It's been a while, hasn't it?

So...I started in a new job a little over a month ago. It's another of those 6 months contracts, and even though my manager has already asked me if I'd like to stay on IF a position opens up within the company, I'll probably be jobless again by September. Until then though, I'll just give it everything I have; while applying for other jobs outside of the company in my spare time.

I'm working as a training coordinator for a marketing analytics company, and the clue to my job description is in the title: I plan and coordinate the training sessions for our partners and clients in the EMEA region, so that they can become certified (super)users of our marketing and business analytics software. Once they've reached that status, they'll be able to measure and weigh the reach and effectiveness of their online presence and campaigns. Our clients are mostly publishers, media agencies and broadcasting organisations, but there's also a few charities, non-profit health organisations, and even a cruise liner company that want to find out whether their investments in online platforms are paying off. The trainings can be delivered online, through open enrolment, or in company as a live classroom session, and can last from a few hours to a few days. It's an interesting new area for me, and I've taken a few online courses myself to familiarise myself with the product -- but mainly I'm just there to look after the organisational and administrative sides of things.

David Berkeley visited The Netherlands in the last week of March, and I took some of my erstwhile colleagues at Curvature to see him in Amsterdam. I was a bit nervous about bringing them, but I needn't have been: they absolutely loved him. Note to self: you have got excellent taste in music, so by all means, share it!

You know you are good at what you turn your hand to, keep looking, I believe a secure job is waiting for you!

One thing that has crossed my mind: are there any paid positions within your church? They must have employees dealing with something that falls in your experience? Something in their charity or fundraising structure? Then you could combine work with something that gives you satisfaction.

Funny you should say that: the church's secretary retired a few days ago, and her position was advertised in the parish bulletin at the beginning of Feb. Many people within the church urged me to apply for it, and I did consider it for about 5 minutes, when I noticed that it would only be for 12 hours a week.

Our church is very active and all that, but that's because its parishioners volunteer for almost everything. In a financial sense, it's barely ticking over.
