Resumé Hell

For those of you dear to me, it isn't fresh news to know that I am on the holy quest for a job. My last comfy work from home job dissolved right before my eyes as the business I worked for was sold. My division was completely phased out. I was phased out. hmph. I can only raise my eyebrows now, and hope that my old boss and his family are doing well in...Florida. The first place I'd move. No really, I wish them well. But this leaves me in stinky position of having to find one.

For hours I have toiled over my resumé and cover letter. Being the good designer that I am, I even made the matching envelopes. My portfolio is online keeping me in with the cyber-cool designer crowd. I definitely have gone all out, and now is the dreaded waiting period where either employers begin to scramble for me, or just stuff me into a file cabinet. If the latter comes to fruition then it's back to square one, and more envelope cramming for me.

Oh, how I hate the wait.

No way man, the wait is the best part, all due respect to Carly Simon. You'll miss this free time when it's gone...and I'm sure it'll go soon.

Don't fear. Apparently, my sarcasm about moving to Florida wasn't clear enough. I've been there long enough to know better!

Well, if you did the design for this site, I'd hire you. Of course, I have nothing to hire you for, I'm just saying. I would, you know, if I did.
