You poor thing- everything about job hunting sucks. Thanks for the pretty though!

PS- Matty has a new vid out!

Uh oh- the linky doesn't work- take out the backslash at the end of the address (after all the numbers) that opens, then it works.

Yow freaking za!

Saw Terminator this weekend. Cute little Anton Yelchin + cute not-so-little Sam Worthington made me very happy.

I haaaate cover letters. Hopefully you won't have to write too many before finding something!

Who can pull off a powder blue suit? Apparently Chris Pine can.

I was afraid cute little Anton being a kick ass resistance fighter wouldn't mesh but it turned out pretty well.

Well, I know *I* feel better. :)

But seriously, I hear you about the letters. I've tried reading how-to guides but they all say something different - and worse, they all say if you don't do what *they* say you'll never be hired, say 'top recruiters.' I have never met a top recruiter, but I have developed a thorough loathing for them.

Cover letters are made of evil and really, I wonder if they do any good? My mom used to hire for her department (way back when) and she never read the cover letters.

Cover letters are stoopid *pouts*

Chris and his blue eyes *flails* I have such a thing for blue eyes. Especially paired with dark hair. Oh hello, Chris :D

The greatest thing ever is applying for jobs online...almost no cover letters to write! Do you guys have things like Monster.com and such?

HAAAAAAAAAATE writing that shit.

Worst part was that this was for an on-line application. Instructions: "...please ensure your cover letter and resume are in one document..." Me: "Crap. Does this mean I should write a cover letter? Crap crap crap."

Yep, we have monster.ca and workopolis.ca. Those are our 2 big ones. I hate the fact the majority are postings by headhunters though.

Oh, NOT FAIR when the online jobs require cover letters.

Yeah, I ran into a lot of head hunters job postings too. Those annoy me greatly for some reason. Hopefully you'll find a good one. You know I found some really good stuff on Craiglist too...is that in Canada too?

I was talking to R telling her that our anniversary of meeting in person is coming up!! Mine and yours too! Can you believe it's been 4 years already? Although, it feels like it's been longer!

Craigslist for job postings? I've never thought of that.

Awwww, June 7th is our anniversary :) OK, I totally had to look that up. 4 years. Unbelievable. We should do something special.

I was let go about a week and a half ago. They blamed the economy. So now am job hunting and hoping this will lead to something better.

I approve of the Captain in this post. But not the jobfail, which most of my friends seem to be seeing a lot of. D: I is sorry!!!!
