump and play in the large gym with the Air Track and do trampoline and tumbling. All for DKK 20 per person, that’s cheap for four hours of fun.
Oh, I forgot, esports of course. The newest addition to the centre. FIFA, CS:GO, Fortnite, you name it.
I normally sit at the entrance cashing in. It’s great fun, you get to talk with a lot of people and see the kids have fun. We are all volunteers, the money we earn goes only to pay expenses (lifeguards, sandwiches and rifle ammo) and buying new stuff for the sports centre.
Last night we had more than 530 paying guests! By the end of the season in March, all the volunteers eat together and decide what to spend the money on. The clubs in the sports centre can apply for an amount each and we then try to favour as many wishes as possible.
No photos today… I’ve been too busy to find interesting this week…
