Many families living in Victoria have to deal with an issue that not many talk about, and that is many families are separated because one of the spouses or family member have to leave to find work. Yes we hear about how there are jobs in Victoria, blah blah blah.. but unless you know someone who knows someone forget it. Or your promised a job if you get the right ticket, and once you get that ticket your completely ignored by the people that promised you the job in the first place ( which has happened to a friend of mine)
It's so frustrating to not know when I will see the love of my life again, it's hard on my daughter as well, all because no one would give him a chance, an opportunity to show what he can do. That he is a hard worker and isn't afraid to get his hands dirty.
I found it funny that it was a headhunter who tracked him down from a 3 year old resume that had all his old information on, and was determined to have him for this job. I find it odd and frustrating that a company wanted him badly enough to fly him to Calgary yet no one here (cough cough engineering firms) wouldn't even look at his resume, even thou he helped restructure many well known buildings heck even our lovely Empress, when it was required to be updated in the electrical field. He has knowledge of many different fields including solar energy and diesel engines and how to integrate this technology. But do you think something like this would be useful for a company... I would have thought, but GUESS NOT.
Am I frustrated.. YOUR DAMN RIGHT, so now time is ticking down to when he has to get back on the plane in a few hours and head back to Calgary. At least we know that my daughter and I will get to see him again at the end of July. Right now he tries to fly back ( if plane ticket cost is low) about every 6 to 8 weeks, and only gets about 4 days ( if he comes on a long weekend) and then gone again. Saying good-bye doesn't get easier, if anything it's getting harder and harder. I miss my best friend.
This is my rant, I had to get it off my chest... thanks for reading.. or more just letting me go off..
