Did the knocking on doors thing about five weeks ago in the oil patch. Most offices were very polite and said maybe in a couple of months. But there were also several that were were a little more positive.
Since then one company got back to me, and I was hired. It was one of the companies that I really hoped to go with, and I accepted the position.
