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.
