I realize I've been kicking myself in the ass a lot lately..I suppose it's an easy thing to do when the job market where you live has no pulse whatsoever.
Last week I had an interview with a local insurance company for a sales position. I was turned down, of course because I don't have a driver's license. You'd think I'd be really upset about it, but after being turned down so many times, it's something I come to expect with any interview, because these days, despite my field supposedly being #1, there are zero paying jobs to be had.
On the other hand, I went back to my GIS position as a volunteer. To be honest, I feel this is a hell of a lot more constructive than trying to search the proverbial zombie job market for a faint pulse.
One of my supervisors there drove me to the DMV so I can get my permit back and try driving again, and the head of the department is looking for the budget to hire me as a full time worker (So I heard, anyway), so I figure that the best thing I can do is simply show them they'll find no better worker, driver's license or not. Either way, I'm planning on getting a full license within the month. Whether this will happen or not is anyone's guess, but based on my first time back behind the wheel, it looks promising.
I'm still not counting on a paying job though, and while my family accepts that, I find it incredibly difficult to do so. In any case, I will keep trying, fruitless as the effort feels sometimes.
See you around,
