Searching for a job is such a pain in the... well, you know.
I'm in the unenviable position of being supremely qualified for a job I don't really want to do any longer (EMS), and modestly qualified but not "officially certified" for the job I do want (IT stuff).
It's looking more and more as if I'll have to go back to school, knock out a few certifications in computer stuff, before I'll be attractive to an employer. Even then, East Central Indiana isn't exactly a hot bed of technological development, so I don't have any promise of a job. Add in the current economy (no, Mr. President, it ISN'T getting any better), and I'm quite concerned.
In related news, the past two weeks of being a house husband have been nice, insofar as I've been able to do a lot of "Honey-Do" items, stay ahead of the laundry (not easy with two pre-teen daughters), and keep the house clean.
On the positive side, other than the above, we have a good supply of food: Half a pig and a quarter cow in the freezer along with a couple chickens, canned veggies galore, bags of beans and rice and flour and such, and a decent stash of pesos in the bank. We'll have to tighten down the purse strings if I don't find something soon, but we'll make it.
Worst case scenario, I get a job at the local Mega Home Improvement Warehouse store while doing a few things to get my paramedic certification back, and I return to my roots on the ambulance. I was pretty decent at it once, from what they tell me.
Still, I really would prefer I find a job in Information Tech. If anyone has leads in the area (Muncie and surrounding vicinity), drop me a line?
