The Job Search Woes Thread

Post by Mimi »

I just need a place to whine and motivate. What better place than a public forum. :shifty:

Everyone welcome. Let's make it a party.

My woe is this: I have decided that, despite being a feminist, I would like to be a lady of leisure. Sure, I will do some "volunteer work" (i.e. lend my name to a gala committee), but otherwise, I will dedicate my life to going to Pilates in the morning and coffee klatches in the afternoon. The only problem is that I can't afford to do this.
Got a Rake? Sure!

I have been there and it is a Purgatory. What kind of work are you looking for?

One that pays. :lol:

I'd like to get back into IT but my skills are dated.

Consider creatively bullshitting. Sadly honestly rarely gets you ahead.

I'm beginning to see that about the honesty.

Is there a short continuing ed class you could take to brush up on your skills?

I was working as a stay-at-home dad, but thanks to our insurance not covering my son's autism therapies, I'm deep in the hunt for a job with good pay/insurance and that isn't happening. Ugh.

Heh. Career Opportunities just came on. No kidding.

Rarely do I call for rounding any group up for hanging but I would do so for insurance executives.*


*Total bullshit, I constantly call for mass hangings.

And yes, there are not enough lampposts for the insurance industry.

It still boggles my mind that we live in a country where a devastating illness or other diagnosis that is not one's fault can completely bankrupt a person. If my parents didn't help us out when Scott got sick, we would have been screwed.

That's why I want to hang the lamppost people.
