I didn't get the job in Michigan, but there's another opening coming up at the same place, and I might be in the running for that job.

No job yet.

"Dances with Sheep"

I've been re-reading Haruki Murakami novels, thinking I'll go live in the Rocky Mountains, a cross between the hermit Ryokan and the SheepMan.

I'm going to read Plato's Symposium and then I'll make believe that I'm having a conference of stuffed toys in my cramped little bedroom.

12.5 months unemployed.

I'm a monkey in a box, monkey in a cardboard box.

Cool. I have an job interview on Tuesday. Cross your fingers!

I wish I could go to the Ottawa Linux Symposium... *sigh*

OK. A handful of potential jobs have come and gone. No real interviews, just screening interviews by recruiters. I have been unemployed for a whole year now.

Tomorrow I have an initial, preliminary phone interview for a job. Yeah!

I am still looking for a job. It has been over ten months now. I am a UNIX/Linux, object-oriented Perl 5, SQL (Oracle or MySQL), CGI kinda person with many other interests. -- ebizo

A very bad week. No calls or emails about job opportunities. No positive responses to my enquiries. Several emails with bad news.

My wonderful life it ain't.

Last week was a good week for hits on my resume and close fits in terms of my job experience. This week is slow. I doubt any of the companies to which I have applied lately, or even any of the companies that have contacted me in the past fortnight will ever hire me. That's just the way it is. I am awful at marketing myself.

I also don't do well in situations where (potential) coworkers prefer to avoid all forms of contact or communication.

Maybe I can get a job that rolls together all my professional work in web applications development, a BA in linguistics, and an almost-completed master's degree in the computer (information retrieval) side of library science?

(I now realize that I should edit at a decent hour the entries I write at 4am.)
