A job opportunity popped up in which I would earn more with a bit less responsibility. I had signed up for LinkedIn Premium earlier this year to help me with a job search. There are tons of opportunities out there. The trouble is sorting through and choose for which to apply. I would get anxious just thinking about filling out so many applications and writing so many resumes. But as it turns out, this is less of a burden with Mem.ai in my corner.
Mem.ai is a personal knowledge management system that uses AI to self-organize my notes. It also allows for wiki-like linking between notes. And, Mem.ai has a Chat feature that uses my notes to do what Chat GPT does, except that the results are tailored specifically for me.
So, I loaded the new job description into one note. Then I created a second note with my work history. I asked MemX (that's what they call the AI feature) to create a resume for me. Oops, I forgot to add my certifications and skills. Boom. Done. Cover letter? Here's a template.
This job is local and would have a meaningful raise in compensation for me. I couldn't drag my feet. There are opportunities on LinkedIn that interest me. However, many do not list their salary range. So, I'd hate to do all that work to discover that they pay the same or only slightly more than what I'm earning now. That's a lot of time rewriting my resume for each company.
Now that I've actually done it once, I find that it's not so bad. I think I may venture to apply to one or two jobs per week. It doesn't hurt to explore my options. There are even some opportunities for remote work. That would be ideal. I'd take a remote work job that pays the same as I'm earning now. I wouldn't need a car.
Or, I could look for a completely different job that requires travel. What would have been a burden seems more manageable now. It's such a relief. I'm excited to look for a job now. It's an amazing age in which we live.
