k. jobless once again

Guess i have time to make an entry now that i'm once again searching for income.
It sure isn't like the old days when you could just walk in a business and meet someone face to face and apply for a job. I really dislike the impersonal web entry process. How do I even know they got it? Also what's up with the "keyword" thing? They don't look at your application if you haven't entered the correct keyword that the computer recognizes and so will forward to H.R.-what is that??

Well, this last job as a...educational scholastic evaluater, as i call it(scorer) was interesting. At least I know it's not just me. There were lawyers, teachers, professors, scientists, all looking for work, and that $12/hr. job is what 300 of us found. You had to have a degree to even apply for the position and not only take a test to get in, also a test every day to qualify...what do those with a high school degree or not even that do? How do people who live "in the circle" of Atlanta survive, it's so expensive...

i had no idea you had a blog.. don't think i could ever reveal anything about myself via the web. i have a secret identity to protect!
i'm sure your next gig is just around the corner.
