  •  Thank you for posting this! (11+ / 0-)

    I've long said that unless you're rich (i.e. don't need the money) job hunting is among the most dehumanizing experiences anyone can go through.  It's all manner of ugly, but you do a very good job of spelling out the specifics of the ugliness.

    I'd add one other thing to it: networking.  Networking is something that some people can do quite naturally, or is a necessary part of their job, but to a lot of us, it can be its own brand of hell.  The idea that you have to sidestep the whole system to get someone to be your patron to get a job?  It just reinforces the whole corrupt megilla, IMHO.

    But I'm doing it anyway, and trying to make the best of it.  (I'm a molecular virologist by trade).  One good thing I will say about it: you meet a lot of interesting people when you start trading business cards in earnest.
