Careening Counsel

I meant to make an entry last night.

Unfortunately, it took an hour or so to make another new resume in Monster.com. Every time I tried to make some kind of edit to it I would get some kind of crazy error, so I would have had to reload the page, go backward or forward and once even closed the browser then signed in again.

But I guess Monster.com is one of the bigger job site to post resumes and such.

In that time, though, I had a pretty good IM chat with someone from college that I haven't seen in years. He offered to keep an eye out for editorial assistant, copy writing or literary agent assistant jobs for me. Thanks, old college acquaintence!

And I have nothing against people keeping their eye out for me, either.

The fiancee and I also had our first couples counselling appointment straight out of work. We decided to do it as something of a maintenance issue and also because of the stress of moving, job searching, etc.

Not much to say about it. We mostly talked about ourselves, listed some of our complaints about ourselves and stylistic differences. The two of us heard it all before, so there wasn't any tension or surprises or anything.

It would be nice if we could find some quick fixes, though, but I doubt a good productive one will present itself. . .ever.

Now to get back to work.

Monster.com is one ass-ugly beast.

All I ever got from it was a bunch of error messages and job offers to be a telemarketer

I got that stuff, but I also had two companies, one an architectual company that wanted to see if I would work in the production dept. and a small design company that wanted to see if I belonged as their receptionist/salesperson.

Sadly, though, I didn't fit their bills.

Thankfully, I have more qualifications and confidence nowadays.
