Job hunting sux!

Oh my gosh. What a pile of cr*ppy jobs there are available in KZN. So low paid. Robynne says she doesn't know how anyone survives in this province. Well, I wouldn't be able to and I'm starting to think I won't find something here before my funds run out.

So I have been applying for positions in Gauteng in the Northern Suburbs side where Robynne lives. Her roommate is moving out so that wouldn't be a problem but I would still keep my house here in KZN.

This is rather stressful for me because I'm a big nester by nature and I've been roosting here for 6 years now. I don't like moving and neither will my kitties but its do or die at this stage.

Another thing is I won't have my own vehicle to start with when I go to Gauteng. But I have to do it. I can't afford to go under. I have such a lot of experience and skills to offer that its an insult to have to apply for jobs for about R7-8k (or less!) a month which is what is on offer locally here. And nothing directly on my doorstep. And they expect the earth for the miniscule money they are offering. Senior skills for junior money...

I am so ticked off. No wonder I'm getting a headache every day! I am so tired of sitting at home now. I feel like my brain is turning to mush. HELP!

PS A note to my friends. If you have any connections with personnel agencies, please drop me a line and I will get my CV through to you. I have always been employed via agencies and not through answering ads.


  1. Its been my dream (as you know) lol to move to KZN - I really hope something comes up soon you dont have to move!

  2. Girl, it thought you were somewhere in the construction industry? Or what exactly do you do? I ask, cause maybe I have someone that can help?

  3. Tanya - I haven't been in a tearing hurry to move as I'm still situated close to where I was born and brought up. If I get the right salary in the right area, I would stay.

    Cat - I work in admin mainly on the secretarial/PA side. I have worked in many industries with construction being the last.

  4. Thank you Lulu. Im just taking it one day at a time and trusting in God. Thats all any of us can do really.
