Wow a year ago I was in the same spot

Why does it seem like deja vu? Last year at this exact time (apart it was in a different state) but I find so many familiarities. Finding that ideal job is so hard to come by or nearly impossible. People ask me what it is I want to do and I have found myself in this rut of saying anything that deals with business. Pathetic response I here it is, I want to be involved with Marketing! I worked with Brigham Young University's athletic program and ideally I would love to get back in that similar scene! Wish me luck I have a few other call backs to do and schedule some other interviews.

Finally a day of rest from what you might ask?

This past week has been great! Three interviews a day and nothing could be better, except for them telling me if I got the job! Working with four staffing agencies, OfficeTeam, Recruiting Connection, AppleOne, and Pearson & Associoates. This is what I would call my lucky four. I am also answering classified ads for the help wanted section from the Daily Herald and the Salt Lake Tribune. There are a few sites that I have used; Craigslist, and Then you have alumni listings from the good ol' Alma Mater (that website if any of you are wondering is

Job hunting...why do you have to do it?

I don't know what it is about job hunting that makes me so frustrated. How hard could it be to find a job? I live in an area where the unemployment rate is 2% and apparently that is a good thing. I am not the brightest person when it comes to figuring out why 2% actually means zero unemployment. They must have forgotten to teach me that in school. Apart from the actual job hunt, people ask me what I want to do with my life. Do I dare tell them what I really want to do? Because I actually did write out a list of my intersts and hobbies and they are so different! Travel agent, event planner, real estate agent (ideally for a corporate instead of residential), HR is good too, legal has its good points. You see by me writing this, I have no real direction except for getting my MBA in the next few years and hopefully having my own business. So really the MBA will play no role if I decide to go on my own. But the experience and the associations that you make with others in your situation is priceless. I have enjoyed the opportunities I have had like with BYU, Study abroad, the Olympics, working for the city of Park City...and so many more to come.

Here is a video of a song that is one of my favorite songs. Enjoy...
