Friends and Resumes

Submitted by AnthonyS on March 24, 2010 – 2:18 amComments

Being jobless is…AWESOME.  I know everyone’s writing about the unemployed life, but that’s because everyone is unemployed, at least as far as I can tell, so I plan on continuing the trend.  Although I have a part time job turning my brain into mush as a front desk clerk at the local gym, in my spare time I enjoy cooking, music, feeling unemployed, and applying to every conceivable business in the hopes that someone will read my vapid resume and say, “Yes, I will give this random person a job.” Of course that won’t happen, and I’ve spent many hours locked in my room, wallowing in a bed of tears while working feverishly on cover letters and resumes.

Fortunately, a close friend recently returned to the country and found himself in the same situation.  So we decided to combine forces. Not only have I vastly improved my resume (which has no real substance to it…yet), but I’ve had a great time doing it.  Are we the most efficient workers? No, certainly not: we go to have coffee and come back two hours later with nothing to show for it but jittery hands.  And maybe wisdom; that’s what I’d like to think.  While I understand that applying to respectable businesses while working on a bottle of wine might not be the most intelligent choice I will ever make, I feel fairly confident that my friend and I will one day think back—while sitting in our cubicles—and say to ourselves, “Man, I wish I were unemployed again.”
