Job Hunting

For many months I've known that I need to be looking for a job...five months actually.  I've been putting it off for the most part.  I mean, I've thought about where I might like to work...and where I know I DON'T want to work.

For 15 years I've come to the same job, I've worked with some of the same people for 15 years.  I've progressed from a front desk receptionist starting my senior year of high school to a project engineer/manager that is so close to finishing my second associates degree (I know it should be more than that).  So much growth has occurred at this company - personal growth and growth as a company.

My dad has been with the company 40-something years, which means while I've had this job 15 years this has been my life...forever.  I take my work home, I dream about it, it's discussed at the dinner table and around the table at the bar.  It's a huge part of my life.

And now...this part of my life is coming to an end.  In the next two months I will be out of a job and the company will be liquidated.  I've been asking myself for months...What do I want to do?  Am I good enough at what I do to go somewhere else and do it?  Do I even want to?  This is an opportunity for me to start start fresh. 

I've been on websites for hours looking at job openings...hours!!!  I've looked local, I've looked other places.  I cannot find anything that I feel "fits" me.  But I don't know what exactly fits me, this is the ONLY job I've ever had.
