Vita Combibo

I don't know why I have such anxiety about job hunting.... It's almost oxymoronic. I'm pretty good when I get into a job interview, but actually doing the job hunting part and sending out resumes and slogging through hundreds of job board posts that don't apply to my skills is just so hard for me. And that in and of itself is ironic: I love slogging through government documents, Congressional Record pages, microfiche stacks, and thick tomes of numbers and stats. I can quote baseball statistics and obscure facts from Jeopardy, and I am a skilled debater on political issues, but I cannot bring myself to wade through employment listings looking for jobs I can apply for.

Employers who Google search my name will come upon this blog and wonder why in the Hell someone who can actually write coherent sentences isn't employed yet. It's because I just can't do job hunting. I don't get it either... it's just the way it is for me right now.

So employers out there who do Google me, know this: you give me the interview and hire me, and I will not let you down. I work efficiently, hard, and honestly. I'm loyal to a fault, expressive, authentic, and mature. I'm serious, moral, behaviorally appropriate, and I take pride in a job well done. You won't find many candidates quite like that out there. Give me a chance in a real, honest-to-goodness, salaried job that lets me use my unique talents, and I will not disappoint you.

I know not many people actually read this blog unless I use some keywords like "Jeff Flake" or "Arizona State Legislature" or "Arizona Diamondbacks," but I hope this reaches those people whom I need to hear it.


  1. It is so hard for me to sell myself, so I understand your job hunt problem. Odd, because I am a trial lawyer & in a sense sell all the time for clients, but selling yourself is a whole 'nother arena.

    And, yes, you can write! A job will come (I know: easy for me to say.

    As for politics, I could not resist posting about Idiot V
