Me & My Muse – Day 1358: Back to the Grind…

Having worked my shift already, I am now at home, trying to find a business that will hire me.

The Administrative Assistant position at Dow that I tried to get assistance on is already filled.  Having been just listed on Friday, I can’t find it now.

Kelly Services is giving me the cold shoulder.  Should I try to apply for another job there?  Chances are the candidate software will sort me to the bottom of the stack, since I don’t possess the ideal qualities that they are looking for.  I mean, let’s get realistic.  How many candidates are going to match 100% of the criteria?  Most of the matches probably fall within the 80-90% range.

All this goes back to something that i have heard before.  A person may not have the skills, but they may have the stronger desire.  The person with that desire would be driven enough to learn those skills.  In this world, all we need is to be given a chance.  But unfortunately, those chances don’t come up very often.

Why am I still typing this?  I need to get back to looking for work.  I know that realistically not everyone can be given that chance at the same time, but my ship is overdue to arrive.

So I am standing here at the port, waiting in a suit and tie.  And my list of interview questions, of course.

So let’s talk.  Make me an offer that I can’t refuse.


Muse:  I don’t think it works that way.

Of course it doesn’t.  This is the real world, right?

Muse:  Yes.  I’m sure that someone will give you a chance.  You just need to be patient.

It’s not all that easy.  I just need some more leads.

Muse:  I’ll leave you to finding them.  I hope that you find something soon!

*Muse vanishes in a beam of light*

I hope that I do too.  There are some new things that I definitely need to purchase.  A new car (my old one isn’t going to last forever and could give out anyday).  My own apartment (if given a decent paying job, I would definitely like to have my own place.  It’s getting crowded having me, my brother and my sister all living at my parent’s place!)

Time to end this and continue looking.  My friend will be over soon and I want to be done by then.

Today’s high is going to be 56 degrees and the silver lining is my friend coming over later.

To those of you who like unwinding with friends, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Kyle is overdue for a new job.  He needs that new chapter to begin.  Can anyone help start it?
