On to the real stuff. As many of you know, I'm in the job market in Chicago. Or as I like to call it, I'm currently fUnEmployed. Some may ask: what exactly does that entail? Let me give you a quick run down of a typical day.
8am: Walk to 7-11 across the street for a deliciously inexpensive cup of coffee (with the roommates)
9am: Google the sh*t out of companies I am interested in
11am: Tweet something funny about job searching & check Linkedin
12pm: Write a few cover letters, send some resumes
2pm: Do the insanity workout (with the roommates)
3pm: Send some resumes
Okay so that might be a bit exaggerated- I'm not usually in bed by 8 and I eat sometimes too. You get the gist. Most of my friends in Chicago are in the same boat. Occasionally we get together to play football or roam the streets- but for the most part we're full speed ahead at landing our next gig. Although we're trying to make of fUnEmployment, this cycle is beginning to get a bit tedious and repetitive. Yesterday a friend shared this video with me... Today this video is going viral. Check it out. We could all use a little pep talk!
"The world needs you to stop being boring... Yeah, You!"
PS. This kids got my vote
