Well then...

So, let's see...what has happened since my last post...
Have been turned down for three jobs.
Have been told at my current job that they "don't have anything" for me to do after graduation.
Don't know how I'm going to pay my bills for the next two months.
Looking forward to my girls-night-out this Saturday.
Only have one homework assignment and short paper for my independent study plus two finals before,
So...anyone know anyone that can put me in touch with someone who can give me a job?

Crunch time

Ok, so I have gone into full "must. get. job. soon." mode. I have submitted for four jobs at the Gates Foundation, three at PATH, one at Volt Employment Agency (which I THINK is for the Gates Foundation) and one at Impact Capital. The reality is, this process can take some time, and I really don't have the money saved up right now to be able to survive without a paycheck for more than a couple weeks (the hazards of being a student for the past several years).
It is so very scary looking for a job right now. One, the economy is not exactly booming, and two, I haven't been through a job interview in almost four years! Yikes!
If anyone knows any open positions, or knows someone who knows of open positions, that are at a non-profit organization, preferably with a global focus, feel free to pass the information along!

The Leap

So....I've taken the leap. I've put my application in for a position at the Gates Foundation.
Even though people keep stressing how difficult it is to get a job there right now, I am going to remain positive darnit!

I WILL get a job there!

It is PERFECT for me!

Damn I'm scared...
