The search plods on
Just a little update on the job search:

I am plodding along, spending at least three or four hours a day searching for jobs and applying for some of them. I got word today that I have been approved for unemployment, but it may be up to three weeks before I see any of it. Knowing how the job search process works, I don't imagine I will be getting any calls or emails until mid- or late August. It'll happen, but filling the long, boring days until then can be a challenge.

There are decent jobs out there, with decent pay; however, I found a posting on Craig's List that was so insulting and maddening I just had to share it with you all.

It is for an Executive Administrative position, essentially a glorified secretarial job. A four-year degree is required. Five years of prior experience is required. No vacation or benefits until you have been employed there for a full year. Professional dress is required. Some overtime and weekends are required. All this and a "can-do" attitude are prerequisites for this position.

Your salary? Nine fucking dollars an hour. I realize this is a recession, and that right now the upper hand belongs to the employers, but that will change. Do you brain-damaged hiring managers honestly think the poor soul who takes that position will stay there for any period of time if they can help it?!

Heaven help me if I have to lower myself so low as to take a professional position for burger-flipping money. o(:oP

"I found a posting on Craig's List"

That explained everything that came after it.

Actually, believe it or not, I have found some good postings there; in fact, I found my last job there.

Was this a job of the 'rim' or 'blow' variety? ^.^

Heh...my last job? It was actually a pretty decent one, just at a company that could not keep up with the toilet bowl economy. :P

Serves me right for trying to make a Craigslist joke.
