    Job Hunting?

    I was curious how other people are doing with job hunting if they're looking for a job. I heard job hunting is a job in and of itself, and I could see why. I decided to step it up and today I applied for 26 jobs and it took about 6-7 hours to do. I'm really hoping it pays off.

    I also don't like online/computerized job applications if only because of how tedious the questionnaires are. There was one of them that was 12 pages long, and had about 10-15 questions per page, and a lot of them were very redundant or asked something that was just about the same.

    So how's job hunting going on your guy's part?

    Applied to a few university work-study jobs.

    Nothing back yet.

    Ill be eligible for the class I want to study in 2014, so meanwhile I'm on social welfare. I already think I get too much monies (holy shit 934$/month), so I don't need a job. But if I did, I could just go anywhere and get a job right away.

    Every single place is practically trying to BUY workers, the complete opposite of the economic situation in the US.

    I've been job hunting since late 2009 when I left high school.
    Not a single callback. I've done every method I can and taken the advice and critique of my parents and elders. I don't know how my friends have jobs and I don't. D:

    I supposedly heard some of it is having the right connections which I have a few now. Hopefully that helps.

    Good luck! D:

    Was it Michael's with that horribly long questionnaire? They're really awful ;;

    I've been trying to get a job, but I'm also trying to get my etsy shop off the ground. It seems to be working well enough, I just got a commission for some pony custom keychains so that's an extra $30 to go to more shop stuff, but other than that I haven't been able to get anywhere unless I had a friend working there already. 8(

    That's how I got my first job too. I heard that's how you get more jobs, but I can at least write down some things on my resume like college.

    I'm curious to see your comics. You should post them.
    Look at all the fun we're having.
