I don't know if I'm the only one here, but there may be many in the same boat.
I currently have a job that has a limited term of employment. Needless to say it will be over soon and I have been looking for a job for months now.
I've got a huge resume loaded with tons of diversified experience, and a Masters Degree to boot, and I find its almost impossible to obtain a job. It truly baffles me how difficult it is to even get an interview anymore. Although this is the case I'm also surprised that I see people get nice jobs in my fields simply because they know someone who knows someone that dated someone who knows someone else without the necessary education or experience needed for the job.
My question is when in the history of our society did knowing someone become more important than education or developed skills? It's incredible how much this doesn't make sense.
It also baffles me that when I apply for jobs that are next to minimum wage the prospective employer won't hire me because of too much experience, too much education, or the whole overqualified nonsense. I need the chance to earn pittance as much as the next guy!
At this rate it looks like I'll be headed to the unemployment line, and then maybe an OWS rally somewhere.
Have we gone coo coo as a society?
