job search in the city

 job searching is always ‘interesting’.  (that’s the kindest word i can come up with at the moment)

many people believe it’s hard to find a job these days due to the economy.  i don’t blame the economy.  i do wonder why the peeps who placed these ads get to have a paying job and i don’t.

Assistant Director, Little Angels Education Program:

Little Angels Head Start is a program designed to improve the lives of low income children and families by providing exceptional preschool education to 3 and 4 year old children. . . .

To be considered, interested applicants must submit a cover letter and resume along with salary requirements.
Resume’s without salary will not be excepted.

i suppose spelling skills aren’t absolutely necessary when teaching 3 year old children, but still . . .

$400 –Participants needed (ages 45 -60) for Memory & Metabolism Study at NYU Med Center.

A research study at NYU Medical Center is looking for adults ages 45 — 60 for a study on metabolism and brain function.

All participants should not have any medical (other than Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol), neurological, or psychological problems and should be a native English speaker (or have received most of their education in English). (or, american born only)  (source)

and another thing . . . do so many people now have diabetes, high blood pressure & high cholesterol that they are no longer considered medical problems?

I not only use all the brains that I have, but all that I can borrow.

  2. I soooo, needed this today. I recently went on a job interview and the person interviewing me ask me the strangest questions. You know the scenario questions from some weird Matrix no one else has ever visited. Thanks for the post, great job!

  3. I just love your sense of humor. What can you do but just laugh at the craziness, and in NYC, I’m sure there is so much of it. But such a wealth of subjects about which to write. I’ve really enjoyed looking through your blog. I live in the rural south, which has its own ‘craziness’. But I often need a big city fix and I thank you for fulfilling that need for today. People never cease to amaze me! Keep laughing! And thank you for visiting my blog.
