oh God finding a job is so hard!

I'm helping my girlfriend hunt for a job. She just graduated college with a meteorology degree, and currently works at New York And Company (a woman's clothing store) for like, 12 hours a week. I feel bad for her. We've looked like, everywhere online. Job market is turrible, ESPECIALLY for an aspiring TV meteorologist with no experience.




So, how are you jerks getting along? Anyone else in the job hunt like she is?

    I just graduated with a film degree, so I know the pain she's feeling.

    Luckily, I'm in LA, so hopefully something will turn up.

    My degree is more about being able to say I graduated from a university than anything that could help me get work I've been pretty lucky about getting music work since graduating. Got a stable church job that gives me a good amount for something that only takes up my morning on Sunday, continued with San Diego Opera as a member of their chorus and hope to make core next season, and have been given lead roles in lyric houses across the country. I also got to do a few concerts here and there and was recently asked if I would like to do an interview for the entertainment section of a paper

    I was asked by Penguin Incarnate but still plan to treat it seriously. Or will be not serious at all and people will laugh their butts off

    Guys, big huge secret massive inside tip here.

    YOU call THEM back.

    They have their pick of people. Do not wait for them to call you, because they won't.

    Be proactive.

    Think outside that box.

    So on and so fourth.

    The idea is to use weather as a "force multiplier" whatever the hell that means!

    But also if you are going to fly planes that are worth several billion dollars halfway across the earth then you'd better fucking know how the weather is going to be when you're going to be out of gasoline.
