Tuesday: I apply for a job at a private college in Pennsylvania.
Wednesday: I receive an email from that college saying they received the requisite number of recommendations.
Thursday: I receive an email from that college saying the search has been completed.
I am asking, out loud,
WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE???
What's this life supposed to hold for me? I can't seem to get it right.
I'm good at what I do. Does no one value what I have to offer? Someone tell me. Please.
I'm a former career music educator who also worked in retail sales and management, and spent the last four years working in various library positions. I'm an expert multitasker--but when you're a family man and free-lance musician, you HAVE to be.
If you'd like to see my CV, email me at email@example.com. I'll be happy to talk to you at length about my life and work. Chaim Potok had it right: "It is nice to be rich and terrible to be poor--but the most terrible thing of all is to be useless (In The Beginning)".
