Sign of the Times.

Went to a job fair today.   There was a line around the block.   We waited and finally were let in.   Inside there was a total of 15 employers there, of those Cookie Lee and Avon were two of them.   Not a single employer had a technology job.     All the positions were sales positions which I am just not a good fit for.   I HATE SALES!!!    So pretty much was a waste of my time.

This afternoon we got a notice from Bank of America that they are suspending the line of credit on our house due to the house dropping in value.   Yes, I know owe more than my house is worth.   I am so thinking about walking away from this dump and starting over.

I've found job fairs to be a tremendous waste of time in the past as well as in the now. I went to one a few months ago in Seattle, & also to a couple back in 1997-98 in Phoenix during the tech boom & the cast of characters was the same: sales positions or hospitality/foodservice/janitorial/delivery etc. positions that barely paid above minimum wage. Or 911 dispatchers in jurisdictions 30-50 miles away from where I lived.

Seems in every economy there are always a lot of openings for sales... probably because so few people really want to be in sales.
