So, there hasn't really been anything blog-worthy happening in my life. I still haven't heard back about the Resident Supervisor (House Mom) job. Life is pretty boring.
I've contemplated looking/applying for more jobs. But the thought of that makes me very frustrated.
Since all of the jobs I'm applying for are at colleges/universities, 99% of them use an online application system.
This means that you create a username/password, fill out all your personal information, re-type your resume and references, then upload your resume, references and cover letter.
Yes, I have re-typed (aka, copy and pasted awkwardly) my resume over 100 times. This wouldn't be so bad if each section didn't have its own bar to type in. So I have to copy/paste/type my reference's first name, then the last name, then the place of employment, then the relationship, then the e-mail, then the phone number. All individually. Its a lot of work. And it sucks.
I'm also competing with people who have a Masters for these entry level jobs. "Bachelor's required, Master's preferred" pretty much means "Masters Required" or "If you don't have a Masters, we're just going to pass." I haven't even gotten one interview.
I keep seeing all these amazing jobs on HigherEdJobs that I would LOVE to do and think I would be really good at. But theres only so much an awesome cover letter can do for you when you don't have your Masters.
