For the second time in a week I’ve been put on hold. I chased the UN HR department last Friday (what a pleasure chasing those departments always is) and was told that the recruitment decision had been delayed for ‘some more weeks’. I emailed back to ask whether that meant June or July but didn’t get a reply…This process is a bit like unrequited love: you don’t dare write, for fear of offending the desired party; when you get a reply you eagerly respond and then wonder what you said that put them off writing back.
And, since I was told today that I was coming to the end of my freelancing, I am back to square one. So tonight I cleaned off my kitchen blackboard. Tomorrow I’ll decide what to put on it, what’s next.
