moving away

I think I'm going to have to leave Bville. There just aren't any friggin' jobs here. Yeah, so: I didn't get the group interview job with the bunch of crazy peoples who had 15-20 years more experience than me and were still applying for a job that paid 26K a year, full-time no benefits.

Depressed again. Trying to get psyched up to find something wonderful somewhere else. How is it possible to feel more unqualified the more experience and education I receive? Is America set up to make sure everyone has to move away? I know I learned tons at SAIC, so how can I overcome the "Artsy Fartsy" bias I think I get from businesses and schools? How do I explain that experience so the intensely practical and constant-action learning character of it comes across? Where should I look (how many places at once)? Should I be saving every penny right now to pay a pet and security deposit?


Cute Puppies:
Well that's a bummer. Don't move anywhere until you have the job, that's my advice. I would have been majorly screwed had I moved to Philly before actually being offered employment.
Yeah, I agree on that one. At least here I have 2(occasionally+) little bitty jobs and only utilities to pay.
Plus a mother and a few friends to torture regularly.

It's just so darn hard to figure out what the future might strive towards.

Thanks for writin' CC.
the puppies are cute.
The Corgy is my sister's pup, and her favorite trick to play after Herald's been chewing on her head for too long is to run him off cliffs into face-plants. She's done it three times... two frequent for accident, no? I keep waiting for H to figure it out, but The Corgy's clever, very clever.
