Time to move on

September 10, 2009

The purpose of Lowsaltfoods was to document my job search (and any other random thoughts that popped into all my heads – well not all of them, that would be obscene). Since I have decided to go back to uni to do a PhD, and am therefore no longer looking for a job, it seems kinda pointless to continue updating Lowsaltfoods. So I would like to direct you to my new blog, Green PhD, which will track my progress on the PhD.

You can also follow me on Twitter. (Please…)

Going through the motions

July 31, 2009

Since accepting an offer to do a PhD this autumn, my relationship with job hunting has changed. No longer am I motivated to invest all my time in this relationship with a view to getting something out of it. And yet, it is difficult to let go of the guilt associated with not job hunting after ten months or so of committment. Any attention I go give to this relationshup is simply going through the motions, that it is something I ought to be doing without really knowing why. ┬áThis isn’t helped by continuing to claim Job Seekers Allowance until the start of the PhD. I have to show the government that I am looking for work when in a couple of months I know I will be signing off anyway.

Success!

I haven’t found a job yet but I have finally received an offer to do a PhD, starting this autumn. Looks like I am going back to school.
