Today is day 5 of the job hunt, and let me tell you, it is not going well. I've applied for about 15+ positions, and not one call back yet.
It's difficult, because I'm not sure what I want to do, and even if I knew, I don't have any experience in anything relevant, so I couldn't get the job. At this point, I just want to work, so I don't have to worry about paying February's rent, and my growing Visa bill.
Why didn't someone tell me that a Bachelor of Arts degree in English was useless? Why? Why? Why?
My mom says that a degree is something that no one can take away from you, and that's part of its value. I don't think I could pay someone to take this one away, because there's just no demand.
Maybe I should start thinking about doing something unconventional. Maybe start my own business or something. Maybe, dare I say it, go back to school and get a useful credential. No, I'm not quite that desperate yet.
Maybe I should just start picking out my cardboard box. I hate job searching, and I don't think that job searching likes me much either.
I just spend and hour and a half searching monster.ca and workopolis for jobs, and I applied for a few. I don't think I'll have much luck though.
I'm not even sure I want any of the jobs I applied for. I just want to go and hide where there is no phone, so I can't get any calls, and just knit all day forever.
I guess I'm like a lot of people...Nothing comes easily for me, and every day is a constant struggle.
