The Search Is On

It's offical I am only 21 days from taking my last final! Thats right only three weeks!!! But who is counting? Certainly not me :D I am beyond excited and so ready to have that pretty little piece of paper in my hot little hands. I'm mean come on who doesn't want a very expensive piece of paper which basically says the person who has earned it is really good at following directions?

So being this close to graduating what have I been up to you ask? Well basically I have been looking for a job that will actually use my degree. With the job market the way it is this is WAY harder than it should be. I know... I know... I'll pause here while you collect yourself from the shock of that statements. So weird and radom isn't it? This month alone I  have sent out almost 30 applications. Yes thats right 3 - 0!!!

I'm pretty sure my cover letter has been rewritten more times than I can count. Not to mention all the times that I have changed my objective statement on my resume. I understand that this is all part of the "game" as they call it, but COME ON! There has to be a way to make this easier and more efficent. Don't even get me started on the whole online application process! To me it's sad that so many corporations make their interviewing decisions on whether or not someone's resume has the right words on it is so it gets past the software.

To be honest this has been one of the most depressing things I have ever done. It's back to that age old issue of you have to have experience to get the job but if you don't get a job you don't have the experience. UGH!!!!!!! It's beyond frustrating! I mean come on people I'm applying for jobs that you only have to have a high school degree for and I have a college education. I'm pretty sure I can do acount recievable work for a hospital! They do make you take accounting and finance classes in BUSINESS SCHOOL. I'm just saying!

In all seriouness I know God has a plan for me and he is leading me down the road that he has planed out for me. I have to trust in his plan, trust that I will find a job that will allow me to serve him and to serve the community I live in, and trust that in the end it will all work out. For now I will continue doing what I have been doing, praying and sending out as many application as possible each day. If you are a praying person prayers would be much appreciated!

Until next time...
