A note on my job hunt.

I thought I would fill you in on my job hunt with some interesting statistics.

Number of jobs applied for: 70
Number of follow up pre-interviews: 4 (5.7%)
Number of interviews: 2 (2.9%)
Number of hires: 0 (0% in case you were wondering)

Number of temp agencies attempted to register with: 4
Number of temp agencies actually registered with: 2
Number of temp jobs they've contracted me for: 0

I even made a quick chart of the type of jobs I applied for (for the ones that I remember what they were):

administrative assistant16
customer service representative12
retail sales5
shipping & receiving4
data entry3
graphic design1

The "et cetera" section includes these jobs: graffiti removal; photographer's assistant; movie blogger; SAT instructor; box office sales; kennel attendant; assisted living weekend manager.

Wish me luck.

Keep plugging. Maybe there will be a call for extras for a movie or something. Maybe there will be a job open up at school. My fingers are crossed.

this is ridiculous! your resume must have a giant picture of a vagina drawn on it somewhere or something. or its that attractive thing we were talking about earlier today.

I think that one is a pyramid scheme of some kind, but a scheme you seem qualified for!

this one is probably your best bet.

this youre actually qualified for and it seems rather sweet

you could do this, too, but dear god the pay in portland is outlandishly low

how to write a cover letter

you know, godspeed and whatnot.
