Job Hunt

Well, now that the festivities are over and I am settling into married life, it's time to really focus on my job hunt. I am very anxious to find something. I've been sending out resumes since I moved to California but I haven't gotten a single interview. It can get you down. I know everyone has been there. Luckily, I'm not in financial dire straits but I would really like to be working again. I don't want another library job. I'd like to teach at a community college or work in a museum. And, if that doesn't work out, it would be nice to work at some sort of non-profit. Most of the jobs I would like are difficult to get because those institutions tend to hire from within. Grrr... In the meantime, I keep trying to network. Hopefully, something will turn up.

On another note, check out the new "plain and simple" book by Ellen. It's called "WHAT JESUS SAID" and it is great! When is that girl going to start publishing and making some money?!!

job hunting sucks. SUCKS. good luck. You should try contacting the career office at Trinity and Univ of Denver, if you haven't already. They're not super helpful, but they can give you names of other alumni in your area to contact, which is a start for networking. You never know who will know someone... they also should be able to give you access to postings that aren't going to be listed in normal places like newspapers and stuff.

Thanks, Vieve. That's a good idea. By the way, how is YOUR job hunt going? You can let me know offline. Hope you are well....
