The Job Hunt With No End In Sight

I spend hours each day on the computer. Sometimes I'm doing fun stuff like playing poker or The Sims 3.

That's not always the case though. Usually, I'm applying for jobs.

This is something that is very frustrating. I was optimistic that I would have a job by now. But that is not the reality of my world.

I'm still looking for a job. And I'm also looking up info for grad school. I'm going to get a Master's degree from somebody at some point.

But the job application process is never-ending.

My favorite job sites are the ones where you spend about 20 minutes putting in all the details and information.

Once you spend that time, you're good. After that you click "apply" and it fills in all the information.

I loathe the sites where I have to put that information in over and over again.

The biggest issue is trying to fill out these applications during the day. My brother is an internet hog.

I'm not sure how he's hogging all the bandwidth. Maybe he's downloading movies. Maybe it's that evil ass iPad.

I'm always willing to blame Apple/Mac, but the point is, it's really difficult to get anything done during the day.

Even Google takes three tries to load up. So instead of applying for 15-45 jobs in one afternoon, it's more like 1 1/2. Seriously, it's frustrating.

So I've taken to applying for jobs in the evening. Since he's left the house, I've done upwards of 30 applications. That's good for one day.

I may actually reach my goal of job applications for this week. And all I had to do was switch my entire schedule around.

Now if only someone will want to interview me instead of sending a "thanks but no thanks" e-mail.

2 New Hypotheses:

I haven't even bothered logging on to the job sites anymore, it's just so frustrating. I'm thankful that I do have a job-two jobs actually-though neither one is something I want/can do long term.


I wish I had a job. Taking a break from job hunting would make sense if I had a source of income.

But I totally get how you would want to take a break because it is so frustrating.

Sunday is becoming one of my favorite days because I never get "thanks but no thanks e-mails."
