The Hunt

I know I said I’d write every Sunday. I was gone most of yesterday. We went out to see family and check on job opportunities, and see another college I might end up in. I didn’t find a job. But, I realized that my method of looking for work is probably completely ineffective. I haven’t done too much walking in places and talking to people. Today, I spent about 15 minutes talking to a cabinetmaker in a nearby town, and realized that I’d bypassed the process of applying and getting an interview to work on his impression of me. I walked in and asked. He didn’t have openings, but I gave him my name and number. I’d done some reading and remembered hearing that we seek jobs in the opposite way they seek employers.
