Place 72 – Day 412: Vancouver, BC – Not What She Thought

Curtis’ Day

Curtis didn’t have any meeting until 10:30, when he had his Norwegian lesson which went really well.

Once that was done, Curtis had meeting with a few people from his team but also some people from another team which was an information around onboarding.

After lunch, Curtis setup some accounts for a new user and then he did a couple of tickets to end the day.

Kim’s Day

After a nice lazy morning Kim was putting lunch together when she got a phone call from a company asking her in for an interview and the role title was something that she was interested in so she agreed to come in tomorrow. Kim was so excited and happy to see an application submitted yesterday come through so quickly!

After lunch Kim then did a little research on the company and asked for a job description for her to refer to and read through before the interview. The company didn’t have a written job description that they could send over and it had some negative reviews, this made Kim a little uneasy. After a few hours and a bit of back and forth communication, Kim decided to pull her application for the position.

The reviews made the role sound more like a sales position over what was listed and Kim doesn’t want to work in sales, its not a good fit for her.

So for the rest of the afternoon Kim wrote some good cover letters for a few open positions that would fit Kim perfectly. Last week Kim was avoiding applying for any roles that have been listed for more than a few weeks thinking that they would have just forgotten to be removed, but thats not smart. The company may just not have found the right fit yet and Kim may be that perfect fit, so she is really happy with the applications sent out today. Tomorrow Kim will review the saved roles and send out more applications!

Walk

We had leftover curry for dinner and watched a bit of TV, then we went for a nice long walk. It was around 19:30 so it was dark and there were much less people out. It was a super relaxing walk.

We got back and watched some more TV before we slept.

It’s Curtis’ first hockey game tomorrow, as well as his first solo drive in 2 years (and on the other side of the road) so we shall see how that goes!


This Time Last Year!
