After my Fox interview everyone said "You should write a book", so that is what I've been doing for the last few months. With the help of a kind benefactor I have been able to get by on modest means, but it hasn't been enough and I can't depend on it forever. So between writer's block and the realities of struggling to get by I've been looking for a full time job.
Aside from my impeccable liberal credentials all of my job experience has been in the service industry with a few years of management experience mostly in food service, but some customer service and sales, that kind of thing. I make one hell of a salesman. In the past I've been getting by on donations and the occasional free lance writing job I can land but those free lance jobs have dried up, so I find myself going to interview after interview, sending in resume after resume and coming up with nothing.
So, here is the deal. I am a hell of a spokesman, I'm smart, I'm good at what I do and I can learn anything, so, what do I have to do to get a job?
slightly more below the orange nimbus cloud of hope . . .
At this point it doesn't matter if I am flipping burgers or working on a political campaign. I want to earn an honest living that allows me to provide for myself and my loved ones. I'd very much prefer to do something that helps working class people but I can't be picky anymore, I need a job.
So I'm posting this just to vent a bit as well as to solicit some advice. I figured my readers deserve to know why I haven't been posting as much as I used to, so the cat is out of the bag, I'm working on a new book and I'm looking for a job. I will gladly tell you all more about the book in another post in the near future and I have some more exciting news to share, but more on that some other time . . .
To clarify, I don't want unpaid volunteer work, I don't want an unpaid internship and I am not interested in traveling away from NYC. I want a paying job.
Any advice or good wishes are welcome, and any one else who shares my position is more than welcome to share their experiences here.
I leave the floor open to you
