Well, I Am Now Officially Unemployed

Photobucket
It finally happened– as of today I have officially joined the ranks of the nation's unemployed.

The image above is a pretty good approximation of me right now as I sit wondering what in the name of Zeus' Mighty Nose Hair I'm going to do next.

Fortunately (I guess), this didn't come as a surprise. I've known it was going to happen for quite some time. I've been sending out resumes, filling out applications and trying to network with the handful of people I know around town, but there just isn't anything out there right now.

Obviously I would prefer a job in the advertising/marketing field, but I'm a realist; I may have to do something else for a while until things improve.

If anyone needs a creative graphic designer or illustrator with twenty years of experience, don't hesitate to call me!

In the meantime I will be working on my new country & western song, titled "Pink Slip for Christmas."

UPDATE: I am now officially employed again!

  5. @Bill and Mykal:
    Thanks for the words of encouragement. Hopefully I can post a "I Am Now EMPLOYED" entry soon.

    @Brad:
    I hope something better comes along soon. I'm trying to remain positive, but it's hard. It's brutal out there right now.

    I did manage to snag a part time job, but it's a dollar over minimum wage and seasonal, so in all likelihood I will be shown the door after the holidays. So it's not really anything to get excited about. Maybe if I do a good job they'll decide to keep me on.

    Thanks, but Iceland would be a hell of a commute.
