job prospects

Not that I’ve heard anything back from the ones to which I’ve sent applications, but… I’m listing them for optimism’s sake. Not that I’m really looking to get another job immediately either. In fact, I don’t really know why I’m looking for something right now, to be honest – I just want to go back home and get in shape, then move forward. Gosh, I hope I don’t get any of these…

Applied:
Associate Editor position in Gaithersburg, Md.
Grant Writer in Tucson, Ariz.

Yet to apply:
Education Associate in New York, N.Y.
Senior Editorial Specialist in New York, N.Y.
Reporter/Editor in New York, N.Y.
Publications Manager in Silver Spring, Md.
Associate Editor in New York, N.Y.
Assistant Editor in Lexington, Ky.

Now, I know Maryland and New York City are not exactly places I can imagine myself living, but if that’s where the interesting jobs are, what can I say? Besides, Tod likes city dwelling, so maybe he’d be more likely to eventually make his way out there. Doubtful, but I can still hope!

Anyway, I’m perfectly qualified for every one of these jobs, and I’m trying to find ways in which to make myself especially desirable. Fortunately, most of these leads came from idealist.org, so I have the non-profit experience to back me up, but other elements of my work at DU will help propel me to the top of the pile for a few of these, especially ones that deal with grants and print production. Wooo…

All right, back to my current job. Yar!

    Kinda stinks there are no jobs in MI :/
    Tucson is nice-ish if you don’t mind the heat.
    Maryland is a decent place, not familiar with the city you mentioned, but the parts I’ve been to were nice.
    NYC is just OMCrazy! If you can avoid driving while there, do it. The city itself isn’t so bad, just people everywhere! And the one-way streets make navigation somewhat exciting.
