Bees– thanks for your support!
I got a job. I’m a host at a restaurant (again). Yay!
I’m continuing to search for my science-y job, but at least I’ve got something now.
In this economy, it makes so much difference!
Any other job seekers out there, or people with a job that’s not completely what they want but they’re staying because of the economy?
So… I’ll be on the bee a little less now. Good thing I addressed all my invites already!
Thanks bees. 😀

I have experience in high school teaching, science research, science museums, and (very little) medical assisting (no certification).
I’m applying for research, teaching, medical receptionist (to help transition to medicine), policy with goverment and NGOs, hill staff, and museums.
I had a professional review my resume, and I’ve applied to over 200 jobs. I’m doing informational interviews and trying to network, but I’m new to the area.
In other hilarious news, I applied for only 3 restaurants. I got the job in 10 minutes of applying (in person).
@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: @amariem25: and @DesireeAnne: Thank you!

@ellabee – if you want to do research again the first thing you should do is read the literature and figure out what field you are interested in. Then find out who works in that field in your city and what institution they are at. Then look at all of the publications from that person and really get to know what they are working on. Email them and let them know you are interested in their work, that you have these lab skills to offer, and ask if they are looking for any technicians or research personnel.
Most of the people who get hired in labs at my institution were hired by word of mouth. The jobs they got weren’t even posted online yet.

How ironic! I went for an interview last week for a front desk job at a fancy hotel in a near by town. Although all the front desk positions had already been filled, they loved me so much they offered me a job as a hostess in their restaurant. Even though it isn’t what I wanted, I accepted also. I’m lucky to be given a job offer!
Any hostess tips? They would be greatly appreciated!

I’m a substitute teacher I don’t particularly like it, though it depends on which school i’m at. I left my full time job last Summer as I knew it wasn’t what I wanted and I hated it, foolish to an extent but I feel much better, do not miss the marking etc and I love having my evenings and weekends back.

I do office work, but in two weeks my job will be 65 miles one way from my house. Driving 130 miles a day isn’t something I’m looking forward to, but you gotta do what ya’ gotta do!
