Job hunting

I think looking for a new job has to be one of my very least favorite things on earth. What a fucking pain in the ass. It's even worse being in a town I don't know with no friends to hook me up at their work. Fuck, I better get to it.

job hunting during the dotcom boom was rad. companies were growing so fast, and they were all spending their venture capital money like it was going out of style - if you had the skills, you could go in and demand just about anything. salary, options, bonuses, moving expenses, car lease, whatever; it was so fucking sweet.

but that was then. now, it definitely sucks. working for yourself is nice, cause you don't have to interview, but you do have to make pitches and proposals, and those don't always come through either.

I was kind of lucky and this job fell into my lap, but searching for a job after I graduated college really did fucking suck. I was beginning to get seriously frustrated and was thinking about settling for a retail job for a while until I found something in my field. I definately consider myself lucky.

If that was true I'd have a very satisfied smile on my face tonight.

Fuck, here it is 1 in the morning and I've got interviews first thing and I can't tear myself away from the ratfucking internet.....

That is my greatest fear. I never used to use the internet but I've stuck at home for 7 1/2 months with an injured back and neck. Now I'm on the dumbass computer every day going on couple of these boards to kill a couple of hours. I'm getting slowly hooked god dammit!

its funny when youre away from a computer for a week or two and see all the shit you missed when you get back you realize how addictive these things are

I gotta start looking for a job in Australia over the net so I can try to have something when I move there in January. Otherwise I'll be walking around all week til I find something there which will suck even more with no car or money.
