The Employee is a Lonely Hunter

Filed under: Boring, Chicago — sashyjane @ 4:02 pm

I have had a devil of a time finding a job! It would probably be easier for me to get hired as an ex-con or high school dropout than as a college graduate with 5 years of non-managerial experience. The jobs that require experience are going to those who have 10 or more years experience and the jobs that require no experience are going to those without college degrees because they’re cheaper to hire. I’m seriously considering setting up shop on a street corner.

One glimmer of hope – I had a very positive interview with a temp agency this morning. Fingers crossed that they’ll send me on a job soon.  I sure would hate to spend my days digging through Clark Street trash cans and pushing a grocery cart down the sidewalk.

I’ve also applied for a number of dog walking/sitting jobs and various and sundry waitressing and retail positions.  If you have any other suggestions for where I can find work in Chicago (without a car) I’d LOVE to hear them! In the meantime, I’ll continue to survive on gruel and rusty tap water. :)

What a professional!
