I started this blog when, for the first time since I was fifteen and legal to work, I was out of a job. With the job market saturated with "in transition" workers, I found it important to stand out. I suppose that's what I tried to imply with the title of this blog. Clever, no?
I planned to document each step of my journey towards gainful employment here, and thankfully, that didn't take very long. Though my jobless state was brief, I hope my original posts can serve as a primer for what to do (and what not to do) when thrown back on the market.
Now that I've found a job again I plan to continue blogging. I realize there are jobs and companies that stand out too! There are independent, upstart, and small companies everywhere that thumb their noses at conglomocorps. (See how I brought the thumb back around? I'm really too clever for my own good.) So, I guess my aim now is to impress upon you that there is hope; working doesn't have to make you feel like a mindless drone. I type all of this just one week after starting my job, so why don't we explore together how long this feeling lasts?
