You can't look forward to anything with dread.
Anticipate? Yes. But not look forward to? No.
So it was when I opened up job search sites today with hope I've written about: jobs will open up with the New Year.
Hope is wonderful -- until it smacks you upside the head.
Today, I applied for a dozen jobs around the country and here in my adopted city of Bloomington. They ranged from editor jobs to restaurant management to some titles I didn't understand. Change agent? Transformational analyst?
Cool. If some company is willing to pay me once again, I am willing to answer to just about anything.
As awesome as it is to have the internet for a job search, I remain troubled that I can apply for a number of jobs without any human contact.
Hope 1; dread 0.
Peace and hope unto you my brothers and sisters.
