  •  I'm pretty depressed. (4+ / 0-)

    I just graduated in May with my Master's degree in Public Administration and have been on the market since April. I've sent out over 100 resumes and heard back from three. Unfortunately, my appearance, as a very readable queer person isn't helping my odds with some employers. I feel so jaded. I have a phone interview today, but in the back of my mind I'm thinking, "Why would they want a big ole dyke representing them?". I'm running out of money, luckily I have a partner who will help cover things, but I'd prefer to bring in an income. I'm so scared that I won't be able to find a job. Even though I'm having a hard time, I know there are people who have it much worse. I'm so ashamed of my country, I'm so angry that no one seems to care about our unemployment rate. Everyone deserves a job.
