Getting Hired by the Numbers

I have been out of work for the past 4 1/2 months, and actively seeking new employment the whole time.  It has been a job in and of itself, and has required that I keep detailed notes of all of my activities so that I can keep everything straight.

Those notes enable a good recap of all that I have done with my time.  The following is the breakdown:

  • 76 total opportunities to which I've applied or conveyed interest to a recruiter
  • 20 interviews with recruiters (via phone, Skype, or in person)
  • 15 interviews with internal HR resources
  • 17 interviews conducted via phone 
  • 30 interviews conducted on-site
  • 83 total interviews
  • 12 different locations visited
  • 7 different states visited
It has been said that the process of finding a job is a job in and of itself.  It sure feels that way in my case.
