WERQ!

Hi, y'all!

Sorry it's been a while, but I've been job searching and that has tied up a lot of my time. Anyone else out there looking for work? Whether you want something better than you've got or whether you'll take anything if you could get it (I'm somewhere in between), job hunting is the nads. IT SUCKS.

In my case, as in many others, it's fairly easy to find part-time or temporary full-time work, but it's difficult to find permanent full-time work. 

Where my job search is a bit different is that I am especially prepared to work in academia, and there is  a specific audience to prepare for. There is also generally a lengthy application process consisting of several rounds of submitting materials and several interviews. At some point, I can't not think of RuPaul's Drag Race. Which is good, because it cheers me up.

Get ready to lip sync... for your life! Good luck, ...


Good luck to anyone else out there who's looking for a new career! Work it out, hun!
