Jobs are for the jobless...right?


I am almost convinced that I've done something in a past life, which altered my ability to get and keep a job I enjoy. Each interview confirms that college is not for everyone. I know that as adults, our jobs/careers will change more than twice. To me, graduating college and entering the workforce is a catch 22!!! You study in a certain area for four or more years, only to graduate and be told you don't have enough experience. Is it not understood in the 'real working world' there's no way to be a full time student and gain work experience at the same time. 'What is it you really want to do', should be a million dollar question. If many of us were doing what we really wanted to do, our employers would have to find new employees. I guess my whole idea of the job market/job search is up in the air!!! Do I accept a job I have no interest in or remain jobless and hold out for something I'm more interested in? I think the whole job/career area is where I have my greatest issues. If I could only live in K's world I'd create the perfect job, with the perfect hours, and the perfect benefit plan!!! Who knows how this will pan out over the following two weeks, I'll be sure to keep you informed!!!

Don't feel bad! I'm STILL trying to find what it is that I reeeeally want to do!

I guess it depends on your finances with whether you can hold out or just take something that's offered. I CAN say this, when I was working a job that I HATED,it wore on me physically and emotionally. I was stressed and having migraines at least 3-4 times a week. I would sometimes have to go to the ER to get a shot because they were soooo bad! I quit the job-and have only about four or five in six months!!! But then again, my pockets took a hit. I'm not sure if there's a perfect job for me though.....I'd rather be on the beach somewhere writing and listening to music w/hubby. LOL

Keep the faith because God's got it all under control...but remember, be careful what you ask for because you may very well get JUST THAT! So for all these great incentives K's world would have, you may need to develop your strategy in case that request is answered.........
