    Oh I certainly know the difficult job search game. Try finding entry level Architecture work. I'm thinking about taking on friends as clients to design fictional houses for them to add to my portfolio :p

    Might not be a bad idea blem, so long as the bosses or hiring people don't dig too deep. :p I'm trying to find entry level electrical work. I rather avoid unions and big contractors, I actually like working for local organizations, like my towns school district. But they gave the energy management job to someone that's been there for longer so screw me right.... -.- they also are opening an overnight security position or two, and I like to work night shifts anyways because I am able to plan my days better for some reason.... Haha

    What language penguin?

    Hello everybody ... glad to be back.

    Jobhunt ... we Germans call it the Jobquest ... is what kept me away from here in the last months. It is a pain.

    Job-quest sounds a lot more pleasant than job-hunt. Has an RP element to it. ;) Either way, best of luck with that,

    Sometimes I'm glad I retreated into the soft, economy-ignorant cocoon of higher academia.

    I get it. Spent a full year unemployed after I graduated. And then I didn't even end up in the field I went to school for :p. But hey, the healthcare industry is booming right now with all the Affordable Care Act changes occurring and I had to take what I could get. (Disclaimer: No political comments are being being made either for or against the Affordable Care Act)

    On the flip side, it's a nice object lesson in the importance of a lot of modern computer science - server capacity, server coding, distributed server architecture...

    Yes that's what obamacare is though I doubt he wrote it himself. Much less read it when he signed it. Now a large portion of the workforce are getting screwed by it. Couldn't afford healthcare before, now I'm getting fined because I can't. And its increasing yearly. Yayyyyyyyyyy I hate politics.

    Congrats to our jobfinders. Oh how I hated the job hunt. It is such a good breeding ground for self-doubt and frustration. When you got a job it seems surreal. Well a job brings it's own challenges of course ... I hate the whole human ressource aspect of my work ... but my Boss is handing me more and more reaponsibility in that area.

    Congratulations, Cassie!! :)

    Fins, is your Boss also handing you commensurate pay with those additional responsibilities?

    Heavy, don't give up the search. It took me literally a year to find a job and I took a massive pay-cut ( avoid doing that if at all possible). Many other of our members are still on the job hunt as well, don't be discouraged. Keep at it, broaden your search parameters, you'll get something as long as you keep trying.

    I really want this night security job, I don't know why but I just manage my time better when I am up all night and sleeping in the mornings.

    And thank you for the encouragement, congratulations to those of you who have found success in your search. [:D]
