- I’ve been meaning to listen to this song since I heard about the new series. I grew up in the 70s, so this song takes me back. . . .
- I like this song. Who doesn’t?
Okay, yes, I’m joking about taking over Lexmark. But the hoops one has to jump through are frustrating. Unexpected group interviews. Online applications that don’t inform you you’re not qualified until you’ve wasted 20 minutes of your time answering questions that no human might ever read. Today, when applying for the HR job at FCPS, I had to fill out an administrator survey, administered by Gallop. Administrator as in school principal. Yet the job has nothing to do with being a school principal.
It’s a constant tension for me, really. Often I apply for jobs I don’t really want, simply because I know the day might realistically come when I really, really need to be working and am not. I question why others seemingly work in fields they’re passionate about, yet I could very likely end up answering somebody’s phone for money [can’t his wife do that?]. And sometimes I wish I’d hung in there as an 18 year old Interior Design major, despite the fact that I did horrible in drafting class. I question why I changed college majors 2 times. I wonder if I could make a decent income teaching piano lessons (most likely not). I consider becoming a hand model (yes, again, I’m joking). I think about one of my female business professors and wonder [what would Nancy do?] in my situation. I question how as a full time working mom we’ll handle juggling the schedules of 2 kids that attend magnet schools, not the close by neighborhood variety. And maybe worst of all, I go to work and wonder why such an important curriculum might not be taught anymore because we’ve lost our federal grant. check out OUR blog
So, like I said before, I continue the hunt. Please forgive me for [almost] ranting. Perhaps I’ll listen to Hawaii Five-0 again and feel better. The beat goes on. .
