The Job Search

You know, I spend lots of money to get a piece of paper that says I know something and where do I end up? At the same "paying job" I have had since I was 15.

It is getting very frustrating.

Since April, I have applied to close to 50 jobs and not one has lead to at least an interview. I don't know what I have to do for these employers. I've had the resume properly formatted, I have enough experience and I have a degree. What more do they want? Is it because I'm a fish out of water? Is working at a community/campus station for four years not good enough for experience? Is it because I'm not a visible minority?


I realize something will come eventually. But for now, my patience is wearing a bit thin.

Ah, the wonderful world of the job search.

I sent out four more resumes today. Unfortunately it often doesn't amount to anything. All we can do is keep our fingers crossed.

Dude, you're in good company! I'm more or less in the same boat, but for the past 3 years!! You can't honestly expect to get "the job" after only a few months - that's the exception, not the rule.

Remember: patience is a virtue!

You got that right, Blake. I'm just looking for "a job" rather then "the job."

At least I'm in good company :-)

I think visible minorities are also in the same boat as you.

...nevertheless, hang in there.

"..nevertheless, hang in there."

Yeah, no one is getting a chance.

Too bad there's not temp agency for what I want to do.
