Oy....

so.....


i hope this doesn't turn into a complainy blog....that is not my intent. i just feel like i have a massive pit in my stomach. you know that kind of feeling where...how do you even describe it...like you're homesick, have a massive paper due tomorrow but haven't started it, sick, miserable, sad...all at once - pit. ugh.


i don't want to go to work tomorrow.


i've been looking for a new job. receptionist. something above receptionist. something history related. i even looked into going back to school for my masters and found not one of the programs is offered in mn. i've applied to at least 15 jobs - no one is hiring - and have not recieved one call for an interview. i'm at a loss....


any suggestions?

No bright ideas here, as I also have not yet succeeded in removing myself from my sucky job. But hey, misery loves company, and I am feeling the same sense of dread with regard to going to my job tomorrow morning.

I'll let you know when I come up with a brilliant plan.

Yes, send me your resume and let's brainstorm. I have some connections in the metro area and we might have more luck with networking.

Have you thought about temping or working with a recruiter/headhunter?

k-dog: yes...a brilliant plan! someday...someday....

holly: THANK YOU! i'll send my resume on over this evening. if you see anything that needs tweaking - go right ahead. perhaps it sucks and that's why i can't get an interview. hmm....

but yeah - your help would be much appreciated!

carrie: i'm actually set up with two temp agencies right now and they have nothing...it's wierd...

You have probably already done this, but since you mentioned a degree in history, have you checked with the Minnesota Historical Society?

i check their website pracitally every week looking for new job postings. i wish had applied for a tour guide position back in feb/april....i didn't think it would work financially then but now i don't care...

This economy blows right now. I'm thinking of you... I hate that you are so miserable! Hugs. xo

I suggest applying for a position at the historical society that does not exist. Send them your resume and let them know your interests. I got a job that wasn't published here at the U because I emailed the most intimidating person on their website and asked for a job. If you are a qualified (optimistic) candidate, you might be able to wiggle your way in!
Good luck!
