I’m starting to realize that I don’t actually want a real (i.e. office-type) job when I go back to Toronto. I’m starting to realize that I’d really rather just work at a photo developing store or a coffee shop or cafe or something like that. I think that would make me a bit happier than a desk job right now, and it would make it easier for me to do school on the side too.

Now all I have to do is find a cafe or photo shop job for late summer/early fall and I’m set. Except that every photo shop job I’ve applied for says I’m overqualified. Stupid catch-22.

    revise your resume for the jobs you apply for… I had to do that to find a job that’d pay the bills.

    Ahhh…you see
    If you’re overqualified & you want the job.
    LIE 🙂

    My problem currently that in my “office type job” the only way to get a raise or a promotion is with “years of experience”.
    My opinion: Bullshit.
    If you work for 10 years and are absolutely useless, why should you be hired over me?

      I’m with you on the ‘years of experience’ thing. Just because someone’s been doing something for years doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve been doing it well.

      I’ve never been quite good at lying… I’ll have to see what I can come up with I guess. 😉

        Odd… I don’t think it ever posted the full reply, either.
