(December 20, 2012)
It’s just been a month since I hired Roman to research job opportunities for me. He has worked 30 hours for now and therefore, I have spent $36 up to now.
He has researched over a hundred places in Munich complete with contact information, the career’s webpage and the location. Everything is nicely spread out in a spreadsheet.
It’s time to assess how far he has gotten in researching the whole city. I’ve asked him about making a schematic illustration about which places in Munich he has already taken care of. Unfortunately, the communication is a little bit lacking. That might be because my virtual assistant is away at the moment or a problem on his side.
In comparison, the cooperation with Muhammad was disturbingly demotivating to say the least. I’ll save that for a series of other posts.
The hardest part of the whole job search is yet to come. I’ll have to take that list of over a hundred job contact opportunities and phone or email each one of them. If after all that, I cannot find a place to work then it’s probably time to cut corners and change the location.
P.S. – While Roman focused on scouting the web for job opportunities in the areas of Chemistry or Biochemistry, I took the freed up time to visit a few job fairs and send out a few more job applications on my own.
