… is happening right now.
Last Friday my husband helped me make apple juice.
10 kg of apples gave around 3.5 l of juice.
he apples are not very juicy, so the pulp was quite dry and that’s fine, meaning all the juice is drained. We didn’t filter it much and then or was pasteurized heating it up to 85°C for 10 minutes. The last few days we had a lot of sun and now autumn had set in. The apples are ripe, dropping off the tree.
This week I’m attending a Photoshop training in Vejle. I go by train every day, until today I’ve been enjoying the 40 min. trip seeing the sun rising.
I haven’t worked with Photoshop for more than 15 years, so it’s very exciting learning new stuff.
As usual I have more than 12 applications out. Today there was finally one positive response. A recruiter called me and asked if he could send my application and CV on to the hiring manager. Of course I said yes and now I’m in limbo again…
Let’s be honest, the Danish job market is looking for either a) skilled craftsmen or b) skilled engineers.
Regarding the craftsmen, various Danish governments have for the last 20 years or more, only supported academic education, meaning Denmark is heavily importing workers from other countries. Today our educational system encloses more than 500 (!) different educations whereas almost none are for the building and technical industries. This means we have a deficit of at least 10.000 skilled craftsmen (and women) in the workforce. On the other hand, Denmark has an overload of academic work force with educations that are not needed.
I’m not an academic, so I’m too over qualified for some jobs and under qualified for others. However I’ve got more that 20 years of experience in Sales, Project Management, Engineering, Service and HSE.
I’m struggling very hard to apply for the right jobs, but never the less I’m not asked in for job interviews – as in NONE AT ALL…
One rejection after another, can take the best intentions out of any person. After 40 years, you are regarded as not interesting to the job market unless you are a specialist.
Meanwhile, waiting for a job, I’m just going to have fun and learn more. That’s the only thing I can do right now…
