Okay, I haven’t made a pit thread before, so I apologize if the whine-to-vitriol ratio is wrong. Just to get things started off on the right track: fuckballs crapsack.
I’ve been trying to find a job for the past eight months and I’ve got fuckall to show for it. I graduated from the University of Georgia this past May with my degree in Sociology (I know, I know – I really was interested in it, but damnation) and my hopes of finding a job I actually like are gone gone gone. I’ve been looking, like I said, pretty much full-time since last October. I have applied to over four hundred jobs. I have more damn cover letters than China has noodles.
I’m not picky, at least I don’t think so. The only factors I’m using to limit the scope of my search are: full time, salaried, and within commuting distance (read: within a one and a half hour drive from) my home. I cared at one point about what the actual job was, but no longer. I don’t give a shit, I’ll do anything. And I just plain can’t find a job. I’ve used Monster.com, HotJobs, the classifieds, made phone calls, gone out and just handed out resumes in person – I feel like there’s some secret that everyone else knows about how to find a job that I’m just missing out on.
Sorry – FUCK POOP RACIAL SLUR. That’ll hold it for a few more sentences.
Maybe I had a little bit of a sense of entitlement when I graduated, but that’s gone now. This job hunting is fucking god damn killing me, I have no ego left, and I’ve waded through so many motherfucking ads that I can’t figure out what’s legitimate and what isn’t anymore.
And you know what fucking pisses me off more than anything else? The monotony of it was getting to me, so I decided to keep a log of how much time I spend looking for a job. The average of the last three weeks: 65 hours a week. Monkey balls on a crap stick, I’m working more than full time not working.
Anyone else out there unemployed and having trouble getting into the workforce? Anyone have any advice? Anyone want to pile it on further? Applicants for that last slot should get in line – I’ve got myself booked for a few hours yet, and after that I’m going to go look at rejection letters some more. Maybe there’s a clue as to what I’m doing to be such a fuckup hidden in them.
And just to make sure: RAAAAAAGE ASS ASS ASS ASS TITTY ASS FUCK FUCK FUCK SHIT.
Edited to add: By the way, if you’re in the Duluth, Georgia area and you’re hiring, I promise I’m charming. Pleeeease?
