Maybe It's Not Monday?
Stupid thought because, of course, it is. Monday, I mean. It always comes. Always will, unless one simply fails to wake up some Monday morning.
How does one go about finding a new job in this atrocious economy? I've been looking for months, to no avail. Nothing. I check the newspaper classifieds every morning. Zilch. I check the state employment site and Craigslist umpteen times a day. Nada. Oh, there are jobs available, if I were willing to, say, telemarket, groom dogs, swab toilets, or babysit -- or if I were qualified for one of the numerous jobs in the medical field. For the work I do, the work I'm good at, the work I've always done, there's just nothing. Nothing advertised, anyway. Clearly, when one wants to stay within one's own area of expertise, networking is the way to go, but I have to be very careful about that because my field is a pretty insular little community and word would get back to Boss Lady pretty fast. I'm perfectly willing to get out of legal and do something else -- if only there was something else being advertised and accepting résumés. I feel like I'm backed into a corner and I don't like it one little bit.
Anyway ... Happy Monday!
