Un-Wonderful Time of the Year

It is budget time at work. It is my least favorite time of the year. I have worked 12 days straight and counting. I am scheduled to work both tomorrow and Sunday as well. I am so exhausted that my eyes have formed into slits.

I am not getting overtime but I am banking comptime which I will use to go on the trip with my MBA program. Although I originally signed up for the trip, that was before I found out about my whole job situation so mentally I opted out. All of a sudden last weekend in the midst of my stress, I decided that I needed a break and since my hotel and flight were paid for by the school, that I should take advantage of the once in a lifetime opportunity.

As I said earlier, I am just super tired and next week is the final week of classes so I have a ton of work to do. Next week is also the last week to wrap up the budget process at work so it will be hell on earth. It really hit me that my job will be no longer as I looked in our online system and saw that I was disapproved to receive funding for next fiscal year. I've been on a couple of interviews but no bites as of yet but I am still optimistic. I am noticing that a couple of people inquire about my pursuing my Master's, wondering how I will be able to work and attend school. I am half way through my program, obviously, I am doing something right. I am thinking about taking that off of my resume until I am finish. Does anyone have any advice on that?

I'm applying for a few jobs that don't require advanced degrees and thought about taking them off of my resume, too. Since yours is in progress and people are hassling you, it might not hurt to remove it. I hope you get some rest soon!! And I'm very glad you're going on your trip!

Thanks Jameil! I will do like you, if an advanced degree isn't required I will remove it from my resume. It is a shame that people hold pursuing a higher education against you....

That shouldn't be an issue since you're currently working and pursuing a Master's, riight?

I would remove it until you actually receive the degree. With there being so many people out of work you don't want them to look over your resume and give you that terrible line of.."You're OVER qualified." Once you get the job and receive your degree then post it on your resume. Wishing you all of the best and lots of rest.
