Now don’t let the title above fool you. I still have not found a new job between blog postings. But it is kind of interesting how a person that is unemployed like myself unexpectedly starts a night shift. This shift is not your typical eight hours of work. Could be eight hours or more or even less, it totally depends on what you are willing to put into it.

It’s that time of night when all is said and done with your day and you have completed all your errands and phone calls for whatever you needed to do during the day. And once all is quiet and you know that your friends and family are asleep and will not be calling you on the phone late night.

That is when “the night shift” begins. It’s that time of night when you go online to see if there are any new job postings that you can apply for. After all… the Internet is open twenty-four hours, seven days a week.

We start with the thought “Let’s see if there is anything out there.” And we go from there. Plus the fact that no one will be disturbing you does allow you to concentrate at the task at hand. And sometimes you might find a new job posting that you might have missed before or have not seen. There is kind of a “gun ho” feeling to it. As if you are the first person trying to get to the North Pole.

How so is it like being the first person trying to get to the North Pole you ask? It’s a journey that you may not be able to reach, but it’s worth the risk in taking. You don’t know if you will get there, and you don’t know if you are going to get called for an interview. But you take the risk in trying.

As well when you look for employment late night you might consider options as well that you might not have considered before. You take the time to think what might work for you and you ponder the options that you may have. And in some cases you may even go to bed and think about it and come up with a decision in the morning, or all in good time.

It’s a way to see if you can discover the new job posting first, and be one of the elite few that applies for it ahead of all the other applicants and gets called in for the interview before anyone else does. Mind you there is no guarantee that this will work, but we make an attempt to see if we can pull it off.

It’s a time slot that most people don’t normally work. Unless you have actually worked a night shift before, but when one is unemployed you just might be open to do so. After all come to think of it. If you can spend a few hours late night looking for work, why not try applying for a job with similar hours?
