As you may recall, I am currently unemployed. I lost my job on February 14th this year. In the past 10 weeks I have sent my resume out 54 times. Out of those 54 resumes I have had 2 interviews. Just two. I am not a math wiz or anything, but that isn’t much. I have no amazing skills and my resume reads like something a 24 year old would have. Since graduating college I haven’t had a job for more than 3 years. This last job I wanted to keep for a really long time. But it wasn’t meant to be.
So I’m on the hunt again. But money is getting low and I am starting to feel the pings of desperation. I am looking for an administrative position. I like data entry, filing, copying and the such. Not exciting, takes no skills, but I enjoy it. Unfortunately I fear that all other resumes look like mine. I am really much better in person. Outgoing, laid back, personable. So, I got myself a pimp last week.
I don’t mean a gold chain, velour wearing pimp. I mean I signed up with a staffing agency. I noticed that many jobs on monster, indeed and career builder were going through staffing agencies. I didn’t contact any, just applied for a job one had up. They contacted me and I signed up with them. But all businesses don’t go through the same place, right? Nope. So I signed up with another pimp. Well, if two would be advocating for me, selling me on the business market, it doesn’t hurt to contact three does it? Nah! So I emailed a third staffing agency yesterday.
I am still looking for myself. But I need help. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with working at Taco Bell or Wal-Mart, I don’t want to do that if I don’t have too. I know my luck, I would get trained, then get my dream job and quit. I don’t like being that person.
So wish me luck, and hope that the pimps can do their jobs well!
