I have interviewed at a couple of places and just sent in my resume to two more yesterday. One of them was my former employer. I have requested information on two positions from them now and have not received a reply on either. I asked the CEO, who I have considered a bit of a mentor, if I should continue to apply or if my time with the Society is over. His reply was silence. Deafening, crushing silence.
This is someone who, a year ago, told me I was in the position and had the talent to run any department he could think of within a not-for-profit association. To quote the great, misunderstood Paula K.: "I don't get it."
Couple this with the fact that I am not getting call backs on my interviews and I am feeling utterly unemployable after 3 years on the Mommy Track. I don't know what to do. I have been applying for positions at the level I was at, some below and some above. I am starting to panic. I know staying home with Jack was absolutely the right thing to do and I would not change a thing given the chance. But really? After 3 years I am untouchable? How the fuck does that happen? I am trying really hard not to be bitter about it, but as you can see, failing miserably at that, too. I am going to go load up on Effexor now.
