I dropped off my CV at some places in the local mall today. It was kind of a downer, I didn’t go to 4 5 6 years of college to ring a register, but 3 classes a week doesn’t make a proper paycheck. I decided to focus on the bright side of a simple job that won’t spill over into my free time, and not on putting on ridiculous dress code clothes to fulfill zany requests from corporate and customers. One place wanted me to handcopy my resume onto their official application (see previous re: “zany requests from corporate”) I started to laugh when I got to the references section, because does someone think I want a retail job badly enough to lie about it?
Later on today I had an interview, well, more of a meeting with a possible employer for some SEO and content writing work. Kind of what I’ve been doing here and there, but longer term and more regular work. They had a map of Middle Earth and a RENT poster on the office walls. Things are looking up!
