The Job Search - Part Four


Another week of disappointment as I continue my streak of unemployment. Luckily, the holidays came, so I got a short week of applying for jobs. Yes, I know I don't have a job, so the holidays really shouldn't stop my job hunting, but employers do have holidays and they really don't post many jobs over a holiday weekend. All in all it was a slow week, but let's review things from last week.

Jobs I Applied For:
Monday
Texas Stars – Account Executive
Evolutionary Enterprises – Registration Representative
Philadelphia Flyers – Sales Associate
University of Texas at San Antonio – Account Executive
Sacramento River Cats – Coordinator, Public Relations & Baseball Operations
Louisiana Tech – Ticket Sales Consultant

Tuesday
Providence Bruins – Manager of Sponsorship Services
Superior Techincal Resources – Marketing Communications Specialist
Medix Staffing Solutions – Customer Service Representative
Fishman Public Relations – Media Relations Specialist
San Diego Padres – Season Ticket Account Specialist
Mentor Network – Program Coordinator
Ebix – Client Service Analyst

Wednesday
Delmarva Shorebirds – Business Development Executive
Bridgepoint Education – Student Services Coordinator
Ashford University – Campus Admissions Counselor

Best Job: University of Texas at San Antonio - Account Executive
San Antonio is supposed to be a pretty cool town. Plus it gives me an in with co-eds. Not only will I be the best looking person down there, but I'll also be employed. I've heard that chicks dig employment.

Most Hilarious Job: Mentor Network - Program Coordinator
Who would be better to be a mentor than a person like me? My programs will include lessons on pro wrestling, MMA, and picking up chicks. So yeah, I can't imagine I won't get this job.


Best Story - Durpee Doo
So my confidence has been rising with this job search as I have had some good interviews, and my natural arrogance always makes me feel better than I probably should. This past week, I had a friend of a friend with an in at an employment agency, but I told him to wait off because I was close on a couple job opportunities. Within two hours, both of those opportunities had vanished into thin air. So, yeah, I'm going to talk to him about looking into that for me.

So not much this week. Hopefully something weird happens this week, so I have a more exciting update. Actually, maybe I should hope for a job happening, since that would probably be better. Shit, who am I kidding? I'd way rather get a good story out of this.

P.S. I don't have much, so here's an article about a pharmacist in a small town in Colorado. I know that doesn't sound interesting, but it's a pretty damn good story.
