I think if I keep working at it
Lately I have been working at finding a job. I have three part-time jobs but it would be better to have one job with enough money to either receive benefits or be able to pay for health care. Right now I can’t afford my health care and its extremely cheap for health care. On top of that I wouldn’t be able to afford rent on my own, tuition debt and any repairs on my car because lets face it… its had a hard knock life. So I’m on the job hunt for a creative leadership position in the arts or close enough to it to be happy. I would love a job that was involved with the community its in or a gallery space I could help run. I don’t feel these are lofty expectations but they are with the recession. In the mean time some of the places that I have come into contact with that are quite amazing and deserve some recognition for everything they are doing for the community.
There is still a sizable list of places I haven’t checked out in the area that I still plan to contact but I recently joined Monster.com and LinkedIn which I’m hoping will help the search. I’ve sent out a few resumes and applied to a handful of jobs. I must be being picky because I’m not finding what I was hoping for.
