Busy All The Way - Part 3

Days 5,6,7 (Working Day 3,4,5) since I am free.

Never thought that jobless days would be as busy or even more busy than a regular day at office.
With the number of calls and emails being answered, it is quite a tough time to catch up with everything.

While overall the prospects are looking good, it is definitely a period of apprehension. The motivation to keep going is the good feedback that I am getting from my Interviews. I finally stopped all job hunt on Friday and decided not to continue with it until Monday.

Some things that I did to focus on the search are

1) Configure outlook so that my emailing has an office feel to it (and also to get rid of the Yahoo blue indentation while replying or forwarding emails
2) Configure Google calendar to sync with my Android mobile phone. Gets me organised with tasks and meetings. The plus point is that SMS alerts can be set for the meetings and I will get the location and reminder by SMS even if I have turned of mobile data to preserve power.
3) Update email signature, linkedin profile.
4) Add numbers to phone contact list as soon as I receive a call.
5) Tweak SOHO for job search

Had a technical interview on Day 7, more details later.

So long, friends.
