Job Hunt Emails

I hadn't been saving every last email about job stuff. Some of them, when it became clear I was out of the running, I just deleted from my machine. But here are the emails I have saved, so far, and printed out. The 2-liter bottle of Diet Coke is there for scale as well as caffeine. I feel kinda like Stephen King, when as a young writer he would slap every rejection notice on a nail sticking out of the wall above his desk. Except I am not sure they make nails this thick. I'll go with "stack", instead.

All hail the mighty stack.

And the positive side to this is that Stephen King eventually made it BIG. Keep your chin up!!! :-)

I was thinking the same thing as Sue!

That is one massive pile of papers, but that only means you're close to success.

Rol said...

Wow. Now you're depressing me. ;-)

But us fellow BA English types need to stick together for reassurance. There has to be a light at the end of the tunnel!

lots of us BA English types saw the light early on and went on to law school. That worked. Working in firm with 25 BA English (and history, philosophy, political science) types right now and no shortage of work

Yes, I shall stand on the paper stack and the added height will be just the thing.

Yeah, coulda, shoulda, woulda, now I'm in no position to go to law school.
