I've started applying to jobs in the area. I've had one interview so far, which is actually better than what I had back in Idaho. It took me about 200 resumes before I got an interview there and only about 10 here. . . even though the interview sucked and I didn't get the job at least I had an inteview. That makes me feel better about my prospects here. I guess we'll see if that feeling actually turns out to be right. That's another thing I plan for the three week break between semesters--send out more resumes. Fingers crossed that I either find something that is completely stress free, or at least tangentially related to my studies.
Interviewing, however, has brought back a whole bunch of feelings that basically sum up to social inadequacy. It's hard enough to talk to people I actually like, let alone to complete strangers. And if I have to rely on the interview process to determine my job then I'm never going to have a good job...because people don't generally like me very much. Especially not upon the first meeting.
Oh well, it's just a feeling. I'll get over it. I hope.
