I made a new page. Look up and you’ll see all the Case Files organized in one place. See what unemployment does for blog productivity? Too bad it’s still just a hobby.
So, have I mentioned I’m looking for a job?
Oh yeah, I have.
Every morning, I wake up and head down to my computer and boot up the most trusty job search engine in my experience: Craigslist.
Every job I’ve ever gotten since the dawn of the internet has been discovered on this website. I’ve tried all the other fancy ones like Career Builder and Monster, but they stink.
I’ve never had the opportunity to regularly peruse other city’s craiglist postings on a regular basis. In Florida, I always found posts like this one:
Stuff that just looks sketchy. Amateur models. Warnings to avoid women with the name Aashley – with two As, mind you. Lots of opportunities for sales and getting sucked into pyramid schemes.
So, here I am in the Pacific Northwest. The vibe is different, just as the landscape and the weather. So are the opportunities for employment.
Now, at first I was like “Twinkies?” this sounds insane.
But, it’s just a bunch of do-gooders wanting to end childhood obesity. I can get in on some of that action. I’m passionate about that issue.
Then, I realized there’s just an abundance of activism. I see a lot of stuff about saving the Puget Sound.
You open up the ads and there are a lot of promises for saving the world!
I want to save the world! I want to help the wildlife! I want to help prevent childhood obesity! I keep finding myself thinking, “Well, maybe I can do this until I get a real job.”
But, I won’t. I’ll keep chugging along and applying, applying for jobs. Maybe I’ll save the wildlife during my retirement. I certainly don’t want to subsidize Twinkies anymore.
