Job Hunting

I am currently looking for a (good, engaging, well-paying, interesting) job.

My friend Katherine's sister told her that she applied to nearly 100 jobs before she found the one that was perfect for her. 100 jobs (100!). Needless to say, we have both decided to crack down a little more with this job hunting business.

Luckily the hunt isn't entirely without satisfaction. I have discovered that secretly, it is highly satisfying to write the "MSW" behind my name. My cover letters look something like this:

"Dear so-and-so,

I am awesome. Blah, blah, blah, blah...

Oh, and did I mention that I was awesome? Blah, blah, blah...


Metta Prieto, MSW"

*Sigh* I just love that ending.

I totally believe in fortune cookies. Follow the wisdom of the cookie, Metta!

Let's see... "good, engaging, well-paying, interesting"... Sometimes they are mutually exclusive (!!)
