I hate looking for a job. It's probably my least-favorite thing ever. Even more than standing in line at the DMV, or being stuck in traffic when I'm already late. There should be something in place that makes the whole process less maddening. I truly loathe looking for a new job. I think it's actually the only thing I literally hate.
I just don't understand why I get so palm-sweatingly, mind-blankingly moronic when it comes to the interview process.
"Where do you want to be in five years?"
"Anyplace where my kneecaps are!"
Ever since I told an attractive woman about the existence of my kneecaps (age 19) in an attempt to begin flirting with her, the whole subject of my kneecaps has been a go-to for me to convey nervousness.
In any event, as I've previously stated (and will most likely say again), I loathe job-hunting. The whole process of filling out an application is both tedious and mind-numbing. I think that's what hell is. The absolute worst is if you don't get hired by the first place you apply to, for then you have to fill out another application.
Similarly obnoxious is ensuring that my resume is up to date. It's not as bad as filling out an application, however, and is my preferred choice. Have an option for me to send you my resume? Kick ass, I'll do that over an application any day.
I am currently looking for a second job, because, as I said yesterday, I'm looking to move to Arizona, and I want to have as much money in the bank as I can, so I have a nice buffer. I want to be able to get to know my surroundings down there before I begin the soul-crushing experience of job-hunting in the blazing sun.
