Job Market II

this job hunt thing is rough. i’ve been look­ing at the National Park ser­vice, and re­lat­ed jobs, the Smithsonian, Discovery Channel, National Geographic…but all of the job open­ings are aimed at peo­ple that have 2 – 3 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in the field. no one wants some ap­par­ent­ly wet be­hind the ears col­lege kid. i’ve got the skills, just not the ex­pe­ri­ence, and i would think that back­ground in both an­thro­pol­o­gy and film would be ap­peal­ing to these folks. i haven’t got my cov­er let­ters ready yet but i hope when who­ev­er is in charge of hir­ing sees my qual­i­fi­ca­tions they will re­al­ize i am an as­set. that’ll take some luck in the in-one-ear-out-the-oth­er world of cor­po­rate bu­reau­cra­cy.
